Novan's SB204 Could Be First Topical Sebum Inhibitor
Date:2/28/2013

DURHAM, N.C., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Novan Therapeutics, a clinical-stage drug development company, today announced in vitro and animal testing data indicating that the company's drug candidate, SB204, could lead to a topical treatment to reduce oil production in the skin.  SB204 is being developed as a new therapy for acne which is the most common skin disease in the United States, affecting more than 50 million people.

Novan-sponsored research conducted in the lab of Dr. Thiboutot revealed that nitric oxide-releasing compounds could reduce sebum production in vitro using immortalized human sebocytes.  The study results demonstrated that Novan's drug candidate showed a statistically significant decrease in insulin-induced lipid production as early as 24 hours after a single treatment.   

In a separate study to further expand upon the company's unique discovery, topical application of nitric oxide-releasing SB204 inhibited the growth of a hamster flank organ by more than 50% compared to vehicle control.  "We are really excited about these results because this now gives us two potential pathways by which SB204 can shut down the production of seb
