At Solbari we believe in raising awareness and giving back. We proudly support the Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc., and have an opportunity for people affected by psoriasis.
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition which is represented by patches of abnormal skin. The affected areas of skin are typically reddish in colour, itchy, scaly and dry. Psoriasis can be localised or cover many skin areas in extreme cases.
There are five different types of psoriasis but the most common type is called plaque psoriasis which accounts for 90 percent of cases. The areas of the body most commonly impacted by psoriasis include the back, scalp forearms and shins.
You can make a difference by participating in a clinical trial and work collectively with the Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc. team to find better solutions for complex skin issues.
The Skin & Cancer Foundation is seeking adults 18+ with a diagnosis of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis to participate in a 52 week research study.
To be eligible, participants must have psoriasis that covers 10% or more of their body surface area.
Participants will receive investigational study medication (active drug) or placebo (inactive drug).
Reimbursement for study-related expenses will be provided.

Your skin is your largest organ and has a long memory. Sun exposure and ultraviolet (UV) damage is cumulative throughout your life. Research shows that sun damage contributes to more than 90% of wrinkles, brown spots, premature skin ageing as well as precancerous and cancerous skin lesions.
It is very difficult to the untrained eye to identify melanomas and skin cancers because they can come in many different shapes and sizes.
As Associate Professor Rosemary Nixon from the Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc. says, "the earlier a skin cancer is identified and treated, the better the chance of avoiding surgery, or in the case of a serious melanoma or skin cancer, potential disfigurement or even death."
