- Completes Enrollment in REALISE 1 Phase 3 Trial for RT001 Topical for Crow’s Feet Lines –
- Moves Phase 2 Dose-Escalating Trial for RT002 Injectable for Cervical Dystonia into Second Cohort -

NEWARK, Calif., May 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:RVNC), a biotechnology company developing botulinum toxin products for use in aesthetic and therapeutic indications, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.

Recent Highlights and Upcoming Milestones

  • DaxibotulinumtoxinA Topical Gel (RT001)
    • Completed enrollment of 450 patients in REALISE 1, a Phase 3 trial for patients with moderate to severe lateral canthal lines (crow’s feet). Revance plans to release 28-day top-line safety and efficacy results from this Phase 3 trial by the end of the second quarter of 2016.
  • DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection (RT002)
    • Positive 6-month Phase 2 clinical results from the BELMONT Phase 2 Active Comparator Trial of RT002 were presented in a podium presentation at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) annual meeting in March 2016.
    • Scheduled the End-of-Phase 2 meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regarding RT002 injectable for the treatment of glabellar (frown) lines. Following the End-of-Phase 2 meeting, Revance expects to initiate a global Phase 3 clinical program in this indication during the second half of 2016.
    • Completed interim planned safety analysis of the first cohort of 12 patients in a dose-escalating Phase 2 clinical trial of RT002 injectable for the treatment of cervical dystonia. RT002 appeared to be safe and well-tolerated in the first cohort of 12 subjects. Upon review of the 6 Week safety data by an independent Data Monitoring Committee, the committee unanimously approved initiation of the second of three cohorts in this dose-escalating study, with enrollment of the first patient Cohort 2 taking place in April. Revance expects to report additional safety, efficacy and duration results in the second half of 2016.
  • Appointed Roman G. Rubio, MD, a seasoned executive with extensive drug development experience, as Senior Vice President, Clinical Development.

“We are pleased with the continued progress of our investigational neurotoxin drug product candidates, RT001 topical and RT002 injectable, which have the potential to be the first differentiated neurotoxins to be approved by the FDA in nearly 30 years,” said Dan Browne, President and Chief Executive Officer of Revance. “Both RT001 topical and RT002 injectable have significant milestones approaching before the end of this quarter. For RT002, it’s the End-of-Phase 2 meeting with the FDA that would allow us to finalize plans to begin our global Phase 3 program to treat frown lines. For RT001, it’s the topline results from our Phase 3 trial for the treatment of crow’s feet, potentially putting us one step closer to launching the first commercially available topically delivered botulinum toxin. Our path to growth is clear, as we continue in our endeavors to offer physicians, patients and payers a fundamentally distinctive neurotoxin experience.”

Summary Financial Results

Research and development expenses for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016 were $12.4 million compared to $9.3 million for the same period in 2015. The increase in research and development expenses is primarily attributable to personnel costs and expenditures related to ongoing clinical trials.

General and administrative expenses for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016 were $7.5 million compared to $6.0 million for the same period in 2015. The increase in general and administrative expenses is primarily attributable to personnel costs, legal matters, and administrative activities.
