In this study, 175 patients were divided into 3 groups, which
• 0.1% adapalene gel
• 5% benzoyl peroxide lotion
• Combination of adapalene and benzoyl peroxide
Twelve patients were subsequently excluded (for non-compliance
of the regimen and allergic reaction). When the authors studied
the result, they found no difference in efficacy or side effects
in all three groups.
