Are you interested in taking part in a trial of patients with Psoriasis?

**New dates to be confirmed. Check back here for updates.**

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. It occurs when the immune system regards the skin cells as a pathogen and sends out faulty signals that speed up the growth cycle of skin cells.

Psoriasis is not contagious and typically develops as patches (plaques) of red, scaly skin. The severity of psoriasis in different people varies greatly. In some people it is mild with a few small patches that develop and are barely noticeable, where for others, there are many patches of varying size. Psoriasis affects 2-3% of the population of the UK and Ireland.

To qualify for participation in this study you need to:

  • Be aged between 18 and 77 years (inclusive) at screening
  • Have a documented diagnosis of psoriasis (with a confirmed medical history available from your GP).
  • Have a body mass index (BMI) between ≥18.0 and ≤35.0 kg/m2  (inclusive). Your BMI is calculated using the formula: weight (in kilograms) divided by height (in metres) squared).
