Clinical trials for Fanconi anemia, CLL or SLL, and heathy volunteers recruiting at the NIH Clinical Center

For more information on trials listed below, or to learn about other available opportunities to participate in research studies, call the NIH Clinical Center Office of Patient Recruitment 1- 866-444-2214, TTY: 1-866-411-1010. Or email Se habla español.

NHLBI researchers need volunteers with CLL or 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. Refer to Study # 17-H-0118.

NINDS researchers seek healthy volunteers for an outpatient research study. The purpose of this study is to understand more about how the brain controls motor function. Volunteers may receive brain, skin, and nerve stimulation, and may perform tests of hand movement, behavior, and learning (some tests may be done during an MRI scan of the brain). Volunteers may be scheduled for between 1-20 sessions. Sessions will be of various durations, lasting up to 8 hours each. There is no cost for research related procedures or participation. Compensation is provided. Refer to Study # 07-N-0122.
