“The vision has always been to establish a company that’s diversified, sustainable, and fully integrated, with all functions in-house”
The corporate objective is to establish a globally sustainable group with a constellation of prescriptive and healthcare products derived from melanocortins, originated from associated pharmacological concepts and addressing populations who yet remain unserved.
CLINUVEL strives for vertical integration of all key functions to ensure operational and financial independence, and synergy within the Group of companies.
CLINUVEL has focussed its R&D on melanocortins, associated hormones and peptides, polymers and technological expertise to
be applied for human use.
It is estimated that, globally, two billion individuals are susceptible to accelerated photodamage, leading to an increased risk of various forms of skin cancer.
CLINUVEL set out to provide evidence on the properties
of afamelanotide to photoprotect skin and
assist the repair of DNA damage.
Scientific progress has demonstrated melanocortins as hormonal therapy to exert a positive effect on the central nervous system (CNS).
SCENESSE® is being evaluated as the first systemically administered melanocortin for the pigment loss disorder, generalized vitiligo.
