(MENAFN- Investor Brand Network)
Processa Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: PCSA) , a clinical-stage company developing drugs for patients who have unmet medical conditions that require better treatment options to improve a patient's survival and/or quality of life, has released a new website: Necrobiosislipoidicastudy.com. Through the new website, the company is working to increase awareness of ulcerative Necrobiosis Lipoidica (“uNL”), an extremely rare condition, and to inform patients about its ongoing phase 2 study, which is evaluating the use of PCSA's proprietary PCS499 for the treatment of this rare condition. According to the announcement, Necrobiosis Lipoidica (“NL”) is a chronic skin condition affecting anywhere from 22,000 to 55,000 in the United States, and currently, there is no treatment for the condition that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”). About one-third of the time, the skin condition develops into ulcerated lesions that can cause life-threatening infections and necrosis. PCSA's randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study is designed to assess the efficacy and safety of PCS499 for the treatment of ulcerations of patients with NL.“For patients with NL, the tissue below the skin can become necrotic forming open ulcers which can last from months to years with complications such as infections, amputation and cancer,” said Pharm D chief development officer Sian Bigora in the press release.“Currently there is no FDA-approved treatment for uNL or NL, no standard of care, and the treatments that are used are generally inadequate. We are conducting the Phase 2b study to hopefully show that PCS499 can be an option for these patients who currently have little to no options available.”
