SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 15, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Kamedis™, a provider of advanced botanical solutions for chronic skin disorders, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued a Notice of Allowance for a patent application involving the company's Kamedis Calm Eczema Therapy Cream. The notice signifies that Kamedis will receive patent protection on the product's proprietary combination of traditional Chinese botanicals, which was developed to treat eczema-related inflammation and infection.

Kamedis Calm Eczema Therapy Cream utilizes an exclusive formulation of Chinese Rhubarb, Great Burnet, Tree of Heaven, Baikal Skullcap, Cnidium Fruit and Licorice extracts in conjunction with conventional active and inactive ingredients. It has been clinically proven to reduce eczema flare-ups by 50% in two weeks, providing significant relief for a condition that affects more than 31 million people in the U.S. including one-third of infants.

Each botanical in the Kamedis formula contains multiple components that modulate different physiological mechanisms simultaneously, helping restore the natural barrier that protects skin against bacteria and irritants. This healthy skin ecosystem helps repair the dryness, itchiness and inflammation associated with eczema. No steroids, parabens, dyes or fragrances are used, minimizing the risk of adverse effects.

A double-blind, randomized clinical trial scheduled for completion in early 2019 is examining the specific role of the product's botanical ingredients in the healing process. The trial is comparing the effectiveness of Kamedis Calm Eczema Therapy Cream, the Kamedis product without the Chinese botanical formulation, and a competitive OTC brand in mitigating eczema symptoms among 108 U.S. children and adults. It marks the first U.S. clinical study designed to determine the efficacy of traditional Chinese botanicals in commercial dermatologic treatments.  

The Kamedis product line also includes botanical-based treatment regimens for acne, dandruff and dry feet. The pending patent on the Kamedis Calm Eczema Therapy will be the first U.S. patent received by the company.
