Registration number: LP-001666

Clinical surveys:

During clinical surveys where patients with moderate and medium severity of acne rash participated, it was found that efficiency of treatment (reduction of damage) carried out with minoleksin(100 mg per day during 4 weeks then 50 mg per day during 8 weeks) was higher than efficiency of treatment carried out with lymecycline (300 mg per day during 12 weeks).

Besides, during two other clinical surveys where minoleksin and tetracycline were used during 6 weeks the best effect was visible in group taking minoleksin.
