Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/16/2014 -- There is considerable excitement around the potential of AndroScience's ASC-J9 in the acne market. ASC-J9 not only represents a novel mechanism of action, but also its entry to the market will be a much-needed addition to a stagnant market. ASC-J9 functions to target the principal hormone receptor associated with acne, the androgen receptor, a cause of acne in both men and women.
In addition to use in female patients with moderate to severe acne, ASC-J9 will allow penetration into the male acne market, something not achieved with currently available hormonal treatments. Furthermore, due to its topical formulation, systemic side effects are likely to be reduced, if not altogether ameliorated. When compared with isotretinoin, the current standard for patients with severe acne, ASC-J9 has a better safety profile and is not teratogenic, which poses a major barrier for isotretinoin. ASC-J9 is expected to become a major product for the treatment of patients with severe acne and is forecast to experience rapid uptake.
A competitive assessment of AndroScience's ASC-J9 and Photocure's Visonac is provided in the Figure. (Please see the attached image)
