- High-dose Jeuveau, with a dosage double that of the existing 20 units, has succeeded in Phase 2 clinical trials as ‘Extra Strength’
- Demonstrating a proven long-term efficacy of 6 months—double the treatment cycle of competing products—Jeuveau enhances global product competitiveness
SEOUL, South Korea, Nov. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Daewoong Pharmaceutical is proud to announce the successful completion of a Phase 2 clinical trial for its botulinum toxin type-A product, NABOTA, commercially known as Jeuveau in the United States. This pivotal trial achieved its primary endpoint, demonstrating that a high dose of 40 units of Jeuveau can effectively treat glabellar lines with long-term efficacy lasting up to 26 weeks, or 6 months.
The Phase 2 study, focusing on “Extra Strength” treatment for glabellar lines, was a multicenter, double-blind, randomized trial conducted across five study sites in the United States. It involved 150 participants with moderate to severe glabellar lines, as assessed by the subject and medical professionals using the Glabellar Line Scale (GLS).
These findings mark a significant achievement for Daewoong Pharmaceutical and its partner, Evolus. The results were presented at the prestigious American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) conference in Chicago on October 3rd.
Sung-Soo Park, Vice President of Daewoong Pharmaceutical, commented “The conclusive results from the high-dose administration in the Phase 2 clinical trials by our partner Evolus are noteworthy. We are poised to enter and compete in major botulinum toxin markets, including the United States, Europe, Canada, and Australia, leveraging our global competitiveness.” He further emphasized the commitment of both companies to “continuously validate the efficacy and safety of NABOTA through ongoing clinical trials and to increase our market share worldwide.”
NABOTA, which contains Botulinumtoxin Type A and is the first FDA-approved botulinum toxin from Asia, has been experiencing consistent growth. Through its partnership with Evolus, it has expanded its global reach. In Europe, where it is known as NUCEIVA, the product has been successfully launched in the UK, Germany, Austria, and Italy, reinforcing its strong market presence in both North America and Europe.
