Actinic keratosis, often shortened to AK or referred to as solar keratosis, is the development of crusty, scaly growths in the skin which are caused by UV ray damage. It is estimated the condition affects around 58 million Americans.
Actinic keratosis usually appears on areas that are more exposed to the sun, including the bald scalp, back of hands, face, and lips. Their texture is typically scaly and raised, and they can range in color from pink, tan, and flesh-toned to red.
Catching actinic keratosis early is crucial; when left untreated, it is possible it could turn into the second most common type of skin cancer: squamous cell carcinoma.
Research into actinic keratosis focuses on finding drugs and treatments to improve symptoms or even cure the condition. Clinical trials are a necessary part of finding treatment for actinic keratosis.
If you suffer from actinic keratosis, you might be eligible to volunteer for a clinical trial in your area. Participants may receive compensation for time and travel. To see if you or someone you know may qualify, please contact us at 614-501-6164 or complete our online volunteer form.
The staff is all extremely friendly and professional. Looking forward to future studies
This is a great way to make extra money and be involved in a research study that will help and benefit many people to come. Thanks. I’ve really enjoyed myself with the program and with the staff.
Have found a significant change to the better from my research study. I experienced less shortage of breath and much better sleep. My daily activities are less hampered because of my better breathing. Thank you all.
Excellent staff. Dr. Arora took the time to not only explain everything but made every step of the research process a very pleasant, hopeful and informative journey.
