Brief Summary of Protocol:
Our laboratory is studying several disease of the skin known as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis or eczema, as well as some infections or cancer.

We are trying to identify patients that are qualified and willing to participate in dermatology studies.



Detailed Description of Protocol:
You will have your medical history taken, your skin will be examined, and the nature of participation in various research studies will be discussed. If it is not clear from examining your skin what is wrong, you may have a skin biopsy. A skin biopsy is a minor surgical procedure where a small piece of skin is removed (approximately the size of a pencil eraser) after it has been anesthetized or numbed with local anesthesia. You will be billed for the processing of this biopsy by an outside laboratory. Also, a blood sample may be drawn (1 to 5 tablespoons) may be done to further determine if you are qualified. You may or may not give permission for these.
