The Neuroinflammation, Pain, and Fatigue Lab is looking for women with relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis ages 18-65 for a brain imaging study. The study includes a phone interview and two visits to UAB hospital: one screening visit including blood draws, and one imaging visit, during which we will acquire Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI) of your brain for one hour. PET imaging involves exposure to a small amount of radiation. There will also be questionnaires. You will be paid $400 for completing the study. The purpose of the study is to investigate whether patients with multiple sclerosis have increased brain inflammation compared to healthy people. If interested, please contact Chloe Jones at chloej@uab.edu or P: 205-434-1502, and leave your name and phone number.
There is a new study that will examine the impact of a particular type of intermittent fasting called time-restricted feeding on symptoms of MS, as well as risks of diabetes and high blood pressure in adults with relapsing-remitting MS. The purpose is to see if when you eat might be as important as what you eat. You may be eligible if you have relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis, are between the ages of 18-64 years old, and can walk 25 feet with or without assistance. If you qualify, this study will last 8 weeks and offers an opportunity to be compensated for your participation. If you are interested in learning more about this study, or if have any questions, please contact the project coordinator, Kathryn Green, at 205-319-1424, or email our lab at HBDLab@uabmc.edu
