We have successfully completed Phase 2 clinical trials for our lead product candidate, LIPO-202, and are currently engaged in planning Phase 3 clinical trials in accordance with FDA guidance. If approved, LIPO-202 has the potential to be a best-in-class, highly differentiated, non-surgical, injectable formulation for localized subcutaneous fat reduction and body contouring for healthy, non-obese patients.
