CUUR HEALTH is dedicated to maintaining the largest data set of infectious disease targets available in the world.
Nail Infections have historically been difficult to accurately diagnose and expensive to treat. Many organisms have unique nutritional requirements not identified through a standard culture which can be delayed and is often an inappropriate treatment. Not to mention, bacteria can exist within the wound as multi-layered microbial communities, known as biofilms, surrounded by a protective extracellular slime layer that is produced by the organisms within the wound.
CUUR HEALTH optimizes care and cost by identifying the relevant agents of disease. Through our proprietary onychodystrophy DNA testing solution, we help providers determine the safest, effective oral and topical treatment in wound and nail diagnostics, limb preservation, avoidance of adverse events and prevention of unnecessary antibiotic prescribing.
- Over 3 million new cases a year of nail infections in the US
- 20% of new cases are found in 60-70 year old patients and 50% are over 70
