Galderma trying Soolantra and Oracea together

Galderma is set to trial the usage of Soolantra and Oracea in combination to treat sufferers of severe rosacea.

What is Severe Rosacea?

Severe rosacea is taken here to be participants with at least 20 but not more than 70 papules and pustules. The trial will aim to show that the addition of Oracea to a topical regime of Soolantra will offer a significant benefit.

By trialing Soolantra with and without Oracea, Galderma hope to show that the combination of the two treatments offers a proven regime.

Galderma’s Big Guns

Galderma has an impressive rosacea portfolio (Soolantra, Mirvaso, Metrogel, Oracea, Cetaphil), and it is beneficial to be able to promote the combination of treatments as `extra effective’. Metrogel in combination with Oracea has attracted research interest in the past with Galderma, now the introduction of Soolantra offers Galderma the opportunity to prove that this combination is the new best-in-class treatment regime.

    I wonder if they are targeting Demodex mites? Ivermectine is useless aginst them anyway… its like banging my head against a wall everytime a different doctor gives me the same useless advice. I wish the meical industry would wake up to this!

    Congratulations on this amazing website!!

    I just found out about a new tetracycline option approved in US called sarecycline with amazing results.. its worth a posting here about it.

    • Great to hear you had amazing results, but Sarecycline is not yet submitted to the FDA for approval so is not approved or available in the US. Were you part of a clinical trial perhaps?
