NEWARK, Calif., Jan. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:RVNC), a specialty biopharmaceutical company developing botulinum toxin products for use in aesthetic and therapeutic indications, today defined key 2016 clinical milestones for both of its botulinum toxin drug product candidates, DaxibotulinumtoxinA Topical Gel (RT001) and DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection (RT002). The company also announced its updated expectations for its 2015 year end cash and investments balance.
“We are pleased with our accomplishments in 2015, which reflect continued momentum and advancement across all four of our major clinical programs,” said Dan Browne, President and Chief Executive Officer of Revance. “We continue to develop our drug portfolio pipeline and establish Revance as a viable future competitor in the $3 billion global botulinum toxin market. In 2016, we expect to have both RT001 topical and RT002 injectable in active Phase 3 programs, moving the company closer to potential commercialization.”
RT001 Topical – Phase 3 Program for the Treatment of Lateral Canthal (Crow’s Feet) Lines
The company is actively enrolling patients in its REALISE 1 Phase 3 trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a single, bilateral administration of RT001 topical compared to placebo in patients with moderate to severe crow’s feet. The company plans to release 28-day interim results from this Phase 3 trial in the first half of 2016. In the second half of 2016, Revance then plans to initiate a second Phase 3 efficacy trial and a long-term safety study.
RT001 Topical – Phase 2 Trial for the Treatment of Axillary Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Underarm Sweating)
The company plans to complete its current Phase 2 trial of RT001 topical for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis in the first quarter of 2016 and then expects to initiate an additional, larger Phase 2 hyperhidrosis trial in 2016.
RT002 Injectable – Phase 3 Program for the Treatment of Glabellar (Frown) Lines
Revance plans to report the final results of the BELMONT Phase 2 active comparator clinical trial for the treatment of glabellar (frown) lines and conduct an End-of-Phase 2 meeting with the US Food and Drug Administration in the first half of 2016. The company expects to initiate a Phase 3 clinical program in the second half of 2016, comprised of two Phase 3 efficacy trials and a long-term safety study.
RT002 Injectable – Phase 2 Trial for the Treatment of Cervical Dystonia
The company’s Phase 2 dose-escalating clinical trial of RT002 injectable for the treatment of cervical dystonia is underway, with interim results expected in the first half of 2016.
Update to 2015 Year-End Cash and Investments Expectations
The company now expects its December 31, 2015 cash and investments balance to exceed $250 million. Revance’s prior guidance of more than $245 million was provided on November 9, 2015.
RT001 and RT002 Product Candidates
Revance is currently developing two botulinum toxin type A investigational drug product candidates. DaxibotulinumtoxinA Topical Gel (RT001) is a topical formulation, which has the potential to be the first commercially available non-injectable dose form of botulinum toxin type A. Revance is studying RT001 topical for aesthetic indications, such as crow's feet (wrinkles around the eyes) and therapeutic indications such as axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating). DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection (RT002) is a novel, injectable formulation of botulinum toxin type A designed to be targeted and long lasting. Revance is studying RT002 injectable for aesthetic indications, such as glabellar (frown) lines, and therapeutic uses, such as muscle movement disorders (including cervical dystonia). Both products could have the potential to expand into additional aesthetic and therapeutic indications in the future.
