Timber Pharmaceuticals Receives FDA Waiver for Lead Candidate; Shares Soar Nearly 50%


Timber Pharmaceuticals (NYSE American: TMBR) has received a dermal carcinogenicity (CARC) waiver from the FDA for its lead candidate, TMB-001 (topical isotretinoin) allowing the company to forgo a two-year dermal rodent carcinogenicity study.

Timber’s shares soared nearly 50% following the announcement.


Timber said the CARC waiver will allow the company to avoid a costly and lengthy non-clinical study.

The FDA’s decision is based on results of a 39-week repeat dose dermal toxicity study that demonstrated no evidence of skin or organ carcinogenicity from chronic applications of TMB-001 in rodents.

Timber also announced it had reached 70% enrollment in its pivotal Phase 3 ASCEND study. The study is investigating TMB-001 for the treatment of moderate to severe subtypes of congenital ichthyosis that affect about 80,000 people in the United States.

TMB-001 has received Breakthrough Therapy designation, Orphan Drug designation and Fast Track Status from the FDA, and Orphan Drug designation from the EMA.
