EXPERT ANALYSIS AT SDEF LAS VEGAS DERMATOLOGY SEMINAR
LAS VEGAS (FRONTLINE MEDICAL NEWS) – At its core, “we understand that rosacea is an inflammatory disease,” Linda Stein Gold, MD, said at the Skin Disease Education Foundation’s annual Las Vegas Dermatology Seminar.
As with psoriasis, she added, “we understand that rosacea might have some systemic implications.”
In fact, data suggest that cardiovascular disease is independently associated with rosacea after controlling for multiple variables, she noted. “So we now believe it’s important to get the inflammation under control, not just for the skin, but for the body as a whole,” Dr. Stein Gold , director of dermatology research, Henry Ford Health System, Detroit, said in a video interview .
She disclosed receiving research support, serving as a consultant, serving on the speakers bureau, and/or serving on the scientific advisory board for multiple pharmaceutical companies.
SDEF and this organization are owned by the same parent company.
