Do You Have a RASopathy Syndrome?

RASopathies are rare disorders caused by a genetic change often diagnosed in infancy or early childhood. People with RASopathy syndromes may have developmental issues, cognitive and congenital disabilities and poor growth, and may also have an increased risk of developing cancer. An NCI study will look to better understand medical conditions in individuals with RASopathies. If you or a relative have been diagnosed with a RASopathy syndrome and want to know how to enroll in the study, contact the Clinical Center Office of Patient Recruitment at (866) 444-2214 (TTY users dial 711) or email ccopr@nih.gov and reference study #20-C-0107 Online: https://rasopathies.cancer.gov

Volunteers Needed for Taste/Smell Study

Investigators at NIH are seeking volunteers between ages 18 and 65 to participate in a study to better understand taste and smell alterations and how they differ in obese versus non-obese individuals. All study-related tests provided at no cost and compensation is provided. Contact the Clinical Center Office of Patient Recruitment at (866) 444-2214 (TTY users dial 711) or ccopr@nih.gov. Refer to study 000261-AA. https://go.usa.gov/xeuse.

Adults with Diabetes Wanted

NIDDK researchers seek adults with type 2 diabetes to join a study. Doctors will investigate physiology of vitamin C in red blood cells of diabetic subjects as a function of the presence of glucose in the blood, with and without vitamin C supplementation. Compensation is provided. For details, contact the Clinical Center Office of Patient Recruitment at (866) 444-2214 (TTY users dial 711) or ccopr@nih.gov. Refer to study #14-DK-0060.

Volunteers with Type O Blood Sought

NIAID is looking for volunteers with type O blood to create a supply of malaria-rich blood for future malaria research. Volunteers will be infected with a mild case of malaria, donate their blood for future research and then be treated with a highly effective malaria treatment. Participants may experience mild, flu-like symptoms but will be monitored closely and treated quickly. Volunteers will receive compensation for participating. For details, call (866) 444-2214 or email ccopr@nih.gov. Refer to study #000212-I or visit https://go.usa.gov/xejfb.
