Company announces Phase 3 READY program of its proprietary, novel, liquid formulation of an investigational botulinum toxin for the treatment of glabellar lines and lateral canthal lines is fully enrolled
Lausanne, Switzerland – October 9, 2020 – Galderma today announced the presentation of data from clinical trials of its aesthetic solutions and pipeline in five abstracts at the virtual American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) 2020 Annual Meeting. The company also announced that it has completed patient enrollment in several clinical trials supporting a Phase 3 program of relabotulinumtoxinA (QM1114), its proprietary novel, ready-to-use, liquid formulation of investigational botulinum toxin, for the treatment of glabellar lines and lateral canthal lines. The Phase 3 program, called READY (RElabotulinumtoxin Aesthetic Development studY), enrolled over 1,900 patients across 60 sites in the United States and Canada in four clinical trials – three multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies and one long-term open-label study.
RelabotulinumtoxinA clinical trials will evaluate rapid onset, long duration, and additional patient measures as part of the large clinical program for this next generation botulinum toxin. The liquid formulation will be ready to use upon arrival and will not require in-office reconstitution before administration, it will reduce preparation time, and has the potential to increase accuracy and improve patient outcomes, in contrast with current treatments that require reconstitution by clinicians before administration. Derived from Galderma’s proprietary strain of Clostridium botulinum bacteria and created using an animal-origin free process, relabotulinumtoxinA will be manufactured in Galderma’s new state-of-the-art Center of Excellence in Aesthetics in Uppsala, Sweden.
“Our patient-first approach to aesthetics innovation has resulted in seven FDA approvals over the last six years. Based on the success of the latest outcomes we’ve shared today, and our continued work to bring patients safe and long-lasting results, we also expect to receive six more approvals in the next three years,” said Dr. Flemming Ornskov, MD, MPH, Chief Executive Officer, Galderma. “The launch of Restylane® Kysse earlier this year has shown the strong demand for new aesthetic solutions to improve the patient and provider experience throughout 2020. Our robust Phase 3 and Phase 4 clinical programs have helped propel the launch of Restylane® Kysse, and the data presented today underscores our relentless focus on meeting the needs of our customers.”
Galderma’s Data Presentations at ASDS 2020
During the ASDS meeting, Galderma will present clinical research findings across its neurotoxin and dermal fillers portfolio. The company’s oral and poster presentations will highlight results from the DREAM (Dysport Real-world Evaluation and Measured satisfaction) study of Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) for Injection*, which demonstrated high levels of patient satisfaction and natural-looking results with only two treatments per year.1 Additionally, Phase 3 clinical research showed that Restylane® Defyne was effective for correction of chin retrusion and was associated with a high degree of patient satisfaction, and Restylane® Kysse was shown to be effective for lip augmentation over a 48-week treatment period with a high degree of patient satisfaction. In a Phase 4 study of Restylane® Kysse, both subjects and their partners were satisfied with the subjects’ lips after treatment.2,3
“The results of the DREAM study showing the long duration of Dysport and high patient satisfaction with treatments given twice a year are especially important as it’s the first toxin to showcase this extended patient satisfaction benefit,”1said Dr. Carolyn Jacob, MD, FAAD, Founder and Medical Director of Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology and an investigator for the DREAM study. “The study data showing that 95% of patients were satisfied or highly satisfied with the aesthetic results of treating the lines between their eyebrows every six months for a year with Dysport should give patients and aesthetic specialists confidence in this treatment regimen.”1
