Our Solution – Beneficial inflammatory modulation and reduction of itch

The Product – Topical anti-itch formulation

TIRmed Pharma’s product candidate is formulated in a cream aiming for a self-applied and easy to use at-home anti-itch treatment. The product is intended for mild to moderate symptoms before the need of biologicals. Topical delivery to the skin limits systemic adverse events. TIRmed’s product is a next generation topical treatment without steroids.
