Nomir Medical to Present Positive Onychomycosis Data for Its Noveon(R) Dual Wavelength Device
Nomir Medical Technologies, a leader in the development of optical energy technologies for anti-infective medical applications, announced today that the Company will present an abstract detailing positive in vitro and in vivo human data from its study of onychomycosis (toe nail fungus) using Noveon(R), a novel dual wavelength optical energy device. Noveon is designed to effect near-infrared photo-inactivation of fungi and bacteria at energies and temperatures that are safe to normal and healthy tissue.
The detailed data will be presented in a digital session at the New Cardiovascular Horizons “Wound Management of the Diabetic Foot and Wound Healing” conference in New Orleans, September 10-13, 2008.
In May 2008, Nomir initiated a pivotal product registration trial for Noveon for the onychomycosis indication.
Nomir Medical Technologies, Inc. is a medical device company with a product pipeline of optical energy therapeutics being developed for multiple clinical applications. Nomir’s light-based systems target the elimination of bacterial and fungal infections, while also promoting healthy tissue recovery. This potential therapy-altering technology may enhance the effectiveness of, or even reduce the need for antibiotics and antifungal agents, and may be associated with fewer treatment side-effects. Nomir has a broad patent portfolio with pending systems, methods and unique photobiological mechanism claims for near infrared photodamage to bacterial and fungal pathogens. www.nomirmedical.com
