Mirvaso and Soolantra together like best buddies


Galderma is proposing a Stage 4 trial of 188 participants to demonstrate the effectiveness of Mirvaso and Soolantra used together in treating the redness and papules and pustules of rosacea.

The trial is looking for rosacea sufferers with between 15 and 70 papules and pustules and also a score of 3 or 4 in the Clinician’s Erythema Assessment (0=none, 1=mild, 2=moderate, 3=significant, 4=severe). Sufferers will be treating with Mirvaso in the morning and Soolantra in the evening, for a period of 12 weeks.

This somewhat clumisly named MOSAIC trial mirrors the post-marketing trials for Oracea that in 2010 sought to show the impact of Oracea treatment once available at a large scale (ORCA – Oracea for Rosacea: A Community-Based Assessment).

Given that we know that the real world is showing higher incidences of adverse reactions compared to the Phase 3 trials of Mirvaso, it will be interesting to see results of this Phase 4 trial.

    “How do u get on this trial and is it uk or us based”

    In general it is difficult to get on a specific trial, but you can try by confirming the location (visit the link above – sometimes location is obvious and sometimes not) and contacting the organisers. Galderma have listed someone in France to contact.
