NO: Caution... Was: NO - another false promise??
After my initially optimistic post I have a slight word of caution.
I have been in contact with a professor of dermatology in the UK who
is performing a pilot study on topical NO inhibitors specifically on
rosacea. He says that from the initial results "it doesn't look very
hopeful which is surprising and disappointing". This goes against a
couple of other pilot studies which Dr. Nase cites in his book so I
guess it is very much going to be a case of wait and see. It may be
that certain NO inhibitors are more effective than others, or that
the carrier cream plays a significant part.
