Q. Is there any general medical opinion on how many years away we are from finding a cure for rosacea?
A. No one can predict how long it might take to find and develop a cure for rosacea, but through ongoing medical research significant progress is being made at determining its underlying cause or causes. This is usually the first step in discovering a cure or prevention for a disease.
Studies funded by the NRS since the inception of its research grants program have not only yielded significant results that have improved physicians' understanding of the disorder, but may increase their ability to effectively control its various potential signs and symptoms. These findings also provide a platform for further research that may lead to a cure.
The National Rosacea Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of people with rosacea by raising awareness, providing public health information and supporting medical research on this widespread but little-known disorder. The information the Society provides should not be considered medical advice, nor is it intended to replace
consultation with a qualified physician. The Society does not evaluate, endorse or recommend any particular medications, products, equipment or treatments. Rosacea may vary substantially from one patient to another, and treatment must be tailored by a physician for each individual case. For more information, visit About Us.
