DFD-29 on it’s way, now has an NDA

Journey Medical’s modified released 40mg minocycline (still code named DFD-29) has published positive Phase 3 Clinical Trial data and is now sitting waiting on a New Drug Application. The company press release touts the combination treatment for both the inflammatory lesions and the redness of rosacea. By comparison, Oracea, the competing product that DFD-29 claims to out-perform, is not indicated for the redness off rosacea, only for the treatment of the papules and pustules of rosacea.

The press release contains the somewhat hopeful claim that “DFD-29 could fundamentally improve the treatment paradigm for patients suffering from both inflammatory lesions and erythema (redness) from rosacea”.

There is a still long way to go before rosacea sufferers get to see whether this new form of a tetracycline will offer a significant benefit over Oracea. It is encouraging, though, that this in-development product has made it to NDA stage.
