VIDEO: Various treatments for acne in clinical trials



LAS VEGAS– “It’s an exciting time in the treatment of acne,” Linda F. Stein Gold, MD, said in a video interview at Skin Disease Education Foundation’s annual Las Vegas dermatology seminar.

In the interview, Dr. Stein Gold, director of dermatology research at the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, discussed several new developments in the field of acne, including a once-daily oral antibiotic, sarecycline, and topical minocycline drugs in different stages in the research pipeline.

Scarring can occur with any degree of acne severity, but new data suggest that patients struggling with scars may benefit from a fixed combination of adapalene gel 0.3% and benzoyl peroxide gel 2.5%, Dr. Stein Gold noted.

She disclosed relationships with multiple companies including Allergan, Anacor, Celgene, Dermira, Foamix, Galderma, LEO, Medimetriks, Novan, Novartis, Promius, Sol-gel, and Valeant.

SDEF and this news organization are owned by the same parent company.
