“We look forward to unveiling the latest data and research across our innovative dermatology pipeline and portfolio at this year’s VCS symposium,” said Bill Andriopoulos, Vice President, Medical Affairs Galderma U.S. “Our commitment to patients is underscored by the dermatological solutions we are investigating and bringing to market. We are excited to continue to realize the potential of our product portfolio and share our findings with the larger scientific community.”
The data presentations stem from Galderma’s neuromodulators relabotulinumtoxinA (QM1114), an investigational product, and Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA)* as well as its collagen stimulator, Sculptra® (injectable poly-L-lactic acid).
There will be two scientific presentations featuring the latest READY-1 and READY-2 Phase 3 data of relabotulinumtoxinA, a proprietary novel, ready-to-use, liquid formulation of investigational botulinum toxin, for the treatment of glabellar lines and lateral canthal lines. There will also be data presented from across three individual trials investigating the subject-relevant outcomes of on-label 50U Dysport for the treatment for moderate-to-severe glabellar lines. Additionally, data from NCT03780244, an open-label extension study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Sculptra after changes in reconstitution and injection procedure, will be presented at the symposium.
