An update was given yesterday by Ted White, the CEO of our partner Verrica Pharmaceuticals, on how they are advancing our lead compound LTX-315 through their Phase II trial. Satisfied and encouraged by the efficacy they observed in part 1 of the study in basal cell carcinoma patients, they now plan to enroll the first patient in part 2 in April. In Part 2 Verrica will explore dosing frequency and treatment regimens and be looking for clinical necrosis and abscopal effects.
