At Stamford Therapeutics, we believe in using clinical trials to improve tomorrow, so today, we want to talk about how the clinical trials we are conducting for plaque psoriasis help with adding treatment options to the existing market.

Plaque psoriasis is the most common form of psoriasis, and about 80-90% of people who have psoriasis experience plaques.

Plaques are raised, red patches covered in a silvery build up. They can appear on the scalp, knees, elbows, or lower back. There is no cure for plaque psoriasis, but the condition can be treated with a variety of topical, oral, or injectable medications, or phototherapy to name a few. No single treatment works for everyone, so those diagnosed will work closely with their doctor to find the most effective treatment options available for their specific needs.

How Clinical Trials Impact Treatment Options

Clinical studies help advance treatment options for those who are diagnosed with plaque psoriasis (and other conditions as well).  Imagine a treatment that puts psoriasis into remission, or even cures it! This is why what we do at STC, is so important. Our research team works with volunteers like you who want to be a part of finding more effective treatments for this condition and more. Volunteers help us see whether the treatment option being studied is safe and effective by recording and gathering data from their response to the treatment.

Every volunteer is under the care of a doctor for the entire study, and your health and safety are top priority. Read more on the volunteer and clinical study process HERE.

How You Can Help

If you have been diagnosed with plaque psoriasis and are interested in exploring new options options, clinical studies may be right for you. Studies are 100% voluntary through 100% of the timeline within a study. Qualified participants may receive compensation for time and travel.

Since 1994, we have played a part in the advancement of safe and new treatment options for a variety of indications and diseases. If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with plaque psoriasis, we are currently conducting a study for a new investigational medication. Click HERE to learn more.
