Hives Clinical Research Studies

Hives, or urticaria are itchy red or skin-colored welts that can appear on the skin of people of all ages. These can be caused by numerous things such as an allergic reaction to a food or drug, however, experts are unsure of the exact cause of hives and urticaria. We are currently conducting a clinical research study investigating a new type of oral medication for the treatment of urticaria. Medication will be provided at no cost with no insurance needed for those who qualify, you will be reimbursed for your time and travel, and will receive care from physicians affiliated with the Clinical Research Center of Alabama.
