Amzeeq provides the trusted legacy of minocycline

Amzeeq delivers minocycline directly on the skin, and systemic absorption is very low1,5
Interventional maximum use pharmacokinetic study
  • Adult patients, 18 years or older with acne vulgaris, were administered 1 single dose of oral minocycline extended-release tablets dosed 1 mg/kg
  • Following a 10-day wash-out period, patients then began topical Amzeeq 4% therapy dosed 4 g/day (8x the recommended dose in clinical trials) applied for 21 days

Clinical significance of lower systemic exposure with Amzeeq is unknown.
  • The overall pediatric population showed 2.4-fold and 2.7-fold higher Cmax and AUCO-24h compared to the adult population
  • There were no significant differences in the minocycline pharmacokinetics within the pediatric population among subjects 10 years to less than 17 years of age with acne vulgaris
  • *730-765.
  • Blood samples were obtained before and after administration of oral minocycline and each topical application of Amzeeq 4% on days 1, 12, and 21.
Amzeeq was evaluated in a large population of patients over three studies1
Large phase 3 trials were conducted, leading to Amzeeq's approval for the treatment of inflammatory lesions of non-nodular moderate to severe acne vulgaris in adults and pediatric patients 9 years of age and older.

40 week open study icon
  • 20-50 inflammatory lesions (papules, pustules, nodules) and 25-100 noninflammatory lesions (open, closed comedones)
  • IGA 6-point scale–moderate or severe (grade 3 or 4)
  • No other topical or systemic acne medication was permitted for use during these studies
  • Absolute change from baseline in inflammatory lesion count at Week 12
  • IGA endpoint success at Week 12, where success is defined as an IGA score of 0 or 1 (clear or almost clear), and at least a 2-grade improvement (decrease) from baseline
safety evaluations
  • Adverse events, physical exams, vitals, dermal tolerability, labs
  • Study 1 (2:1) N=466; Study 2 (2:1) N=464; Study 3 (1:1) N=1488.
  • §Patients in Studies 1 and 2 who completed the first 12 weeks, and with an IGA score that had not worsened when compared to baseline at Week 12 (N=657).
  • IGA=Investigator's Global Assessment.
Amzeeq demonstrated improvement in inflammatory lesions and IGA scores at Week 121

The average percent reduction in inflammatory lesions and percent of patients achieving IGA endpoint success at Week 12 was -43% to -54% and 8.1% to 30.8%, respectively.##
