Volunteers Needed for Flu Study

Doctors at NIAID are conducting a study that will look at aspects of influenza infection. Volunteers must be older than 2, have a positive clinical diagnostic test for the flu within the past 2 months and be able to safely undergo blood draws as well as nasal washes. Volunteers will be compensated for their participation. Study visits will occur at the Clinical Center. Participants will be asked questions (parents can answer for children), have a physical exam and have nasal secretions and/or blood collected. Depending on when you were diagnosed with the flu, you may be asked to make 2-7 visits over a 1-month period. For more information, contact Jocelyn Voell, (301) 435-7913, or Charles Fiorentino, (301) 443-5447.

People with Memory Problems Needed

The Mood & Anxiety Disorders Program, NIMH, is looking for people suffering from mild to moderate memory problems that are getting worse with time. Participants should be older than 45 years of age and be accompanied by someone who knows them well. Participants should not already have a diagnosis of a brain disorder, with the exception of Alzheimer’s disease or minor cognitive impairment. Study procedures may include MRI and PET scans, neurological examination and neuropsychological testing. Four outpatient visits to the Clinical Center are required. Call 1-866-MAP-NIMH (627-6464) for more information. Refer to study 09-M-0198.
