Kalamazoo area residents are invited to participate in an observational study being conducted through the Center for Clinical Research at the Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine. Over the next 3 years, we want to enroll 500 people age 35-55. Each person will get a CT scan of the heart (CCTA) to look for clogging (atherosclerosis) of the arteries and also to assess the calcium built up in the arteries. This is a sign of heart artery blockage (coronary artery disease). The study will be used to help improve care for people with undiagnosed coronary artery disease. It will also look at blood tests that may help assess the risk of having heart artery blockage.
Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet, an international network of researchers exploring ways to prevent and delay the progression of type 1 diabetes, is taking great strides for type 1 diabetes. Screening is the first step in the pathway to prevention. Those at increased risk may be able to join research studies testing ways to prevent and delay the disease.
The Center for Clinical Research at Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine is currently looking for health volunteers to supply blood and urine samples. Qualifying candidates will receive compensation for time and travel and may be eligible for multiple donations.
To be eligible, you must have no significant health problems. Blood and urine from healthy volunteers provides researchers with crucial data which may help further understanding of specific diseases. Research with healthy volunteers is designed to develop new knowledge, not to provide direct benefit to study participants.
