Volunteers needed for a clinical trial to advance research

2nd February 2015


A team at the University of Birmingham’s School of Cancer Sciences and the CRUK Clinical Trials Unit is looking for volunteers for a study aiming to improve the outcome of stem cell transplantation for blood cancers.

The study is evaluating the use of a vaccine to generate immune cells that may kill blood cancer cells expressing a protein called 'HA-1'.

If you are male, aged ≥ 18 years of age and in good health, please go to ciic.org.uk for more information or contact Shamyla Siddique at HA1@trials.bham.ac.uk Tel: 0121 371 4396.

Participants will be paid compensation for reasonable travel expenses and a payment if they take part. The study will require several short visits to an outpatient clinic in Birmingham. A response to this advertisement will be recorded but carries no obligation to take part. If you volunteer, you can withdraw at any time from the trial.

We hope that the findings will help us to use the information in leukaemia patients in the future.
