Volunteers

Overweight Volunteers Needed

NICHD is looking for men and women ages 35-70 who are overweight and have abnormal glucose levels. After an initial screening visit for general health assessment, participants will undergo treatment with a cortisol-blocking medication (mifepristone) or a non-active pill (placebo) for 7 days. Each participant will take both study agents with a gap of 6 to 8 weeks between the two. Testing before and after treatment with the study medications will include blood drawing over 24 hours, urine collection, an oral and an intravenous glucose tolerance test and 1- to 2-day overnight inpatient stay. Compensation will be provided. For more information, call 1-800-411-1222 (TTY 1-866-411-1010) and refer to study 11-CH-0208.

Volunteers with NAFLD, NASH Sought

NIDDK seeks volunteers 18 and older with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) or non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Researchers want to know which dose of vitamin E most effectively treats these conditions. You will initially join a 12-week lifestyle modification program for diet and/or weight loss followed by up to 3 years of treatment with vitamin E. Throughout the study, a registered dietitian will provide counseling to help you achieve and maintain the diet and lifestyle changes. Study-related tests, procedures and medications are provided at no cost. For more information, call 1-866-444-2214 (TTY 1-866-411-1010) and refer to study 13-DK-0002.

Men with Prostate Cancer Needed

NINR seeks men 18 and older with prostate cancer to join a research study about the causes of fatigue during radiation treatment. Researchers also want to learn if exercise can help reduce this type of fatigue. The study involves at least 10 outpatient visits to the Clinical Center. Participants will have the option to complete an 8-week treadmill exercise program as part of the study. There is no charge for study-related procedures. For more information, call 1-800-444-2214 (TTY 1-866-411-1010) and refer to study 09-NR-0088.
