Subject: EGID Study; Immunopathogenesis of Food Allergy and Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders.
Dear Sir or Madam,
Please help us inform our community about a new study under way at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Doctors at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases are conducting a study to improve understanding of how immune system responds to food allergens and how immune cells contribute to disease in individuals with food allergies and eosinophil-associated gastrointestinal disorders (EGIDs). The study is open to individuals 18 to 65 years old with EGID. There’s no cost for study-related procedures and compensation may be provided.
The NIH Clinical Research Center is located in Bethesda Maryland, and is the government’s premier research hospital. Clinical research is conducted to find new and improved ways to prevent, diagnose and treat disease. Approximately 1,000 studies are conducted at the Clinical Center on common and rare diseases. Every research patient and healthy volunteer admitted to the Clinical Center participates in a research study.
Your help will make a difference in our ability to improve the lives of people with this disease, as well as lives of future generations.
To participate, call 1-800-411-1222 (TTY#:1-866-411-1010).vSe habla español. For more information on the study, visit clinicaltrials.gov and refer to study 10-I-0196. NIH is part of the Department of Health and Human Services.
Healthcare cannot advance without clinical research, and your assistance is very much needed if we are to inform the public about opportunities to participate in our studies. I am attaching flyers about the study for your use. We would be most appreciative if you could post these flyers on your bulletin boards.
