Data from this study should be released by the end of this year.

DURECT Corp. (DRRX:NASDAQ) announced in a news release it completed enrollment for its Phase 2a clinical trial of topical DUR-928 in patients with mild to moderate plaque psoriasis. The company expects to announce topline data from this study by year-end 2019.

Also, the biopharmaceutical firm enrolled half, or 30, of the required patients for its ongoing Phase 1b, oral DUR-928 trial in patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, or NASH. This study should be completed in H1/20, after which topline results will be announced.

""We are pleased that on the heels of completing the alcoholic hepatitis trial on schedule and announcing positive results, we have also achieved important enrollment milestones in our ongoing psoriasis and NASH trials. With these two trials progressing as planned, we are approaching important data readouts for DUR-928 in these difficult to treat conditions," President and CEO James E. Brown said in the release.
