The Need for Eczema Research

Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a chronic skin condition characterized by flaky skin lesions and intense itching. Eczema is one of the most common skin conditions, and the disease typically involves flexural folds and/or the face, neck, upper arms, back, hands, and/or feet. The cause of eczema is not fully understood. An estimated 10% of adults and up to 20% of children suffer from eczema.

How to Participate in an Eczema Research Trial

Meridian has research sites nationwide that are conducting research studies in a wide range of therapeutic areas. New studies are added every week. You can help fight eczema by joining a study at Meridian.

Beyond helping advance medicine, you may also:

  • Get care from a local doctor at no cost
  • Receive study-related medical exams at no cost
  • Get paid for participating (amounts differ for each study)

The best way to find out which eczema research studies are currently enrolling patients in your community and determine your eligibility is to complete the form on this page or call Meridian to speak with an enrollment specialist.

After you submit your information, a Meridian enrollment specialist will contact you. Together, we'll review studies that might be right for you and answer your questions.

Health insurance is NOT required to join. There is never an obligation to participate — we're here to help you make the best decision.
