After 48 weeks, there was overall clinical improvement in 80% of subjects, including reduction of erythema and papules. The investigators saw continual, statistically significant mean improvement with Pyratine XR(TM) treatment, including a 90% improvement in lesions, 45% improvement in erythema and a 28% improvement in telangiectasia. The product was well tolerated, and in an earlier assessment of 24 patients, there was a 41% mean improvement in skin dryness as early as week four, with results continuing to improve over the 48-week period. Pyratine XR(TM) produced a significant improvement in skin barrier function at weeks 4 through 48 as measured by a decrease in water loss from the skin.
According to the National Rosacea Society, more than 14 million Americans have rosacea, yet only a small fraction are being treated. The chronic skin disease can affect adults and children of any skin type. While the cause is unknown and there is no cure, scientific advancements are now offering rosacea sufferers hope and a way to control the signs and symptoms of this potentially life-disruptive disorder.
