Dermata Therapeutics (NASDAQ:DRMA) stock is on the rise Thursday following an update concerning its moderate-to-severe acne treatment.

The big news here is the FDA signed off on the company’s ability to hold a Phase 3 clinical trial of DMT310. That comes after the company submitted details of its chemistry, manufacturing, and controls procedures, which meet Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards.

To go along with this, Dermata Therapeutics also sent in its end-of-Phase 2 meeting package to the FDA. This covers the clinical requirements needed for its Phase 3 clinical trial. It expects feedback from the regulators by the end of June 2023.

These approvals from the FDA put the company one step closer to commercialization. If all goes well, it hopes to start a Phase 3 clinical trial in the second half of 2023. The company is hopeful for positive results that will allow it to sell the acne drug.
