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. A randomized, double-blind parallel group study was used. Benzoyl peroxide proved more effective than meclocycline in reducing acne lesion counts, while local side effects were more common in the benzoyl peroxide-treated patients. The combined treatment was of intermediate efficacy with fewer local side effects.
