DermTech and Stiefel Laboratories, Inc. to Further Evaluate EGIR(TM) Technology
Date:7/15/2009

LA JOLLA, Calif., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- DermTech, Inc., a biotechnology company developing non-invasive molecular diagnostics for the early detection of disease plus additional applications, announced that it has entered into the second part of a feasibility study using DermTech's advanced EGIR(TM) technology to help Stiefel identify specific genetic markers involved in acne. The two companies will now move forward with a proof-of-concept study to assess the use of the technology to understand the pathophysiology of acne.

Stiefel is the world's largest independent dermatology company.

"Stiefel is one of the dermatology industry's clear pioneers and is well known for innovation in the field," said George Schwartz, CEO, DermTech. "We are looking forward to together embarking on this study that will employ our advanced, genetic-based technology and believe it will appropriately be the first ever to assess the relationship between genetic changes in the skin over time and the observable clinical effects of a marketed acne treatment."

"Stiefel is committed to using the most advanced, reliable tools for the development and continued refinement of our dermatology products and candidates," said Gavin Corcoran, M.D., Chief Scientific Officer, Stiefel. "We believe that DermTech's EGIR technology, based on the most recent understanding and application of genetics to disease, offers a very strong fit with our mission to introduce breakthrough products."
