Advanced Clinical Care, a Massachusetts clinical trial center, is recruiting patients for two plaque psoriasis clinical trials. Advanced Clinical Care previously has run and completed trials involving rheumatic disease. With these trials the researchers will gain knowledge about the two treatment medications for people suffering with plaque psoriasis. Both trials run for five years, providing patients free care and free medication for the entire duration of the study.
"With severe psoriasis, the patient suffers from itchy and bleeding skin, which is often over an extensive area,” said Mary Coughlin, R.N., co-founder of Advanced Clinical Care.
Through the two clinical trials, doctors and researchers hope to learn more about the safety and effectiveness of the treatment medications when given to patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. The results of the studies will provide doctors with more information about the two treatment plans.
