- Alphyn Biologics presents pediatric data from an atopic dermatitis trial at the European Society for Pediatric Dermatology Congress
ANNAPOLIS, Md., April 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Alphyn Biologics, a clinical-stage dermatology company developing first-in-class multi-target therapies, will present for the first time new pediatric data from its Phase 2a clinical trial of a topical candidate for mild to moderate atopic dermatitis (AD) at the 22nd Congress of the European Society of Pediatric Dermatology (ESPD), to be held May 4-6 in Malaga, Spain. AB-101a is being developed to uniquely treat the immune and bacterial components of AD in patients 2 years to adult. This pediatric population met all primary endpoints of the clinical trial.
"Atopic dermatitis usually appears in childhood and can become a chronic, lifelong disease," said Neal Koller, CEO of Alphyn and sponsor of the research featured in the ESPD poster (P198). "We are hopeful that AB-101a will offer children and their physicians the first AD therapy that addresses the immune system component and bacterial complications of AD, including those commonly associated with staphylococcus (Staphylococcus aureus ) and methicillin-resistant staphylococcus, and have a safety profile that supports continued long-term use."
In January, Alphyn Biologics reported positive results from the first cohort of its Phase 2a clinical trial with AB-101a, a steroid-free topical AD treatment. The trial met all of its primary endpoints, highlighting its potential as a safe and effective treatment of AD that may be effective for long-term continued use. The randomized, double-blind, vehicle-controlled trial is evaluating the AB-101a treatment protocol at multiple centers using standard scales for assessing AD.
