Rosacea’s Inflammation Mechanisms: Symposium Notes

Written by on December 6, 2010 in What Causes Rosacea? with 0 Comments

Thanks for the tip from Dan, here is an interesting presentation from the AAD Summer Academy Meeting, August 4-8, Chicago, Ill.

The notes are titled Acne and Rosacea: Inflammatory mechanisms and their impact on therapy and were part of Symposium S012. The Symposium was titled What’s Breaking Out: Acne and Rosacea. Dr. Bhatia was the first speaker, and was down to cover this material in 30 minutes.

The handouts are snapshots of the 41 slides in the presentation slides and naturally a lot more information would have been available at the presentation itself.

Following are some slide titles and extracts to whet your appetite. For the full handouts see the PDF link above. This stuff is pretty technical, so don’t feel too bad if there is unfamiliar terminology being used.
