MENLO PARK, Calif., April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BioPharmX Corporation (NYSE MKT: BPMX), a specialty pharmaceutical company developing products for the dermatology market, announced the last subject visit in its Phase 2b trial was on March 24, 2017 and the last investigational site close-out visit was April 7, 2017. Based on the timing of the study completion, the company now plans to announce topline data from the trial in the first half of May.
The Phase 2b study was a dose-finding clinical trial to assess the efficacy and safety of BPX-01 for the treatment of acne vulgaris.
