Challenges to current Therapy  Stagnant Market  Side effects leading to  Increasing antibiotic  Treatment to the disease not the individual  While top 5 performing anti-acne topicals had sales exceeding 950 million in 2013, all had expired patents, no innovative targets, and limited market growth.  90% in the preclinical pipeline consist of
reformulated versions of retinols and/or antibiotics.  Of the 74 clinical trials actively recruiting
acne patients > 45% are using antibiotics, BP or retinoids as the intervention. Rx in Development Side Effects Topicals  Photosensitivity Side effects Oral Rx  Isotretinoin – Nausea/vomiting – Photosensitivity – DISH (diffuse – Hyperpigmentation interstitial skeletal hyperostosis) – Psuedotumor cerebri – Photosensitivity – Long term risk IBD cholesterol/TGs/LFTs Antibiotic Resistance  PO and topical antibiotics mainstay of acne therapy  5 million prescriptions for oral antibiotics are written  Resistance in acne has continued to rise from 20% in 1978 to 72.5% in 1995,  Investigations linking resistant strains to higher counts of P. acnes and therapeutic failure  Resistance to P. acnes develops in 50% of individuals following treatment with both topical and oral antibiotics. Antibiotic Resistance  Antibiotic-resistance occurs when genetic elements, such as transposons and plasmids, are transferred to other strains or species within the resident skin flora  However, with erythromycin, clindamycin, and tetracyclines, resistance is associated with point mutations in rRNA  Most resistance of P. acnes to erythromycin is cross-resistant to clindamycin Acne Future: Addressing the  Innovative Targets  Tailored/personalize Innovative Targets Looking to Nature  Salix tree-salicylic acid-(Aspirin)  Pacific Yew-Taxols-(Paclitaxel)  Opium poppy-(Morphine)  Resveratrol (3,5,4'- trihydroxystilbene) polyphenol  Red wine, colored berries,  Fresh grape skins contain 50-  Red wine contains 1.5-3 Resveratrol's role in plants  Expression correlated to environmental stress and pathogenic attacks  Stressors: sunlight, arthropod  High stress environments increase resveratrol production.

Combination Resveratrol/BP  Combination is more effective than either compound alone in vitro  Evaluating whether this translates to enhanced efficacy, better tolerability at lower therapeutic doses of benzoyl peroxide  Resveratrol has anti-androgenic, anti- inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that may target three of the four major pathogenic factors in acne formation.
