The BLISTER Study published in The Lancet

 

We are delighted to share the news that the BLISTER study, a randomised controlled trial which compared doxycycline with prednisolone as an initial treatment strategy for bullous pemphigoid, has been published in The Lancet

The research showed that doxycycline has an acceptable level of  effectiveness and has a considerably better long-term safety profile compared to oral prednisolone.  

For more information, including a video from the Chief Investigator, Professor Hywel Williams , please visit the BLISTER webpage.
