EPP study: Salford Royal Hospital

The Photobiology team at Salford Royal Hospital are seeking adults with EPP (Erythropoietic protoporphyria) to take part in a study examining the relationship between daylight exposure and occurrence of symptoms throughout the year.

The study, funded by the British Skin Foundation, is recruiting now.

Participants will complete a diary for up to four weeks in each season to record their time spent outdoors, weather conditions, clothing and sunscreen worn, and occurrence of symptoms. Attendance at the hospital is not required.

For further information, please contact: Joanne Osman, Senior Research Nurse on 0161 206 0457 or joanne.osman@manchester.ac.uk.
