Title: DRM01 (a Novel Topical Sebum Inhibitor) Demonstrates Safety and Evidence of Efficacy in a Phase 2a, Randomized, Vehicle-Controlled Study in Subjects with Acne Vulgaris, Offering a Novel Approach to Therapy
DRM01 is a novel, topical, small-molecule sebum inhibitor in development for the treatment of acne. Sebum is an oily substance made up of lipids produced by glands in the skin called sebaceous glands, and excessive sebum production is an important aspect of acne that is not addressed by available topical therapies. DRM01 is designed to exert its effect by inhibiting acetyl coenzyme-A carboxylase, an enzyme that plays an important role in the synthesis of fatty acids, a type of lipid that represents an essential component of the majority of sebum lipids.
