Quite possibly, words are beginning to spread of a potential new connection between Novan and Ligand Pharmaceuticals (1b+ cap) previously the company invested 12m into Novan SB206 and is set to receive 7-10% in royalties as seen on their official site.

Earlier this year SB206 trial failed to beat placebo depressing NOVN shares, the company currently started another trial to act as a confirmatory study for the drug to support future NDA application.
