Skin Condition Clinical Trials
OHSU Department of Dermatology's Clinical Research Team provides expertise in clinical research. We offer many different clinical trials throughout the year throughout various skin conditions. Most trials have a limited number of spots or time allowed to enroll patients.
Currently Enrolling Trials
Pediatric Dupilumab Study (6 yrs to 12 yrs old)
The purpose of this study is to find out how effective and safe dupilumab (the investigational drug) with topical corticosteroids is for children ≥ 6 years to <12 years old with severe atopic dermatitis
Adult Eczema Study (18yrs +)
This study is being done to see how safe baricitinib is and how well it might work to help people with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (eczema).
Eczema Study (12yrs +)
The purpose of this study is to compare effects of PF-04965842 (the study drug) with a placebo to find out which is better for treating atopic dermatitis for persons with moderate to severe eczema over the age of 12.
Adult Eczema Study (18 yrs to 65 yrs)
The purpose of this study is to determine how study drug dupilumab affects the amount of bacteria on the skin, the skin's water loss and the immune system for subjects with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis.
Eczema Study (3yrs to 85yrs)
The purpose of this study is to determine why some individuals with atopic dermatitis are at higher risk for recurrent skin infections with herpes simplex virus (HSV).
Moderate-to-Severe Plaque Psoriasis Trial (18 years+)
The purpose of this study is to learn more about the efficacy a new drug called mirikizumab for adult patients with plaque psoriasis.
War on Melanoma: Enlisting a cohort of melanoma survivors and their families
The purpose of this data repository, called the Melanoma Community Registry, is to develop a prospective cohort of melanoma patients, family members and friends (controls). This registry will serve as a data repository for future IRB-approved research and thus will collect, store and share data with melanoma researchers for an indeterminate period of time. In addition, our repository will contain identifying codes/numbers that are links to data/samples in other relevant databases. Additionally, it is intended to deliver a ready-to-act group of volunteers to participate in the War on Melanoma campaign to include such things as attending educational symposiums and using their networks to increase awareness of the issue. There is no existing nationwide registry for melanoma research. As patient-centered research advances, a resource like this is needed and can serve as a model.
The goal of this study is to understand the severity and the type of stigma experienced across different kinds of skin conditions and therefore help identify methods of intervention to lessen the impact of skin disorders.
