Is Vitiligo Holding You Back?

A clinical research study may be an option for you!

Vitiligo is known to affect nearly 2% of the world’s population. Non-segmental vitiligo is characterized by a widespread depigmented patch of skin, typically occurring on both sides of the body. There is a need for potential non-segmental vitiligo clinical trials that may be able to help people with the condition.

You may be eligible to participate in the non-segmental vitiligo clinical trials if you:

  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Have been diagnosed with non-segmental Vitiligo

*Additional criteria may apply

Although there is no cure for this skin condition, Revival Research Institute is conducting a clinical trial to observe the safety and efficacy of a potential vitiligo treatment that may be able to help people with Vitiligo.

**If you are eligible to participate in research studies, you will be compensated for your time and travel. You will receive study-related care from professional and experienced doctors and nurses. Volunteers eligible for the study will receive the study-related non-segmental vitiligo medication free of cost to them and their private health insurance.

Get Started - What to Expect?

Revival Research Institute is conducting a research study to investigate the safety and efficacy of an investigational drug that may be able to help people with Non-segmental Vitiligo.

This study aims to observe how well the investigational drug is used to help people with non-segmental vitiligo. “Investigational” means that the study drug is being tested and has not been approved by the FDA (U.S. Food Drug and Administration).

The Non-segmental Vitiligo Clinical Trial is a phase 3, double-blind, placebo-controlled research study. This means that neither you nor the study doctor will know which medication you receive. You may receive the placebo drug (medication without the active ingredient of the study medication) or the study drug. You will not be able to choose the drug you receive. The medication will be assigned to you by chance, like the flip of a coin.

You will be asked personal questions related to your health and medical history. Once you fill the form above, you will be invited to our site for screening purposes; this may include blood tests and other diagnostic tests. If you are eligible to participate, the study doctor will explain everything about the research study and answer any questions you have. We encourage you to ask as many questions as you’d like before you sign the Informed Consent Form.

About Vitiligo

Potential treatment for Non-segmental Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a skin disorder in which the skin loses its color. Vitiligo causes smooth white patches to emerge on the skin called macules. If you have vitiligo in a hairy area of your body, your hair may turn white as well. Vitiligo is attributed to a lack of melanin pigment, which is produced by melanocytes.

How Vitiligo Progresses?

Vitiligo normally starts as a few little white patches that gradually spread over the body over a period of months. The larger areas can sometimes continue to enlarge and spread, although they normally stay put for years. Vitiligo most commonly affects the hands, forearms, feet, and face, but it can also affect the mucous membranes, the eyes, and the inner ears.

Types of Vitiligo

  1. Non-segmental also called bilateral or generalized vitiligo
  2. Segmental also called unilateral or localized

Problems Associated with Vitiligo

People with vitiligo may be self-conscious about their skin, which can lead to anxiety and depression. They are also more susceptible to other autoimmune diseases (e.g. hypothyroidism, diabetes, and so on), and because they lack melanocytes which makes their skin more sensitive to sunlight.

What is the cure for Non-segmental Vitiligo?

Vitiligo causes white spots that are usually permanent, though there are potential treatments for depigmentation that may help minimize their appearance. Common treatment options available are steroids creams and regimentation or light therapy. Non-segmental vitiligo clinical trials can also serve as a potential treatment for depigmentation.
