Dermatology Clinical Trials & Prospective Studies
The Department of Dermatology is currently involved in several clinical trials and registries in the areas of:
- Incidence and Mortality of Melanoma and access to care in Nebraska.
- The efficiency of a multi-modal approach to sun-safety in skin cancer patients.
- Quality of Life and Venolymphatic Disease: A prospective study
- Integration of patient, satisfaction, functional status and quality of life in determining appropriateness of skin cancer treatment in advanced age and high-risk patients.
- Teledermatology and increasing access to care in agricultural populations.
Dermatology Patient Data Registry: The purpose is to collect retrospective and prospective demographic, clinical (including photographs), survey data, pathology, management and outcome data relevant to numerous skin cancers, tumors and dermatologic diseases of interest. We will assess where there are gaps in access to care and teledermatology and current knowledge surrounding presentation, prognosis, management and outcomes. We will have separate sections for the various types of skin cancer, tumors and dermatologic diagnoses
UNMC Dermatology Tissue Bank: We developed a UNMC Dermatology Tissue and Blood Bank which aims to collect excess tissue and extra blood from patients with dermatologic diseases at UNMC for the purpose of future genetic, cellular, molecular and clinical database studies. The goal of this project is to develop a cohort of samples that is representative of all Dermatology patients.
New studies are also being added, so check this page often for updates.
