We have a comprehensive research programme led by the Skin Therapy Research Unit (part of the genetics and molecular medicine division at King’s College London). Our work includes clinical trials and research studies assessing new treatments in eczema.

You may be interested in taking part in one of our research projects or clinical trials. You can find details below about the projects we are currently recruiting to.
Eczema genetics – a research study for patients with eczema
Eczema Genetics is a research study looking at the genetic causes of eczema. Participants provide a blood sample and clinical information about their disease during a clinic visit.
EUROSTAD – a register for patients with eczema (European Prospective Observational Study in Patients Eligible for Systemic Immunosuppressive Therapy for Atopic Dermatitis)
EUROSTAD is a register for patients with eczema who are being treated in clinic with a drug therapy. Participants provide information at their clinic visits relating to disease and treatment history, complete health questionnaires, and are followed up every three months up to three years.
ALPHA – a clinical trial for patients with hand eczema
(Alitretinoin versus PUVA in severe chronic Hand eczema)
ALPHA is a trial comparing alitretinoin (a vitamin A based drug) with UV light therapy in the treatment of hand eczema.
We also have a number of other clinical trials going on in the department. We often work with drug companies to test new treatments for eczema to make sure they are safe and effective before being licensed in the NHS. Your doctor will talk to you about the current trials if they think you might be suitable.
