Galderma to present extensive new clinical data across its portfolio of neuromodulators, fillers and biostimulators at the IMCAS World Congress 2022

May 31, 2022
  • Strong clinical data supporting Alluzience® (abobotulinumtoxinA, ABO), the first liquid, ready-to-use neuromodulator as an effective and well-tolerated treatment for glabellar (frown) lines, with a rapid onset and long duration of action of up to six months
  • Data confirming that Dysport® was consistently efficacious for the treatment of frown lines, was well tolerated and had a fast onset of effect across three trials with high patient satisfaction reported up to 6 months after injection in phase III trials 
  • Phase IV data confirming the effectiveness and natural-looking effects with the Restylane® range of hyaluronic acid fillers, with all patients achieving the aim of their treatment, whether it was projection or contouring/volumization with results that were natural-looking with high subject satisfaction
  • Presentation of the latest extension study for Sculptra®, the original poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) which demonstrated it to be well-tolerated and with long-lasting effectiveness until week 96 using reconstituted 8mL dilution.

 

Zug, Switzerland[May 31, 2022] – Galderma will present a range of new clinical data and analyses across its portfolio during nine poster sessions and two symposia at the upcoming International Master Course on Aging Science (IMCAS) World Congress 2022 in Paris from June 3-5, 2022.

 

“At Galderma, we are committed to advancing dermatology for every skin story. The extensive series of oral and poster presentations with new data from across our portfolio demonstrates our drive for innovation across the industry. We will also be hosting two symposia with leading physicians, reinforcing our partnership with the aesthetics community as we present work completed with them to deliver holistic individualized treatments (HITs) for patients and the science and clinical experience behind our latest innovation Alluzience, the first ready-to-use neuromodulator”

Latest efficacy, safety & satisfaction data for neuromodulator portfolio

Alluzience

Two oral presentations and a poster will center on data for Alluzience, the first ready to use liquid (abobotulinumtoxinA), approved in June 2021 in Europe. Pooled data from two phase III studies (NCT02353871 and NCT02493946) demonstrated that Alluzience effectively improved frown line severity, with rapid onset of effect and up to 6 months improvement after a single treatment.1-3 Improvements in the severity of frown lines, satisfaction and psychological well-being were maintained over repeated treatment cycles.1 Additional post-hoc analyzes will be presented that confirm that the median time to return to baseline rating was nearly six months.3

The clinical data that will be presented are listed below:

Delegates at IMCAS can also attend Galderma’s symposium, Alluzience: the first liquid neuromodulator – from theory to practice. During the session, an expert panel will take attendees on a journey through the science of the first ready-to-use neuromodulator and their clinical experience of the breakthrough treatment. The symposium is taking place on Saturday 4, 13:30 to 15:00 CET.

 

 

Dysport (also marketed as Azzalure® in the EU)

Clinical experience with Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) spans over three decades* and it has a well-established safety profile across multiple aesthetic indications including both frown lines and crow’s feet.4–14

Researchers will present three posters demonstrating that Dysport is efficacious and well tolerated, with subjects reporting natural results and high rates of satisfaction. A dose escalation study evaluated subject satisfaction using abobotulinumtoxinA doses up to 125U and demonstrated it was efficacious and well-tolerated across all doses from 50U to 125U with high satisfaction and improvement maintained for up to 9 months.15 Data was analyzed from three studies (NCT03736928, Phase 2; NCT03960957, Phase 3; NCT03687736, Phase 4) in which all subjects were treated with on-label 50 units. Subjects reported median onset of effect after two days in all three trials and high rates of subject satisfaction up to six months after injection in phase III and nine months in phase II trials.16 A post-hoc analysis of clinical trial NCT03687736 also found that while all age groups were satisfied with and experienced psychological benefits from treatment, millennials, known for their high expectations appeared to be particularly happy with two treatments a year of abobotulinumtoxinA.17
