Atopic dermatitis (also known as eczema) is a type of skin inflammation known for causing itchy, swollen, dry and cracked skin. Untreated, these spots of skin may become infected, and many people with atopic dermatitis can develop hay fever or asthma over time.
Do you or a loved one experience Atopic Dermatitis?
This clinical research study is looking at the safety and effectiveness of an investigational treatment option for people with moderate atopic dermatitis (AD).
Would you like to take part? Would you like a friend or family member to take part?
As a volunteer in a research study, they will receive personal medical care from the study doctor and regular follow up on their AD to monitor the effectiveness of the care they will receive. The results of this research will be used to find out if the experimental treatment being studied will be of benefit to others with AD or not, and whether or not it will be made widely available to all Canadians with AD. Study volunteers are an important part of moving medical care forward.
