UCSF Lipodystrophy Studies
« on: July 15, 2006, 03:45:00 PM »
If anyone is located in the San Francisco area and is interested in participating in studies related to lipodystrophy, there are two studies currently recruiting volunteers.  One is a study of leptin and the other is a study of IGF1.  Potential participants will have to be screened for both studies, and both will require a fairly substantial time commitment.  As I understand it, participants will have three separate five-day hospital stays (at least for the leptin study) at months 1, 3, and 6.

If folks are interested, I can provide contact information.

Hello Bobino:

   I am interested.  Previously I contacted these people and was told that you had to have a dexascan and a bunch of x-rays.  I didn't want the radiation exposure and shunned the study.  However, I would like some contact information for the study as well as the name of the company that is doing their laboratory work for Blood Serum Leptin.
