Safety, Efficacy and Pharmacokinetics of Rifaximin in Patients With Moderate-to-severe Papulopustular Rosacea
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
Rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory relapsing-remitting skin condition almost exclusively affecting the central area of the face and the eyes. Preliminary evidence suggests that treatment with rifaximin, a poorly absorbed oral antibiotic drug may be beneficial in patients with rosacea, particularly in those with papulopustular phenotype and positivity to Lactulose Breath Test (L-BT). The objective of this study is twofold: 1. To explore the safety and efficacy of 2 doses of oral Rifaximin versus placebo in adults with moderate-to-severe papulopustular rosacea. 2. To assess the pharmacokinetics (PK) of these two dose regimens in a sub-group of patients.
