JBR Clinical Research is conducting a clinical research study of an investigational medication to help treat molluscum contagiosum.

Why participate in this clinical research study?

Clinical studies are what allow all medications to come to market, including drugs that treat pain, infections, and various medical conditions. Without clinical studies, no medications would be available for use and are only possible with the help of participants like you. Compensation varies by study, time involved, and whether you complete all visits and procedures in the study. Every volunteer study at JBR Clinical Research is reviewed by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to make sure the risks are as low as possible and are worth any potential benefits to the volunteer.

What to expect.

Patients that qualify for the study may receive no cost investigational topical medication and study related care by one of our board-certified physicians. There are up to 6 visits over a 12-week period. During this time, you will need to apply the study drug once a day. The physician will tell you how often to apply.

Space in the molluscum contagiosum study is limited. To be considered for the molluscum contagiosum study, please fill out and submit your information on the form.

What is a Molluscum Contagiosum?
Molluscum Contagiosum is a common skin disease that is cause by a virus that spreads easily between people. Molluscum is usually harmless. It does, however, cause growths that can form anywhere on the skin. The growths appear between one week and several months after you come in contact with the virus. Molluscum Contagiosum can clear on its own without leaving scars, but this may take months or even years
What Does it Look Like?

Molluscum cause growths on the skin that tend to be:

  • Small
  • Shiny
  • Round or dome-shaped
  • White, pink, or flesh colored
  • Dimpled or indented in the center
  • Smooth
  • Firm

The growths can become red and swollen. Sometimes they even feel sore or itch, but this is less common.

In people with weakened immune systems, the growths may be very large in size and number, especially on the face. Growths can also appear in a row, or group together on the chest, abdomen, buttocks, face, eyelids.

How it Spreads

People can get the virus by:

  • Having direct skin-to- skin contact with someone who has molluscum
  • Touching an object, such as a towel, mat, toy, or clothing that previously touched a
    growth on someone’s skin.

If you have molluscum, you can even spread it to other parts of your body. All it takes is rubbing or scratching a growth and then touching unaffected skin. To prevent it from spreading, you should avoid picking and scratching the bumps.

You can take steps to help prevent spreading the virus to others by keeping the growths clean and cover them with clothing or bandages.
