Ivermectin 1% (CD5024) for the treatment of rosacea.

Expert Opin Pharmacother. 2018 Mar 16;:1-6

Authors: Sahni DR, Feldman SR, Taylor SL

Abstract
INTRODUCTION: Rosacea is a chronic and recurrent disease with a variety of cutaneous manifestations. The disorder is a centrofacial inflammatory dermatosis with significant financial, physical and psychological impacts. There are a number of topical, oral and systemic treatments available. Yet, treatment for rosacea remains difficult. The multifactorial nature of the disease combined with an incomplete understanding of the pathophysiology is challenging for providers and patients. Areas covered: This article provides an in-depth review of rosacea treatment and emerging use of ivermectin 1% cream for papulopustular rosacea based on multiple clinical trials. The PubMed database was searched using the combination of keywords "ivermectin, rosacea, and papulopustular." Expert opinion: Topical ivermectin 1% cream has emerged as a novel agent for treatment of papulopustular rosacea. The drug targets the Demodex mite which is increased in patients with rosacea. Though ivermectin 1% is a clinically efficacious medication, poor adherence continues to remain an issue due to topical application. Ultimately, the agent has the potential to be an effective drug when used as a single or combination agent. With the move to limit chronic antibiotic use, topical agents such as ivermectin 1% will continue to thrive as a specialized niche in the rosacea market.
