What is Clinical Research?

A clinical trial, also known as, a research study is conducted to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an experimental medical device, treatment, or medication. After showing benefit in the laboratory, new treatments must be tested among small groups of people to determine the proper dose and to test safety. After a dose has been determined, the dose is tested on large groups of volunteers to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the treatment for a specific condition, such as eczema, psoriasis, or acne.

Advanced Dermatology is at the forefront of the latest medical treatments and advancements in medical skin care. For this reason, we take part in research studies at our Center for Skin Research.
