Acne Vulgaris Understanding

Acne Vulgaris: Overview

Acne vulgaris is an inflammatory disorder of the pilosebaceous unit, which runs a chronic course and it is self-limiting. Acne vulgaris is triggered by Cutibacterium acnes in adolescence, under the influence of normal circulating dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). It is a very common skin disorder which can present with inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesions chiefly on the face but can also occur on the upper arms, trunk, and back. Acne may appear in adolescence, and it persists through the early thirties. Acne is more common in males than in females. Urban populations are more affected than rural populations. About 20% of the affected individuals develop severe acne, which results in scarring. Some races appear to be more affected than others. Acne occurs by hypersensitivity of the sebaceous glands to a normal circulating level of androgens, which are aggravated by P. acnes and inflammation. Acne vulgaris is diagnosed clinically. However, in women of childbearing age, one should ask for a history of hirsutism or dysmenorrhea. If positive, then levels of testosterone, LH, FSH, and DHEA should be ordered. Topical retinoids like retinoic acid, adapalene, and tretinoin are used alone or with other topical antibiotics or benzoyl peroxide. Retinoic acid is the best comedolytic agent, available as 0.025%, 0.05%, 0.1% cream, and gel. Azelaic acid is antimicrobial and comedolytic available 15% or 20% gel. It can also be used in postinflammatory pigmentation of acne. An oral contraceptive containing low dose estrogen 20 mcg along with cyproterone acetate as anti-androgens are used for severe recurrent acne.

Acne vulgaris Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Acne vulgaris report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.


Acne vulgaris Emerging Drugs


IDP126: Bausch Health Americas, Inc. 

A fixed dose combination of adapalene, benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin phosphate gel formulation, designated as IDP 126, is being developed by Bausch. In June 2021, Ortho Dermatologics, a Bausch Health Company, announced results from its second phase III trial investigating the safety and efficacy of IDP-126 (Ortho Dermatologics)) for the treatment of acne vulgaris in patients 9 years and older. This study, a phase III, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, vehicle-controlled trial, met all coprimary endpoints by week 12. The endpoints were the absolute change from baseline in inflammatory lesion count and noninflammatory lesion count, and percentage of patients who achieved treatment success. The treatment success was defined as clear or almost clear skin in the Evaluator’s Global Severity Score (EGSS).


DMT310: Dermata Therapeutics

DMT310 is a lead product candidate, developed from our Spongilla platform technology. The unique product candidate is derived from a natural source of Spongilla lacustris, which contains multiple active components to treat a variety of inflammatory skin diseases with once weekly applications. It is currently under development for the treatment of moderate to severe acne, mild to moderate psoriasis and moderate to severe papulopustular rosacea.  It contains a unique freshwater sponge that is harvested from a select region of the world, under specific environmental conditions to ensure the sponge retains its distinctive anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and mechanical properties.Currently it is being evaluated in Phase II stage of development to treat acne vulgaris.
