Aclaris Therapeutics

General Information

We are a clinical-stage specialty pharmaceutical company focused on identifying, developing and commercializing innovative and differentiated topical drugs to address significant unmet needs in dermatology. Our lead drug candidate, A-101, is a proprietary high-concentration hydrogen peroxide topical solution that we are developing as a prescription treatment for seborrheic keratosis, or SK, a common non-malignant skin tumor. We have completed three Phase 2 clinical trials of A-101 in over 300 patients with SK. In these trials, following one or two applications of A-101, we observed clinically relevant and statistically significant improvements in clearing SK lesions on the face, trunk and extremities of the body. Clinically relevant means that the observed results suggest a potential meaningful medical benefit, and statistically significant means that there is a low statistical probability, typically less than 5%, that the observed results occurred by chance alone. We plan to commence three Phase 3 clinical trials of A-101 in patients with SK in the second half of 2015 and, if the results of these trials are favorable, to submit a New Drug Application, or NDA, for A-101 for the treatment of SK to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, in the second half of 2016.
