Galderma Announces Top-line Results from Phase 2 Clinical Dose-Escalating Study with Azzalure ® / Dysport ® (abobotulinumtoxinA)
Galderma today announced top-line results from a Phase 2 study on the impact of dose escalation on the duration of effect and the efficacy and safety of a single dose of Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) for Injection (50U, 75U, 100U or 125U) versus placebo for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). Results showed that the study met its primary endpoint, with significantly more subjects treated with Dysport® at all four doses achieving a composite two grade improvement responder rate than those treated with placebo at one month. Data from secondary endpoints demonstrated promising results for a potential prolonged duration of effect correlated with higher doses. Dysport®, also marketed as Azzalure® in some countries, is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe glabellar lines in adults less than 65 years of age.
“We are encouraged that these study results demonstrate that a single dose of Dysport® has a rapid onset, long-lasting effect and is well tolerated,” said John H. Joseph, M.D., investigator for the study and director of The Clinical Testing Center of Beverly Hills. “At all doses tested in the trial, Dysport® had a strong safety profile, including very few cases of eyelid ptosis.”
Phase 2 Dose-Escalating Study Design and Results
The multicenter, randomized, dose-ranging, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2 study enrolled 401 subjects ages 18 to 65 with moderate to severe glabellar lines at maximum frown. Study participants were randomized 4:1 to receive a single dose of Dysport® (50U, the dose in the FDA-approved label, 75U, 100U or 125U) or placebo and followed for nine months. The primary objective of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of a single dose of Dysport® as assessed by the composite responder rate at maximum frown at one month. Secondary objectives evaluated other measures of efficacy as well as duration of treatment response, subject satisfaction, aesthetic improvement and onset of treatment response.
Top-line efficacy results showed that the study met its primary endpoint. After one month, all dose groups treated with Dysport® showed a statistically significant composite (investigator and subject-assessed) ≥2-grade improvement when compared with placebo. Favorable results were achieved for all doses in the secondary objectives, including a ≥1-grade improvement and subject satisfaction throughout the study duration. Dysport® was well tolerated with a similar safety profile across all doses tested. Treatment-related adverse events were mild or moderate in severity and transient, and no treatment-related serious adverse events were reported.
“This phase 2 study underscores our commitment to bring efficacious products and long-lasting results to customers,” said Baldo Scassellati Sforzolini, Global Head of Research & Development at Galderma. “Based on these encouraging safety and long-term efficacy results, as well as continued patient satisfaction, we are evaluating future clinical studies.”

Sumitomo SHI FW fluidized bed technology – upscaling thermochemical energy storage to a commercial level1.12.2020 17:47:00 CET | Press release
One of the largest obstacles in using renewable energy efficiently is the possibility to store energy on a large scale. SaltX Technology AB has partnered with Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) to solve this in terms of heat energy. "The storage solution is like a "salt battery". It is based on a basic chemical process with a very common material, calcium oxide produced from limestone, with enhanced properties by our nanocoating process", explains Carl-Johan Linér, CEO of SaltX. Simplified, when calcium oxide reacts with water, it turns into calcium hydroxide and releases heat. Respectively, when calcium hydroxide is dried, it absorbs heat. SFW has designed a fluidized bed pilot reactor, which serves as the point of discharge, where the salt releases the heat. The new 100 kW reactor in SaltX's new testing installation in Sweden, near Stockholm, combines the performance of SaltX's patented nanocoated salt with SFW's fluidized bed technology. "SFW's technology has huge potential to take the salt batt
PierianDx Announces Expanded Partnership with Illumina to Support Cancer Genomic Reporting in Global Markets1.12.2020 17:00:00 CET | Press release
PierianDx, the leading clinical genomics informatics company, today announced an expanded partnership with Illumina to enable PierianDx genomic reporting solutions for use with AmpliSeq™ for Illumina® Focus Panel, AmpliSeq™ for Illumina® Myeloid Panel and the TruSight™ Hereditary Cancer Panel. Adding these panels expands the existing relationship between Illumina and PierianDx, which currently covers use of the PierianDx platform to support genomic reporting in key global markets for the TruSight Oncology 500 portfolio. Performing a comprehensive NGS test and delivering an accompanying genomic report were once only accomplished via a send-out test to a commercial lab. However, in performing tests as send-outs, healthcare organizations relinquish control over samples, turnaround time, and quality. The PierianDx platform enables healthcare organizations to accelerate their precision medicine programs by empowering them to create accurate, timely, and comprehensive clinical genomic report
Rhizen Pharmaceuticals Announces US FDA Acceptance of its IND Application for RP7214 in SARS-CoV-2 Infection; Phase 1 Clinical Trial of RP7214 Set to Begin Early December 20201.12.2020 16:01:00 CET | Press release
Rhizen Pharmaceuticals, a clinical-stage oncology-focussed biopharmaceutical company, today announced the approval of its Investigational New Drug (IND) application by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to study its oral DHODH inhibitor for SARS-CoV-2 infection. The company announced that initial study shall evaluate single ascending doses of RP7214 in healthy volunteers and that dosing is expected to commence in early December 2020. The company also announces positive feedback from the FDA during its pre-IND discussion on its plans to follow-up this study with a multiple-ascending dose study in Covid-19 patients. Dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (DHOHD) is a key enzyme involved in pyrimidine biosynthesis in the cell. RP7214 is potentially a best-in-class selective DHODH inhibitor that has shown potent inhibition of Covid-19 viral replication. RP7214 has also been studied extensively across multiple inflammation models where it has demonstrated excellent anti-inflammatory activity
