Approximately 31 million people in the US have eczema. While various medical and non-medical treatments are available, not all of them are effective for everyone and some can even cause unwanted side effects.
Researchers are hoping to find potentially better treatment methods to relieve eczema symptoms. Recent studies have shown that a certain type of protein called IL-13 is constantly present in the skin of individuals with eczema.
Therefore, a research study at the Indiana Clinical Trials Center aims to find out the effectiveness and safety of an anti-IL-13 investigational medication in people with eczema. The study seeks men and women who currently suffer from moderate to severe eczema. Participants are required to attend 9 study visits at the research site over 15 months and will be compensated up to $675 for participating in this study.
