Article

The Food and Drug Administration has approved a pump dispenser for Galderma’s Differin (adapalene) Gel 0.3 percent, a retinoid indicated for the topical treatment of acne vulgaris in patients age 12 and older.

Washington - The Food and Drug Administration has approved a pump dispenser for Galderma’s Differin (adapalene) Gel 0.3 percent, a retinoid indicated for the topical treatment of acne vulgaris in patients age 12 and older.

Marketwire reports that the approval marks the first-ever pump dispenser for Differin Gel. The prescription pump will be available nationwide in the second quarter.

According to Marketwire, a recently completed preference survey involving 291 physician-diagnosed acne patients ages 12 to 35 ascertained patient preference for a pump delivery system of an adapalene-containing acne product versus a tube delivery system.
