About Novan, Inc.

Novan Therapeutics is a privately-held, clinical stage biotech company focused on advancing nitric oxide therapies. Nitric oxide, one of the most studied molecules in human physiology, has been shown to exhibit antimicrobial activity and to promote vasodilation, regulate inflammation, stimulate tissue repair, and eradicate cancer cells. Novan’s core technologies solve the previous delivery issues with nitric oxide by stably storing the gaseous species on macromolecules that result in a diverse pipeline of “timed-release” nitric oxide-releasing new chemical entities. The company's proprietary platform technology enables drugable nitric oxide in a variety of dosage forms.
