Brief Summary:
The goal of this study is to evaluate a complete topical acne regimen consisting of a prescription acne medication (Epiduo® Gel) and an acne-specific cleanser (Cetaphil® DermaControl™ Foam Wash) and moisturizer with sunscreen (Cetaphil® DermaControl™ Moisturizer SPF 30) for safety, efficacy and patient satisfaction in student athletes with acne vulgaris.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Acne Vulgaris Drug: Adapalene/benzoyl peroxide gel, 0.1%/2.5% Other: Cetaphil Acne Regimen Phase 4

Detailed Description:
The overall purpose of this study was to demonstrate lesion count reduction from baseline, subject satisfaction, and compliance with a regimen of adapalene BPO used in conjunction with a foam wash and moisturizer with sunscreen in student athletes. The study hypothesis was that this regimen would reduce total lesion count (inflammatory and noninflammatory) relative to baseline. The objective of this study was to evaluate the change in lesion count (total, inflammatory, and noninflammatory) in subjects using the CoMMPlete regimen.
