Dr. Bitter Sr: Redness topical patent
Via the Rosacea Blog:
Dr. Bitter Sr. has applied for a patent (or here) for a topical that sounds a lot like sansrosa.
I got my IPL txs from Dr. Bitter, and he's so knowledgeable and understanding about rosacea that I hope he can patent the anti-redness topical we're all looking for and become a billionaire.

Is this the"cure" we've been hoping for??? - There is a blurb on Dr. Nases' website re: a collaberation with Dr. Bitter on topical applied 1-time, is this it???

Sounds very much like it. That would be superb news if Geoffrey and Doctor Bitter were to make strides with a new anti redness topical.
Im pretty sure they were talking about gene modifiers were they not?

The first one sounds a med to go with IPL to me. Maybe its like the mother of all anti angiogenesis treatments?
I would be quite poetic, for Dr Bitter (the father of IPL for rosacea) to be the one to 'complete' the treatment and make it truly effective for all.

what stage do you apply for a patent at, pre testing trials. ie is this something coming out in about 5 years

I think it's different, because Dr. Nase's site claims that they're working on a VEGF inhibitor. I didn't read anything about VEGF in this patent.

The main question I have is, how long does it take to go from patent to product?
(I plan on having a maintenance txt at the end of August, I'm going to ask him if I can volunteer to use the stuff.)

If it's by RX then it'll take a looong time.

Either way, it seems like exciting news to know something that is actually new is being developed, not revising old ones.

If someone said to me "Bear, we are making a cool cream which will neutralise you over active flushing and render you more or less normal... but it wont be out for 5 years", then I would be MOST pleased.
Its not so much the longterm time frame that guts me, rather the unncertainy of whether or not something is on the horizon.
Now, its impossible for anyone to say with that kind of certainty that something will get approved and reach market (let alone be effective). But I a happy medium would be nice, rather than knowing nothing.
