Menlo Therapeutics has officially changed its name to VYNE Therapeutics.

Menlo Therapeutics is now VYNE Therapeutics Inc., according to a company announcement September 2, 2020.

“Our new corporate branding, VYNE Therapeutics, reflects an evolution of our business which combines the strengths and traditions of our legacy companies ─ Menlo Therapeutics and Foamix Pharmaceuticals ─ with our ambition to build a sustainable, fully integrated pharmaceutical company in dermatology and beyond,” says David Domzalski, president and CEO.

The company’s current pipeline contains a variety of products equipped with their Molecule Stabilizing Technology (MST), including the world’s first topical minocycline foam 4% (AMZEEQ), which was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in October 2019 for treatment of inflammatory lesions of non-nodular moderate-to-severe acne vulgaris in adult and pediatric patients ages 9 years and older.

Also approved by the FDA in May 2020, a topical minocycline foam 1.5% (ZILXI) for treatment of rosacea, which became the first minocycline product approved for this indication.

“Having achieved FDA approval for our two commercial products AMZEEQ and ZILXI ─ in a period of less than eight months ─ is a testament to the value of our proprietary technology and is aligned to the symbolic meaning behind our new name ─ strength, growth, endurance, and resilience,” says Domzalski. “We are focused on growing the business, building our franchise in a way that will maximize our operational capabilities, and developing a pipeline of innovative products to address unmet needs for patients.”
