Abstract

Azelaic acid 20% cream (AZELEX) is a novel anti-acne agent with antimicrobial activity and keratinization-normalizing properties. In acne it is broadly comparable in efficacy to 0.05% tretinoin, 5% benzoyl peroxide, and 2% erythromycin, but is less irritating than tretinoin and benzoyl peroxide.
