Hypertrophic Scar Treatment
OLX101A is designed to suppress the formation of hypertrophic scars / keloids caused by damage to the dermis and excessive production of collagen fibers. Unlike conventional surgical treatments which are not involved in scar formation mechanisms, OLX101 directly inhibits collagen production by targeting CTGF mRNA.
Target RNA: CTGF
Administration Route: Intradermal Injection
CTGF is a major factor in fibrotic diseases which promotes the production of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins, including collagen.
Often, abnormal response (production of extra collagen fibers due to overexpression of CTGF) during the wound healing process leads to the formation of hypertrophic scars/keloids.
