Healthy Volunteers Wanted for Dr Andrew McClean's Research Project "Why do patients with ANCA Associated Vasculitis Experience Fatigue?"

Are there any Healthy people out there who are willing to take part in Dr Andrew McClean's research project. "Fatigue in ANCA Associated Vasculitis"

They MUST be healthy (high BP or cholesterol is fine, but no major illness), white British, and as close to 60ish as possible. Andrew still wants more vasculitis sufferers too, but his main focus at this moment, is getting as many healthy controls as possible. Please message me or send John an email if you know of someone or your son/daughter/partner/spouse has Vasculitis and you would like to take part in Andrew's research at the Birmingham University Hospital.

Andrew is trying to cover all ages/enthic groups/male/female in his research but he has to match the Vasculitis patients with the healthy people age for age. female for female, male for male, enthnic origin for enthnic origin. Andrew is just falling short of healthy white 60ish year olds just at this moment but he will be looking for other groups as the research progresses.

I am pleased you wrote that statement because I was immediately offended by Andrews request for voulunteers. Aud

It did sound a bit strange I know, we knew what Andrew was doing so I only wrote what was in the email. I think I will write the blog again. Thank you for pointing this out. :-)

I presume this would involve going to Birmingham, have you any idea how often would be involved, as it would be a 2 1/2 hour trip for me, but I'm 60 white female with husband with WG.

If you write an email to John jandsmills@btinternet.com he will explain the procedure and then pass your details on to Andrew, if you think you might be able to take part. yes it will be at Birmingham maybe one full day or two half days.

Thank you
