These studies are enrolling very quickly. If you or someone you know may be interested in participating please call 404-939-9220 ext. 107 or option 2 for research, so the research staff may answer any questions you have and to see if you qualify.

Clinical trials offer patients access to new and cutting edge therapeutics, which may offer benefits over existing treatment options. The study medication is free, the visits are at no cost to you and you may be provided a travel reimbursement or subject stipend for participation. The insurance appeal process can take up to 3 months or longer to approve a prescribed medication. So a short term study may be helpful or beneficial to you, while we are waiting for your insurance to approve your prescribed medication. Clinical trials can provide you alternative treatment options without added costs.

Benefits of clinical trials:

  • Examinations by a board-certified dermatologist
  • Possible treatment for usually one to five years
  • Compensation for time and travel
