Reasons to Participate in Clinical Trials
If you have a skin condition such as actinic keratosis, rosacea, or dermatitis that isn’t responding well to treatment, then your dermatologist may recommend that you participate in a clinical trial. A clinical trial has several phases that test the efficacy and safety of a potential new medicine.
Watch this video to learn why many patients choose to join clinical trials. There is no cost for the patient to participate in a clinical trial, which can be beneficial for individuals without medical insurance or who find that their current medication is too expensive. Finally, it makes sense to consider participating in a clinical trial if available treatments have been ineffective at treating your condition.
