CLINUVEL’s lead compound, SCENESSE® (afamelanotide 16mg), a first-in-class drug targeting erythropoietic protoporphyria (EPP), has completed Phase II and III trials in the US and Europe.

In December 2014 the European Commission granted SCENESSE® marketing authorisation under exceptional circumstances for the prevention of phototoxicity in adult patients with EPP.

In October 2019, the US FDA granted CLINUVEL marketing approval for SCENESSE® (afamelanotide 16mg) to increase pain free light exposure in adult patients with a history of phototoxic reactions from EPP.

Further trials of SCENESSE® are underway in the pigmentary disorder vitiligo.
