Chronic Hives Questionnaire

Thank you for your interest in a clinical trial for chronic hives, also known as chronic urticaria.

To see if you might qualify for a clinical trial and to be referred to the local trial center in your area, please take a moment to complete the questionnaire below. Answering all questions should take about 2 minutes. This questionnaire is for recruitment of adult patients only (18+). If you want to know more about a chronic induced urticaria clinical trial for adolescents, click here.

There’s no obligation

Completing the online questionnaire does NOT obligate you to participate in one of three Chronic Urticaria Clinical Trials. You will be asked questions about your health and medical history, and other questions that will help to determine if you may qualify to participate in a Chronic Urticaria Clinical Trial. If you grant permission, and your health history is a match for trial requirements, you will be contacted by a member of the Clinical Study Team at the clinic. The Clinical Study Team may contact you by telephone, email or text.
