Poster: Phase 2 trial of a Novel Botanical Topical Anti-Inflammatory Drug, in adults with Mild-to-Moderate Atopic Dermatitis. This poster summarizes results from the phase 2 clinical study in adult patients with mild-to-moderate atopic dermatitis. In the study, the efficacy of Thykamine™ cream was comparable to other non-steroidal topical therapies approved for the treatment of mild-to-moderate AD, while demonstrating a favorable safety and tolerability profile. Thykamine™ Clinical Development Program Update Devonian also provided an update on its Thykamine™ program activities in advance of the WCD Meeting. To support the clinical program of Thykamine™, the company is establishing its final formulation manufacturing activities in a leading global contract development and manufacturing. The transfer and validation process should be completed within the next months. Devonian will then, as a priority, file to regulatory agencies a phase 2/3 protocol in pediatric patient population with mild-to-moderate atopic dermatitis. As second and third priorities, the corporation expects to file a phase2 clinical study protocol in radiodermatitis associated to radiotherapy and a phase 2 clinical study in Hand and Foot Syndrome associated to chemotherapy. “We are thrilled to see the vast potential of Thykamine™ as a novel treatment option for pediatric patients with atopic dermatitis and other skin inflammatory conditions” commented Mr Pierre Montanaro, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation. “While our focus is on pediatric patient population suffering of Atopic dermatitis, there are clearly unmet medical needs for cancer patients with chemotherapy-related Hand and Foot Syndrome as well as for patients with radiotherapy-related radiodermatitis1.
