Allergan announced the launch of Rhofade (oxymetazoline HCl) cream 1% for the treatment of persistent facial erythema associated with rosacea in adults.

Rhofade, a once-daily topical cream, was initially approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2017. Oxymetazoline is an alpha-1A adrenorceptor agonist that acts as a vasoconstrictor. The FDA approval of  Rhofade was based on data from two identical, multicentered, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, and vehicle-controlled trials in moderate or severe patients (n=885).
