Quinnova Pharmaceuticals Announces the Launch of ECOZA™ (econazole nitrate) topical foam, 1%

CHATHAM, N.J. and JAMISON, Pa., March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Quinnova Pharmaceuticals LLC, an affiliate of Exeltis™, today announced the launch of its recently U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved ECOZA™ (econazole nitrate) topical foam, 1%.  ECOZA™ FOAM is indicated for the treatment of interdigital tinea pedis caused by Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, and Epidermophyton floccosum in patients 12 years of age and older.

ECOZA™ FOAM, a novel alternative for the treatment of interdigital tinea pedis (athletes foot between the toes), combines the proven antifungal efficacy of econazole nitrate with the skin-restoring properties of Proderm Technology®.  Proven to kill fungi that cause interdigital tinea pedis when applied once-daily for 4 weeks, its unique, alcohol-free foam delivery helps protect and restore skin, penetrating quickly and drying rapidly without the greasy residue that is common among other creams and gels.

"We are really excited about the launch of ECOZA™ FOAM, the first and only FDA approved prescription econazole nitrate foam in the U.S., into the almost $600M global athletes foot market. Econazole nitrate is a safe and effective topical antifungal, having been one of the most widely prescribed for the past two decades. This dosage form, using our patented Proderm Technology® that consists of a unique chemical structure that facilitates penetration of drug ingredients into the dermal layer, addresses an unmet consumer need because it is easy to apply, quickly disperses, and does not leave a residue," said Jeffrey S. Day, Executive Vice President, Dermatology of Quinnova Pharmaceuticals.  "We are pleased that ECOZA™ FOAM is now available to offer doctors and their patients a safe and effective alternative to traditional creams and gels."

Information About ECOZA™ (econazole nitrate) topical foam, 1%. 

ECOZA™ FOAM is a prescription medicine used on the skin (topical) to treat athlete's foot that is between the toes (interdigital tinea pedis) in people 12 years of age and older. ECOZA™ FOAM should be applied to cover affected areas once daily for 4 weeks. ECOZA™ FOAM is for topical use only and is not for oral, ophthalmic, or intravaginal use.

In two double-blind, parallel-group, vehicle-controlled, multicenter clinical trials, 495 subjects aged ≥12 years with a clinical diagnosis of interdigital tinea pedis and fungal culture positive for a dermatophyte at baseline received ECOZA™ FOAM (n=246) or foam vehicle (n=249).  Subjects applied ECOZA™ FOAM or foam vehicle once-daily for 4 weeks. The primary endpoint was proportion of subjects who achieved a complete cure (negative KOH, negative fungal culture, no evidence of clinical disease as indicated by complete resolution of all signs and symptoms) at 2 weeks post-treatment (Day 43).  Secondary endpoints included mycologic cure (negative KOH and negative culture) and effective treatment (mycologic cure + no or mild erythema and/or scaling and all other signs and symptoms absent).

The results from the clinical studies demonstrated that ECOZA™ FOAM exhibited superiority over foam vehicle for the primary and secondary endpoints and demonstrated potent antifungal activity against all of the pathogens evaluated with a high mycologic cure rate. The complete cure rate at Day 43 (2 weeks post-treatment) was higher in the ECOZA™ FOAM group (24.3%) than in the foam vehicle group (3.6%). In addition, higher rates of mycologic cure (67.6% vs 16.9%) and effective treatment (48.6% vs 10.8%) were observed with econazole nitrate foam 1% vs the foam vehicle. ECOZA™ FOAM was safe and well tolerated with a safety profile comparable with the foam vehicle. During clinical trials with ECOZA™ FOAM the most common adverse reactions were application site reactions, which occurred in less than 1% of subjects in both the ECOZA™ FOAM and vehicle arms.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
