Is Plaque Psoriasis impacting your life?

Consider a research study testing an investigational topical cream

Why Participate?

The investigational topical cream being tested will be applied to the skin. The knowledge gained from this study may help others with plaque psoriasis in the future. Eligible participants will receive study related tests at no cost.

The clinical research team will discuss all study risks with you and answer any additional questions you may have.

About the Study

This study will test an investigational topical cream to see how it effects the signs and symptoms of mild or moderate plaque psoriasis. It will also measure how much of the investigational topical cream the blood absorbs and how well it is tolerated.

The investigational topical cream is designed to work with the immune system to reduce skin swelling.

During the 12-week treatment period, you will be asked to apply the investigational topical cream either once or twice per day. You will have a 75% chance of receiving the investigational topical cream and a 25% chance of receiving the vehicle (placebo) cream. The vehicle (placebo) cream in this study will be a cream which looks like the investigational topical cream, but does not contain any active ingredients.

If you agree to participate and then change your mind for any reason, you are able to stop at any time.

How to Participate

If you are interested in participating, you will go through a screening to determine your eligibility. If you qualify and choose to participate, you will be asked to provide blood or urine samples. If you are enrolled, the screening period may last anywhere from 1 to 6 weeks. The treatment period for the investigational topical cream will last 12 weeks with approximately a 4 week follow-up period. There will be approximately 11 visits to the study site.

The following is a list of some of the assessments that will be conducted upon enrollment in this study:

  • A review of your medical history including your psoriasis
  • Questions about previous and current treatments for plaque psoriasis taken
  • A complete physical examination

You will also be required to not eat or drink anything (apart from water) for 8-10 hours before the first day of the study.
