Revance Completes Enrollment in Phase 3 Pivotal Trials of RT002 Injectable for the Treatment of Glabellar (Frown) Lines

Share:





Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:RVNC), a biotechnology company
developing botulinum toxin products for use in aesthetic and therapeutic
indications, today announced the completion of patient enrollment in two
pivotal trials of the company's SAKURA Phase 3 program for its
investigational drug candidate DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection (RT002)
for the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar lines in adults.
Glabellar line treatment is the most popular aesthetic procedure for
botulinum toxin and is estimated to have represented nearly $1 billion
of the global market in 2015. Revance's Phase 3 program is comprised of
two pivotal trials evaluating the efficacy, safety and duration of
RT002, as well as a long-term safety trial, the latter of which
continues to enroll patients. The company expects to report topline
results from both pivotal Phase 3 trials in the fourth quarter of 2017.

"Our SAKURA program is designed to confirm RT002's potential to deliver
high response rates and long lasting treatment of frown lines," said Dan
Browne, co-founder, President, and Chief Executive Officer at Revance.
"We believe RT002 will help reduce the number of annual treatments that
could potentially lead to greater patient satisfaction. Data presented
last year from our BELMONT Phase 2 study demonstrated a six-month median
duration of effect. This compares favorably to duration of three to four
months for the treatment of glabellar lines noted in the labels of
commercially available neurotoxins. This pivotal Phase 3 program is
expected to build on the BELMONT results and establish RT002 as the
first long-lasting neuromodulator."

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
United States and Canada. In both trials, subjects have been randomized
in a 2:1 ratio to either the RT002 or placebo treatment groups,
respectively. Post-treatment, subjects will be followed for at least 24
weeks and up to 36 weeks.

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 Canada.
Depending on the number of treatments and duration of follow-up, a
subject may be on trial for a maximum of 84 weeks.

subject eligibility criteria, is available at www.clinicaltrials.gov.
