Rosacea Review: Fall 2016

Rosacea Review - Newsletter of the National Rosacea Society

The National Rosacea Society has awarded funding for three new studies, in addition to continuing support for two ongoing studies, as part of its research grants program. The purpose of the grant program is to increase knowledge and understanding of the causes and other key aspects of rosacea that may lead to improvements in its management, prevention or potential cure.

Those who suffer from the rosacea may often hear the same comments over and over again. 

Researchers conducting a nationwide study in Denmark found that rosacea may be associated with increased risk of certain gastrointestinal (GI) diseases, but whether there is a cause-and-effect relationship is unknown.

A new study found that it might help fight the dry eye symptoms of ocular rosacea.

A majority of rosacea patients have experienced eye irritation since being diagnosed with rosacea, but most have not been treated for the eye symptoms of ocular rosacea. 

A recent study in the European Journal of Dermatology investigated the possible connection between rosacea and insulin resistance.

Research work was made all the harder for 29-year-old biologist Cielo Figuerola because of her rosacea.
