    I called them yesterday. A nurse said the pill is a form of tetracyclene not yet on the market. This did not excite me much so I left it at that.

    Default rosacea study info


    Rosacea is a common skin condition of the face that may present with facial flushing, redness and nodules and other skin lesions. Doxycyline, a family of Tetracycline, has been beneficial in the treatment of inflammatory lesions in patients with rosacea. Incyclinide is an investigational new medication wherein the antimicrobial effect has been eliminated while retaining the inflammatory effect which is needed for the treatment of rosacea. An investigational medication is one that is not approved by the FDA, but may be used in research studies. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, effectiveness and tolerability of incyclinide capsules in multiple strengths for the treatment of rosacea.

    The only risk that may develop while using the medication is severe sunburn-like reaction which was reported at dosages of 40mg/day. Sunburn has not been observed at the dosage of Incyclinide to be used in this study (5-20mg). However, it is possible that some individuals may be more sensitive to the effects of Incyclinide and cannot be ruled out that severe sunburn type reaction may occur even in lower dosages. It is therefore to use sunscreen, which is provided to you, at all times while on the study.

    Your participation in the study will last up to 18 weeks and require that you complete 7 study visits, including a screening visit, to determine if you are willing and able to participate in the study and you will get paid for your visits, $20/visit, a total of $140 if you complete the study.

    If you are interested to be in the study or more information, please don't hesitate to call Encino Research Center at 818-788-5060 or email me at

    Hey, thanks so much for the information. I'm just curious though, how does this drug differ from Oracea that's already on the market? It sounds very similar.
