About Novan, Inc.
Novan Therapeutics is a privately-held, clinical stage biotech company
focused on advancing nitric oxide therapies. Nitric oxide, one of the
most studied molecules in human physiology, has been shown to exhibit
antimicrobial activity and to promote vasodilation, regulate
inflammation, stimulate tissue repair, and eradicate cancer cells.
Novan's core technologies solve the previous delivery issues with nitric
oxide by stably storing the gaseous species on macromolecules that
result in a diverse pipeline of "timed-release" nitric oxide-releasing
new chemical entities. The company's proprietary platform technology
enables drugable nitric oxide in a variety of dosage forms.
