PeDRA is here to connect you with opportunities to conduct pediatric dermatology research. Use the search filters to find active clinical trials in your area of interest. The information returned from your search has been obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
If you think a clinical trial is missing from the search please let us know! We’d also love to hear your suggestions for additional filters or features that you’d like to see. This resource will evolve alongside the evolving needs of our research alliance.
10 Year Registry of Children (Ages 2-17 Years) With Eczema That Have Used Pimecrolimus
This study will examine the risk of systemic malignancies in pediatric patients with atopic dermatitis exposed to Elidel 1% cream.
A 5-year Longitudinal Observational Study of Patients Undergoing Therapy for IMISC
TARGET-DERM is a 5-year, longitudinal, observational study of adult and pediatric patients being managed for Atopic Dermatitis and other Immune-Mediated Inflammatory Skin Conditions (IMISC) in usual clinical practice. TARGET-DERM will create a research registry of patients with IMISC within academic and community real-world practices in order to assess the safety and effectiveness of current and future therapies.
A Clinical Trial of Pulsed-dye Laser Versus Timolol Topical Solution Versus Observation on the Growth of Hemangioma in Newborn
The purpose of this study is to find out if pulsed dye laser treatment or timolol maleate 0.5% gel can help infants who have a hemangioma. The investigators also want to find out if pulsed dye laser treatment and timolol maleate 0.5% gel are safe to use without causing too many side effects. Hemangioma is a common type of birthmark. These birthmarks happen when many new blood vessels grow in a specific area on the skin. Blood vessels are tiny tubes that carry blood through the body. No one knows what causes blood vessels to group together. Most birthmarks don't hurt at all and they usually aren't a sign of any kind of illness. Lots of...
Acne Detection Software (AcneDect)
This study is to create a self-learning software that can detect acne lesions. Patients take a picture of their face every single day for 3 months with a secure mobile phone and fill out a pre-designed questionnaire. After 3 months, the mobile will be collected back and the pictures will be evaluated by 3 dermatologists. The software is able to learn from the dermatologists' evaluation and -using machine learning- a mechanism that should be able to automatically detect acne to some extent will be established.
A Community-based Assessment of Skin Care, Allergies, and Eczema
Atopic dermatitis (AD) affects over 9 million children in the U.S. and often heralds the development of asthma, food allergy, skin infections and neurodevelopmental disorders. Recent advances identify skin barrier dysfunction to be the key initiator of AD and possibly allergic sensitization. Our central hypothesis is that daily emollient use from birth can prevent the development of AD in a community setting and into newborns unselected for risk. The results of a community-based clinical trial utilizing a pragmatic trial design will be immediately applicable to the population at large and will establish a new standard of care for all ...
A Comparative Study of the Healing of Chronic Ulcers of Recessive Epidermolysis Bullosa : Dressing vs Amniotic Membrane
Skin wounds of Recessive Epidermolysis Bullosa Dystrophica (REBD) involve pain, superinfection, protein-losing, inflammation, and joint contractures are the bed of squamous cell carcinoma. There is no precise data on the kinetics of healing post-bullous erosions but clinical experience suggests that most epidermise in less than a month. Some, however, for unknown reasons, persist for several months. These chronic ulcers (UC), arbitrarily defined for this study as lasting more than three months are a source of major discomfort and could play a decisive role in the morbidity and mortality of the disease. The aim of this study is to evaluate...
A Comparison of Intra-operative Radiotherapy Boost With External Beam Radiotherapy Boost in Early Breast Cancer.
TARGIT-Boost is an international randomised clinical trial designed to test the hypothesis that the tumour bed boost delivered as a single dose of targeted intraoperative radiotherapy (TARGIT-B) is superior to the conventional course of external beam radiotherapy boost (EBRT-Boost), especially in women with high risk of local recurrence. It is a pragmatic trial in which each participating centre can use the local predefined inclusion/exclusion criteria for entry into the trial. Only centres with access to the Intrabeam® (Carl Zeiss) are eligible to enter patients into the trial. Eligible patients are those with a higher risk of local...
ACTHar in the Treatment of Lupus Nephritis
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a disease in which the immune system attacks the healthy cells and tissues, causing inflammation that can damage organs in the body. About 50% of SLE patients experience inflammation in the kidneys. The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness and safety of two dosing arms of ACTHar gel in treating proliferative Lupus Nephritis (LN). This study hypothesizes that both dosing arms of ACTHar are safe and effective in treating proliferative LN (Class III and IV).
Acupuncture for Joint Symptoms in Patients With Breast Cancer
Joint symptoms including stiffness, local pain and aches are common adverse reactions among breast cancer (BC) patients undergoing hormone treatments, while effective interventions for managing such symptoms have not been well explored so far. Acupuncture can be a promising approach to controlling joint symptoms in BC patients but current research evidence generated from several small-scale clinical studies have not been robust enough to support the use of acupuncture for cancer symptom management in routine practice. The overall aim of the research project is to examine the effectiveness of a 6-week acupuncture protocol for the management...
Adjuvant Ovarian Suppression Plus Aromatase Inhibitor or Tamoxifen in Young Women
The objective of this study is to compare the curative effects in patients under the age of 35 with hormone receptor positive breast cancer and high recurrent risk factors including large tumor or metastatic lymph nodes randomized to ovarian function suppression (OFS) plus aromatase inhibitors or OFS plus tamoxifen as adjuvant endocrine therapy, and explore the differences of curative effects between different subtypes to provide direct evidence for treatments of young breast cancer patients.
