Novan has chosen to focus on dermatology because nitric oxide’s multiple mechanisms of action converge in the largest organ of the body, the skin. All of the major cell types that comprise the three layers of the skin are capable of producing nitric oxide at different rates, and these cells play an important part in organizing the skin’s unique ability to repair itself and maintain barrier function. Our ability to tune its release profile allows us to trigger nitric oxide’s wide range of pharmacological effects when host systems fail or are overwhelmed by invading microorganisms.
