Are your shingles gone but the pain continues? Pain that occurs after an outbreak of shingles has healed is called post-herpetic neuralgia. Volunteers are needed to participate in a clinical research study of an investigational medication for the treatment of post-herpetic neuralgia. You may qualify if you are 18 years or older and you are experiencing pain at least three months after your shingles have healed. Research site located in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
People with an invasive fungal infection are asked to participate in a research study being conducted by Long Island Jewish Medical Center. You may be eligible for this study if you are male or female and at least 18 years of age and have an invasive fungal infection that has not responded to other treatments. Research site located in New Hyde Park, NY.
If you have mycosis fungoides type CTCL and haven't had success with other treatments, you may be eligible for this clinical trial. Qualified subjects receive all evaluations and procedures related to the study at no cost, including physical exams, lab tests, ECG, and CT-scan. Blood draws and biopsies will be done periodically.
