Innovaderm Shines as Key Partner in Clinical Development and Study Management of Newly FDA-Approved Psoriasis Drug, Tapinarof

Share

Innovaderm’s involvement in all phases of the clinical development of tapinarof culminated with a tremendous achievement: the recent approval of Dermavant Sciences’ VTAMA® (tapinarof) cream by the FDA for the treatment of plaque psoriasis in adults.

Discovered in Canada, tapinarof is approved in the United States for the management of psoriasis, a chronic skin condition that causes itchy, scaly patches on different parts of the body and has a significant detrimental effect on quality of life.

“This is a great milestone for patients – one that we have been working towards for years,” says Dr. Robert Bissonnette, Innovaderm’s founder and CEO. “Innovaderm is well-positioned to help companies such as Dermavant drive innovation forward by accompanying them in all stages of their clinical research from protocol writing to data analysis. We not only played an instrumental role through our participation in multicenter phase 2 and 3 studies, but we were also the first to demonstrate tapinarof’s efficacy in proof-of-concept studies in both psoriasis and atopic dermatitis.”

VTAMA® cream is a once-daily, topical medication for psoriasis. Currently, clinical trials are underway to study this medication among patients with atopic dermatitis.

“VTAMA® cream is a non-steroidal topical that is a new chemical entity and the first-in-class therapy to be approved in the topical psoriasis space in 25 years,” says Anna Tallman, PharmaD, Vice-President of Medical Affairs at Dermavant Sciences. “We appreciate the collaboration and partnership with Dr. Bissonnette and Innovaderm to help bring forward an effective new treatment option in the United States that has the potential to benefit adults with plaque psoriasis across the entire disease severity spectrum – from mild to severe.”

Dr. Bissonnette and Tallman recently contributed to an article on the phase 3 tapinarof studies, which was published in the New England Journal of Medicine. To learn more: https://www.nejm.org/doi/pdf/10.1056/NEJMoa2103629
