Tufts Study Seeking Participants

Do you live near the Boston area? Willing to participate in a study evaluating a therapeutic mouthwash? If so, check out this information posted yesterday to a Sjogren's Syndrome message board:

Hi Sjogrens community.

I had a visit with my oral medicine specialist, Dr. Athena Papas at Tufts dental in Boston yesterday. Dr. Papas has been at the helm of the Biotene challenge to get the company to make the product suitable for those of us with dry mouths. Last October she flew to England to personally meet with the reps from the company. Now the long awaited response is in action. Dr. Papas is heading the research to develop a high quality product which will work for us. To complete the required research phase she needs to sign up 110 participants. She only has 30 and the clock is ticking. Please go to this link and volunteer. (Your parking is paid by the study)

Dr. Papas is a specialist in oral medicine and understands well the issues Sjogrens patients experience.

Thank you,
A Sjogren's patient (and have no interest in this study other than as a consumer myself)
