Januvia Study

Volunteers are needed for a study examining the immune function in healthy volunteers given short-term treatment of sitagliptin. Investigators wish to determine if and how sitagliptin alters immune function. If you are 18 years or older and healthy, consider participating in this study. All study-related tests are provided at no cost. Compensation is provided. Refer to study 09-DK-0055.

Adrenal Function in Critical Illness

The adrenal gland function study is currently seeking healthy volunteers age 55 or older to learn more about adrenal gland function in healthy people. This study will measure hormones in the blood, which may allow for a better way to evaluate whether gland functions are normal. This study requires one 3-hour visit for testing and blood work. You will be compensated if eligible to participate. Refer to study 05-CH-0013.

Liver Disease

Individuals with liver disease are needed for NIH study. NIDDK is conducting studies on liver diseases including hepatitis B, C, and D, primary biliary cirrhosis, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), fatty liver disease, autoimmune hepatitis, portal hypertension not due to cirrhosis, acute hepatitis from any cause and rare or unexplained liver disorders. Studies are conducted at the Clinical Center. No cost for study-related medications, tests or treatments. Must be 18 years of age or older. Refer to study 91-DK-0214.

Skin Study Seeks Pediatric Participants

We are seeking children between the ages of 3 and 12 diagnosed with atopic dermatitis (eczema) to join a research study at NIH. We wish to determine how microbes such as bacteria and fungi contribute to eczema. The results may help researchers develop more effective treatments for eczema. If your child is eligible for the study, a medical history and a physical examination of skin will be performed, skin will be sampled and there is a nose swab. A one time blood draw is also required. Compensation is provided. For more information, email guevaral@mail.nih.gov or call (301) 402-7043. Se habla español. Refer to study 08-HG-0059.
