Study of Fatigue Needs Volunteers

NINR invites cancer survivors or those with chronic illnesses such as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), Sjogren’s disease or lupus to participate in a research study on fatigue. Researchers want to test if a one-time dose of the medication ketamine or a similar drug can reduce fatigue. This is not a treatment study for fatigue, cancer, ME, CFS, Sjogren’s disease or lupus.
