Research on tofacitinib to treat immune skin conditions in people with Down syndrome

The purpose of this research is to determine whether tofacitinib is a safe and effective treatment for immune skin conditions in people with Down syndrome, and to further our understanding of the immune system in Down syndrome.

Adults with Down syndrome between the age of 18 and 60 years may be eligible to participate if they have an active immune skin condition. For example: eczema or atopic dermatitis, alopecia areata, hidradenitis suppurativa, psoriasis, or vitiligo.
