Study Of A Skin Biopsy Sampling Technique

Description

Seeking men and women with a skin condition called atopic dermatitis, which is a more severe type of eczema, for a study of a skin biopsy sampling technique called microsampling.

Overview

Participants in this study will have one standard punch biopsy to collect skin from an area about the size of pencil eraser and 18 microsample biopsies to collect skin from an area about the size of the point of a mechanical pencil.

What we're hoping for

We are studying whether a skin biopsy sampling technique called microsampling would collect enough tissue for testing compared to the standard punch biopsy technique.
