The Vitligo and Pigmentation Institute of Southern California is hosting part of the trial to evaluate Rosacea-related Inflammatory Biochemical Markers in Adult Skin When Treated With Oracea  vs Placebo. This trial is looking to prove changes in inflammatory markers like the peptide LL-37 and the MMP family match the improvement seen when taking Oracea.

The trial is scheduled to involve 170 participants at multiple centres. If you are able to attend the Los Angeles clinic as detailed below, you will be compensated and may even end up receiving free Oracea during the trial.
