Youngsters with Diabetes Sought

Metformin-related gastrointestinal side effects (bloating, diarrhea, cramping, nausea and vomiting) are common barriers to treatment in youths with type 2 diabetes (T2D), in whom there are no other oral FDA-approved alternatives. NIDDK researchers need your help to test whether taking a daily fiber supplement could improve tolerance of metformin. Compensation is provided. If you know a 10- to 25-year-old diagnosed with T2D and needing metformin treatment, call the Office of Patient Recruitment, 866-444-2214 (TTY 800-877-8339) or email prpl@cc.nih.gov. Refer to study 20-DK-0018. Read more at https://go.usa.gov/xdJ6k.

Healthy Volunteers Needed

Healthy volunteers are needed for a research study on traumatic brain injury at the Clinical Center. Compensation is provided. To learn how to participate, call the Office of Patient Recruitment at 866-444-2214 (TTY 800-877-8339) or email prpl@cc.nih.gov. Refer to study 15-CC-0164. Read more at https://go.usa.gov/xpPQV.

People with SAA Sought

NHLBI researchers are studying a new therapy for patients diagnosed with severe aplastic anemia (SAA). Researchers are evaluating if sirolimus can help prevent the relapse of SAA once cyclosporine treatment has stopped. All study-related medications, tests or procedures are at no cost to you. For more information, call the Office of Patient Recruitment, 1-800-411-1222 (TTY 1-800-877-8339). Read more at https://go.usa.gov/xnuz3. Refer to study 17-H-0019.

Healthy Volunteers Needed

NIDDK researchers seek healthy volunteers (18-45 years old) to participate in a study investigating how dopamine affects body weight and eating behavior. Participants must be able to visit the Clinical Center for 5 consecutive days to pick up food and then have a 5-day inpatient stay. For more information, call the Office of Patient Recruitment, 1-866-444-2214 (TTY for the deaf or hard of hearing: 1-866-411-1010) or email prpl@cc.nih.gov. Read more at https://go.usa.gov/xPTBn. Refer to study 18-DK-0132.

Adults Wanted for Study of Gum Disease

NIDCR seeks adults with and without gum disease (periodontal disease) to join a research study. Researchers want to learn how a person’s immune system affects the health of the mouth. You will have two outpatient visits; oral exam; dental X-rays and photos; blood, urine and saliva collection; and gum biopsy. Study-related tests and procedures are provided at no cost. Compensation will be provided. For more information, call the Office of Patient Recruitment at 1-866-444-2214 (TTY 1-866-411-1010) and refer to study 12-D-0100.
