Interested in participating in a clinical trial? At Thomas Dermatology, we offer eligible patients the opportunity to enroll in clinical trials sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry. These trials are designed to answer specific research questions covering a wide variety of different dermatologic conditions, ranging from psoriasis and acne to eczema and pre-cancerous growths. Often, they involve treatments involving or related to commonly prescribed medications. Furthermore, these trials are designed and performed under strict criteria and regulations that safeguard the health of our patients. Safety is always our priority.
These clinical studies benefit our patients because those enrolled have access (at no charge) to effective medications that would otherwise be poorly covered by commercial or federal insurance plans. In fact, individual health insurance coverage is not required nor solicited for participation. Furthermore, patients are often compensated for their time as enrollees.
These clinical trials serve a vital role in the advancement of medicine, as it is only through studies like these that novel and effective treatments can be developed and approved for use in the United States. The results of participation truly make a difference in the care of future patients.
We are in the process of enrollment for the following indications:
