  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of CT Gel in subjects with acne vulgaris. The hypothesis is that CT Gel is superior to Clindamycin Gel, Tretinoin Gel and Vehicle Gel for the treatment of acne vulgaris.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Absolute Change From Baseline in Lesion Counts (Total, Inflammatory, and Non-inflammatory) at Week 12 (End of Study) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Acne lesion counts (inflammatory [papules, pustules, nodules], non-inflammatory [open and closed comedones], and total) were performed on the face of participants. Change from baseline is defined as Week 12 values minus Baseline values. The total lesion count is the sum of the inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesion counts.

  • The Percentage of Participants Who Had a Minimum 2-grade Improvement in the Investigator's Static Global Assessment (ISGA) Score From Baseline to Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The ISGA is a static ("snap-shot") evaluation of acne severity performed by an investigator/assessor at every visit. The ISGA score is measured on a 6-point ordinal scale, where 0=Clear and 5=Very Severe. Change is calculated as the Week 12 value minus the Baseline value.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Change From Baseline in Lesion Counts (Inflammatory, Non-inflammatory, and Total) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Acne lesion counts (inflammatory [papules, pustules, nodules], non-inflammatory [open and closed comedones], and total) were performed on the face of participants. Change from baseline is defined as Week 12 values minus Baseline values. The total lesion count is the sum of the inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesion counts.

  • The Percentage of Participants With a Subjects Global Assessment Score of 0 or 1 at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The SGA score is a global evaluation of acne severity performed by participants at all visits and measured on a 5-point ordinal scale, where 0=My face is basically free of acne and 5=My face has blackheads and/or whiteheads. A score of 1=My face has several blackheads and/or whiteheads and small pimples, but there are no tender deep-seated bumps or cysts.

  • The Percentage of Participants Who Had ISGA Scores of 0 or 1 at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The ISGA is a static ("snap-shot") evaluation of acne severity performed by an investigator/assessor at every visit. The ISGA score is measured on a 6-point ordinal scale, where 0=Clear and 5=Very Severe. A score of 1=Skin Almost Clear: rare non-inflammatory lesions present, with rare non-inflamed papules (papules must be resolving and may be hyper-pigmented, though not pink-red) requiring no futher treatment in the Investigator's opinion.

Study Completion Date: May 2009
Primary Completion Date: April 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
CT Gel
Drug: CT Gel
Topical gel consisting of clindamycin 1% and tretinoin 0.025%, applied once daily in the evening for 12 weeks
Active Comparator: 2
Clindamycin Gel (clindamycin)
Drug: Clindamycin Gel (clindamycin )
Clindamycin 1% gel applied topically once daily in the evening for 12 weeks
Active Comparator: 3
Tretinoin Gel (tretinoin)
Drug: Tretinoin Gel (tretinoin)
Tretinoin 0.025% gel applied topically once daily in the evening for 12 weeks
Placebo Comparator: 4
Vehicle Gel
Drug: Vehicle Gel
Topical gel without clindamycin or tretinoin applied topically once daily in the evening for 12 weeks

Detailed Description:

CT Gel is a fixed-combination product that addresses the multifactorial factors of acne vulgaris pathogenesis. Based on numerous nonclinical pharmacology studies of each active ingredient, it is expected that this new product will have three biological actions: 1) comedolytic, 2) antimicrobial, and 3) anti-inflammatory.
