Researchers at the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology are seeking volunteers who are generally healthy and plan to be exposed to mice for the first time in the near future.
The purpose of the study is to find out more about how immune cells react with allergens from mice. Understanding these basic mechanisms of interaction will lead to better therapies for allergy sufferers and improve specific immunotherapy treatments (SIT).
Eligible participants must be at least 18 years of age and plan to be exposed to mice. Participation will consist of two study visit to provide a standard blood donation by a certified phlebotomist.
The first appointment will occur before one is exposed to mice and the second appointment can take place 2 months after the exposure to mice begins. They also may ask questions regarding medical history. As well as assisting in scientific research and helping advance human health, participants may be compensated up to $100 for their time and effort.
