Current Dermatology Clinical Trials

Study: Acne

Cutera Acne - IRB approved ad

Purpose: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the investigational Cutera® 1726 nm laser system (also referred to as ‘Alice’) for the treatment of mild to severe acne vulgaris. Subjects will receive three 1726 nm laser treatments at 3 week intervals. Follow-up visits will occur at approximately 10 days post each treatment (via phone) and at 4-, 12-, 26- and 52-weeks post-final treatment.

Qualifications:

  • Female and male subjects, ages 16 to 60 years
  • Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV with mild, moderate, or severe acne vulgaris

Duration: Approx. 18 months
Location: Hackensack, NJ
Compensation: $325
To participate contact Diana Aranzazu, research@schweigerderm.com, 201-951-0701


Study: Vitiligo Trial

Purpose: Vitiligo is a skin condition in which there is a loss of color (referred to as “depigmentation”) from areas of skin. This results in uneven white patches that have no pigment, but the skin feels like normal. The purpose of the study you are being asked to participate in is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the RECELL® Device when used for repigmentation of stable vitiligo. Stable vitiligo means that the areas affected by loss of pigment have been unchanged for at least the last 12 months. The study will evaluate the effect of using RECELL for repigmentation.

Qualifications:

  • Male and Females, 18 years or older
  • Diagnosed with Focal, segmental or generalized (i.e., nonsegmental) vitiligo photographically documented as stable (No new lesions within the previous 12 months)

Duration: Approx. 52 weeks
Location: Hackensack, NJ
Compensation: If all visits are kept, up to $1350 will be paid to the patient *once all visits are completed*

Study: Alopecia Areata

Purpose: This research study will look at two different doses of CTP-543 compared to placebo (looks like the study drug, but does not contain active ingredients) when given to research subjects with alopecia areata (sudden hair loss) twice-daily for 24 weeks. The main purpose is to determine if CTP-543 will result in hair regrowth, and to see if taking CTP-543 is safe.

Qualifications:

  • Male and Females, ages 18 to 65 inclusive
  • Definitive diagnosis of alopecia areata with a current episode of scalp hair loss lasting at least 6 months and not exceeding 10 years at the time of Screening. Total disease duration greater than 10 years is permitted.
  • At least 50% scalp hair loss, as defined by a SALT score ≥50, at Screening and Baseline.

Duration: Approx. 28 weeks
Location: Hackensack, NJ
Compensation: If all visits are kept, up to $500 will be paid to the patient *once all visits are completed*
