    Background: The evaluation method for the diagnosis of tinea unguium is mainly microscopy. New antidermatophyte monoclonal antibody have been developed that recognizes the cell wall polysaccharide antigen of filamentous fungi, including dermatophytes, and applied it to immunochromatography. Some scientists focused on this technology, improved it, and determined that this test method provided useful information for a diagnosis of tinea unguium by analyzing large numbers of clinical specimens. However, these studies were carried out by a tentative method. Objective: Establishment of the usage of this test strip for clinical use and the certification of the stability during long-term storage. Methods: Various fungi and bacteria were cultured and extracted by extractio.. Read More»
