Rosacea: Time for a New Approach was sponsored by Galderma, and contains references to the latest information about new treatments (except for the just-released Oxymetazoline based Rhofade).

The use of a phenotype approach will allow a more accurate and stringent classification of rosacea. New diagnostic tools emerge, and transcriptome analysis has revealed a possible distinct gene profile for each subtype of rosacea. A change in paradigm towards a phenotype classification, which can also easily be combined with newer diagnostic methods, such as transcriptome analysis, is an interesting possibility. The use of more objective criteria will allow those aspects that are most troubling to patients to be better targeted and allow the best treatment to be selected
