What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a common, chronic, genetic, systemic inflammatory disease that is characterized by symptoms and signs such as elevated itchy plaques of raised red skin covered with thick silvery scales. Psoriasis is usually found on the elbows, knees, and scalp but can often affect the legs, trunk, and nails. Psoriasis may be found on any part of the skin.
Many prescription drugs have been approved to combat psoriasis as well as an investigational new drug.
Current Research Trial
PRG has teamed up with a Board Certified Dermatologist and are looking for adults to participate in a research study to evaluate whether an investigational oral study medication can successfully treat moderate to severe psoriasis.

If you are eligible, you will receive oral study medication and study-related care at no cost to you and may be compensated for time and transportation. Health insurance is not needed.
