This study is for people who have had moderate to severe atopic dermatitis, or eczema, for at least one year, have had little response to topical treatments, and have at least 10% of their body surface area involved with eczema. The study medication is administered as an injection every two weeks for one year.  There is a placebo in the study – a 25% chance for the first 16 weeks - and then all subjects are placed on the real study medication for the remaining 36 weeks. Compensation will be provided for time and travel expenses.


This a phase 3 (final phase) study of an oral medication to treat eczema.  Once this study is completed, the data will be sent to the FDA to review and potentially approve this product.  It compares two doses of the medication against a placebo and runs for 3 months.  At the end of 3 months, participants will be offered an opportunity to receive the actual medication for an additional TWO YEARS.  Like always, all visits, tests and medications are provided without charge and payments are made to you for each visit.

Clinical Research Study for Alopecia Areata Treatment

This is a study for patients who have had alopecia areata for at least 6 months.  The study is comparing two strengths of a topical solution which slows down the specific part of the immune system that may be overactive in the scalp of patients with alopecia areata.  The study is about 4 months long and if selected, you would be randomly assigned the lower strength solution, the higher strength solution or a placebo solution to apply to the scalp twice a day.  There are 8 visits to the clinic over the course of 4 months.  In order to qualify, you must at least 1/3rd of your scalp affected by alopecia areata.  Compensation for time and travel is provided at $75 per visit.


This is a study for patients who have a few stubborn psoriasis plaques.  The treatment uses light treatments (that you do at home) and patches attached to the psoriasis areas.  No systemic medications are used.  There are 5 treatment visits over about 6 weeks then several follow up visits in the months afterward.  Compensation for your time and travel costs are provided at $50 per visit. ONLY A FEW POSITIONS LEFT, CALL NOW TO RESERVE A SPOT!

Clinical Research Study for Scalp Psoriasis

For those of you who are most bothered by psoriasis in your scalp, we have a study starting soon.  We are comparing an already FDA-approved product to a new generic version of the medication and to a placebo.  To qualify, you must have psoriasis of your scalp and be willing to use only the medication we provide for your scalp.  There are only three visits to the office and 6 out of every 7 patients who enroll will receive an active medication.  As usual, compensation will be provided for each visit.

Coming Soon - A Treatment for Facial Vitiligo

If you have this difficult to treat condition on your face, sign up today to get an early opportunity to participate.  The treatment is a topical janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor that may offer many of the benefits of this category while reducing the risks by being a topically applied product instead of a oral medication.
