About This clinical research study

Eczema, which is also known as atopic dermatitis, is one of the most common types of skin diseases. The common feature of this inflammatory skin disease is itching. Eczema often relapses, meaning symptoms will improve for a while but then return. Currently there is no cure for the disease.

Many people with eczema improve their condition and relieve their symptoms using moisturising treatments and drugs such as steroid creams, lifestyle changes and phototherapy (treatment with light). However, for about 20% of people with moderate to severe forms of eczema these treatments are not as effective especially in the long term.

Clinical research studies are performed as a way of bringing about progress in medicine and research. Clinical research studies make it possible to scientifically assess the properties of a drug, to demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of a treatment or a medical device, or to learn more about a disease and methods to diagnose and monitor it.

If the study is successful, it may be an important step towards developing a promising new treatment.

MAC Clinical Research is conducting a trial to evaluate a potential new treatment for eczema.
