Want to help but do not have the time to make a long commitment?
If yes, then read below and find out how you can help those with lupus today!
The Lupus Alliance of LIQ will be working with SeraTrials, a local biotechnology company that partners with major Pharmaceutical and Diagnostic companies for the development of diagnostic assays and biological drug development.
Sera Trials requires control blood samples from donors, not currently involved in any dosing studies. These blood samples will be identified only by a unique identification number, donor privacy will be strictly protected.
Sera Trials is currently looking for participants who are willing to have their blood drawn at their Long Island offices, in order to help further research into the cause and cure of lupus, as well as new lupus medications. Each participant will receive $25.00 for their time. These ARE NOT clinical trials, there are no medications to take, and you will only need to have your blood drawn once. If you are unable to come to one of their L.I. locations, they can send a mobile phlebotomist to your home instead.
In order to participate, please fill out and return the form below to us in the enclosed return envelope and you will be contacted by a Sera Trials representative in order to begin the process of signing up to be a donor. This will include filling out the limited medical release form and setting up a time and date for your appointment. Each participant will be required to fill out a simple registration form including your doctor’s name and phone number, list of current medications taken and your vital statistics. At this time, they are only looking for lupus patients to participate in these blood draws.
The Lupus Alliance of LIQ will receive a stipend from Sera Trials for each person we refer to their company for this program. This money will be used to support research as well as help fund our educational and awareness programs.
If you participate you will not only be helping yourself and everyone who has lupus get that much closer to better medications and treatments for lupus, but you will also be helping us reach out to those who need our help in your neighborhoods.
