R&D Pipeline

We are initially focused ion topical AMR infections since (a)  the size of the market is so large and (b) there are virtually no other affordable solutions, either on the market or under development, to treat or prevent such infections at a reasonable cost.  However, over time, in addition to our eczema and acne treatments, we will look to in-license later stage biological dermatological treatments for some underserved indications including for the following problems: additional AMR topical solutions, oncodermatology, actinic keratosis, and/or psoriasis. As we expand we will become one of the leading skin sciences companies in China.
