Chronic Pruritus Clinical Trials in Boston - Chronic Itch

Chronic Pruritus / Itch

Pruritus, commonly known as itching, is a sensation that causes a person to want to scratch or rub their skin. Itching is caused by several factors, including skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and hives as well as other medical conditions like diabetes, kidney disease, and thyroid disorders. Certain medications and allergic reactions can also cause itching. The severity of itching can vary from mild to severe, and in some cases, it can be debilitating and affect a person’s quality of life. MetroBoston is conducting chronic pruritus clinical trials in Boston to assess the efficacy and safety of new potential treatments for Pruritus.
