New Delhi, June 16, 2017: Vyome Biosciences, a clinical-stage specialty pharmaceutical company developing novel medicines for treating skin diseases caused by resistant microbes, today announced that Venkateswarlu Nelabhotla (N. Venkat), co-founder and chief executive officer of Vyome, will present at the 2017 Biotechnology Innovation Organization’s (BIO) International Convention in San Diego, Calif. N. Venkat presents at 2 p.m. PT on Thursday, June 22.
N. Venkat will present on Vyome’s innovative platforms and novel, unique pipeline of drug candidates designed to address antibiotic resistant and opportunistic skin pathogens. The company’s lead drug candidate, VB 1953, is a topical treatment option being studied in phase 2 trials for the treatment of antibiotic resistant acne.
VB 1953, the company’s lead drug candidate, is a potent next-generation antibiotic and anti-inflammatory compound combined with a patented micro-technology gel system designed to maximize effect at the site of infection and minimize systemic exposure. In a U.S.-based phase 1 clinical trial in patients with moderate to severe acne, VB 1953 met its primary endpoint relative to pharmacokinetics, achieving plasma concentration less than 1 ng/ml, was generally well tolerated and showed anti-acne and anti-inflammatory properties. Vyome has completed enrollment in its Proof of Concept clinical study and plans to initiate a phase 2B trial to further evaluate VB 1953 for the treatment of moderate to severe acne by the end of 2017.
