Study of Fibroids Needs Women
Women are needed for a study evaluating a new drug that may shrink uterine fibroids in pre-menopausal women. If you are 25-50 years of age and suffer with fibroids, consider participating in this study. All study-related medications and treatments are provided at no cost. Compensation is provided. Refer to study 06-CH-0090.
Dry Mouth Study
Do you have dry mouth after radiation therapy for head and neck cancer? Are you currently cancer-free? If so, you may be eligible to participate in a clinical research study that will test a new gene therapy to try to increase saliva production.
All study-related tests and medications are provided at no cost.
Coronary Artery Disease
Have you had a heart attack, angioplasty or bypass surgery? If so, you may be eligible to participate in a clinical research study that will test an investigational medication that may lower C-reactive protein. C-reactive protein may indicate that you are at risk for sudden heart problems such as a heart attack. All study-related tests and medications are provided at no cost. Compensation is provided.
Patients with asthma who are taking inhaled steroids may be eligible to participate in a research study at NIH. There is no cost for study-related tests or medicines. The study will see if a medicine that is used widely for diabetes can improve asthma. Compensation is provided.
Women Needed for Alcohol Study
We are looking for women, between 55 and 65 years of age, to participate in a study of alcohol metabolism and responses. Participants must be social drinkers in good health. Study participation includes one 4-hour screening visit and two 8-hour study visits. During each study visit, you will receive an intravenous infusion of alcohol or saline. Blood samples, heart rate and subjective
measures will also be obtained. There is no cost to you for participation. If you qualify, you will be compensated for your time and participation. This study, 03-AA-0283, is being conducted in the Clinical Research Center. For more information call (301) 451-0308 or email etohstudy-L@mail.nih.gov.
One-Day Outpatient Study
Healthy volunteers, ages 19 to 55, are needed to participate in research studying genes and brain function.

Call the Clinical Brain Disorders Branch at (301) 435-8970 or email Danielef@mail.nih.gov.
Study of Genes, Aging and Cognition
Healthy volunteers, over the age of 55, are needed for a study of the genetics of aging and cognition. Participation requires a blood draw and non-invasive clinical, neurological and cognitive testing procedures. No overnight stays. No medication trials. Compensation is provided. Call Bobby Das at (301) 435-4593 or email DasB@intra.nimh.nih.gov. Refer to protocol 00-M-0085.
