Shares of Revance Therapeutics (NASDAQ: RVNC) are ticking higher after the biotech company reported positive interim results from its U.S. phase 2 open-label, dose-escalating clinical study of DaxibotulinumtoxinA Injectable (RT002) to treat moderate-to-severe isolated cervical dystonia in adults, a movement disorder of the neck. Final results are expected in the first half of 2017. “ … I am particularly encouraged that in this trial RT002 exhibited a safety profile at least as good as currently marketed neurotoxins. Furthermore, with a sustained median duration of at least 24 weeks, there is a possibility that patients will require injections only two times a year. Although further studies are needed, RT002 may represent a major advance in neurotoxin technology, which should translate into more meaningful treatment outcomes in patients with cervical dystonia,” said lead trial investigator Dr. Joseph Jankovic, professor of neurology, distinguished chair in Movement Disorders, founder, The Parkinson’s Disease Center and Movement Disorders Clinic (PDCMDC) Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.
