About Acanya Gel

Acanya Gel is the only FDA-approved fixed combination antibiotic and benzoyl peroxide (BPO) medication for once-daily treatment of both non-inflammatory and inflammatory lesions of acne. Formulated in an aqueous-based, alcohol-free gel, Acanya Gel was optimized to provide enhanced bioavailability of BPO, creating an effective and well tolerated product. In pivotal Phase III clinical trials, Acanya Gel showed superior efficacy to the vehicle gel and either individual active ingredient, while demonstrating excellent tolerability and very high patient satisfaction scores.

Acanya Gel was developed by Arcutis Pharmaceuticals, now a part of Coria Laboratories, a division of Valeant Pharmaceuticals International. Acanya Gel is protected by two U.S. Patents and has pending patent applications. More information about Acanya Gel can be obtained at http://www.AcanyaGel.com.

Acanya Gel (clindamycin phosphate 1.2% and benzoyl peroxide 2.5%) is indicated for the topical treatment of acne vulgaris in patients 12 years of age or older. In controlled clinical trials, the following application-site adverse reactions occurred in less than 0.2% of patients treated with Acanya Gel: application-site pain (0.1%), application-site exfoliation (0.1%), and application-site irritation (0.1%).
