†The long-term safety and efficacy of MIRVASO Gel was evaluated in a 1-year, open-label, non-comparative study in 276 subjects with moderate to severe facial redness of rosacea who used MIRVASO Gel once daily for at least 12 months.
‡The safety and efficacy of MIRVASO Gel was evaluated in 2 identical, randomized, vehicle-controlled trials with 553 patients aged 18 years and older. Study participants were randomized 1:1 to receive either MIRVASO Gel or vehicle gel once daily for 4 weeks. The primary endpoint for both studies was 2-grade composite success at hours 3, 6, 9, and 12 on day 29. The secondary endpoint was 1-grade composite success at 30 minutes on day 1. Composite success was defined as improvement on both the Clinician Erythema Assessment and Patient Self-Assessment.
