INFORMATIONAL: Healthy Participants 18-44 Needed for study of Muscle and Jaw Function

submitted by Oppera on Tuesday, October 16 at 12:45 PM

The UNC Center for Neurosensory Disorders is conducting a research study investigating the biological, psychological, and genetic factors that may cause Temporomandibular Muscle and Joint Disorder (TMJD). We are looking for healthy volunteers and people with TMJD to participate.

Participation will include 1 clinic appointment lasting 3 hours. During that time participants fill out various questionnaires and receive a clinical exam and sensory testing. Individuals who meet the study criteria will complete brief health updates for the next 4-5 years.
You must be between the ages of 18 and 44, and not have diabetes, epilepsy, hyperthyroidism, drug or alcohol abuse, chronic respiratory diseases, high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney failure and have not required hospitalization for a psychiatric disorder within the last 6 months.
You should not participate if you are pregnant, nursing a baby, currently involved in orthodontic treatment, chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
People who complete all data collection aspects will be paid $260 (this includes $90 for the clinic appointment mentioned above).
For more information about the study, visit the website at http://www.oppera.org
Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about our study (Biomedical IRB number 05-DENT-777).
If interested or for further information please contact: (919) 966-1060
Approved by the Biomedical IRB

You receive a $90 check at your first visit.
Then different amounts when you complete a series of surveys.

Which totals to $260.
Please call for more information.
