Seeking women for paid iron deficiency anemia study

The Johns Hopkins Center for Restless Legs Syndrome and Center for Sleep Disorders are looking for women age 18 or older who have iron deficiency anemia to participate in a clinical study. This study seeks to provide better treatment options for women with iron deficiency anemia and restless legs syndrome, as well as discover potential genetic risk factors that may predispose women to have sleep-related issues.

Do you have any of the following symptoms?

  • Difficulty concentrating, poor attention, difficulty with multitasking
  • Fatigue or lack of energy to do normal activities
  • Insomnia or nonrefreshing sleep

Do you have restless legs syndrome?

  • Are you aware of any uncomfortable sensation in your legs?
  • Do these sensations occur primarily when trying to sit in the evening or trying to sleep at night?
  • Do you get relief, even temporarily, if you move the legs or get up and walk?

If you have iron deficiency anemia and some of the symptoms mentioned above, you may be eligible for the study, which will last about one year. Participants can earn up to $900 by participating in it.
