This study is designed to determine the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression potential and pharmacokinetic (PK) properties of CB-03-01 Cream, 1%, applied every twelve hours for two weeks, in subjects with acne vulgaris ages 12 years or older.
Drug: cortexolone 17α-propionate
||Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||An Open Label Evaluation of the Adrenal Suppression Potential and Pharmacokinetic Properties of Cortexolone 17α-Propionate (CB-03-01) Cream Applied Every Twelve Hours for Two Weeks in Subjects With Acne Vulgaris
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Change in HPA Axis Response to Cosyntropin [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 14 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Measurement of serum cortisol concentrations after stimulation of the adrenal cortex with cosyntropin (Cosyntropin Stimulation Test - CST). HPA axis suppression is defined as a post-stimulation serum cortisol level ≤ 18 μg/dL at Day 14.
- Change in PK profiles of cortexolone 17α-propionate and cortexolone [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 14 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Concentration-time profiles of cortexolone 17α-propionate and its metabolite, cortexolone, in plasma.
