Brief Summary:
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.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Acne Vulgaris Drug: cortexolone 17α-propionate Phase 2

MedlinePlus related topics: Acne

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Cortexolone 17α-Propionate
Topical cream, 1.0% concentration, applied every twelve hours
Drug: cortexolone 17α-propionate
Other Name: CB-03-01

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in HPA Axis Response to Cosyntropin [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 14 ]
    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.

  2. Change in PK profiles of cortexolone 17α-propionate and cortexolone [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 14 ]
    Concentration-time profiles of cortexolone 17α-propionate and its metabolite, cortexolone, in plasma.
