NCI Study Seeks Brain Tumor Survivors

A study is open at the Pediatric Oncology Branch of the National Cancer Institute for children, ages 8 through 18 years, who have had a brain tumor that was treated with radiation at least 1 year ago. The study is evaluating whether a novel home physical activity program improves cognitive late effects, which may include difficulties with attention, memory and processing speed. For more information, call the Office of Patient Recruitment, 1-866-444-2214 (TTY 1-866-411-1010). Read more at http://go.usa.gov/x8MDY. Refer to study 14-C-0116.

Study Seeks Healthy Older Adults

Healthy older adults, ages 55-70, are invited to participate in an outpatient research study investigating the benefits of tart cherry and aroniaberry supplementation on vascular health. The goal of the study is to determine whether the supplements improve blood flow and blood vessel function that can affect your heart. Eligible participants must be medication-free and in good general health. The study will be carried out in an outpatient clinic and includes 7 visits over 3-4 months. Compensation for the study is provided. For more information, call 1-800-411-1222 (TTY 1-866-411-1010) and refer to study 15-NR-0085 or visit www.clinicaltrials.gov.

People with Dry Mouth Needed

NIDCR is seeking people with dry mouth due to radiation therapy for head and neck cancer. Researchers are testing whether an investigational gene therapy using “AAv2hAQP1” increases saliva in patients who have received radiation therapy for head and neck cancer. Travel to and from the Clinical Center (within the U.S.) will be provided. For more information, call 1-866-444-2214 (TTY 1-866-411-1010). Read more online at https://go.usa.gov/x8yXE.
