No health insurance is required to participate. You or your child will receive all study-related care from a specialist physician at no cost. The study will include visits to a study clinic in your location.
What happens if I sign up? We will match you or your child to a study clinic location in your area that needs volunteers between the ages of 12 and 17 with Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis) or notify you when one becomes available. The study team will then contact you, and you or your child may have the opportunity to participate if qualified.
If you think you or your child might like to participate in the Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis) Studies or you would like more information, please complete the information below so we can confirm if you or your child may qualify and can contact you about the study. Keep in mind that participation is entirely voluntary. If you or your child do decide to take part in the study, you are free to change your mind about participating at any time.
Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis) is a chronic condition that makes the skin red and itchy. Atopic Dermatitis (or Eczema) tends to be more common in children, but people of any age are susceptible to this condition.1
There is no cure. Still, there are numerous treatment options available such as topical creams or ointments. There are other self-care tips that one can use to combat the symptoms, such as keeping the skin moisturized and avoiding harsh soaps and creams.
Symptoms to look out for are:
A Clinical Research Study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps to answer important questions about an investigational drug – these may include how well an investigational study drug works for a certain condition. All medications must be tested in Clinical Research Studies before they can be approved and prescribed to patients.
Participation in the Eczema Studies will involve visits to a study clinic near your home.
Those who qualify will receive either the investigational drug or a placebo, as well as all study-related medical exams and laboratory tests, all at no cost. Compensation for travel may also be available.
In the Eczema Studies, participants will be randomly assigned to a study group. You or your child will receive either the investigational drug or a placebo, depending on the assigned study group. Neither you, your child nor the study team will know which study group the participant is assigned, but in the case of an emergency, the study doctor can quickly find out.
Volunteers who qualify to take part in the study may receive compensation for study-related travel. Please discuss this with the study team when they contact you.
There is no cost to participate in the Eczema Studies. If you or your child qualify, all study-related visits, tests, care, and study drug will be provided at no cost. If you or your child decide to take part, all study-related care will be provided by a team of experienced doctors and nurses.
The research team will be able to explain more about what the Eczema Studies will involve, and it is up to you or your child to decide if you want to take part. Participation in this study is voluntary. Whether or not you or your child decide to participate in this study will not affect current or future relationships with your doctors. If you decide to participate, you or your child are free to withdraw at any time without affecting those relationships or the care you or your child receive.
We match you or your child to a study clinic within a close travel distance from your home. If we are not running the study in your area currently, with your permission, we will keep your information in our database and reach out once a study clinic in your area becomes available. If at any time you decide you or your child no longer want to participate in the study, you can opt-out, and we will delete your information.
