Candesant- Candesant Biomedical is developing a novel approach to energy production – Targeted Alkali Thermolysis (TAT) – for the non-invasive treatment for excessive sweating.  Candesant’s lead product is a topical patch to treat excessive sweating with a quick, in-office procedure. The technology is based on the principle that alkali metals, in contact with water, generate thermal energy.  Two successful clinical studies demonstrated efficacy in reducing sweat and validated that the energy is reproducibly generated, highly targeted and inactivates the most active sweat glands.  In these studies, TAT demonstrated significant sweat reduction benefits lasting up to 2 months after a single, no down-time treatment.
