Answer Study

Not an actual patient

Let's clear up the facts

Combination treatment has the potential to improve outcomes. For this study, we added Oracea® (doxycycline, USP) 40mg Capsules to Soolantra® (ivermectin) Cream, 1% to measure efficacy and ensure the treatment approach aims for 'clear'.1 Clear is defined as IGA score of 0 according to the IGA (Investigator Global Assessment) scale, which is commonly used by dermatologists.

Both molecules have independent and cooperative effects on the inflammatory pathways of rosacea.

Soolantra Cream Long-Term Safety Study: Treatment Related AEs4**

soolantra study graph with data

A greater percentage of subjects on vehicle/azelaic acid had treatment related AEs vs subjects using Soolantra Cream.
No severe or serious AEs were considered related to Soolantra Cream or AzA.
Five subjects in Soolantra Cream group and 4 subjects in the AzA group discontinued from the study due to an AE during Part B. None of the AEs that led to discontinuation in the
Soolantra Cream group were considered related to Soolantra Cream.
**A Subject was counted once even if the subject experienced more than 1 AE during the study.
