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. These trials are designed and performed under strict criteria and regulations that safeguard the health of our patients. Safety is always our top 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 for participation. They 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.
Participation in our Clinical Trials rewards the patient with effective treatments at no cost. It is also common to receive payments for your participation. Several patients have received payments in excess of $500!
