NIAID Seeks Healthy Volunteers

NIAID study seeks healthy adult volunteers, 18-64 years old. Researchers want to better understand the effects of glucocorticoids on the body. These medications are commonly used to treat conditions that cause inflammation on the skin and in the body like lupus, asthma and eczema. This research may help us find better treatments for people with conditions that cause inflammation. Participants will receive one intravenous dose of a glucocorticoid and a glucocorticoid cream will be applied to a small area of the skin. Blood and skin samples will be collected. Two outpatient visits at the Clinical Center are required. Compensation is provided. For more information, contact the Office of Patient Recruitment, 1-866-444-2214 (TTY 1-866-411-1010).
