Gastric bypass surgery may increase the risk of calcium oxalate kidney stones and having a bacterium in our intestines that degrade oxalate may reduce the risk of forming kidney stones. For this study, adult Volunteers ages 18-75 are needed to examine whether or not individuals with a history of bariatric surgery can be successfully colonized with Oxalobacter formigenes, a normal gut oxalate degrading bacterium, and if colonization results in a decrease in urinary oxalate excretion. This study involves consuming prepared meals of your choice over 2 days twice, a one-hour long visit to the Clinical Research Enterprise (CRE) and providing stool and urine samples. Compensation up to $420. For more information email kidneystoneresearch@uabmc.edu.

The purpose of this research study is to better understand the long-term effects of COVID-19, and who is at greatest risk of having long-term effects. We will do this by studying people with, and without, a history of COVID-19 over several years. This is part of a nation-wide research initiative called RECOVER. If you are interested contact COVID-19research@uabmc.edu

This study will last up to four years and will involve doing in-person visits every 6 months and filling out an online questionnaire from home every 3 months. At the first study visit you will be asked a series of questions or fill out a questionnaire about who you are (such as age, sex, or race), medical conditions that may affect the chances of having long-term effects of COVID-19, whether you have been vaccinated against COVID-19, and any symptoms you currently have. You will have a brief medical exam and we will also collect samples of your blood, saliva, stool, nasal swab and urine. Some participants will be invited for additional medical examinations and tests. You will be compensated.
