We have been contacted by a pharmaceutical company to help recruit patients for a clinical trial being conducted in patients with Raynaud’s phenomenon secondary to scleroderma/systemic sclerosis. The study medication is a topical cream that will be applied to the hand. Participation will require travel to a clinical site. The first site is in Encinitas, California. Up to three additional sites in the Northeast and Midwestern states will be announced in the future. More information regarding the study is outlined below:
