Amicus Therapeutics’ Phase 3 EB Clinical Trial

Below you will find updated information about the ESSENCE Study, a Phase 3 clinical trial of SD-101, an investigational topical cream being developed by Amicus, together with Scioderm, to treat skin blistering and lesions associated with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB).

What is the ESSENCE Phase 3 Study?

The ESSENCE Study is currently underway in the U.S. and Europe, with sites planned in additional geographies.

The double-blind, placebo-controlled trial will evaluate the safety and efficacy of SD-101 in patients with various subtypes of EB (Simplex, Recessive Dystrophic and Junctional [non-Herlitz]).

Participants will be randomized 1:1 to two treatment groups receiving either SD-101 6% or placebo applied over their entire body once daily for three months.

The primary efficacy endpoint will be complete closure of a target wound. Improvement in itching, pain, and full-body wound and lesion coverage will also be assessed. Investigators will also assess safety.

It is expected that everyone completing the three-month study will be offered the option to receive active SD-101 in an open-label extension trial.
