NEW YORK, Jan. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Hoth Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOTH) ("HOTH" or the "Company"), a biopharmaceutical company, today announced extending a research collaboration agreement with Weill Cornell Medicine to continue investigating the therapeutic mechanism of action and safety of HT-003, a novel retinoic acid metabolism blocking agent (RAMBA), for the treatment of acne. The 1-year agreement extension is based on positive results generated from the prior research agreement that support a therapeutic effect of HT-003 in key signaling pathways contributing to the development of acne.
The extended research collaboration will expand the scope of investigation to further understand the therapeutic mechanism of HT-003 for treatment of acne and other inflammatory skin diseases. The research will also explore safety of HT-003 in murine models.
