Treatment Guidelines

Ebook Cover (Small)

Vitiligo is incurable but manageable disease. The treatment options have undergone a sea change over the past decade. However, there is no universally effective drug or even a common viewpoint on vitiligo therapy at present, due to extreme variability of the disease and environmental conditions. 

Throughout different presentations offered at Master Classes on Vitiligo, we review features, benefits, side-effects and costs of potential interventions. In addition to our FAQ, new books offer a practical guidance for use by clinicians in different settings.

Consensus treatment guidelines are offered at national or regional levels (PubMed). Efficiency of various therapeutic modalities depends on the age of patient and time since disease onset, skin photo type, genetic background and a number of yet unknown factors.

In our studies it was shown that certain immunomodulators could be effective at stopping vitiligo progression. However, even after successful therapy, disease relapse may happen within weeks or years. Evidence suggests that an average relapse time is 4-7 years that may be considerably extended with a personalized follow-up protocol.
