An infrared pulsed laser was used to irradiate toenails with visible signs of bacterial/fungal infections.  Seventeen subjects with both great toes involved were recruited in a podiatric private practice.  Toes were randomized to receive either a single treatment or no treatment.  The treatment was tolerated by all subjects without anesthesia and there were no occurrences of serious adverse effects.  eleven out of 14 (79%) treated toes improved.  Improvement ranged from 2.1  to 6.1 mm over 90 days following a single treatment.  There was a highly significant difference (p<0.001) between treated and untreated toes for nail bed clearing.
