ViaDerma, Inc., to Initiate Upcoming Field Trial of Comparison for Onychomycosis

LOS ANGELES, March 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ViaDerma, Inc. (OTCQB:VDRM) (The Company), a specialty pharmaceutical company devoted to bringing new products to market, is excited to start participating in test trials with a major Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved toenail fungus treatment.

Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of the toenails or fingernails that may involve any part of the nail itself. This infection can cause pain, distress, and deformity that could produce serious physical and occupational restrictions, as well as affect quality of life.

Recently registered as a medication by the FDA, TetraStem is a liquid tetracycline-based antibiotic that is designed to treat cuts, scrapes, and burns. TetraStem has also shown success in treating diabetic foot sores, acne, and fighting methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)infections.

ViaDerma introduced an upcoming trial, slotted to take place this coming spring, that will feature their lead product, TetraStem, against a well-known prescription treatment for Onychomycosis. Trials will begin taking place with patients receiving both treatments at 90-day, six months, nine months, and one year lapses of time. Previously used as an off-label treatment for Onychomycosis with proven results, ViaDerma believes that TetraStem will serve as a possible more effective and more affordable option than other leading brands.

TetraStem has been seen in private off-label practice to hold an 86% success rate after only 12 weeks of use. In comparison, the competition has only seen an 18% success rate, requiring 48 weeks of patient use. Not only are these differences staggering, but to add to that, a bottle of TetraStem retails for only $39.99, whereas the same size has been sold for more than $500 through other brands.

"We are excited about expanding our lead product to treat an ever-expanding list of needs of patients who may be looking for new treatment options," commented Dr. Christopher Otiko, CEO of ViaDerma. "I believe, with high hopes, that these trials will produce the results that we, as a company, have been awaiting."
