Verrica Pharmaceuticals Inc. is a Nasdaq-listed dermatology therapeutics company, headquartered in West Chester, Pennsylvania, developing medications for skin diseases requiring medical interventions. In August 2020, Lytix Biopharma announced that it entered into a license agreement with Verrica to develop and commercialize LTX-315 for all malignant and pre-malignant dermatological indications (skin cancer). Verrica intends to focus initially on basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma as the lead indications for development for LTX-315. The American Cancer Society has estimated that about 5.4 million basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) are diagnosed in the US annually. With about 80% of these skin cancers being BCC there is a significant potential for new treatment options.
