facial erythema

Not an actual patient

Persistent facial erythema in adults is the most common sign of rosacea2

  • Approximately 16 million Americans are affected by rosacea3
    • Emergence of persistent facial erythema with a central face distribution is a key to rosacea diagnosis2,4
  • Persistent facial erythema is bothersome for most adult patients with rosacea5
  • May become progressively more persistent and can worsen over time6

RHOFADE® cream is the first and only α1A adrenoceptor agonist approved for persistent facial erythema associated with rosacea in adults1

CEA = Clinician Erythema Assessment; SSA = Subject Self-Assessment for rosacea facial redness.

Results of 2 identical 29-day, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, vehicle-controlled trials to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of once-daily RHOFADE® cream in 885 subjects with moderate to severe persistent facial erythema associated with rosacea. The primary endpoint was the proportion of subjects with at least a 2-grade improvement in erythema from baseline (pre-dose on Day 1) on both the CEA and SSA scales measured at hours 3, 6, 9, and 12 on Day 29.1

To achieve composite success, investigators and subjects had to independently rate the change in persistent facial erythema as a 2-grade or greater improvement on similar 5-point scales1

4severe
3moderate
2mild
1almost clear
0clear/no signs of unwanted redness

Composite success was required to meet the primary endpoint1

Proportion of subjects with 2-grade improvement in persistent facial erythema1

CEA and SSA scales rate severity of erythema as follows: 4 = severe; 3 = moderate; 2 = mild; 1 = almost clear; 0 = clear/no signs of unwanted redness.11
