Acne vulgaris is an extremely common condition affecting more than 80-90% of adolescents and young adults. It typically starts in late childhood or early teens, but onset may be delayed in some people well into their 20s and 30s. The incidence rate of acne is roughly the same in males and females but, males tend to have more serious conditions. Common therapies that are used for the treatment of acne include topical, systemic, herbal and combination therapies. This review is an attempt to trace out the causes of acne, to know its treatment options and precautions to be taken to prevent it.

More about this publication?
  • The aim of Current Drug Delivery is to publish peer-reviewed articles, short communications, short and in-depth reviews in the rapidly developing field of drug delivery. Modern drug research aims to build in delivery properties of a drug at the design phase, however in many cases this ideal cannot be met and the development of delivery systems becomes as important as the development as the drugs themselves.

    The journal aims to cover the latest outstanding developments in drug and vaccine delivery employing physical, physico-chemical and chemical methods. The drugs include a wide range of bioactive compounds from simple pharmaceuticals to peptides, proteins, nucleotides, nucleosides and sugars. The journal will also report progress in the fields of transport routes and mechanisms including efflux proteins and multi-drug resistance.

    The journal is essential for all pharmaceutical scientists involved in drug design, development and delivery.
