Summer Greetings from Follicum

The first part of 2018 has been a period of intensive development for Follicum. Reaching several milestones, we included the first patients in the new Phase II study for stimulation of hair growth, while simultaneously working to generate new preclinical data to strengthen the diabetes patent where we also included a new peptide class. Patient recruitment in the hair study has exceeded expectations and all patients were included in early June, meaning the project is running according to plan. Patients are treated thrice weekly for three months, which means that we plan to report the results during the last quarter of this year. We have also been busy developing and evaluating three different types of formulations of FOL-005 for application to the skin. Recently, we have announced that we chose a formulation that matches the requirements for stability and transport of FOL-005 to the hair follicle. Additionally, this formulation has the most appealing cosmetic properties.
