Study Subjects Sought graphic

Stress Hormones, Depression Studies

The Clinical Neuroendocrino-logy Branch, NIMH, is seeking people with current or past depression to participate in an evaluation study at the Clinical Center. Participants should be 18 to 65 years old; medically healthy; nonsmokers within the past year; and able to participate in studies involving at least one night's stay at the Clinical Center. Eligible volunteers will receive a physical evaluation, metabolic studies and participate in studies for possible heart disease and osteoporosis in depression. They will also be paid. For more information, call 496-5831 or 496-1892 voice mail #1 for Dr. June Cai.

Postmenopausal Women Sought

Postmenopausal women not currently taking hormone replacement therapy are needed to participate in a study. Participants will be required to give a small blood sample (about 2 tablespoons) in an initial screening. Total visit time required is about 30-45 minutes. The study, which takes place at the Clinical Center, does not require you to take any new medications or stop any current ones — it involves only a blood sample and there is no age cut-off. Compensation ($50) is provided for each blood draw. For more information, call 496-5150.

Female Paid Volunteers Needed

Are you female, 18 to 35 years old, in good health and not on birth control pills? You may be eligible to participate in a study of commonly prescribed medications. The study involves multiple visits to the Uniformed Services University (next to the Naval Medical Center, across the pike from NIH) over a 3-month period. Earn up to $880 and get a free medical exam. Call (301) 319-8204 for more information and a preliminary telephone screening.

Free Wisdom Teeth Removal

NIDCR seeks volunteers in need of wisdom teeth removal to participate in clinical studies evaluating new pain medicines. Patients will have their wisdom teeth removed at no cost by a board-certified oral surgeon using local anesthesia and intravenous sedation. Patients will be evaluated for participation in ongoing research studies. For more information contact Michael Burke, 496-6242.
