Duac Topical Gel
During clinical trials, all patients were graded for facial erythema, peeling, burning, and dryness on the following scale: 0 = absent, 1 = mild, 2 = moderate, and 3 = severe. The percentage of patients that had symptoms present before treatment (at baseline) and during treatment were as follows:
Local reactions with use of DUAC® Gel % of patients using
DUAC® Gel with symptom present Combined results from 5 studies (n = 397)
|Before Treatment (Baseline)||During Treatment|
|Burning||3%||< 1%||0||5%||< 1%||0|
(Percentages derived by # subjects with symptom score/# enrolled DUAC® Gel subjects, n = 397).
Anaphylaxis, as well as allergic reactions leading to hospitalization, has been reported in post-marketing use with DUAC® Gel. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.
