Therapeutic Approach

Reducing Inflammation

Vamorolone is a first-in-class drug that borrows some activities of corticosteroids (anti-inflammatory activity via NFkB repression), while adding new activities not seen with corticosteroids (eplerenone-like activity; membrane stabilization activity). Vamorolone hopes to retain the beneficial anti-inflammatory and muscle strengthening aspects of corticosteroids, while decreasing some of the undesirable side effects (bone fragility, stunted growth, insulin resistance, mood changes, delay of puberty and others). Vamorolone is given as an oral liquid flavored formulation at home daily.


A Phase 2a clinical trial is completed and data is currently under interpretation. A Phase 2a extension clinical trial of the same patients is fully enrolled and ongoing. A Long Term Extension study is open for the same patients, and is ongoing. Results from these phase 2a studies have been published.

A Phase 2b/3 clinical trial is currently recruiting.

On March 23, 2020, ReveraGen shared an update with the community regarding the Vamorolone trials and COVID-19.
