Do You Have Psoriasis?

Plaque psoriasis is a long-term disease of the immune system that causes red scaly patches, often with a silvery scale, to appear on the skin. Approximately 1.5 million American adults suffer from moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

These plaques may itch, be painful, and can bleed. They can appear anywhere on the body, but are most commonly found on the elbows, knees, scalp, and lower back. People with plaque psoriasis may notice that there are times when their skin worsens, then gets better.

The Deaconess Clinic Department of Dermatology is participating in a national clinical research study of an investigational drug for psoriasis. If you suffer from moderate to severe psoriasis, you may qualify to receive no-cost skin assessments by a board-certified dermatologist, study medication and compensation for time and travel. You must be at least 18 years old to participate.        

Health insurance is not required for participation
