ViaDerma, Inc. Lead Product TetraStem Shows Promise in Treating Acne

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ViaDerma, Inc. (OTCQB:VDRM), a specialty pharmaceutical company devoted to bringing new products to market, has recently released a revolutionary new wound care drug called TetraStem. TetraStem is a liquid tetracycline-based antibiotic that uses a patent-pending innovative transdermal delivery method to apply almost any active ingredient to a topical drug. It has recently shown promising results for acne sufferers with the minimal side effects that are usually associated with other medications.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is a problem that affects approximately 40 to 50 million Americans. While both genders are affected by acne, higher levels of testosterone in men often lead to a higher prevalence of acne sufferers during adolescence and young adulthood. An increase in hormones called androgens, which are in both genders, also correspond with increased acne.

TetraStem differentiates itself from other Tetracycline-based acne products by implementing a unique transdermal delivery method that the Company believes will increase the efficacy of the drug. TetraStem is designed to kill bacteria and heal the skin. ViaDerma believes that patients who apply a drop on the infected parts three times a day will see results within 24-48 hours and resolution within two weeks. TetraStem's active ingredient may help regenerate skin so there is minimal scarring which leaves the patient with very little evidence of previous acne problems.

"It has been tested in Florida, Oklahoma and California," said ViaDerma, Inc. CEO Dr. Christopher Otiko. "The subjects have been pleased with the results. They had tried other medication without success and were impressed with TetraStem's results."
