"The statistically significant results Novan recently reported from the Company's Phase 2 study of SB204 are very encouraging, and I look forward to presenting our efficacy and safety data at this prestigious dermatology conference," said Dr. Rico. "The very recent news on attempts at further consolidation in the dermatology industry underscores the need for new drugs. At Novan we're mindful of the shortcomings of currently available therapies and are focused on bringing more effective treatments to market that improve the quality of life for patients."

About SB204
SB204 is Novan's lead drug candidate for the treatment of acne vulgaris. During the phase 2 study, subjects treated with SB204 had improvement in inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesion counts at week 4, and the end of treatment (12 weeks). At four weeks, the 4% dose of SB204 demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in both noninflammatory (white heads and black heads) and inflammatory lesions (larger red bumps and pustules) compared to Vehicle (p ≤ 0.05, intent-to-treat analysis). Statistically significant reductions were also observed in both lesion counts at the 12 week time point.

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the ...

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
U.S. companies are desperately trying to recruit and hire skilled software engineers and developers, but there is simply not enough quality talent to go around. Tiempo Development is a nearshore software development company.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
