Vancouver, Canada – March 31, 2021 – Sirona Biochem Corp. (TSX-V: SBM) (FSE: ZSB) (US-OTC: SRBCF) (“Sirona”) is pleased to announce that the second clinical trial of the active ingredient, TFC-1067, has been completed with excellent results.
The trial, which concluded on January 22nd, 2021, was managed by Dermscan (a division of Eurofins), a global leader in cosmetic clinical trials. The study’s endpoint was to determine the compound’s ability to selectively reduce areas of hyperpigmentation and dark spots of the skin while not creating a “halo” around the spot, which is a known side effect of other treatments. Multiple parameters were measured including the added effects of the higher concentration of TFC-1067 and a boosted formulation.
Results of the trial included:
• A significant decrease in spot intensity
• A significant decrease in spot size
• A significant decrease in dark spots versus surrounding skin tone
Optimal results were obtained with the higher concentration and improved formulation:
• 100% of participants agreed their complexion was illuminated
• 100% of participants agreed their complexion was brighter
• 100% of participants agreed their skin was more even in tone
• 100% of participants agreed the product blurred imperfections
• 100% of participants agreed the product prevented new dark spots from occurring
• 100% of participants agreed the spot size and mark was reduced
• 100% of participants agreed the intensity of dark spots was reduced
• 100% of participants would purchase the product
Due to contractual obligations, further disclosures will not be made at this time.
The Company also reports an increase in international interest in the project since the commercial launch of TFC-1067.
