During the last 20 years, the number of topical and systemic drugs for the treatment of acne vulgaris has been enriched. Topical drugs on the one hand have been newly discovered or further developments of already available agents such as in the group of retinoids or galenic formulation have improved efficacy or local tolerance. Topical retinoids are a mainstay in acne treatment since 1962. All-trans retinoic acid was the first and is still in use. Its irritative potential has led to the new… Expand
Treatment Modalities for Acne
TLDR
Due to the increasing resistance of Propionibacterium acnes towards the available antibiotics, there is a need for new treatment methods and the lack of necessary evidence on the efficacy of CAM therapies makes it necessary for researchers to investigate these treatment options further. Expand
Synchronizing Pharmacotherapy in Acne with Review of Clinical Care
TLDR
The experts opined that among topical therapies, the combination therapies are preferred over monotherapy due to associated lower efficacy, poor tolerability, safety issues, adverse effects, and emerging bacterial resistance. Expand
Comparison of topical retinoids in the treatment of acne.
TLDR
The new synthetic retinoids molecules have little resemblance with retinol but nonetheless are included in this family because they have the ability to bind with or activate retinoid receptors. Expand
Update and Future of Systemic Acne Treatment
TLDR
Hormonal treatment represents an alternative regimen in female acne, whereas it is mandatory in resistant, severe pubertal or post-adolescent forms of the disease and, especially, new anti-inflammatory agents, such as lipoxygenase inhibitors. Expand
Side effects of common acne treatments
TLDR
A systematic literature review was performed to identify publications discussing the side effects of the different treatment modalities used for acne vulgaris and the best available options are those that address acne severity while minimizing side effects for the patient. Expand
Effectiveness and tolerance of topical nadifloxacin in the therapy of acne vulgaris (grade I-II): results of a non-interventional trial in 555 patients.
TLDR
A slightly better appraisal was obtained for nadifloxacin in the treatment of acne vulgaris under routine conditions, and in 81.3% of the whole trial population, the investigators rated the effectiveness as “very good/good”. Expand
Retinyl retinoate, a retinoid derivative improves acne vulgaris in double-blind, vehicle-controlled clinical study
TLDR
Results indicate that retinyl retinoate can be used as treatment for mild acne or could potentiate the efficiency of an additive anti-acne agent. Expand
Topical Therapy of Acne Vulgaris Using Ciprofloxacin Solution 1.5% in Comparison With Clindamycin Solution 1.5%
There are many topical therapies that have been used in the treatment of mild to moderate acne vulgaris, yet there is no optimal therapy is defined. The aim of this study is to assess the efficacyExpand
Comparison of efficacy of Azithromycin vs. Clindamycin and Erythromycin in the treatment of mild to moderate acne vulgaris
TLDR
Topical solution azithromycin is a more effective treatment for mild to moderate acne vulgaris comparing to clindamycin and erythromycin, but it has more local side effects. Expand
Maintenance therapy for acne vulgaris: the fine balance between efficacy, cutaneous tolerability, and adherence.
TLDR
Topical agents are the mainstay of maintenance therapy, and patients may be more motivated to use agents that are easily integrated into their lifestyles and that have potential "skin-repairing" properties. Expand

Efficacy and tolerability of combined topical treatment of acne vulgaris with tretinoin and erythromycin in general practice.
TLDR
The results of the present study confirm the high efficacy and tolerability of the fixed combination observed previously in more selected patients, and makes retinoic acid treatment possible even by a general practitioner. Expand
Topical Retinoyl β-Glucuronide Is an Effective Treatment of Mild to Moderate Acne vulgaris in Asian-Indian Patients
TLDR
Topical 0.16% RBG is a rapid, effective and nontoxic treatment for mild to moderate acne in Asian-Indian patients and no side effects were associated with topical RBG treatment. Expand
Isotretinoin treatment of severe acne affects the endogenous concentration of vitamin A in sebaceous glands.
TLDR
It is shown that dehydroretinol accumulates in hyperproliferative, keratinizing skin lesions and so its reduction with isotretinoin therapy may relate to a reduction in cell proliferation or to dedifferentiation, but the precise interrelationships of these observations need further elucidation. Expand
Clinical efficacy and safety of a topical combination of retinaldehyde 0.1% with erythromycin 4% in acne vulgaris
  • Morel, Vienne, +5 authors Dupuy
  • Medicine
  • Clinical and experimental dermatology
  • 1999
TLDR
Retinaldehyde combined with erythromycin appears to be a valuable topical therapy in polymorphic acne, as only a few patients experienced local irritation. Expand
Efficacy and safety of topical azelaic acid (20 percent cream): an overview of results from European clinical trials and experimental reports.
TLDR
Comparisons with clinically proven therapies have shown that 20 percent AzA cream is an effective monotherapy in mild to moderate forms of acne, with an overall efficacy comparable to that of tretinoin, benzoyl peroxide, and topical erythromycin. Expand
Randomized facial tolerability studies comparing gel formulations of retinoids used to treat acne vulgaris.
TLDR
Facial dryness and erythema tended to be greater in these subjects than in those who tolerated the regimen without change, suggesting that the need to discontinue or modify treatment depends more on the individual than on any major inherent differences in the irritant potential of these retinoids. Expand
Liposomal tretinoin for uncomplicated acne vulgaris
TLDR
Liposomal encapsulation of tretinoin allows reduction of the concentration of the active agent without a decline in efficacy for acne vulgaris and local tolerability is increased, which should favor the acceptance of this treatment by the patient. Expand
Tazarotene versus tretinoin or adapalene in the treatment of acne vulgaris.
  • L. Kakita
  • Medicine
  • Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology
  • 2000
TLDR
Results from these studies, and a separate split-face tolerability study, suggest that the tolerability of tazarotene gel is clinically comparable to that of tretinoin 0.025% gel, t retinoin 1% gel microsphere, and adapalene 0.1% gel. Expand
Recent developments in receptor-selective retinoids.
TLDR
The discovery of novel retinoids along with an increased understanding of the biological functions and mechanisms of action of Retinoid receptors are likely to result in improved treatments for existing responsive indications and identification of new retinoid therapeutic targets. Expand
Sebaceous-gland deposition of isotretinoin after topical application: an in vitro study using human facial skin.
TLDR
In conclusion, the in vitro study showed that, following topical administration, substantial amounts of isotretinoin were delivered to the sebaceous glands via the follicular route, whereby the ethanolic gel was as efficient as a liposomal or a mixed micellar gel. Expand
