The Anatabloc® serum is specifically formulated to penetrate the skin and target specific skin concerns, including, wrinkles, firming, age spots, and discolorations.  Regular application of the serum can significantly improve the appearance of the skin. The serum is designed to be used prior to the application of Anatabloc® Rare Cellular Facial Creme. 

David Dean, Star Scientific's Vice President for Sales and Marketing, stated, "We are proud to have an expanded presence in the GNC system, with all four of our Anatabloc® products being offered to consumers.  Anatabloc® Original can be purchased in all GNC stores, and all of our products, Anatabloc® Original, Anatabloc® Unflavored, the cream and the serum are available on GNC's website. This is a great opportunity to increase our outreach to customers and sales."

As previously reported, a multi-site clinical (human) dermatological study of the Anatabloc ® Facial Creme is underway to determine if the product is helpful to individuals with mild to moderate rosacea. The clinical trial is being supervised by Dr. Susan H. Weinkle of Bradenton, Florida, an experienced and respected practitioner and clinical investigator.  The other two investigators are leading dermatologists, Dr. Mary Lupo of New Orleans, Louisiana, and Dr. Diane Berson of New York City, NY.  As of today, the study has enrolled over 100 subjects and screening is now closed.
