Results of research sponsored by the National Rosacea Society (NRS) on cathelicidins as a causal factor in rosacea were recently published in Nature Medicine, a leading journal on biomedical science. News coverage of the study, including comments from the lead researcher Dr. Richard Gallo and NRS medical advisory board chairman Dr. Jonathan Wilkin, can be viewed here, and an abstract of the article is available here. The study results were previously summarized here on the NRS weblog.
The National Rosacea Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of people with rosacea by raising awareness, providing public health information and supporting medical research on this widespread but little-known disorder. The information the Society provides should not be considered medical advice, nor is it intended to replace
consultation with a qualified physician. The Society does not evaluate, endorse or recommend any particular medications, products, equipment or treatments. Rosacea may vary substantially from one patient to another, and treatment must be tailored by a physician for each individual case. For more information, visit About Us.
