Psoriasis is a disease that causes raised, red or white scaly patches to appear on the skin. These patches are usually on the elbows, knees and scalp, but can appear on any area of the body. This condition can be itchy and painful, and the patches may also crack or bleed. The causes of psoriasis are unknown, but research shows that the immune system and genetics play a role in its development. Primarily seen in adults, psoriasis affects approximately 7.5 million Americans.
While there are multiple types of psoriasis, the most common is plaque psoriasis, which is typically diagnosed by a dermatologist after an examination of the affected area. An individual can have mild, moderate or severe plaque psoriasis and treatments will vary depending on the severity of their condition.
Research into moderate to severe plaque psoriasis focuses on finding treatments to improve symptoms or even cure the disease. Clinical trials are a necessary part of any medical research, and there are many focused on moderate to severe plaque psoriasis treatment.
If you suffer from moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, you might be eligible to volunteer for a clinical trial. 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.
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. I’ve really enjoyed myself with the program and with the staff.
"Thank you for your courtesy and kindness. I felt confident and comfortable. I would recommend the research study here. My coordinator was awesome and very caring."
Any stigma or hesitation about clinical research should be disregarded. A good learning program for research studies.
It's a good way to find out if there's some new drugs that can help people that have problems like mine and the people here are just wonderful to work with.
