Vancouver, Canada – April 25, 2023 – Sirona Biochem Corp. (TSX-V: SBM) (FSE: ZSB) (OTC: SRBCF) (“Sirona”) is pleased to announce that the clinical trial results, for novel anti-aging compound TFC-1326, has exceeded even high expectations on key criteria.
The trial, which was completed by a leading contract research organization in Paris, France, was independently financed by Sirona to be able to share the results with interested partners without restrictions. Full results will also be published in a scientific journal.
The clinical trial was designed to assess the compound’s efficacy to reverse aging facial skin, including restoring lost volume and reducing fine wrinkles. The formulation is a cream base with TFC-1326 at a concentration of 1% and no other active ingredient.
The following key scientific results were shown during the trial:
- 37% increase in skin density.
- 54% decrease in H202 (exceptional antioxidant). Oxidation is a major cause of skin aging.
- 54% decrease in IL-8 (exceptional anti-inflammatory). Inflammation is also a major cause of skin aging.
- 25% increase in skin radiance.
- 14% improvement in facial skin laxity, which is a remodeling effect on the oval of the face (see photos below and on our website).
The following results were collected from participants:
- 80% of participants felt their skin was firmer.
- 90% of participants felt an improvement in the quality of the skin.
- 100% of participants reported the product was well tolerated, even on sensitive skin.
- 95% of participants reported being happy with the product.
- 75% of participants reported a visible reduction in wrinkles.
- 90% reported improved skin hydration.
Both measured and subjective parameters showed continued improvement through the 12-week study, indicating further improvement likely with longer use.
The results support the strong preclinical data including clinical safety data. A basic formulation was utilized in the clinical trial to confirm all benefits were specifically attributable to TFC-1326 and not other active ingredients.
“We have achieved results that exceed those seen from currently marketed anti-aging therapies. Our photographic results show a remodeling effect of the jowl and cheek area which is truly unprecedented in topical application. In the world of aesthetics positive visual results delivered safely, without adversity is an ultimate gaol and has been achieved during this trial. We believe even more outstanding results are possible through planned modifications in our formulation and knowledge we have gained from this study”, reports Dr. Geraldine Deliencourt-Godefroy, Chief Scientific Officer.
Sirona is currently engaging industry experts to determine the best path forward to commercialize TFC-1326. Further updates will be provided once the strategy is finalized.
The concept for the anti-aging library related to TFC-1326 was initiated by Chief Scientific officer Dr. Géraldine Deliencourt-Godefroy. The innovative chemistry is based on the naturally occurring antifreeze glycoproteins found in polar fish. TFC-1326 is now a clinically proven breakthrough anti-aging compound. Sirona has achieved the goal to develop a non-invasive anti-aging skin care compound which is safe, easy to use and truly effective. TFC-1326 could be a stand-alone product for anti-aging or an adjunctive option to Botox® and dermal filler treatments depending on consumer goals.
