Healthy Volunteers Needed

If depression has never been a problem for you and the fall and winter seasons do not affect how you feel very much, you may be eligible to participate in a research study. We are looking for volunteers with good mental health, 18 years or older. If you qualify, participation involves a 3-4-hour visit including questionnaires. Participants will be compensated for their time. For more information, call the Mood Laboratory at the Uniformed Services University, (301) 295-3241.

Families Sought for Study

The NIEHS environmental autoimmunity group is enrolling families — in which an adult or child meets criteria for rheumatoid arthritis/juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic sclerosis or myositis — and in which a twin or sibling of the same gender, who is within 47 months of age, does not have any one of these four illnesses or another autoimmune disease. Subjects may enroll at the Clinical Center or in their local doctors' offices. Patients remain under the care of their personal physicians while participating in the study. There is no charge for study-related evaluations and medical tests at NIH. For more information call 1-800-411-1222 (TTY: 1-866-411-1010).
