Revance's Long-Acting RT002 Will Have Slow-Moving Impact On Allergan

Phase III data show statistically significant wrinkle-reducing results for up to six months across two trials for Revance's neuromodulator RT002. With a safety study ongoing, the Botox competitor isn't likely to hit the market until 2020, but it's yet another piece of bad news for Allergan.

Facial Aesthetics Market: New Technologies Address Consumer Demand

Consumers of aesthetic procedures are still looking for the perfect option – one that produces a more youthful looking face, but does not require much, if any, downtime. Ideally, these consumers also would like something that offered a long-lasting effect and was delivered with minimal pain and discomfort. At the 2011 AAFPRS conference, held recently in San Francisco, CA, the Emerging Trends and Technologies session focused on new and developing technologies that could meet some of these demands.

Cosmetic Dermatology Thrives in Spite of Economy

While other medical device sectors, such as orthopedics and invasive plastic surgery, experienced a downturn in elective procedures in 2009, cosmetic dermatology procedures--including Botox and facial filler injections--continue on their upward trend. This fact was emphasized by the record attendance at the American Academy of Dermatology summer meeting held in Chicago in August 2010.

Medical Device and In Vitro Diagnostics/Research Deal Statistics Quarterly, Q1 2010

Highlights from the Q1 2010 review of medical device and in vitro diagnostics/research dealmaking: Medical device financings raised $609 million, the lowest since 2009's opening quarter brought in $521 million. More than half of Q1's total dollars came from VC funding with late-stage rounds garning the most. The largest financing was Mindray Medical's $151 million follow-on offering. Seven private companies involved with biomaterials companies were heavy hitters, together accounting for 14% of Q1 2010's financing dollars. There wasn't much M&A activity with just 10 deals pulling in $1.4 billion, the lowest quarter since Q2 2009's $794 million take, however, four transactions did top the $100 million mark. Financing for the in vitro diagnostics/research segment was also disappointing: only $144 million was raised, less than half of what these industries pulled in during Q4 2009 and was way down from 2009's $522 million opening quarter. Conversely, M&A activity was up. Even without counting Merck KGAA's massive $7 billion-plus takeover of research tools company Millipore Corp., the aggregate of the quarter's seven other M&A's ($729 million) still well exceeded that of the closing quarter of 2009, thanks to multiple deals reaching $100 million or more.
