Where Is This Miraculous Acne Drug Announced In 2008?

It sounded a bit fishy from day one (e.g. they claimed the impressive results with a pill, but only ever suggested that a topical treatment would/might be developed ; why?) The inconsistencies / ambiguities in the information provided by Summit make me think that they were never being very honest about the whole thing. Perhaps it was a basically a publicity stunt?

When there's silence for this long, it generally means there was a problem with the clinical trials (funding or something went wrong). It's definitely a bad sign. I think this is a classic example of too good to be true.

Also, it was supposed to be based on an existing medication, yet there is no known medication (isotretinoin excepted) that has such a dramatic effect on sebum production. Those who thought it was oxybutynin chloride have found that this doesn't do anything for their skin.
