CS MEDICA (”CS MEDICA” or the ”Company”) announces today that the final efficacy analysis in their clinical trial of CANNASEN®CBD Psoriasis Gel (NGP-01) met all the trial’s primary and secondary efficacy endpoints. Analysis of the data confirms that CANNASEN®CBD Psoriasis Gel (NGP-01) has efficacy in reducing skin pain, Itch, redness, scaling, and the reduction of psoriasis attack of participants with mild-to-moderate psoriasis. 

The clinical trial data show that the CANNASEN®CBD Psoriasis Gel (NGP-01)  shows no adverse effects and is well tolerated and safe. No negative issues have been reported by the participants and all the vital signs were found normal at all the visits.

Increased Quality of Life for the Participants

This is correspondent to the results of PASI-, NRS-, sPGA-Induration-, sPGA-Erythema-, sPGA-Scaling score and the SGA value, which all scores/values indicating pain or discomfort were significantly reduced.
