Adult and Juvenile Myositis

This study will evaluate subjects with adult- and childhood-onset myositis to learn more about their causes, and the immune system changes and medical problems associated with them. Myositis is an inflammatory muscle disease that can damage muscles and other organs, resulting in significant disability.

Inherited Reproductive Disorders Study

The goal of this study is to learn more about the body’s regulation of puberty and reproduction. Scientists will study people who have an abnormality in certain hormone levels, which may result in specific differences in fetal development, irregular timing of puberty, or abnormal fertility.

Inflammatory Response to DNA Damage

The gene p53 suppresses cancer and inflammation in the body, and NIEHS researchers speculate that changes in p53 lead to changes in inflammation and the ability to repair DNA damage. This study wants blood samples from participants to find out how the changes in p53 lead to these conditions.
  • Status: Open
  • Sex: Both
  • Age: 18 - 45

Inflammatory Response to Endotoxin

Innate immunity is the process by which white blood cells and other parts of the immune system sense and respond to potential infections by causing an inflammation. Researchers are interested in studying how the body responds to certain environmental factors, and whether the body’s response can contribute to chronic illnesses or diseases such as asthma and certain types of cancer.
