Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Therapeutic Equivalence [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    The primary equivalence comparison is that between the test and reference products for the mean percent change from baseline in the inflammatory lesion counts, the non-inflammatory lesion counts and the proportion of "success" patients at Visit 5, as measured using the Investigator's Global Evaluation (IGE).

  2. Superiority [ Time Frame: 12 Weeks ]
    The primary superiority evaluations are the comparisons between each active treatment and the vehicle control relative to the mean percent change in the inflammatory lesion counts, the non-inflammatory lesion counts and the proportion of "success" patients at Visit 5, as measured using the IGE.

  3. Safety [ Time Frame: 12 Weeks ]
    All treatment-emergent adverse events reported during the study will be summarized in order to assess safety.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Total Lesions [ Time Frame: 12 Weeks ]
    The secondary efficacy measure is the mean percent reduction in the total lesion count (inflammatory lesion count + non-inflammatory lesion count) at Visit 5.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Male or female patients must be 12 years old or older.
  2. Patients who are 18 years of age or older must have provided IRB approved written informed consent. Patients between the ages of 12 to 17 years of age must have provided IRB approved written assent; this written assent must be accompanied by an IRB approved written informed consent from the patient's legally acceptable representative (i.e., parent or guardian). In addition, all patients or their legally acceptable representatives (i.e., parent or guardian) must sign a HIPAA authorization, if applicable
  3. Patients must have a definite clinical diagnosis of acne vulgaris of mild to moderate severity (Grade 2 or Grade 3 on the IGE).
  4. Patients must have a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 60 facial inflammatory lesions at baseline. Patients must also have a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 75 facial comedones at baseline. Patients may have no more than one (1) nodulo-cystic lesion at baseline. For the purposes of study treatment and evaluation, these lesions should be limited to the facial treatment area. Lesions involving the eyes, angles of the nose (i.e., the lines around your nostrils and under the nostrils) and scalp should be excluded from the count. Patients may have acne lesions on other areas of the body (e.g., on the back).
  5. Female patients of childbearing potential must have been using and must agree to continue to practice abstinence or use accepted methods of birth control, from 30 days prior to study entry to 30 days after the last administration of study drug. All female patients are considered to be of childbearing potential unless they have been surgically sterilized or have been postmenopausal for at least 1 year. Abstinence is an acceptable method of birth control. Alternatively, any of the following methods of birth control are acceptable: oral contraceptives, contraceptive patches/implants (e.g., Norplant®) Depo-Provera®, double barrier methods (e.g., condom and spermicide) or IUD. Female patients must have a negative urine pregnancy test at baseline.
  6. All male patients must agree to use accepted methods of birth control with their partners, from the day of the first dose administration to 30 days after the last administration of study drug. Abstinence is an acceptable method of birth control. Alternatively, any of the following methods of birth control are acceptable: oral contraceptives, contraceptive patches/implants (e.g., Norplant®), Depo-Provera®, double barrier methods (e.g., condom and spermicide) or IUD.
  7. Patients must be willing and able to understand and comply with the requirements of the protocol, including attendance at the required study visits.
  8. Patients must be willing to refrain from using any treatments for acne vulgaris, other than the investigational product, for acne present on the face. Patients may use other topical acne treatments that do not have significant or measurable systemic absorption for treatment of acne of the back, shoulders and chest (e.g., benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid).
  9. Patients must be in good health and free from any clinically significant disease, including but not limited to, conditions that may interfere with the evaluation of acne vulgaris. Such conditions include, but are not limited to the following: rosacea; seborrheic dermatitis; perioral dermatitis; corticosteroid-induced acne; carcinoid syndrome; mastocytosis; acneiform eruptions caused by make-up, medication, facial psoriasis and facial eczema.
  10. Patients who use make-up must have used the same brands/types of make-up for a minimum period of 14 days prior to study entry and must agree to not change make-up brand/type or frequency of use throughout the study.
