Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is not just a cosmetic disease.

Eczema is a chronic skin condition that causes patches of red, itchy, dry skin to appear on various parts of the body.

Moderate or severe eczema can cause intense pain, itchiness, and skin cracking. Eczema can flare periodically, especially when exposed to certain triggers such as cold or dry air and contact with irritants, including rough fabrics and chemicals such as perfumes or dyes.

Moderate to severe eczema can interfere with everyday life, causing absences from school and missed social activities. And, eczema patches on visible areas of the body, such as the face, neck, and hands may cause embarrassment.

What are clinical trials?

Clinical trials are medical research studies that test investigational drugs and treatments.

People may not give much thought to clinical research, but everything from aspirin to chemotherapy has been carefully tested before being prescribed by your doctor.

Clinical trials need human volunteers, who participate under the supervision of a doctor and/or health professionals. As the trial goes on, the doctors gather more and more information about the drug or treatment under investigation. It is only through clinical trials that we learn if drugs and treatments are both effective and safe.

COVID-19 update — we remain open.

For the safety of both staff and patients, we require that our research sites are COVID-19 SMART facilities. That means they use best practices to reduce virus exposure and are dedicated to ensuring they remain open and available for the research of investigational medications.

COVID-19 SMART steps we are taking to ensure safety include:

  • Greatly increased availability of video office visits
  • Ensuring social distancing measures are taken in all waiting areas
  • Continuing the practice of cleaning and disinfecting exams rooms thoroughly between every patient visit
  • Appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for all staff members at our health clinics

Take the next step to see if your child qualifies for local clinical trials for people with eczema.
