Sarecycline (initially known as WC-3035) is a tetracycline-derived antibiotic.

Paratek Pharmaceuticals, Inc. licensed the US rights to sarecycline for the treatment of acne in the United States to Actavis, a subsidiary of Allergan, while retaining rights in the rest of the world.[1]

Allergan initiated a Phase 3 study in December 2014 evaluating the efficacy and safety of sarecycline tablets 1.5 mg/kg per day taken orally for 12 weeks versus placebo in the treatment of acne vulgaris.[2] Two phase 3 randomized, multi-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies evaluating the efficacy and safety of sarecycline in moderate to severe acne reported positive results on 27 March 2017.[3]
