Non Invasive Imaging: Healthy Volunteers

If you are a healthy volunteer and have not been diagnosed with heart failure or ailments, you may be eligible to participate in a study that will evaluate the accuracy of non-invasive imaging testing in assessing how the heart functions. Study participants will be required to travel to NIH for initial screening and will undergo an MRI or CT scan with iodine contrast. The study duration is approximately 24 months. All study-related tests and medications will be provided at no cost. Refer to study 10-CC-0153. Se habla espaņol.

Non Invasive Imaging: Heart Failure

If you have been diagnosed with heart failure and you are not claustrophobic, you may be eligible to participate in a study that will evaluate the accuracy of non-invasive imaging testing in assessing how the heart functions. Study participants will be required to travel to NIH for initial screening and will undergo an MRI or CT scan with iodine contrast. The study duration is approximately 24 months. All study-related tests and medications will be provided at no cost. Refer to study 10-CC-0153. Se habla espaņol.

Diet-Induced Obesity

Healthy volunteers are needed for a study investigating the reasons why some individuals maintain their weight. The study looks at the response to different diets in relation to their metabolism. Consider participating in this study if you are 30-50 years of age, have a body mass index (BMI) between 18.5-23.0 and have a stable weight (less than 2 percent change in the last 6 months). All study-related tests and meals are provided at no cost. Compensation is provided. Refer to study 09-DK-0238.

Adult Stem Cell

Healthy volunteers are needed for a study designed for the collection of stem cells from blood of adult humans for use in research. Researchers are studying adult stem cells to gain insight into blood diseases. If you are 18 years of age or older, consider participating. All study-related tests are provided at no cost. Compensation is provided. Refer to study 06-DK-0142. Se habla espaņol.

Loa Loa Study

Have you ever traveled to or lived in central or western Africa for longer than 1 month? Have you or someone you know experienced worms moving along the white part of the eye? Are you between 18 and 65 years old? NIAID is seeking volunteers to participate in a research study evaluating the effectiveness of reslizumab in reducing the side effects of the standard drug therapy used to treat Loa loa. All participants will be required to travel to NIH for an overnight stay. All study-related tests or treatment are provided at no cost. Refer to study 10-I-0101. Se habla espaņol.

Staphylococcus Study

NIAID is conducting a study on invasive and recurrent community-acquired Staphylococcus aureus infections, often called staph infections. If you are older than 2 years of age and have had a staph infection, contact us to see if you can participate in this study. Participation involves up to two visits. Parents must give permission for a minor to participate. Studies are conducted at the Clinical Center. There is no cost for study-related tests. Refer to study 09-I-0157.
