Quoin Pharmaceuticals Ltd. announced it has filed U.S. and International Patent applications for a novel combination product as a potential treatment of Netherton Syndrome. This new product combines a broad spectrum serine protease inhibitor with an anti-inflammatory agent in a proprietary topical formulation. Quoin anticipates that patents arising from these applications will extend to at least 2044.

Quoin is currently enrolling patients in two clinical trials being conducted under its open Investigational New Drug (IND) application, evaluating its QRX003 topical lotion as a potential treatment of Nether ton Syndrome. To date, Quoin remains the only company actively recruiting subjects into NS clinical trials that are being conducted under an open IND.
