RXi Pharmaceuticals Corporation (RXII), declared that results from a blinded panel and an Investigator review show that incision sites treated with RXI-109 after scar revision surgery achieved better scores as contrast to control incision sites in the same subjects, three months post scar revision surgery.

Subjects had one portion of the revised scar treated with RXI-109, whereas another part of the scar was revised but left untreated. This 3-month analysis comprised of 16 subjects of which 15 were evaluable and 1 was lost to follow-up.

A blinded assessment of photographs of the revision sites for 15 subjects by Investigators in which the clinicians were asked to indicate for Scars A and B as to which is better or not different’;

A separate assessment of photographs of the revision sites for 15 subjects by a blinded panel, separate from the Investigators, in which the panel members were asked to indicate for Scars A and B as to which is better or not different .
