Volunteers with Leukemia Needed

NHLBI researchers need volunteers with CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) or small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) for a new investigational treatment study. Researchers are adding pembrolizumab (an immunotherapy agent) to standard treatment. If you have received treatment for CLL and progressed or have high-risk genetic changes, such as deletion 17p, TP53 mutation, NOTCH1 mutation or complex cytogenics, you may be interested in participating. To learn more, call the Office of Patient Recruitment at 1-866-444-2214 (TTY 1-866-411-1010). Read more online at https://go.usa.gov/xRFmE. Refer to study 17-H-0118.

Flu Vaccine Study Recruits Healthy Vols

Vaccine Research Center researchers seek healthy volunteers, 18-70 years old, for an investigational influenza vaccine study. Scientists are testing new vaccines to determine if they are safe and effective in preventing the flu. Compensation is provided. For more information, call 1-866-833-5433 or email vaccines@nih.gov. Read more at https://go.usa.gov/xNH7U. Refer to study VRC316.

Asthma Research Seeks Participants Ages 18+

Individuals 18 years or older with asthma are sought to participate in a 1- to 2-day research study in the Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Branch at the National Institutes of Health. A thorough medical evaluation and monetary compensation will be provided. If interested, call (301) 402-1553.

Have Hepatitis B?

Do you have chronic hepatitis B? Researchers are testing whether taking an oral antiviral and peg-interferon injection together is safe and better controls the hepatitis B virus as compared to taking only one of the medications. Study-related tests, procedures and medication are at no cost. For more information, contact the Office of Patient Recruitment, 1-866-444- 2214 (TTY 1-866-411-1010). Read about the study at http://go.usa.gov/x9nSt. Refer to 15-DK-0082.
