Psoriasis Study Enrolling

Plaque psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder in which skin cells build up and form scales and itchy, dry patches. For those who are tired of messy creams and invasive needles, consider the LATITUDE Psoriasis Studies.
These studies are evaluating an investigational oral pill to see if it can reduce psoriasis symptoms.
Health insurance is not required to participate.

Those who qualify may receive:

  • Study-related treatment at no cost
  • Study-related care from local study doctors and specialists
  • Reimbursement for time and travel

You may qualify to participate if you:

  • Are 18 years or older in age.
  • Have received a diagnosis of chronic plaque psoriasis at least 6 months ago.
  • Have plaque psoriasis covering at least 10% of your body surface area (BSA).

BSA is determined by measuring the number of handprints present with plaque psoriasis. A handprint includes the palm and the fingers. One handprint is approximately 1% of the body surface area. Since this study requires a BSA of at least 10%, this means at least 10 handprints.

Additional requirements to qualify for this study will apply. A member of the study team will discuss these with you.

What is a clinical research study?

A clinical research study tests the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication in human volunteers. Every new medication must be tested in this way before it can be used by the public. People who participate in these studies play a crucial role in helping doctors and researchers learn more about how to treat illnesses in the future.
