The purpose of a dermatology trial is to investigate the safety and efficacy of medicines that are not approved by the FDA. Dermatology trials include treatment of skin, hair, and nails. There are different types of dermatology trials: topical medicines including ointments, creams, and gels to treat acne, precancerous lesions, eczema, fungus, athlete's foot, and psoriasis. Oral medicines are used to treat most if not all of the same conditions, and injectable medicines are used to treat diseases like psoriasis and eczema.
Our patients often inquire about work done at Skin Search, so we’ve asked past participants about their experience and here’s what they had to say.
Hear from Clinical Research Trial Participants:
“I am familiar with the process of a clinical trial and wanted to get rid of my psoriasis when I found Skin Search. My experience has been very positive as the Skin Search team is very friendly and knowledgeable. My participation in the study has helped my condition, although a time-consuming process, it is something I would encourage others to do.” – Debbie
“I heard about Skin Search through a friend of mine and wanted to participate in a clinical research study to be treated for my condition. My experience with the Skin Search team was excellent, and they were very helpful in teaching me about the process because I didn’t know much about clinical trials before working with them. If people are skeptical about participating, my first response would be that it’s easy, and the team is excellent.” Dante
“I saw Skin Search’s advertisement on Facebook and wanted to participate to get rid of a condition that I have had for 10 years. I knew nothing about the clinical trial process before working with Skin Search, but my experience with them was amazing. I would encourage others to participate in the study because it’s an opportunity to receive treatment, and possibly help future people receive treatment.” - Patricia
