Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the patient-reported outcomes (PROs) in terms of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and signs of Acne Vulgaris (AV) among patients with moderate to severe non-nodular AV who are administered sarecycline (Seysara®) in real-world community practice settings in the United States (U.S). Investigator's Global Assessment (IGA) of AV and safety measures associated with use of sarecycline (Seysara®) will be assessed over the study observation period of 12 weeks. Clinicians will prescribe sarecycline (Seyara®) as per their own clinical judgment and standard practice.
