Verrica Pharmaceuticals Set to Illuminate TD Cowen Healthcare Conference with Fireside Chat

Verrica Pharmaceuticals Inc

WEST CHESTER, PA — Verrica Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Nasdaq: VRCA), a prominent player in the field of dermatology therapeutics, is set to take center stage at the TD Cowen 44th Annual Healthcare Conference in Boston, Massachusetts. The company announced that it will engage in a fireside chat, providing a unique opportunity for industry insiders to gain insights into its cutting-edge skin disease treatments.

The West Chester, Pennsylvania-based firm has been making waves in the medical community with its innovative therapies. On July 21, 2023, Verrica’s lead product, YCANTH (cantharidin), received approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as the first treatment for molluscum contagiosum in adults and children over two years old. This highly contagious viral skin infection affects approximately 6 million people in the U.S., primarily children, marking a significant breakthrough in dermatology therapeutics.

Beyond YCANTH, Verrica has several promising treatments in the pipeline. VP-102 is being developed to tackle common warts and external genital warts, two of the largest unmet needs in medical dermatology since YCANTH’s approval. Meanwhile, VP-103, another cantharidin-based product candidate, is being designed for plantar wart treatment.

In addition to these exciting developments, Verrica has recently entered a worldwide license agreement with Lytix Biopharma AS. This agreement aims to develop and commercialize VP-315 (formerly LTX-315 and VP-LTX-315) for non-melanoma skin cancers, including basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.

The fireside chat at the TD Cowen conference, slated for 10:30 am ET on Tuesday, March 5, 2024, is sure to provide further illumination on Verrica’s progress and future plans. For those unable to attend in person, a live webcast of the event will be available in the Investors/Presentations & Events section of the Verrica website, with a replay posted shortly after the presentation for 90 days.
