What are the biologic treatments for rosacea? 

First, what are we referring to? Biologic treatments are those derived from biological sources rather than from totally synthesized pharmaceuticals sources. [2] This post will include those that are biologic specifically for rosacea and those that might be considered helpful for rosacea but are not specifically for rosacea, instead these treatments might be used for rosacea or other diseases. The vast majority of treatments for rosacea are derived from synthesized pharmaceutical sources and are found in this category. If you know of any other biologic treatments for rosacea not listed below find the green reply button and be a RRDi volunteer!

[2] "A biopharmaceutical, also known as a biologic(al) medical product, or biologic, is any pharmaceutical drug product manufactured in, extracted from, or semisynthesized from biological sources. Different from totally synthesized pharmaceuticals, they include vaccines, blood, blood components, allergenics, somatic cells, gene therapies, tissues, recombinant therapeutic protein, and living medicines used in cell therapy. Biologics can be composed of sugars, proteins, or nucleic acids or complex combinations of these substances, or may be living cells or tissues. They (or their precursors or components) are isolated from living sources—human, animal, plant, fungal, or microbial." Wikipedia
