University Dermatology Trials, INC. (UDT) treats a wide variety of dermatologic disorders including acne vulgaris, atopic dermatitis (AD), psoriasis, rosacea, prurigo nodularis, tinea pedis, skin cancer, and vitiligo.
UDT is constantly conducting research studies for new investigational acne medication for people 12 years of age and older who have moderate to severe facial acne. Moderate acne is usually characterized by more than 15 inflamed pimples and numerous blackheads and whiteheads on the face. We also conduct studies for nodular acne on the face and body. Nodular acne is the large raised acne below the skin that are often painful. Qualified participants in these studies receive all study related medical care and investigational study medications at no cost throughout the study, plus compensation for time and travel.
Hidradenitis suppurativa is a condition that causes small, painful lumps to form under the skin. The lumps usually develop in areas where your skin rubs together, such as the armpits, groin, buttocks and breasts. The lumps heal slowly, recur, and can lead to tunnels under the skin and scarring. Hidradenitis suppurativa tends to start after puberty. It can persist for many years and worsen over time, with serious effects on your daily life and emotional well-being. Combined medical and surgical therapy can help manage the disease and prevent complications.
Rosacea is a chronic but treatable skin condition that primarily affects the central face, and is often characterized by flare-ups and remissions. Although rosacea may develop in many ways and at any age, patient surveys indicate that it typically begins any time after age 30 as flushing or redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead that may come and go. Studies have shown that over time the redness tends to become ruddier and more persistent, and visible blood vessels may appear. Left untreated, inflammatory bumps and pimples often develop, and in severe cases — particularly in men — the nose may grow swollen and bumpy from excess tissue. In as many as 50 percent of patients the eyes are also affected, feeling irritated and appearing watery or bloodshot.
Aesthetic clinical trials are essential in testing new products and devices to find out if they will be truly effective in helping clients to improve their appearance in some way. Whether they help a person to have more youthful skin or they eliminate cellulite, there are many practical applications for aesthetic clinical trials. They can change lives. If you qualify to be a part of a trial, you will be playing a role in finding a product or device that will help people to feel good about themselves.
Itching for relief?
If you’ve been diagnosed with prurigo nodularis, our dermatology research study might be an option for you. We are conducting a research study on an investigational oral medication for people with severe itching from prurigo nodularis. This study will look at the safety and efficacy of the study medication and will observe the study medication on itch-related quality of life and sleep quality.
There are many types of skin cancer, each of which can look different on the skin. This picture gallery contains some examples of the more common types of skin cancer, as well as some other non-cancerous types of skin growths. But skin cancers can look different from these examples. This is why it’s important to see a doctor if you have any lumps, bumps, spots, sores, or other marks on your skin that are new or changing, or that worry you for any other reason.
Do you have Eczema?
Atopic Dermatitis commonly known as eczema, can cause itchy, red patches of skin. To help you and your loved ones, expert staff are conducting multiple phase 2 and phase 3 research studies on investigational medication that may help people suffering from atopic dermatitis.
Psoriasis can affect more than just your skin.
If you’re suffering from plaque psoriasis, managing its symptoms can be frustrating. It’s characterized by itchy, red scales that form on the hands, face, elbows as well as other parts of the body. At UDT, our experienced research staff are conducting multiple clinical researches in dermatology to evaluate the safety and efficacy of investigational medications that may be able to help people suffering from moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
Vitiligo is a disease that causes loss of skin color in patches. The discolored areas usually get bigger with time. The condition can affect the skin on any part of the body. It can also affect hair and the inside of the mouth.
Normally, the color of hair and skin is determined by melanin. Vitiligo occurs when cells that produce melanin die or stop functioning. Vitiligo affects people of all skin types, but it may be more noticeable in people with brown or Black skin. The condition is not life-threatening or contagious. It can be stressful or make you feel bad about yourself.
Treatment for vitiligo may restore color to the affected skin. But it doesn't prevent continued loss of skin color or a recurrence.
