Topical meclocycline sulfosalicylate, benzoyl peroxide, and a combination of the two in the treatment of acne vulgaris.

PMID: 1675534  

One hundred and six patients with acne vulgaris of the face were treated for 10 weeks with either topical meclocycline sulfosalicylate, topical benzoyl peroxide or both preparations.

The combined treatment was of intermediate efficacy with fewer local side effects.
