Why do people participate in clinical trials? There are several reasons why. One reason is there a significant percentage of people with a medical condition such as psoriasis who have tried and exhausted all possible treatment options. Either the treatment didn’t work at all or stopped working. Clinical trials offer a way for patients to try a new treatment option when all else has failed. In many instances, we have seen stubborn psoriasis or eczema disappear quickly in a trial after starting the investigation drug. Another reason why people enroll in clinical trials is lack of insurance coverage. Unfortunately, there are many people who do not have insurance or their insurance does not provide enough coverage for an ideal treatment due to cost. Besides researching and developing new drugs for FDA approval, CSI conducts research on drugs that are already FDA approved and out on the market. For example, some trials test to see how far the dosage of a medication can be spaced out. This allows using the minimal amount of drug while ensuring efficacy. Another purpose is to test a new formulation of an existing product such changing the concentration of the active ingredient or switching the vehicle from a cream to a spray. CSI is expanding its scope of research and development by entering into other specialties of medicine such as rheumatology, cardiovascular disease, urology, endocrinology, and others. Other potential areas of research that we are considering are stem cell research and genetic testing. We are excited by this new endeavor to improve your health and quality of life.
