LAUSANNE, Switzerland – February 26, 2014, /PRNewswire/— Galderma, a leading global pharmaceutical company exclusively focused on dermatology, today announced that the European Commission has granted Marketing Authorisation in Europe for Mirvaso(brimonidine) 3 mg/g gel.

Applied once-daily, Mirvasoworks quickly to reduce the redness of rosacea,” said Humberto C. Antunes, President and CEO of Galderma. “This is yet another milestone in Galderma’s continued R&D commitment to address the unmet needs of patients with skin conditions.”

The European Commission decision to grant Marketing Authorisation in Europe for Mirvasois based on data collected from 553 patients enrolled in two phase 3 clinical trials of one-month duration. The results from both studies showed that adults with rosacea erythema who used Mirvaso demonstrated significantly greater reduction of the facial redness than the ones who applied vehicle gel only. In addition, a long-term study in 449 subjects who used Mirvaso for up to 12-months demonstrated that Mirvaso was effective and well tolerated.

    I have been to get BRIMONIDINE at a compounding chemist in Canberra. Helps redness at the time quite well but I don’t think it prevents it coming back again.But I can go out without looking like a tomato–or sometimes even a beetroot
