DMT310 is a complex natural product containing multiple active components and is currently under development for the treatment of moderate to severe acne. It contains a rare variant of freshwater sponge that is harvested from a protected location, under specific environmental conditions to ensure the sponge comprises the optimal product characteristics. After processing, the sponge powder contains precisely sized and shaped silica spicules that upon application may help exfoliate the skin, promote collagen production, open closed comedones and facilitate penetration of the sponge’s naturally occurring chemical compounds. These chemical compounds have been shown, in-vitro, to have both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. We believe the combination of the spicules with the unique chemical compounds within the sponge, may lead to an acne product that only needs to be applied once per week and will have a faster time to treatment than currently available products.
We are currently on schedule to file the DMT310 IND in the first quart of 2018 and begin a Phase 2 study in the second quarter of 2018.
