Tampa dermatologist Forman dermatology and skin cancer instituteTampa Dermatologist Dr. Seth Forman is expressing boundless optimism as the clinical trial for nail psoriasis his office in conducting is producing astounding results

Reformulated to specifically treat nail psoriasis, the medication Humira is being used in phase III of a clinical trial. Humira is an already available medication known to relieve pain and to reduce inflammation in a number of autoimmune diseases, including psoriasis.

Throughout the trials, the reformulated version of the medication has been given to patients in order to monitor and confirm its effectiveness. So far, the Tampa dermatologist says he’s impressed with the findings.

“We are happy with what we’ve seen so far,” said Dr. Forman. “This is by far the most effective nail psoriasis treatment I’ve ever seen. The results are that spectacular.”

The condition is a common feature seen in conjunction with cutaneous psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Nail psoriasis can affect as much as 50 percent of all psoriasis patients, causing distress from pain and an unsightly look, according to the Psoriasis Institute.

While the ongoing nail psoriasis clinical trials continue to move along fluidly, Dr. Forman says they are far from being over.

“The trials are still in the beginning phases and there is still a lot of work to be done,” said the Tampa dermatologist. “We aim to continue treating patients, both new and current, until we are fully satisfied with the outcome.”

Dr. Forman’s office offers multiple clinical trials for eczema, plaque psoriasis nail psoriasis and others. Clinical trials offer patients, insured or not, the opportunity for complimentary healthcare.
