Acid Red 94, (Rose Bengal sodium salt), 3,4,5,6-tetrachloro-2-(2,4,5,7-tetraiodo-6-oxido-3-oxoxanthen-9-yl)benzoate :

Provectus Pharmaceuticals, Inc announced preliminary data for the company’s PH-10 Phase 2 clinical trial for Psoriasis as well as for its Phase 2 clinical trial for Atopic Dermatitis. As per the claim by the company, in its Phase 2 trial of PH-10 (0.001% Rose Bengal) for psoriasis, preliminary data shows that 79% of 29 subjects in the clinical trial demonstrated improvement in the Psoriasis Scoring Index (PSI) during four weeks of daily treatment with PH-10. In addition, 83% of the subjects reported no or only mild pruritus (itching) by week four of the trial, with no significant safety issues noted. The 30th and final subject will complete final evaluation in early December.

In its Phase 2 trial of PH-10 for atopic dermatitis (“eczema”), preliminary data from the first 18 subjects indicated that 94% of subjects had improvement in the Eczema Area Severity Index (EASI) during four weeks of treatment. Subjects applied PH-10 daily for up to four weeks to skin areas affected by atopic dermatitis, with response observed weekly throughout this treatment phase and for one month after the end of this period. As in the psoriasis study, the treatments were generally well tolerated with no significant safety issues identified. Hope a sigh of relief for those suffering from psoriasis and atopic dermatitis....
