Al Danah Medical Company and Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmetique holds symposium on common dermatological problems

Al Danah Medical Company and Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmetique held a symposium about common dermatological problems on 30th January 2014, 8:00 PM at Four Seasons Hotel, Al Daibel Venue, Al Doha, Qatar.

The symposium had two main topics related to common dermatological problems. The keynote speakers are Dr. Didier COUSTOU (Dermatologist, Toulouse, France) and Dr. Vincent DUROSIER, (Medical Director, Laboratoires Dermatologiques DUCRAY) who discussed these problems and effective solutions for them.

The first topic presented by Dr. Didier COUSTOU (Dermatologist, Toulouse, France) addressed, delegated and led discussions on Oral isotretinoin: Recent data, Optimal Management and Frequently Asked Questions.

Isotretinoin was launched in 1982 in the United States and in 1984 in France for treatment of acne. Around 20 million patients have already been treated with isotretinoin worldwide since its launch. In France, 100,000 patients receive this treatment each year. Of those, 52% are adolescents (14-19 years). This treatment is also given later on, in patients whose acne has not responded to other treatments: 44% of patients are between 20 and 39 years. Isotretinoin is prescribed for women and men equally.

The second topic presented Dr. Vincent DUROSIER (Medical Director, Laboratoires Dermatologiques DUCRAY) who had a speech about a newly launched product, Anacaps, under the title of “Diffuse hair loss & Ducray answer”.

Anacaps Concentrate is a complete treatment that will nourish and strengthen hair and nails. Thanks to its complete (sulfur-rich amino acids) and original (soya isoflavones) formula, Anacaps Concentrate provides the hair bulb and nail matrix with essential nutrients to help regain force and vitality. A source of cystine and methionine, it boosts hair and nail resistance, encouraging their growth. The Vitamin complex works to activate cellular metabolism in hair and helps reinforce its structure. Soybean extracts stimulate hair growth and preserve from early aging. A group of VIP dermatologists and pharmacists attended the symposium.
