Is Vitiligo Holding You Back?

Know all your options!

A clinical research study may be an option for you!
Vitiligo is known to affect about 1% of the world’s population. Vitiligo causes the skin to lose its pigment cells which ultimately leads to discolored patches of skin. There is a need for potential vitiligo treatments that may be able to help people with the condition.

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

Are 18 years of age or older
Have been diagnosed with non-segmental Vitiligo
Have not participated in any research study or consumed any investigational medication in the last 30 days

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 who are eligible for the study will receive the study-related vitiligo treatment free of cost to them and their private health insurance.

About the Study

Revival Research Institute is conducting a phase II trial to assess the study drug’s safety and efficacy in people with Non Segmental Vitiligo. The potential vitiligo treatment will be given to around 320 participants in one of the four treatment groups. Each subject’s involvement will last for 64 weeks, during which time several assessments (blood tests, ECGs, and vital signs) will be maintained to keep check on any adverse side effects. If you are over the age of 18 and have been diagnosed with non-segmental vitiligo, this could be a good option for you.

The study drug and study-related care is free of charge for volunteers who are eligible for the study. If you qualify, you will receive a call from someone on our research staff. You may be asked to share your personal information regarding your complete medical history, overall health and any medications you take.

*All volunteers who may be eligible for the research study will receive the study drug and study-related care, free of cost. And you may be compensated for your time and travel. No insurance is required to participate

Get Started - What to Expect?

Revival Research Institute is conducting a research study to investigate the safety and efficacy of a herbally-based investigational drug that may be able to help people with Vitiligo. This study is to observe how well the investigational drug is used to treat people with Vitiligo. “Investigational” means that the study drug is being tested and has not been approved by the FDA (U.S. Food Drug and Administration).

This is a phase 2, double-blind, placebo controlled research study. This means that neither you nor the study doctor will know which medication. You may receive the placebo drug (sugar pills or 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, you will be invited onto 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

vitiligo study

Vitiligo is a skin disorder in which the skin loses its colour. It 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. It 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. It is 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 this condition 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 skin cells, their skin is more sensitive to sunlight.
