GlaxoSmithKline Korea got marketing approval for Duac Gel 3%, its acne treatment, the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety said on September 19.

Duac Gel 3% contains clindamycin 1% and benzoyl peroxide 3%. Its strength is lower than Duac Gel 5% (clindamycin 1.2% and benzoyl peroxide 5%).

Duac Gel 5% currently accounts for 15% of the acne drugs market. The sales of Duac Gel 5% were about 2.3 billion won. Galderma’s Epiduo Gel racked up 2.2 billion won last year.

GSK Korea needs to decide when to roll out Duac Gel 3%. The earliest estimate will be before June, 2015.
