Overview

Synexus is looking for volunteers who suffer from chronic plaque psoriasis.

Psoriasis is a common inflammatory skin condition affecting up to 1.8 million people in the UK.

Psoriasis can occur on any part of the body and it affects men and women equally. 77% of those affected by psoriasis describe it as a ‘problem’ or ‘significant problem’ impacting their quality of life, which includes missing work and work performance. It has also been linked to depression and anxiety.

We need your help to advance world medicine and are looking for volunteers to take part in clinical trials that try to reduce psoriasis itchiness, pain and scaling to improve skin-related quality of life/ to see how effective investigational medicines are in treating chronic plaque psoriasis.

We are currently recruiting at the following locations

All Synexus trials are approved by an independent ethics committee.

Everything you need to know

Psoriasis is a skin disease in which the skin cells grow faster than normal. This abnormal growth causes a build-up of cells on the surface of the skin. Red, raised patches of skin that are covered with silver-coloured scales form on your skin.

85% of people with psoriasis feel annoyed with their disease and is often the result of their quality of life being affected such as limitations to daily activities.

As one of the largest and most recognised clinical trial organisations in the world, Synexus provides a friendly relaxed environment where you have the opportunity to help others and maybe also yourself. A clinical trial offers an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.
