About Revance Therapeutics, Inc.
Revance, a Silicon Valley-based biotechnology company, is committed to the advancement of remarkable science. The company is developing a portfolio of products for aesthetic medicine and underserved therapeutic specialties, including dermatology and neurology. Revance's trajectory to commercial success begins with the company's novel and proprietary TransMTS® carrier-peptide delivery system, which is uniquely designed to target and transport macromolecules to their desired location.
Revance's journey to market starts with the neurotoxin daxibotulinumtoxinA, the company's highly purified botulinum toxin type A. The TransMTS technology is used in the delivery of botulinum toxin through two novel drug product candidates: DaxibotulinumtoxinA Topical Gel (RT001) that permits needle-free application, and DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection (RT002), which is designed to enable targeted administration and long-lasting effect.
Revance is developing RT001 and RT002 for a broad spectrum of aesthetic and therapeutic indications, including facial wrinkles, excessive sweating and muscle movement disorders. The company holds worldwide rights for all indications of RT001, RT002 and the TransMTS technology platform. Beyond botulinum toxin, Revance expects the TransMTS technology can be applied to transdermal, mid-dermal or deep tissue delivery of a variety of other macromolecules.
