Earlier this month, submitted a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for A-101 40% Topical Solution (A-101 40%) for the treatment of seborrheic keratosis (SK) with the Medicines Product Agency (MPA) in Sweden. The MPA will act as the reference member state in this decentralized procedure for review of the MAA for potential marketing approval throughout Europe. If approved, A-101 40% would be available to be commercialized in 16 countries in the European Union.  



A-101 45% Topical Solution


In June, initiated two Phase  2 clinical trials of A-101 45% Topical Solution (A-101 45%) for the treatment of common warts. The Phase 2b clinical trials are designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability and dose frequency of A-101 45% compared with its vehicle (placebo). Approximately 240 patients are expected to be randomized in the two double-blinded trials, which are being conducted at 30 investigational centers within the United States.
