rss Posted May 29, 2015 Report Share Posted May 29, 2015 The treatment of rosacea with topical ivermectin. Drugs Today (Barc). 2015 Apr;51(4):243-250 Authors: Ali ST, Alinia H, Feldman SR Abstract The treatment of rosacea is challenging because several pathophysiologic processes may be involved, including neurovascular dysregulation and alterations in innate immune status. Demodex mites may play a role in the latter mechanism. Topical ivermectin is a new therapeutic modality which demonstrates antiparasitic and anti-inflammatory properties. This article reviews published evidence related to the efficacy and safety of topical ivermectin. PubMed was utilized to search for key words "topical ivermectin", "ivermectin cream" and "rosacea". Three clinical trials were found that studied topical ivermectin as a treatment option for rosacea. Ivermectin was effective, safe and well tolerated.PMID: 26020066 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26020066?dopt=Abstract = URL to article Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
