ZUG, Switzerland–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Galderma has announced that it will present its latest scientific findings at the 31stSt Congress of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) from September 7th to 10th, 2022 in Milan. This will include on-site clinical data presentations, a series of symposiums and booth activities, all focused on serving patients by offering options across the therapeutic dermatology, dermo-cosmetics and injectable aesthetics categories. As a leader in pure dermatology, Galderma’s significant presence at EADV reinforces its commitment to providing a truly innovative, science-based portfolio of world-class, cutting-edge brands and services.
The latest scientific findings presented by Galderma at EADV reflect the company’s significant investments in research and development with large studies across multiple indications for serious conditions such as prurigo nodularis, atopic dermatitis, acne, rosacea, non-melanoma skin cancer and onychomycosis. For over 40 years, Galderma has focused exclusively on dermatology and has proven to be one of the few players able to offer not only first-class product solutions, but also first-class solutions with new innovative modes of action. Today, Galderma is a leading scientific voice in these disease areas and remains committed to advancing advancements for patients with these and other serious skin conditions.
One of the company’s most anticipated news releases this year will focus on IL-31, a neuroimmune cytokine that has been shown to be a key mediator in prurigo nodularis and atopic dermatitis. The cytokine acts as a bridge between the immune and nervous systems and plays a crucial role in triggering and promoting the pathophysiological aspects including itching and inflammation1.2. Two symposia and eight scientific posters will examine the burden of disease, the role of IL-31 in these inflammatory skin diseases, and treatments under development.
Another focus of Galderma will be on sensitive skin, which affects a large segment of the population, with over 70% of women reporting suffering from its effects3. With a strong consumer skin range for sensitive skin including Cetaphil and the recent acquisition of Alastin Skincare, Galderma understands the need for specially designed treatments and personalized skincare regimens. At this year’s EADV, Galderma will join key opinion leaders to challenge the existing paradigms on sensitive skin and challenge the community on whether it should be considered a skin condition in its own right.
Other skin conditions that drive patients to their dermatologists include acne, rosacea, actinic keratosis and non-melanoma skin cancer, conditions affecting a significant cross-section of society. Galderma researches these conditions and has been bringing innovative products to patients and consumers for decades. At EADV, the company will present new data and host scientific meetings and discussions to explore novel patient-centric, holistic approaches in each of these areas to help identify the best personalized treatment regimens for each patient.
Galderma’s significant presence at EADV this year reflects its expertise in these common and often serious skin conditions and is a testament to its commitment to advancing dermatology for every skin story.
