Botanix Pharmaceuticals (ASX:BOT) has today provided an update on its dermatology program, focusing on the BTX 1204A canine study for atopic dermatitis and BTX 1702 rosacea study.
The BTX 1204A canine study for atopic dermatitis has now been launched. This will enrol 45 canines and evaluate two formulations of BTX 1204A. Positive data from a pilot study in May has already demonstrated that a new higher dose of synthetic CBD, in a novel Permetrex™ formulation, reduces severity of atopic dermatitis over 28 days – providing strong foundations to extend this program into both animal and human health.
The BTX 1702 rosacea study is also gaining momentum. Despite COVID-19 restrictions, recruitment is progressing according to plan in Australia and New Zealand – with a goal to enrol 120 patients to investigate the safety and tolerability of two different concentrations of BTX1702.
