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;

I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
