5 easy steps towards participating

 

What is a clinical study?

In clinical studies, new treatments are scientifically tested, to clarify if the new medication is better, more effective or safer than current available treatment for a certain skin disease.

In a clinical study, you might benefit from receiving a new more efficient treatment for your skin condition. Other times you receive the current standard care for your skin condition or placebo (i.e. a pill or injection without medication).

This method helps determine whether the tested medication is effective for your skin condition, offers any benefits compared to existing treatments, or causes unexpected side effects. Expert medical care is available to you during the entire study.
