new experimental drug that stops sebum production?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone remember reading news awhile back (maybe a year ago, not sure) about a drug that stopped sebum production and had no side effects? The stoppage of sebum production IS the side effect. Apparently it was discovered by accident because it was intended to be used for something else, but they discovered that it stopped sebum production instead. They were in the process of possibly creating a pill form to do experiments with and eventually making it into a cream form. Does anyone remember the name of the drug? I vaguely remember the name just being a mix of alphanumeric characters and it had no pronunciable name.. something like D11ACX (this isn't really it) or some garble. I was just wondering how far the research has gone into that new drug since I can't find it on google or yahoo anywhere, but I think I read the original news article on yahoo a while back.
