(Trails Are Closed - Sorry) If you or your child suffers from skin warts, you’re not alone. After acne, warts are the most common skin complaint. Not only are warts unsightly, but they are also contagious, and can be spread to other parts of the body. Like many skin conditions, warts can take a major toll on self-esteem, causing sufferers to feel embarrassed or self-conscious. Right now, Darst Dermatology is accepting participants for a new clinical research study. The study is for an investigational topical gel (applied once daily) for common warts – which can appear in many places on the body, often on the fingers, hands, elbows, or knees. If you or your child have at least 1 wart, you may qualify to participate. If you join, you will receive study-related care at no cost from Dr. Darst and Darst Dermatology, and may also be compensated for your time and travel. What If I Participate? By joining the study, you or your child will receive: Evaluations by a local dermatologist Study-related care and medication at no cost* Compensation may be provided for time and travel to attend study visits * You do not need insurance to participate. Are there any costs involved in the study? If you qualify and choose to participate, you or your child will receive study-related care (such as study medications or any visits to your study doctor’s office) at no cost to you. You may also be compensated for your time and travel to attend study visits. How long does the study last? If you join the study, your participation could last up to 8 months and require 9 total scheduled visits to Darst Dermatology. What if I join the study and decide I do not want to participate anymore? As with all clinical studies, your participation is completely voluntary and you may choose to leave the study at any time. I am interested in hearing more. What is the next step?
