    Default Articles about low dose roaccutane

    Hi folks,

    Next week, I have an 1 hour consultation with a hospital specialist to discuss low dose roaccutane. The doctor Im going to has a solid track record with research background from Novo Nordisk so I need to be prepared. I kind of need to present some studies about very low dose roaccutane in the treatment of rosacea and some studies about the safety of long courses of roaccutane. I think Ive a fair chance of receiving this experimental treatment if I have the documentation right (cause I responded relatively well to a short course this Summer). So, if any of you folks have low dose roaccutane studies to share I would be glad. I could go to a medical school library myself and do some database searches for articles. Just hope that someone else have them so I dont need to go to a library I dont know of.

    In particular, Im interested in these 2 articles:

    Jansen, T. and G. Plewig. Rosacea: classification and treatment. JR Soc
    Med 90:144-150, 1997

    Kligman, A.M. Ocular rosacea. Current concepts and therapy. Arch
    Dermatol 133:89-90, 1997

    Thanks in advance for any help, cheers

    Marc

    Thanks, but I think I need some famous names too. In Denmark, physicians are very intellectually minded so its important to present them some studies by known dermatologists. Plewig and Janssen, some of the most famous dermatologists in Europe were mentioned in my referral from my derm. I may try write to Janssen asking for specifics about treatments with 2.5 mg roaccutane and ask him whether he is willing to help me and my new derm at the hospital. There is absolutely no problem getting experimental treatments through public hospitals in Denmark or any other country in Europe (apart from the UK, where descent health care services are all private)..you just need to have a minimum of studies to present. Well, guess I need to find the articles myself, just so damn cold outside for a cosmetic intolerant person like me..keeping me away from the remote neighborhoods in Copenhagen.

    Fanta, I quite recently made a post with the exact same request as my derm would like to see medical evidence backing low-dose accutane for treatment of rosacea. I think Irishgenes replied with a link to the old esfbchannel forums where Dr. Nase posted all the references however at the time the forum was down. Now the new forum is up but not sure if the old one with all the references is up as well.

    Hi, fanta! Do you have Dr. Nase's book? Page 211 & 212 list the references for studies on accutane treatment of rosacea. Unfortunately, it looks like the ESFB Channel posts are still not on the Rosacea Search Engine and may be lost forever. But Dr. Nase did make some posts on the other boards about this topic, and you might find something useful by going up to the "Go!" box and typing in "Plewig" or "Kligman".

    I didnt get the 2.5 mg in Denmark. I can get all the blood tests done howeever, just have to find a derm in a country where 2.5 mg is allowed and then have tests at the hospital in Denmark. The problem in Denmark is that a GP makes 150.000 USD a year, derms, hospital doctors make more money. They dont have to pay any insurance schemes or anything, the money goes down the pocket. To be frank, Danish doctors are lazy!

    thanks for the link, i wanna buy the book for the info but also so i can use it for a reference when i go to the derm, cause most of the time if you suggest accutane or laser, they will just look at you as if you are crazy.

    Good luck. I took the book to a couple of derms, and they just brushed it aside without looking at it. Most of them are not interested in learning anything new, especially from a patient.
