New topical medication on market: Jublia topical solution

Once in a while I browse the web searching for updates regarding nail fungus research and new substances and treatment methods. As of now it seems a new thing is on the market. The company that markets Jublia is called Valeant and their website and their own press release can be seen on http://ir.valeant.com/investor-relations/news-releases/news-release-details/2013/Valeant-Pharmaceuticals-Announces-Approval-Of-Jublia-For-The-Treatment-Of-Onychomycosis-In-Canada/default.aspx . 

It describes some decent study results where between 15-17 % of patients were cured after a full year being medicated and the substance is applied on top of the nail like for example ciclopirox nail lacquer. 

Apparently this is so new that it is only approved for sale in Canada but those who live there and are struggling with nail fungus at least have something new to try. The test results are being released by the company itself and are moderately promising but hey, it is another option at least. If it was available where I live or could be purchased online I would give it a shot.

Check back for more updates, feedback, positive or negative is always appreciated
