Title: Isotretinoin in acne vulgaris: a prospective
analysis of 160 cases from Kuwait
Authors: Al-Mutairi N, et al.
Publication: J Drugs Dermatol. 2005 May-Jun;4(3):369-73.
In this study, 160 patients with moderate to severe acne were
treated with isotretinoin. The study was completed with 117 patients
(some dropped out of the study, whereas others were excluded for
other reasons). The authors found that 95.5% of patients treated
with isotretinoin achieved complete or partial clearance from
acne. However 42% experienced relapse – nearly half of them
are then given a second course of the drug.
