Clinical Trials Related to Evoclin (Clindamycin Topical)

Adherence to Study Medication Compared to Generic Topical Clindamycin Plus Generic Topical Tretinoin in Subjects With Mild to Moderate Acne Vulgaris [Completed]
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the effectiveness of two different types of topical acne medication. This study will help to determine if one combined medication results in better acne improvement than two separate medications for acne.

Systemic and Topical Treatments for Rash Secondary to Erlotinib in Lung Cancer [Completed]
The purpose of this trial is to determine if rash caused by erlotinib can be successfully treated and if so to determine the optimal treatment approach. Hypothesis: Hypothesis 1: If the incidence of rash is 50% while on erlotinib, prophylactic monotherapy with minocycline can prevent occurrence in 50% of these patients. Hypothesis 2: Treatment of rash is successful in improving rash by at least one Grade in 80% of patients. Hypothesis 3: In patients with untreated rash, the rash will be self-limiting in 25% of patients, and 65% will be grade 1, 2A, and 2b. Ten percent will be grade 3 requiring treatment with monotherapy intervention.

Efficacy and Safety of a Preparation Containing an Antibiotic and Anti-Inflammatory Agent in Acne Vulgaris [Completed]
The concept behind our study was to combine an effect of antibiotic and anti-inflammatory agents for a more efficient acne therapy directed at the factors involved in the pathophysiology of the disease. For this purpose we evaluated a combination of clindamycin phosphate and salicylic acid in a non-irritating carrier.
