Ziarco has received positive results from a Phase II trial with its leading candidate, which has shown to improve symptoms of atopic dermatitis by 50%, giving it the potential to fill the current need for a safe oral treatment for this inflammatory skin disease.
Founded in 2012, Ziarco has grown fast and even raised €27M back in 2014. It is located in the Discovery Park in Sandwich (yes, that’s really a city in the UK), having Centauri (which was involved in a creation of a spin-off earlier this year) and Pfizer as neighbors.
Ziarco has now received positive Phase II results for its leading candidate, ZPL-389. The study enrolled 98 people with moderate to severe atopic dermatitis, a chronic skin condition characterized by rashes and swelling.
