Clinical trials are research studies that investigate new or experimental treatments in patients living with a specific disease such as cicatricial alopecia. These studies are important because they contribute to the overall knowledge and understanding of cicatricial alopecia. Clinical trials and studies also play an instrumental role in the development and approval of new treatment options. People who are willing to participate in clinical trials and research studies can benefit personally, while helping all cicatricial alopecia patients and potentially furthering important cicatricial alopecia research.
One of the most impactful ways CARF and the cicatricial alopecia community can push the research agenda is by awarding research grants to dedicated, innovative researchers. We hope you consider making a tax-deductible donation towards our research grant program here.
