Item 7.01. Regulation FD.

 

On December 5, 2022, Dermata Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing the topline results from its Phase 2 trial of once-weekly topical application of DMT310 for the treatment of moderate-to-severe rosacea. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

 

The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K under Item 7.01, including the information contained in Exhibit 99.1, is being furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission, and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by a specific reference in such filing.

 

Item 8.01. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

 

On December 5, 2022, the Company announced topline results from its Phase 2 trial of once-weekly topical application of DMT310 for the treatment of moderate-to-severe rosacea.

 

The data was supportive of DMT310 as a treatment for inflammatory skin diseases, but rosacea study did not meet primary endpoints. DMT310 produced no serious adverse events related to treatment. The Company observed a 44% reduction in inflammatory lesion counts after just 4 treatments with DMT310, which is consistent with the 45% reduction in inflammatory lesion counts the Company saw in its DMT310 Phase 2b acne study. The Company believes that the above average dropout rate of 23% for patients treated with DMT310 seen in the Phase 2 rosacea study, versus 13% seen in the Phase 2b acne study, may explain the reduced treatment effect of DMT310 at Week 12. Some patients did achieve a meaningful change in their rosacea with 36% of DMT310 patients meeting the criteria for a responder on the Investigators Global Assessment scale at Week 12. However, DMT310 was not able to statistically separate from placebo with 23% of placebo patients meeting the criteria as a responder at Week 12. A treatment responder is defined as an IGA grade of ‘clear’ or ‘almost clear’ and at least a 2-grade improvement from baseline.
