Verrica Pharmaceuticals Announces Resubmission of New Drug Application for VP-102

Verrica Pharmaceuticals Inc

WEST CHESTER, PA — Verrica Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Nasdaq: VRCA) announced that this week it has resubmitted the New Drug Application (NDA) for VP-102 for the treatment of molluscum contagiosum (molluscum) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The resubmission is limited to those sections and elements of the NDA that were identified as deficiencies in the Complete Response Letter (CRL) issued by the FDA in September 2021. The resubmission addresses the successful resolution of inspection deficiencies identified at a contract manufacturing organization (CMO) in the CRL, as well as the recommendations included in the General Advice Letter received from the FDA that relate to VP-102’s user interface.

“We look forward to the FDA’s review of the resubmission of our NDA for VP-102,” said Ted White, Verrica’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Based on published guidance for the industry, we believe our resubmitted NDA qualifies as a Class I resubmission with a 2-month review. If approved, Verrica is well-prepared to launch VP-102 as the first FDA-approved treatment option for molluscum, a highly contagious viral skin disease affecting 6 million people, primarily children, in the U.S. each year.”
