Molecular Formula:
Molecular Weight:
Adapalene is more active than indomethacin, betamethasone valerate, tretinoin, isotretinoin or etretinate in inhibiting lipoxygease activity, but it has little activity against cyclo-oxygenase.

1.Recent advances in the use of adapalene 0.1%/benzoyl peroxide 2.5% to treat patients with moderate to severe acne.
Leyden J1. J Dermatolog Treat. 2016 Mar;27 Suppl 1:S4-S13. doi: 10.3109/09546634.2016.1145338.
The central role of inflammation in acne is now more clearly understood. Adapalene, a third-generation topical retinoid, down-regulates toll-like receptor 2 expression and inhibits activator protein-1 activity. In a fixed-dose combination, adapalene and benzoyl peroxide (BPO) act synergistically on inflammatory patterns through regulation of innate immunity. In addition to reducing inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesions, adapalene/BPO helps prevent lesion and microcomedone formation. The combination of a topical retinoid and antimicrobial agent remains the preferred approach for almost all patients with acne. In cases of more severe disease, there is a clinical benefit in combining adapalene/BPO with an oral antibiotic for 12 weeks. Most recently, adapalene/BPO plus doxycycline 200 mg was found to be highly effective when compared with isotretinoin in the treatment of patients with severe acne with nodules. Long-term maintenance therapy is needed for most patients.

BACKGROUND: More effective therapies are needed in the specific treatment of severe inflammatory acne vulgaris.
3.Accelerated Onset of Action and Increased Tolerability in Treating Acne With a Fixed-Dose Combination Gel.
Friedman A, Waite K, Brandt S, Meckfessel MH. J Drugs Dermatol. 2016 Feb 1;15(2):231-6.
Nonadherence to topical acne therapies is a major contributing factor to poor treatment outcomes. Multiple contributing factors have been identified, including a lack of perceived efficacy and fear of side effects. A fixed-dose combination gel of adapalene/benzoyl peroxide gel, 0.1%/2.5% (A-BPO) is an efficacious and safe treatment for a range of acne severities in patients as young as 9 years old. A meta-analysis of 14 clinical studies involving A-BPO was conducted to assess the 4 week efficacy and overall tolerability of this treatment. Over 2,300 subjects were included in the analysis. Mean total, inflammatory, and non-inflammatory lesion counts decreased at 4 weeks by 40.8%, 46.2%, and 37.5%, respectively. Worst post-baseline tolerability scores for stinging/burning, dryness, scaling, and erythema were none or mild for a majority of subjects. The result of this meta-analysis add to the body of literature supporting the use of A-BPO in a variety of acne patients and shows that A-BPO provides meaningful clinical results within 4 weeks and will be well-tolerated for a majority of patients.

BACKGROUND: A need exists for topical treatments in managing more severe inflammatory acne.
