CLINICAL RESEARCH FOR MODERATE/SEVERE PSORIASIS -
We currently have TWO clinical trials enrolling for moderate to severe psoriasis. Come in to discuss both with the dermatologist and see which is the best fit for you.
Study #1: Two already FDA approved drugs for psoriasis are going head-to-head in order to figure out which one clears skin faster. Have you ever wanted to try Taltz or Tremfya but the high cost of the medication kept you away? Now is your chance to get the treatment at no cost. (Those who qualify and enroll will receive either Taltz or Tremfya - no placebo.)
Study #2: An investigational medication for psoriasis (Mirikizumab) is being tested against a treatment that is already commercially available (Cosentyx). This clinical trial is long-term, lasting 68 weeks! The chance of receiving a placebo in this trial is 1/13.
Those who enroll will be compensated for time and travel. Give us a call today at (760) 203-3839 x102 or fill out a contact form by clicking the button below.
CLINICAL RESEARCH FOR MILD PSORIASIS -
A few patches of psoriasis can have a large impact on your life. If you’re living with mild psoriasis, you may be a good fit for our newest study! Here are the details:
This clinical trial aims to create a generic version of Enstilar, a foam medication used to treat plaque psoriasis. Those who enroll will randomly receive one of the following: Enstilar, the investigational foam or a placebo.
To qualify, participants will need to have at least 5% of their body affected by plaque psoriasis. (The face, groin and underarm areas are not included. ) This study requires just 3 visits to our office in Encinitas over a 28 day period.

CLINICAL RESEARCH FOR COMMON WARTS -
Warts are an infection on the outermost layer of the skin that is usually caused by contact with some type of virus - and once you get a wart, it can be extremely hard to get rid of! If you’re dealing with one or more warts, this may be the clinical trial for you.
Over a 5 month period, participants will be applying a topical solution directly to the growth to test the product’s ability to effectively minimize the wart. (This clinical trial is placebo controlled with 50% receiving the active medication and 50% receiving a placebo.)
