RRDi publishes first edition of their Rosacea Journal

Written by on March 16, 2010 in research, research foundation with 3 Comments

rrdi-rosacea-journal Brady Barrows has announced that the RRDi has published the Journal of the Rosacea Research & Development Institute: Volume 1 Number 1, 2010.

The journal has been produced by volunteer rosacea sufferers and consists of `articles by dermatologists, physicians, naturopaths, researchers and patients’.

This first edition is available for $15 from amazon.com and iUniverse. The purchase price is used to further the journal’s publication and lead to some novel rosacea research – although one can imagine that many thousands will need be sold to be able to fund research.

Volume 1, Number 1 Contents.

  • A new class of topical medications may soon be available to treat facial redness
  • Ocular rosacea, the number one contributor to poor ocular surface health
  • Rheumatic autoimmunity as the cause of rosacea
  • Inside rosacea
  • Optimizing redness reduction, part I: Rosacea and skin care
  • The importance of essential fatty acids for rosacea
  • Food choices for rosacea immunity
  • Rosacea, inflammation, and aging: The inefficiency of stress
  • Psychological stress and rosacea
  • The role of Demodex mites in the pathogenesis of rosacea and blepharitis and their control
  • A molecular link between rosacea and gastrointestinal disease
  • Signal Transduction Modulators to treat rosacea
  • The effect of dietary salt on rosacea
  • Is it possible for rosaceans to do research?
  • Research Highlights
  • Books and articles to be published in the future

When I am able to read a copy I’ll post a review of the contents. Congratulations to all who contributed to this publication.
