Brickell Biotech Announces Initiation of U.S. Phase 3 Program Evaluating Sofpironium Bromide Gel, 15% for the Treatment of Primary Axillary Hyperhidrosis - Seite 3
Hyperhidrosis is a life-altering medical condition where a person sweats more than the body requires to regulate its temperature. More than 15 million people, or 4.8% of the population of the United States, and 12.7% of the population in Japan, are believed to suffer from hyperhidrosis1,2. Primary axillary (underarm) hyperhidrosis is the targeted first indication for sofpironium bromide and is the most common site of occurrence of hyperhidrosis, affecting an estimated 65% of patients with hyperhidrosis in the United States.
