Fabior Foam, 0.1% Approved for Acne Vulgaris
Stiefel has received FDA approval for Fabior Foam, 0.1%, for the treatment of acne vulgaris in patients 12 years of age and older. The approval of Fabior Foam was based on two multi-center, randomized, double-blind, vehicle-controlled pivotal Phase 3 studies conducted in the US and Canada.
Fabior contains tazarotene, a retinoid in a topical foam formulation. While the mechanism of action is not clearly defined, the therapeutic effect of tazarotene in acne may be due to its anti-hyperproliferative, normalizing-of-differentiation and anti-inflammatory effects. Tazarotene is considered teratogenic and is therefore contraindicated during pregnancy. Females of childbearing potential should have a negative pregnancy test within two weeks prior to initiating treatment and use an effective method of contraception during treatment.
Fabior Foam will be supplied in 50g and 100g aluminum cans.
