• Laboratory Evaluation of Neuropathic Pain
Are you healthy and between 50 and 59 years old?
We seek men and women to participate as healthy controls (comparison group) for a
diabetes research study. You must have never had diabetes. This study involves a single
visit to the Mass General hospital during which you will have a glucose tolerance test to
screen for diabetes. Recent normal results of this test can be used instead. You will also
have two small punch skin biopsies removed from your lower leg under local anesthesia.
Payment for participation is offered. For more information, please contact one of our
study staff of The Nerve Injury Unit at 617-726-9391 or email us at
NerveUnit@partners.org.
