Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that occurs when hair follicles plug with oil and dead skin cells. There are many different types of prescription, herbal, and home remedies that are designed to treat the signs and symptoms of acne. However, not one treatment can cure acne.
Clinical research is paving the way to identify new types of acne treatments that have fewer side effects and are more effective in a shorter amount of time.

Actinic Keratosis (AK) is a very common type of skin condition that is also referred to as a pre-cancerous skin lesion. AK’s are very common in patients with fair skin or that reside in sunny areas. AK’s are characterized by a rough or scaly patch on the skin that is caused typically by years of sun exposure.
AK’s typically occur on skin that is exposed to the sun, for example, the face and scalp. AK’s are traditionally treated by a dermatologist with either a topical medication or a procedure called cryo-freezing. Even though there are multiple prescription topical medications on the market there is still a need to identify one that has reduced side effects with better results.
Clinical research is paving the way to identify new types of treatments for AK that have fewer side effects and are more effective in a shorter amount of time. PRG and our board-certified dermatologists are working together with leading pharmaceutical companies to conduct research on a new topical medication for AK.

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), also known simply as depression, is a mental disorder characterized by at least two weeks of low mood that is present across most situations. MDD can also cause individuals to feel or have low self-esteem, loss of interest in normally enjoyable activities, low energy, and in some instances physical pain without a clear cause.
MDD is very common and individuals can experience sporadic periods or episodes of depression that can be separated by weeks, months, or even years. With every medical diagnosis, complications can arise if not the indication is not treated properly. In some cases, MDD that goes untreated and continues to progress can lead to having or acting on suicidal thoughts, which can be fatal.
There are numerous medications and non-medicated treatments available to anyone who is suffering from MDD. It is advised that anyone who is experiencing symptoms of MDD and is having suicidal thoughts be seen by a medical professional right away. As with all medical ailments, not one medication will work for everyone. For this reason, medical research in the psychiatry therapeutic area continues thrive in efforts to identify better treatments with less side effects for patients experiencing MDD.
PRG has partnered with Metropolitan Neruo Behavioral Institute and OASIS Behavioral Hospital to conduct a ground-breaking clinical trial of an investigational medication to treat patients who are suffering from MDD and having suicidal thoughts and/or actions.

PRG is working with a leading device company to research their device further and how it helps with pain after surgical procedures.
Post-operative pain both acute, meaning right after surgery, and chronic – a consistent pain that has originated from having a surgical procedure are typically treated with some type of oral or injectable medications. Research on how to reduce oral pain medications for individuals dealing with acute and chronic pain due to a surgical procedure continues to grow.
