Dermavant to Present Data from Multiple Clinical Trials of VTAMA® (tapinarof) cream, 1% at the 2022 Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference

– Five posters will highlight clinical data for VTAMA cream for the treatment of plaque psoriasis in adults and for atopic dermatitis in patients as young as two –

LONG BEACH, Calif., and BASEL, Switzerland, Oct. 13, 2022 — Dermavant Sciences, a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to developing and commercializing innovative therapeutics in immuno-dermatology, today announced it will present data from multiple studies of VTAMA® (tapinarof) cream, 1% at the 2022 Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference from October 20-23 in Las Vegas. The poster presentations at the conference will include data on VTAMA cream for the treatment of plaque psoriasis in adults and atopic dermatitis in patients as young as two.

In May, following more than 25 years of minimal innovation in topical psoriasis treatments, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved VTAMA cream for the topical treatment of mild, moderate, and severe plaque psoriasis in adults — with no label restrictions on duration of use or body surface area. As of July 15th, VTAMA cream became the #1 prescribed branded topical treatment for plaque psoriasis in adults.i

The first-in-class, steroid-free, once-daily topical treatment is also under investigation for the treatment of atopic dermatitis in adults and children as young as two. The company anticipates announcing topline results from its pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial program in atopic dermatitis (ADORING 1 and ADORING 2) in the first half of 2023.

The following posters will be viewable in-person in the exhibit hall area at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas and available virtually at the start of the conference.

About Psoriasis

Impacting approximately 8 million Americans and 125 million people worldwide, psoriasis is a complex autoimmune disease — meaning that the body’s immune system targets and attacks its own cells. Plaque psoriasis, also called psoriasis vulgaris, is the most common form and affects about 80 to 90% of people with psoriasis. In people with light skin, plaque psoriasis is characterized by raised, red or pink patches of skin with silvery-white scale. People with black or brown skin are more likely to have brown or violet-colored patches with silvery-white or gray scale. The scale can be itchy, painful and disfiguring.

Psoriasis can begin at any age, but typically appears around 15 to 25 years of age. The exact cause of psoriasis is not known, but risk factors and triggers may include genetics or a family history of psoriasis, as well as stress, smoking, heavy alcohol consumption and cold or dry weather conditions. People with psoriasis are at an increased risk of developing other health conditions, including psoriatic arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and depression. In addition to physical symptoms, psoriasis can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life and psychological health.
