Granuloma Annulare Clinical Trials

Granuloma Annulare Treated With Rifampin, Ofloxacin, and Minocycline Combination Therapy
Granuloma annulare is a benign, usually self-limiting, cutaneous dermatosis, which typically presents as asymptomatic, flesh-colored or red papules, frequently arranged in an annular pattern on the distal extremities. Although localized granuloma annulare is most commonly observed, a generalized or [more...]  disseminated form can occur. The etiology of granuloma annulare is unknown, however, multiple inciting factors have been proposed. The purpose of the investigators is to review the outcomes of treatment of granuloma annulare (GA) resistant to standard regimens that resolved after a 3-months treatment course of monthly rifampin, ofloxacin, and minocycline (ROM) therapy, successfully used to treat paucibacillary leprosy, a disease with clinical and histopathologic similarity to GA.

Ultraviolet B (UVB) Light Therapy in the Treatment of Skin Conditions With Altered Dermal Matrix
This research study will evaluate the effectiveness of high dose UVB light therapy in the treatment of keloid (or hypertrophic scar), scleroderma, acne keloidalis nuchae, old burn scars, granuloma annulare or related conditions.
Status: Completed Start Date: August 2002 Completion Date: January 2009
UVA1 Light for Scleroderma and Similar Conditions
The purpose of this investigation is to evaluate the effectiveness of high-dose UVA1 irradiation in the treatment of fibrosing conditions of the skin, e.g., keloid (a thick scar from growth of fibrous tissue), scleroderma (deposits of fibrous tissue in the skin) [more...]  and acne keloidalis nuchae (keloids on the back of the neck or hairline) old burn scars, granuloma annulare or other similar skin conditions. This UVA1 dosing schedule has been used successfully in Germany for various skin diseases, such as the above mentioned scleroderma.
Status: Terminated Start Date: January 1997 Completion Date: May 2011

 

Clinical trials allow volunteers access to medical treatment options before they are available to the general public. Participants often receive the best healthcare available for their condition.

Risks are a reality, however, and may include more frequent doctor visits, health risks (possibly life-threatening), and/or the treatment being ineffective. Trials are federally regulated with strict guidelines to protect participants.

Granuloma Annulare Clinical Trials Information presented on ClinicalTrialsSearch.org is not intended to be a substitute for qualified medical advice visit or treatment with a real physician. We are not physicians. Always consult with a medical doctor (MD). ClinicalTrialsSearch.org is a website dedicated to listing clinical research studies in human subjects, including those specifically related to Granuloma Annulare. Clinical research trials and medical trials take place in hundreds of cities across the United States. A clinical trial or clinical study is a research project with human volunteer subjects. Clinical drug trials and pharmaceutical clinical trials generally measure the effectiveness of new treatments and drugs. The purpose of the studies is to answer specific human health questions. Clinical trials are a popular way for doctors, government agencies, and private sector companies to find treatments for all kinds of conditions. Clinical trials allow volunteers access to medical treatment options before they are available to the general public. Many times the participants receive treatment for free, and sometimes they are paid for their time. Participants often receive the best healthcare available possible for their condition. Risks are a reality, however, and may include more frequent doctor visits, health risks (possibly life-threatening), and/or the treatment being ineffective. U.S. - based Granuloma Annulare studies are federally regulated with strict guidelines to protect patients.
