No health insurance is required to participate. You will receive all study related care from a specialist physician at no cost. The study will include visits to a clinic in your location.
Participants may receive compensation for participating in the study.
What happens if I Sign Up? We will match you to a study site in your area that needs participants with for Lichen Planus or Lichen Sclerosus or notify you when one becomes available. The study team will then contact you and you may have the opportunity to participate if qualified.
If you think you might like to participate in the Lichen Studies or would like more information, please enter your information below so we can see if you may qualify and can contact you about the studies. Keep in mind that participation is entirely voluntary. If you do decide to take part in a study, you may change your mind about participating at any time.
Lichen Planus is an inflammatory skin condition characterized by purple, polygonal, pruritic papules, and plaques. The lesions are often covered by lacy, reticular (netlike), white lines known as Wickham striae. Lichen planus can affect any skin-derived tissues, including the skin (most commonly), nails, and mucous membranes (like the nose or mouth).
At first, it typically affects the surfaces of the wrists, forearms, and legs and can be diagnosed via a skin biopsy taken by a doctor.
Lichen Sclerosus is a chronic inflammatory condition marked by white scaly plaques involving anogenital areas.
Lichen Sclerosus lesions are usually seen as white plaques, which may be atrophic or thickened, often present on labia minora and majora but may involve perineum and perianal areas.
The Lichen Planus and Lichen Sclerosus Studies are two different studies: one for Lichen Planus and one for Lichen Sclerosus.
A Clinical Research Study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps answer important questions about an investigational drug or device, such as: does it work, or how effective is it compared to another drug/device?
All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved by regulatory authorities for doctors to prescribe to patients. Without people taking part in these studies, we would have no new treatments. The volunteers who participate in clinical research studies play a major role in helping to advance medicine.
The Lichen Planus or Lichen Sclerosus Study will include various visits to a study clinic in your area and follow up phone calls at designated times.
All study-related care is provided at no cost to you. You do not need health insurance to participate.
Volunteers who take part in the study may receive compensation for their time and travel. Participation is entirely voluntary. Even if you decide to take part in this study, you can change your mind about participating at any time.
There is no cost to participate in the Lichen Planus or Lichen Sclerosus Study.

You will receive study-related care throughout the study from a team of professional doctors and nurses at no cost to you.
Volunteers who take part in the study may be compensated for their time and travel. Please discuss this with the study team when they contact you.
