Clinical trials are your opportunity to receive the benefits of new medications and treatments before they’re commercially available. At Lumos Dermatology® in New York City’s Flatiron District in Manhattan, the team of board-certified dermatologists collaborates with TrialSpark and other dermatology practices on patients with complex dermatology issues. The teams work together to allow patients to try new treatment methods and products for conditions that are often challenging to treat. To learn more about participating in clinical trials, contact Lumos Dermatology® by phone or online today.
Clinical trials are a significant part of modern medicine. Patients participate in research studies and try out new products and treatment methods before they’re available to the general public. This helps medical researchers gather important data about new methods and products and gives patients the benefits of new treatments at no cost.
Lumos Dermatology® partners with TrialSpark for clinical trials for conditions such as:
If you suffer from any of these conditions, and many others, you may be eligible to participate in a clinical trial and receive cutting-edge treatments.
If you have a hard-to-treat condition, chronic problem, or congenital skin disease, you may be a good candidate for participation in a dermatology clinical trial. Dermatological clinical trials are closely regulated by the FDA to ensure your safety and the reliability of the products and treatments you’re testing.
If you do want to participate in a clinical trial, your board-certified dermatologist first evaluates your condition, overall health, and health history to determine if you’re a good candidate.
Clinical trials allow you access to innovative treatments and medications that are otherwise unavailable to the public. The team carefully selects clinical trials based on the needs of their patients, so you receive expert care at no cost to you or your insurance. Additionally, when you participate in clinical trials for your skin conditions or health issues, you’re helping the medical community at large.
This type of research can also help improve treatments and products that are already on the market. For example, if you experience relief from eczema symptoms during a clinical trial but don’t like the side effects of the medication, research can help improve the treatment so it’s as effective but with fewer undesirable side effects.
Only 7% of known diseases have cures and treatments. Clinical trials allow you to become part of the research that leads to new medical breakthroughs.
