Brief Summary:
This is a 2 week Phase 1 study of SB204 (NVN1000 Gel) in healthy adult volunteers with elevated Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) counts. Subjects will apply NVN1000 4% Gel or Vehicle Gel twice daily to their face. Assessments will include cutaneous tolerability, safety, and P. acnes counts.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Acne Vulgaris Drug: NVN1000 4% Gel Drug: Vehicle Gel Phase 1

Detailed Description:
In this single-center, vehicle gel-controlled, evaluator and subject blinded study, approximately 30 otherwise healthy adult subjects with elevated P. acnes counts will be randomized 2:1 to NVN1000 4% Gel or Vehicle Gel. The subjects will apply the test material twice daily to their face after washing. Subjects will be seen daily at the skin study center during the week and will apply their evening and weekend dose at home. Cutaneous tolerability will be assessed by the Investigator at Baseline, Week 1, and Week 2. Safety assessments include collection of adverse events, laboratory results, and clinically significant changes in physical examination. P. acnes counts will be obtained at Baseline, Week 1 and Week 2.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Tolerability based on the cutaneous tolerability scores [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    Cutaneous tolerability assessments (erythema, scaling, dryness, pruritus, burning/stinging) will be summarized with frequency counts and percentages at each score category for Week 1 and Week 2.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety which includes reported adverse events, clinically significant changes in physical exam, and labs [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    Adverse events will be summarized by treatment group. Clinically significant changes in physical examination, including vital signs, over the treatment period will be reported as adverse events. Changes in laboratory results will be analyzed.

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Change in P. acnes counts [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    P. acnes counts will be obtained by culture at Baseline, Week 1 and Week 2/end of treatment. The change in P. acnes counts over time will be analyzed.
