An oral investigational drug has been developed with the potential to increase sunlight duration and tolerance in
individuals with EPP. This phase II clinical trial is needed to understand if the investigational drug works and to
ensure that it is safe. The study duration is 24 weeks including follow-up. You must be age 18-70 to participate

The New Drug Application for Scenesse has been submitted to the FDA.
Now is the time to work hard as patient advocates.
The APF is launching a new campaign to request Priority Review
Now is the time to send your letter requesting priority review for Scenesse. We need to move Scenesse, a long-awaited treatment for EPP, through the regulatory process as quickly as possible. Now that a complete new drug application has been submitted to the FDA - they have the option of granting priority review which moves the process faster. Please share with the FDA...
* That there is no treatment for EPP
* That there is an unmet medical need for a treatment for EPP
* That living with EPP is a tremendous burden
* How living with EPP affects your quality of life
It is important that you send your signed letter to the APF immediately.
