  1. As of May 1, 2017, PRP research at Thomas Jefferson University is the only game in town.

    In the waning hours of PRP Awareness Month 2016, the international PRP community received GREAT news. In accordance with federal regulations, ongoing PRP research has been approved and signed-off by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at Thomas Jefferson University.

    Dr. Jouni Uitto, Professor and Chair, Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology at Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University has invited PRP patients to participate in ongoing PRP research. Invitees can be …

    ✽ Active or in remission
    ✽ Adult or juvenile
    ✽ Young or old
    ✽ Northern or Southern Hemispheres — truly global

    This PRP research will consist of two distinct efforts:

    (1) Genetic analysis to identify genes and pathways involved in the onset of PRP, and

    (2) Clinical data analysis to improve the diagnosis and management of PRP.

    While Dr. Uitto and his researchers would prefer participation in both efforts (1 and 2), qualified invitees may enroll in either.
