SAKURA Program Topline Results on Track to Report Fourth Quarter 2017
"Our SAKURA program is designed to confirm RT002's potential to deliver
high response rates and long lasting treatment of frown lines," said
SAKURA Phase 3 Clinical Program
The company's Phase 3 clinical program includes two randomized,
double-blind, placebo-controlled pivotal trials to evaluate the safety
and efficacy of a single administration of RT002 for the treatment of
moderate to severe glabellar lines in adults. The pivotal trials have
enrolled a total of approximately 600 subjects at multiple sites in
The primary efficacy endpoint of the pivotal trials will be a composite of the proportion of subjects who achieve a score of 0 or 1 (none or mild) and a two-point improvement from baseline in glabellar line severity on the Investigator Global Assessment-Facial Wrinkle Severity (IGA-FWS) and Patient Facial Wrinkle Severity (PFWS) scales, at maximum contraction (frown), at Week 4. Duration of the reduction of severity of the glabellar lines will be assessed as a secondary efficacy endpoint in the Phase 3 pivotal trials.
In addition to the two pivotal trials, the Phase 3 program includes a
long-term, open-label safety trial, which is designed to evaluate the
long-term safety of RT002 for the treatment of moderate to severe
glabellar lines in adults following both single and repeat treatment
administration. The long-term safety trial is expected to enroll
approximately 1,500 subjects at multiple sites in the US and
