"Adults and children are seeking better and safer treatments for their atopic dermatitis because it significantly affects their daily lives, including interrupting sleep, disturbing work or school and causing social anxiety," states Gerald Proehl, President and CEO of Dermata. "We hope that DMT210 can be a safe and effective first-line therapy to help alleviate the daily struggles these patients suffer from and allow them to live a more normal life."
About DMT210: DMT210 is a topical aqueous gel, containing a new chemical entity (NCE), which belongs to a class of compounds called Isoprenylcysteines (IPCs). This NCE is a G-protein modulator, designed as a structural mimic of the amino acid tail found at the C-terminus of G-proteins to reduce inflammation and erythema by blocking multiple cell signaling pathways. Because of DMT210's effect on multiple inflammatory pathways, Dermata plans to develop the product for multiple diseases.
