Novan announced top-line results from the Company’s two, replicate Phase III pivotal clinical trials for SB 204 (nitric oxide) in the treatment of acne vulgaris. In the intent-to-treat analysis, Novan’s topical nitric oxide-releasing product candidate SB204 demonstrated statistical significance compared to vehicle on all three co-primary endpoints in NI-AC302, but demonstrated statistical significance on only one of three co-primary endpoints in NI-AC301.
The three co-primary endpoints included the absolute changes in inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesion counts and proportion of patients achieving success on the Investigator Global Assessment, or IGA, at week 12. Success was defined as an improvement of at least two grades in the IGA score from baseline and an IGA score of 0 or 1, or “clear” or “almost clear.”
The absolute change from baseline in the number of non-inflammatory lesions in NI-AC301 was -15.4 for SB204 and -13.4 for vehicle (p=0.030), and in NI-AC302 was -14.9 for SB204 and -12.3 for vehicle (p=0.001). The absolute change from baseline in the number of inflammatory lesions in NI-AC301 was -12.1 for SB204 and -11.1 for vehicle (p=0.114), and in NI-AC302 was -12.9 for SB204 and -10.6 for vehicle (p<0.001). The proportion of patients with IGA success in NI-AC301 was 13.4% for SB204 and 13.8% for vehicle (p=0.866), and in NI-AC302 was 18.9% for SB204 and 14.3% for vehicle (p=0.032).0>
