John Harris on dietary supplements for vitiligo

Dr. John E Harris is an Assistant Professor in the Dermatology Division, Department of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS). Dr. Harris directs the Vitiligo Clinic and Research Centre at UMMS, which incorporates a specialty clinic for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with vitiligo, as well as a vitiligo research laboratory. He writes in his blog:

"I am a physician-scientist who focuses my clinical and research efforts on vitiligo, and, therefore, I think about this disease a lot – all the time, in fact. I thought it would be helpful to share my thoughts with others who are interested in vitiligo as well, particularly the patients who suffer from it and their loved ones. I want to make clear that while I am affiliated with many vitiligo organisations my comments in this blog are my own, and do not reflect the opinions of those organizations. In addition, my research is largely focused on finding new treatments, and ultimately a cure, for vitiligo. Please know that, to the best of my ability, all of my comments are unbiased reflections of my understanding of vitiligo as both a physician and scientist."
