Dermatology research success

6 February 2018

Dermatology researchCongratulations to the Dermatology research team at Chapel Allerton who successfully recruited the 10,000th biologic registration to the British Association of Dermatologists Biologic Interventions Register (BADBIR).

This is a UK and Eire observational study seeking to assess the long-term safety of biologic treatments for psoriasis. There are currently over 150 hospital sites across the UK and Eire taking part in BADBIR by recruiting participants to join the Register.

In 2017 Leeds was also the number one recruiter for conventional patients, the third best recruiter for biologic patients, and the number one recruiter for all patients. Well done to the team for this milestone achievement and for leading the way in this national study!
