Struggling with Psoriasis?

A clinical research study may be for the millions of adults suffering.

Plaque psoriasis is a common skin condition that causes red, scaly, and itchy patches on the skin to appear. These patches of raised skin most commonly occur on the scalp (scalp psoriasis), elbows, and knees. If you’ve been diagnosed with this condition, you may be eligible to participate in a research study that may be able to help you find relief from your condition.

You may be eligible to participate in the research study if you:

  • Are 18 years or older
  • Have been diagnosed with plaque psoriasis for more than 6 months
  • Have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis

We’re conducting a phase 2 clinical trial to see how well the study drug works as a plaque psoriasis treatment and to observe its safety and efficacy.
*There is no cost to you or your private medical insurance to participate in this clinical research trial. You will be monetarily compensated for your time and travel. And all participants receive study-related care from doctors & health care professionals, free of cost.
*For volunteers interested in the study, we invite you to fill the online form. Someone from our study staff will give you a call to see if you are eligible for the research study.
*This is a double-blind, placebo-controlled research study which means that there is a 50% chance that you may either receive the study drug or the placebo if you qualify. 
*Volunteering for any of Revival Research Institute’s clinical trials is free of cost to you and your private health insurance.

About Psoriasis Study

The study is a phase 2, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. This means that you may either receive the study drug or a placebo drug. A placebo is a medication but without the active ingredient. Anyone interested in participating in a research study will receive study-related care, from expert healthcare professionals including doctors and nurses. If you decide to participate in this research study, the study doctor will discuss with you in detail about the study and what will be expected of you including completing the study visits and the e-Diary that may be provided to you and, to be completely honest about your past and current medical history.

Males and females above the age of 18 years with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis are eligible to volunteer in this research study. To test out the tolerability and the safety of potential psoriasis treatment, we will monitor your condition and collect information on any adverse events, clinical laboratory results, ECG findings, and vital signs throughout the study period.

*All qualified volunteers who decide to participate in the study are eligible for a stipend that they may receive for their time and travel expenses. Your participation is free of cost and is completely voluntary. This means that you could choose to leave at any time. And no insurance is required to participate

Get Started - What to Expect?

If you suffer from plaque psoriasis and want to participate in a research study, fill out the form above. Someone from the research staff will call you and see if you can qualify for the study. If you are eligible, you may be invited to the nearest site’s location to complete the screening process. You will be asked to sign an Informed Consent form. Before signing the form, the study doctor will clearly explain to you everything about the study, the risks and benefits of the study psoriasis treatment, details about the study visits, and everything that may be expected of you. During this time, we encourage every volunteer to ask as many questions as they’d like and to only sign the Informed Consent Form once they are satisfied with all the information.

Participation in the study is completely voluntary and participants can leave at any time. Volunteers will receive stipends for every visit they complete to the time and will be compensated for their time and travel. We are conducting clinical trials on a potential psoriasis treatment or study drug, which means that it is being tested and has not been approved by the FDA for use anywhere other than in studies like this one.

About Plaque Psoriasis

Psoriasis treatment

Plaque psoriasis is an inflammatory skin condition that is characterized by raised, itchy, red, and scaly skin covered with white or silver scales. The plaques occur due to the skin cells multiplying at a faster rate which causes raised buildups that can be itchy and painful. It most commonly occurs on the elbows, knees, and scalp but it can also appear anywhere else on the body. For many people with the condition, scalp psoriasis is very common. It causes plaques of scales or crust to develop on the scalp. This condition is not contagious and cannot be transferred through touch. However, it can be passed down in families through genetics.

Causes of Psoriasis

There is a combination of factors that could lead to this skin condition, although there is no exact cause. There are certain triggers that cause the immune system to go into overdrive which ultimately leads to the skin multiplying quicker. Normally, the skin cells are replaced every 10 to 30 days but with this skin condition, the cells are replaced every 3 to 4 days. This causes the old cells to build up as the new cells replace them which is why we see silver or white scales around the red patches.

Some of the most common triggers that can cause psoriasis flare-ups are:

  •  Cuts, scrapes, or injuries
  •  Emotional Stress
  •  Medications like blood pressure medicines, antimalarial drugs, lithium,
  • NSAIDs, etc.
  • Strep infections

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder that causes red, itchy, and scaly patches to appear on one’s skin. For people with this condition, the skin cells tend to multiply 10 times faster than normal. There is no cure for this condition. However, the condition tends to flare in cycles and may heal and return throughout a person’s life. Certain psoriasis medication or treatments may be able to help people manage their symptoms or flare-ups.

What does Psoriasis look like?

It can appear as red, thick, scaly, and raised skin, covered by white or scales. It most commonly affects the areas of the knees, elbows, and scalp. Scalp psoriasis is also very common and can be uncomfortable. Hands are also a very sensitive area and psoriasis on hands is just as common. Although, it can occur on any part of the body. 

What causes Psoriasis?

One of the most common causes of this skin condition is when the immune system starts attacking the skin cells. If you’re sick or fighting off an infection, your immune system goes into overdrive and can cause flare-ups. There may be other causes which include genetic, or certain triggers like stress, injury, or medications that are known to induce the condition.

How to cure Psoriasis permanently?

Psoriasis medications or treatments that may help manage the symptoms include steroid creams, salicylic acid, immunosuppressant, or phototherapy. There is a need for novel therapies when it comes to this skin condition as it affects millions of people all over the world.

Revival Research Institute is conducting clinical trials to study the safety and efficacy of an experimental drug that may be able to help people with their psoriasis symptoms. If none of the current treatment options are working out for you, you might want to consider other options like a research study that might be able to help you or your loved ones.

Will I receive the study drug?

This is a double-blind, placebo-controlled research study. It means that you could either receive the study drug or the placebo (a medication with no active ingredient). There is a 50% chance that you may either receive the study drug or the placebo. The study doctor or the lead investigator will not know which drug you’ve received.

Will I be cured at the end of the research study?

The Psoriasis Clinical Trials are being conducted to study the safety, effectiveness, and tolerability of the experimental drug in human beings. There is no known cure for this condition however, with the study drug, we are trying to observe how well it can help treat psoriasis symptoms.
