RESEARCH

The physicians of Dermatology Specialists are actively involved in conducting clinical research. This allows us the opportunity to be involved in the development of medications and devices that are emerging for a variety of dermatologic conditions. Through clinical trials we can provide patients with the most current thoughts and therapies available and be able to closely monitor each individual’s progress and safety.

Our Physicians work with Registered Nurses dedicated solely to research and interacting with patients that are participating in a clinical trial.

Should you participate in research? The answer to that question is very individualized. Participation is strictly voluntary. Most people who volunteer do so for any of the following reasons, to help provide insight into the condition being studied for their benefit and the benefit of others, to receive medical care and medications free of charge, or to find a treatment that is better than what they are currently using. Volunteers are compensated for their time and travel for study visits. Volunteers can withdraw at any time.

Not all patients who want to participate in a clinical trial are allowed to do so. The doctor conducting the trial will not allow someone to participate if their health history indicates that it is unsafe for them or if the medication or device being studied cannot be adequately evaluated in that individual due to other health problems or medications that they are on.

The most common conditions for dermatology research are psoriasis, acne, atopic dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, and rosacea as well as hand dermatitis. However, almost all dermatologic skin conditions undergo research at various times. So, please contact us if you wish to discuss the possibility of participating in a trial or to inquire about research for a particular condition.

Research nurses may be reached at 502.583.7546 extension 152. Please leave a message if we are unable to answer. Your call will be returned as soon as possible.
