Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a common chronic autoimmune skin disorder that presents as raised, red patches of skin covered with silvery-white scales, often accompanied by itching and discomfort. It is the most prevalent form of psoriasis, affecting millions of individuals worldwide. Plaque psoriasis is caused by an overactive immune system that prompts the rapid turnover of skin cells, leading to the characteristic thickened plaques. These plaques can appear anywhere on the body but are commonly found on the elbows, knees, scalp, and lower back. Plaque psoriasis is associated with a range of physical and emotional challenges, including pain, self-esteem issues, and a potential increased risk of other health conditions. We are conducting dermatology clinical trials to assess the efficacy and safety of potential new treatments that can improve Plaque Psoriasis.

Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria

Urticaria, commonly known as hives, is a skin condition causing the sudden appearance of itchy, raised welts or red bumps. Globally, it affects millions of people, making it one of the most prevalent dermatological disorders. Urticaria can be acute, lasting for a few hours to a few weeks, or chronic, persisting for six weeks or longer. An allergic reaction to various factors, such as certain foods, medications, insect stings, or physical stimuli like pressure or temperature changes typically triggers the condition. While urticaria is usually not life-threatening, it can be extremely uncomfortable and distressing due to the intense itching and discomfort it causes.
