The NRS has just posted an easy-to-read summary of recent NRS funded research results.

The update mentions the `Gallo Research’ and describes it ; “Dr. Richard Gallo at the University of California-San Diego found a consistently aberrant innate immune response in individuals with rosacea to environmental and emotional triggers.”

Spin-off research related to type I interferon, plasmacytoid dendritic cells and enzyme involvement is also underway.

A possible link between flushing and inflammation via endothelin-converting enzyme (ECE) is being studied and gets a mention.

Finally the role of G and beta-arrestin proteins in a particular type of flushing and the demodex bacteria Bacillus oleronius are also discussed.

Check out the full rosacea research update for more information.
