Skin Condition Clinical Trials

Clinical trials

OHSU Department of Dermatology's Clinical Research Team provides expertise in clinical research. We offer many different clinical  trials throughout the year throughout various skin conditions. Most trials have a limited number of spots or time allowed to enroll patients.

Currently Enrolling Trials

Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema)

Adult Eczema Study (18yrs +)
This study is being done to see how safe baricitinib is and how well it might work to help people with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (eczema).

Adult Eczema Study (18 yrs +)
This study is to assess the efficacy of four dose regimens of KHK4083 compared to placebo as measured by the change from baseline. In addition to evaluate the safety of multiple injections of KHK4083 in subjects with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis.

Eczema Study (12 yrs +)
The purpose of this study is to compare effects of PF-04965842 (the study drug) with a placebo to find out which is better for treating atopic dermatitis for persons with moderate to severe eczema over the age of 12.

Adult Eczema Study (18 yrs to 65 yrs)
The purpose of this study is to determine how study drug dupilumab affects the amount of bacteria on the skin, the skin's water loss and the immune system for subjects with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis.

Eczema Study (3 yrs to 85 yrs)
The purpose of this study is to determine why some individuals with atopic dermatitis are at higher risk for recurrent skin infections with herpes simplex virus (HSV).

Pediatric Eczema Study (6 yrs to 12 yrs)
This study is to find out how effective and safe dupilumab (the investigational drug) with topical corticosteroids is in people suffering from atopic dermatitis.

War on Melanoma: Enlisting a cohort of melanoma survivors and their families
The purpose of this data repository, called the Melanoma Community Registry, is to develop a prospective cohort of melanoma patients, family members and friends (controls). This registry will serve as a data repository for future IRB-approved research and thus will collect, store and share data with melanoma researchers for an indeterminate period of time. In addition, our repository will contain identifying codes/numbers that are links to data/samples in other relevant databases. Additionally, it is intended to deliver a ready-to-act group of volunteers to participate in the War on Melanoma campaign to include such things as attending educational symposiums and using their networks to increase awareness of the issue. There is no existing nationwide registry for melanoma research. As patient-centered research advances, a resource like this is needed and can serve as a model.


The Impact of Pediatric Skin Disorders: The "Big" Study
The goal of this study is to understand the severity and the type of stigma experienced across different kinds of skin conditions and therefore help identify methods of intervention to lessen the impact of skin disorders.

Ixekizumab in the Treatment of Pityriasis Rubra Pilaris (PRP)
The purpose of this study is to determine whether ixekizumab provides clinical improvement for adult subjects with pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP).

Patidegib in Reduction of Basal Cell Carcinomas (BCCS) Disease Burden in Subjects with Basal Cell Nevus Syndrome.
The purpose of this study is to find out if patidegib topic gel (referred to as the study gel) is beneficial and safe in reducing Basal Cell Carcinomas (BCC) in people with Basal Cell Nevus Syndrome (BCNS).

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether a topical medication applied to the skin wart is more effective than cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen to treat common warts in subjects ages 3-65 years.

The purpose of this study is to learn more about Dermatomyositis (DM). In this study, we will learn about a drug called PF-06823859. PF-06823859 will be called “the study drug”. We want to learn: If the study drug is better at treating DM than the placebo (A placebo looks like the study drug but does not contain any active drug.), if the study drug is safe and, what side effects are caused by the study drug.
