Watch on Demand: Clinical Trials for Vitiligo With Dr. Pandya

Written by Torrey Kim
Posted on October 25, 2021

Treatments for vitiligo are being researched every day, and clinical trials are among the best ways that scientists can continue to make strides toward a cure for the condition.

Dr. Amit Pandya shared this important insight during MyVitiligoTeam’s live Q&A on Oct. 21. During the event, members of the vitiligo community had a chance to learn about how research studies and clinical trials help lead to breakthroughs in vitiligo treatment.

Dr. Pandya joined MyVitiligoTeam co-founder Eric Peacock to answer questions on how people can get involved with research studies, what it means to participate in a phase 1 trial versus a phase 2 trial, and whether clinical studies are open to people of all ages.

They were also joined by several panelists from pharmaceutical companies who discussed the treatments they’re working on for vitiligo. In addition, two people with vitiligo who have participated in research studies shared their experiences and provided advice for others who may be interested in joining a trial.
