Current Studies for Actinic Keratosis (Sunspots)
The Center for Skin Research conducts clinical research trials for pharmaceutical companies and clinical research organizations seeking Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.
Sunspots are thick, scaly, discolored bumps on the skin. Also called actinic keratoses, solar keratosis, senile keratosis, or AK, it is caused by prolonged exposure to the sun and most often occurs in fair-skinned persons. When left untreated, it can often lead to skin cancer.
Actinic Keratosis (AK)
Has the sun damaged the skin on your face, chest or scalp and left you with rough raised spots? If so, you may be eligible to take part in a voluntary research study for actinic keratosis. Qualified participants will receive all study-related care and an investigational medicated product or placebo at no cost and may be compensated for time and travel. Health insurance is not required.
