Scalp Psoriasis

Scalp Psoriasis

Scalp psoriasis is a common skin disorder that makes raised, reddish, often scaly patches. It can pop up as a single patch or several, and can even affect your entire scalp. It can also spread to your forehead, the back of your neck, or behind and inside your ears. You can’t catch scalp psoriasis from another person.

The Doctors at Clinical Research Associates of Tidewater are enrolling for a clinical trial to test the effectiveness of an investigational medication to treat scalp psoriasis.


Qualified Participants have:

A clinical diagnosis of stable (at least 6 months) scalp psoriasis involving at least 10% of the scalp and clinical signs of psoriasis vulgaris on trunk and or limbs.

□ Scalp psoriasis consistent with at least moderate severity at the scalp target lesion site.

□ Agree to stop use of all other topical or systemic antipsoriatic treatments, corticosteroids, immunosuppressive drugs, calcium supplements and Vitamin D supplements or Vitamin D analogs at a dose >400 IU/day during the study.

□ Agree to avoid tanning booths, sun lamps and excessive non-prescription UV light exposure (including natural sunlight) during the study.

□ Currently in general good health and free from any clinically significant disease, other than scalp psoriasis and psoriasis vulgaris, that may interfere with the study evaluations.
