About Edesa

Addressing Unmet Medical Needs


Late-stage drug candidates developed by Edesa Biotech aim to help patients with limited treatment options for dermatological and gastrointestinal diseases

Beyond Steroids

Edesa Biotech, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company founded by experts in the field of dermatology and gastroenterology. We are exploring new ways to treat these diseases, including alternatives to topical steroids, which can have serious side-effects. This innovative approach is made possible by proprietary technology developed to inhibit the inflammatory process at its inception rather than after inflammation has occurred.

Our lead product candidate, EB01, is a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory treatment for chronic allergic contact dermatitis. We also intend to expand our pipeline across multiple indications, which could include acne or other inflammatory disorders. For example, EB02 is a formulation developed to treat hemorrhoids. We have also licensed other technology and are in discussions to expand our portfolio with investigational medicines to treat other serious skin and gastrointestinal conditions.


We are working diligently to deliver on our mission to develop and commercialize innovative drug products that address unmet medical needs for large, underserved patient populations.

We have a number of upcoming clinical milestones and look forward completing the studies needed to advance our product candidates.
