Title Topic / Condition Location Join A Study
Adult and Juvenile Myositis (Studies in the Natural History & Pathogenesis of Childhood-Onset and Adult-Onset Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathies) This study will evaluate subjects with adult- and childhood-onset myositis to learn more about the cause of the disease and associated immune system changes.Bethesda, MD Study Overview: Adult and Juvenile Myositis
Body Weight & Puberty Study (Investigating the Impact of Obesity on Pubertal Development in Girls) Researchers want to find out if body weight affects when a girl starts puberty

Research Triangle Park, NC

Study Overview: Body Weight and Puberty Study
Cox-2 Gene and the Immune System The COX-2 gene may help decide the balance of cell types that the body makes as part of the immune system.Research Triangle Park, NC Study Overview: Cox-2 Gene and the Immune System
E-Cigs and Smoking Study Researchers are trying to develop new biomarkers of tobacco smoke exposure and e-cigarette use.

Research Triangle Park, NC

Study Overview: E-Cigs and Smoking Study
Immunity Cells in Blood (Innate Immunity Signal Transduction in Human Leukocytes) To investigate the response of immune cells from the bloodstream.

Research Triangle Park, NC

Study Overview: Immunity Cells in Blood
Inflammatory Response to DNA Damage (Effect of SNPs in p53 and p53 Response Elements on the Inflammatory Response to DNA Damage) The study will look at how changes in the tumor suppressor gene p53 lead to changes in inflammation and the ability to repair DNA damage.

Research Triangle Park, NC

Study Overview: Inflammatory Response to DNA Damage
Inflammatory Response to Endotoxin (Effect of Innate Immunity on the Inflammatory Response to Endotoxin) This study will look at how differences in people’s genes may cause differences in their blood cells’ response to exposed environmental factorsResearch Triangle Park, NC Study Overview: Inflammatory Response to Endotoxin
Metabolic Disease (Glucocorticoid Receptor SNPs in Receptor Function and Metabolic Disease) NIEHS Investigators will look at how differences in people’s genes may cause their body to respond in different ways to glucocorticoids. Glucocorticoids are hormones made by the human body that are essential for life but in excess may cause diseases such as obesity and diabetes.

Research Triangle Park, NC

Study Overview: Metabolic Disease
Myositis in Military Personnel (Environmental Risk Factors for the Development of Myositis in Military Personnel) Researchers will compare military personnel with and without myositis to look for common factors that may have led to the disease.Bethesda, MD Study Overview: Myositis in Military Personnel
NHALES Study (Natural History of Asthma with Longitudinal Environmental Sampling) The study will help scientists understand how bacteria and other factors in the environment affect people who have moderate to severe asthma.Research Triangle Park, NC Study Overview: NHALES Asthma Study
Nutrition and Menstrual Cycles (CaREFREE Study: Calorie Restriction, Environment, and Fitness: Reproductive Effects Evaluation) This study intends to understand how nutrition, fitness, and the environment affect women's reproductive cycles.

Research Triangle Park, NC

Study Overview: Nutrition and Menstrual Cycles
Rheumatic Disorders in Siblings (Pathogenic Studies in Families with Twins or Siblings Discordant for Systemic Rheumatic Disorders) The research team will study the genetic and environmental risk factors in the development of autoimmune diseases in twins and same-sex siblings, in which one has the disease and the other does not.Bethesda, MD Study Overview: Rheumatic Disorders in Siblings
RSV Infection and Asthma (TGF-Beta in Asthmatic Epithelial Cell Susceptibility to RSV Infection) NIEHS scientists will explore whether there is a difference in lung cells from healthy and asthmatic participants and how these cells respond to exposure to respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), a very common virus that leads to cold-like symptoms. The study will also evaluate if a protein in lung cells called TGF-Beta increases risk of infection with RSV.

Research Triangle Park, NC

Study Overview: RSV Infection and Asthma
Sample Collection Registry (Sample Collection Registry for Quality Control of Biological and Environmental Specimens and Assay Development and Testing) Researchers are developing a registry of biologic and environmental samples with which to develop and test specific laboratory assays.

Research Triangle Park, NC

Study Overview: Sample Collection Registry
The MYORISK Study (Environmental Risk Factors for the Anti-Synthetase Syndrome) The study will investigate the genetic and environmental risk factors involved in the development of myositis, an autoimmune muscle disease that causes chronic muscle weakness.Bethesda, MD Study Overview: Myorisk Study
