Lecture at Tufts on Vitiligo News in 2014
Prof. Torello Lotti lectured at the Tufts University Medical Center in Boston on the latest research, developments and treatments in vitiligo last week, including:
- Updated hypothesis on vitiligo pathogenesis;
- New laser phototherapy equipment;
- Novel biodegradable nanovectors therapy based on SIRTUINS-Resveratrol interaction;
- New data on Neovir's nearly 80% efficacy for stopping vitiligo progression;
- Photocil, an FDA-approved lotion for selective phototherapy using sunlight, coming to market soon;
- Zanderm, a convenient vitiligo concealer; made in USA and coming to market soon.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
