FDA Approves Differin Pump

Thursday, March 08, 2012 | FDA Approval/Clearance


FDA approved a new pump dispenser for Galderma's Differin Gel 0.3% (adapalene). The new pump dispenser will be available in pharmacies by prescription in the second quarter. According to results of a recent preference survey, involving 291 physician-diagnosed acne patients ages, 12-35, 79% of acne patients indicated that they preferred the new pump delivery system over a tube. Additionally, Galderma reports, 92% of acne patients rated their experience as “satisfied” with the pump delivery system, and 88% of acne patients said the pump made it easier for them to follow their doctor’s instructions. More than 90% of acne patients found the pump to deliver a consistent amount of product to their face during each use and to save time during treatment administration.
