MedPharm has previously supported Novan by testing the company’s unique formulations using its proprietary in vitro models to optimise Novan’s formulations and de-risk product development.

The newly expanded agreement between the companies will broaden the relationship to include development of formulations and selection of product candidates, cost-effective product target screening and the development of in vitro models focused on Novan’s nitric oxide product technology.

“MedPharm is delighted to be able to support Novan in advancing and broadening its product pipeline,” commented Eugene Ciolfi, MedPharm’s President & CEO. “Our new agreement allows us to react quickly to changes in requirements and makes full use of MedPharm’s comprehensive services for de-risking Novan’s product development”.
