Application Number:13/308,413
Patent Claims: 1. A regimen for the therapeutic treatment of acne lesions, the regimen comprising topically applying to the skin of a subject in need of said treatment, as active ingredients, 0.1% to 0.3% adapalene or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof and 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, combined at fixed doses in a single formula that delivers said active ingredients together, wherein the adapalene or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof and the benzoyl peroxide are the only anti-acne active ingredients in said single formula, wherein the percentages of adapalene and benzoyl peroxide are percentages by weight relative to the total weight of said single formula, wherein said single formula is applied once daily for a period of 12 weeks, and wherein the net clinical benefit, expressed as success rate or reduction in total lesion counts in a group of such subjects, achieved by the single formula at week 8 is synergistic and numerically superior to the net clinical benefit achieved by the same dose of adapalene alone or of benzoyl peroxide alone at week 12.

2. The regimen of claim 1, wherein the single formula is a gel.

3. A regimen for the therapeutic treatment of acne lesions, the regimen comprising applying to the skin of a subject in need of said treatment, as active ingredients, 0.1% to 0.3% adapalene or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof and 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, combined at fixed doses in a single formula that delivers said active ingredients together, wherein the adapalene or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof and the benzoyl peroxide are the only anti-acne active ingredients in said single formula, wherein the percentages of adapalene and benzoyl peroxide are percentages by weight relative to the total weight of said single formula, wherein said single formula is applied once daily for a period of 12 weeks, and wherein the net clinical benefit, expressed as success rate or reduction in total lesion counts in a group of such subjects, achieved by the single formula at week 1, 4 or 8 is synergistic and numerically superior to the net clinical benefit achieved by the same dose of adapalene alone or of benzoyl peroxide alone at week 4, 8 or 12, respectively.

4. The regimen of claim 3, wherein the single formula is a gel.

5. A regimen for the therapeutic treatment of acne lesions, the regimen comprising topically applying to the skin of a subject in need of said treatment, as active ingredients, 0.1% to 0.3% adapalene or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof and 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, combined at fixed doses in a single formula that delivers said active ingredients together synergistically to reduce the number of non-inflammatory acne lesions by at least 40%, wherein the adapalene or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof and the benzoyl peroxide are the only anti-acne active ingredients in said single formula, wherein the percentages of adapalene and benzoyl peroxide are percentages by weight relative to the total weight of said single formula, wherein said single formula is applied once daily for a period of 12 weeks.

6. The regimen of claim 5, wherein the single formula is a gel.

7. A regimen for the therapeutic treatment of acne lesions, the regimen comprising applying to the skin of a subject in need of such treatment, as active ingredients, 0.1% to 0.3% adapalene or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof and 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, combined at fixed doses in a single formula that delivers said active ingredients together synergistically to reduce the number of inflammatory lesions by at least 50%, wherein the adapalene or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof and the benzoyl peroxide are the only anti-acne active ingredients in said single formula, wherein the percentages of adapalene and benzoyl peroxide are percentages by weight relative to the total weight of said single formula, wherein said single formula is applied once daily for a period of 12 weeks.

8. The regimen of claim 7, wherein the single formula is a gel.

9. A regimen for the therapeutic treatment of acne lesions, the regimen comprising topically applying to the skin of a subject in need of said treatment, as active ingredients, 0.1% to 0.3% adapalene or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof and 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, combined at fixed doses in a single formula that delivers said active ingredients together synergistically to reduce the number of total acne lesions by at least 40%, to reduce the number of non-inflammatory acne lesions by at least 40%, to reduce the number of inflammatory lesions by at least 50%, and to achieve, in a group of subjects, a degree of success of at least 20%, wherein the adapalene or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof and the benzoyl peroxide are the only anti-acne active ingredients in said single formula, wherein the percentages of adapalene and benzoyl peroxide are percentages by weight relative to the total weight of said single formula, wherein said single formula is applied once daily for a period of 12 weeks.

10. The regimen of claim 9, wherein the single formula is a gel.
