BASEL, Switzerland, Dec. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dermavant Sciences, a dermatology-focused subsidiary of Roivant Sciences, today announced that the company will present new data on cerdulatinib during the 3 Annual Inflammatory Skin Disease Summit (ISDS) taking place Dec. 12-15, 2018, in Vienna, Austria.
Dermavant will present Phase 1b data on the safety and efficacy of cerdulatinib for the treatment of atopic dermatitis in both poster format and an oral presentation. The company also will present preclinical data on the suppression of inflammation and skin repigmentation demonstrated by cerdulatinib for the treatment of vitiligo in poster format.
Dermavant is developing topical cerdulatinib as a potential first-in-class steroid-free anti-inflammatory inhibitor of the JAK and Syk pathways that may inhibit the effects of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Given its unique mechanism of action, Dermavant believes that topical cerdulatinib, if approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), could provide an important topical treatment option for atopic dermatitis as well as other inflammatory skin conditions such as vitiligo, a condition characterized by skin depigmentation for which no FDA-approved treatments currently exist.
Posters, along with dates, times, and locations of data sessions, are highlighted below:
