Our Reseach Team

Clinical Research trials are used to test and evaluate investigational drugs, treatments, and new devices.  Investigational products must prove to be safe and effective before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will consider the investigational product for approval.  Testing in humans is permitted only if a person volunteers for participation and understands the risks and benefits of participation.  It is crucial to be aware of potential side effects and other health issues that may be the result of an investigational product.  Clinical research allows you to gain access to new or current treatments and receive expert medical care with drugs that are not yet released to market. Your participation contributes to medical treatment advances for many generations to come. Volunteering participants are protected by the International Review Board (IRB) that oversees the volunteer, advocate for the patient (you), the physician, and staff that are conducting the trial. Patients may receive compensation for time and travel. 


Who Can Be in a Research Study?
Each clinical research trial has unique enrollment criteria for its potential subjects. Subjects must meet specific criteria to be eligible for study participation.  Enrollment criteria can include age, gender, disease, severity of disease, previous treatment history, and other underlying medical conditions. Many patients think that their skin is not severe enough or that they may not qualify but you will never know unless you call.

What Can I Expect As A Trial Patient?
Being involved in a clinical trial is a great experience for patients. You get to be an active part of science and are able to treat your disease at the same time. We schedule appointments just like your normal doctor's office and are always available by phone or email with any questions or concerns you may have. Sometimes we may ask you to take home a cell phone like device to answer daily questions or we may ask you to answer questionnaires in your visit.
