Business Update

In July 2023, the Company initiated TONE, a post-market study treating patients with stable vitiligo. The purpose of TONE is to evaluate repigmentation and to understand the impact of repigmentation on improving quality of life for patients with this disease. Key study endpoints include patient and clinician satisfaction of treatment, burden of disease, and patient mental health status. The Company believes that developing these health-related quality-of-life indicators will help create a basis to understand the impact of vitiligo on the mental health of patients and the associated healthcare costs of treatment.

The Company completed enrollment of TONE with 109 patients at investigational sites across the United States earlier than anticipated. Patients will be followed for a 12-month period, with the primary follow-up period being 6-months after treatment.
