About Clinuvel Pharmaceuticals Ltd

Clinuvel Pharmaceuticals Limited (CUV) is a global biopharmaceutical company that develops drugs for the treatment of a range of skin disorders. The company’s flagship product is Scenesse, a drug designed for the treatment of erythropoietic protoporphyria (EPP). EPP is a rare metabolic disorder which causes burns after brief exposure to visible light, especially sunlight. It is estimated that there are 5,000 to 10,000 EPP patients worldwide. 

Clinuvel is also seeking to progress the use of Scenesse for the treatment of vitiligo, a skin disorder characterised by the appearance of white to off-white skin patches due to the loss of melanin production.

The company’s history dates back to 1987 when university researchers devised an idea of synthesising human hormones to protect the skin. Clinuvel shares have been listed on the ASX since 2001 and as a biopharmaceutical company, the Clinuvel share price can often be particularly volatile, bouncing around in response to announcements such as clinical trials and new launches.
