Studies for Either Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes
Volunteers needed in diabetes study
Description: Do you want to contribute to cutting edge research in diabetes? The Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston is conducting a new research study to investigate Induced Pluripotent cells (iPS) in diabetes. Induced pluripotent cells (iPS) are cells that can be grown forever in a laboratory and can become other types of cells. These cells may someday help us to predict who is at risk of developing diabetes, which may lead to a better understanding of the disease process or possible new therapies .
Recruiting: If you are between 18-70 years of age with or without diabetes you may be eligible to participate in the study. Participants will come to the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston 1-2 times, complete a health history and have a brief physical exam, give a sample of blood, urine and a skin biopsy, have cells grown in a laboratory from their skin sample indefinitely for future use.Parking will be covered, although there is no other compensation for participating in this study.
Exclusions include: history of bleeding disorders, and history of irregular heart rhythms.

Do you have pain in your feet, legs, hands, or arms caused by diabetic neuropathy?
Description: Massachusetts General Hospital is conducting a study to investigate whether the drug sulfasalazine is able to reduce pain caused by diabetic neuropathy. Sulfasalazine is an FDA-approved drug for rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease, and pre-clinical research suggests that it may reduce pain due to diabetic neuropathy. This study involves 4 visits to Massachusetts General Hospital over the course of 8 weeks. You will be asked to respond to daily text messages in order to evaluate you pain. Monetary compensation is available for participating in this study..
Recruitment: Individuals 18 years or older who: 1) Have type I or type II diabetes, 2)Have painful diabetic neuropathy, 3) Are not taking long-acting opiods such as MS Contin, Oxycontin, or methadone and 4) Have a cell phone and are willing to send and recieve text messages.

Do you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes? Do you feel full or nauseous after eating?
Description: Do you have type 1 or 2 diabetes? Do you frequently experience symptoms of uncomfortable fullness following a meal? Do you feel full after only a few bites of a meal? Do you experience bloating, nausea/vomiting following a meal or abdominal pain? If so, you may have a condition known as diabetic gastroparesis. The Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is conducting a clinical research study testing in effectiveness of an investigational drug to treat diabetic gastroparesis..
Recruiting: You may be able to participate in this study if you are between 18-70 years old and have type 1 or 2 diabetes. Participants will receive monetary compensation, parking validations for study visits, and study related medication.
