Skin Condition Clinical Trials

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

Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema)

Pediatric Dupilumab Study (6mo to 6 yrs old)
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of the investigational drug in children from 6 months to 6 years of age who have been diagnosed with atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema.

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.

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 Impact of Pediatric Skin Disorders: The "Big" Study
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.

Ixekizumab in the Treatment of Pityriasis Rubra Pilaris (PRP)
The purpose of this study is to determine whether ixekizumab provides clinical improvement for adult subjects with pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP).

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether a topical medication applied to the skin wart is more effective than cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen to treat common warts in subjects ages 3-65 years.
