- Change from baseline in GAGS (Global Acne Grading System) index score at 12 weeks [ Time Frame: 12-week ]
TOTAL SCORE = Nose S x 1 + Chin S x 1 + Front S x 2 + Right cheek S x 2 + Left cheek S x 2 + Torso S x 3
[Severity (S): 0 = Absence; 1 = Comedones; 2 = Papules; 3 = Pustules; 4 = Nodules]
SCORE: 0 = Clean; 1-18 = Mild; 19-30 = Moderate; 31-38 = Severe; > 38 = Very severe
- AGSS (Acne Global Severity Scale) index score [ Time Frame: 0, 6 and 12-week ]
Score between 0 and 5:
0 = Clean = Normal and clear skin without evidence of acne
- = Almost clean = There are some non-inflammatory lesions, with uncommon and non-inflamed papules
- = Mild = few inflammatory lesions (no nodule-cystic lesions)
- = Moderate = Noninflammatory lesions predominate, but multiple inflammatory lesions appear (nodule-cystic lesions may be present)
- = Severe = Inflammatory lesions predominate (nodule-cystic lesions may be present)
- = Very severe = Highly inflammatory lesions predominate (several nodule-cystic lesions)
- Number of acne lesions [ Time Frame: 0, 6 and 12-week ]Number of non-inflammatory, inflammatory and total acne lesions.
- Patient subjective evaluation [ Time Frame: 0, 6 and 12-week ]Min score (Best) = 6 Max score (Worst) = 30
- Adherence to treatment [ Time Frame: 12-week ]Compliance rate (in percentage) calculated as the number of leftover capsules divided by the total number of days between visits.
- Treatment safety assessed by number of adverse events [ Time Frame: 12-week ]Number of adverse events that occur during the treatment period.
