Research Alert: Healthy Volunteers Needed for Georgetown CFS Study

Posted Oct 04 2009 11:11pm
Do you or does someone you know live near Washington, DC (or are you willing to travel there at your own expense)?

Georgetown University is conducting a research study called " Proteomics of Cerebrospinal Fluid in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome."

I have volunteered for this study (will post an update about this soon); however, they still need many more HEALTHY individuals between the ages of 21 to 65 who are willing to undergo a lumbar puncture (a.k.a. spinal tap) and other minor procedures including blood tests. There is some financial compensation for completing the study.

Call 202-687-8231 or email cfsresearch@georgetown.edu if you are interested.

Please spread the word. Forward this post, email your friends and loved ones, post info on your blog or message boards, or just stand outside and shout about it.

This is the kind of serious research we need more of!

Today's Activities: work. Today's Most Annoying Symptoms: exhaustion, muscle fatigue, headache, nausea, light headed.
