Psoriasis is a genetic condition of the immune system which affects the regular production of skin cells to over-produce, causing patches of thickened skin, silvery scales and flakes and itchy sores. Psoriasis is an extremely common condition, affecting more than 100 million individuals globally. Normal skin cells reproduce every few weeks, but when someone has Psoriasis, their skin cells reproduce in a matter of days. Psoriasis patches are typically found on the elbows, knees, and scalp but can potentially appear on any area of the body.
Psoriasis is not a contagious condition. A combination of genetic and environmental factors can contribute to having Psoriasis, with members of a single family usually sharing the diagnosis.
There are many different symptoms that people experience when they have Psoriasis:
Treatment of psoriasis encompasses several topical, oral and systemic medications that can help ease the symptoms. The most advanced and effective therapies include biologic drugs.
The Psoriasis Research Study is investigating how well a study drug works as a possible treatment for plaque-type psoriasis.
A Clinical Research Study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps answer important questions about an investigational drug or device, such as: does it work, or how effective is it compared to another drug/device?
All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved by regulatory authorities for doctors to prescribe to patients. Without people taking part in these studies, we would have no new treatments. The volunteers who participate in clinical research studies play a major role in helping to advance medicine.
The Psoriasis Study will include various visits to a study clinic in your area and follow up phone calls at designated times.
All study-related care is provided at no cost to you. You do not need health insurance to participate.
Volunteers who take part in the study may receive compensation for their time and travel. Participation is entirely voluntary. Even if you decide to take part in this study, you can change your mind about participating at any time.
