The study, which takes place at the Clinical Center, involves no hormones or medications. Compensation ($50) is provided for each blood draw. For more information, call 496-5150.

Paid Volunteers Needed

Free Wisdom Teeth Removal

NIDCR seeks volunteers in need of wisdom teeth removal to participate in clinical studies evaluating new pain medicines.

The study involves imaging of the brain following oral surgery using positron emission tomography (PET scanning). Patients are required to make several visits to NIH but will be paid for their time if they complete all phases of the study. For more information contact Michael Burke, 496-6242.
