The Sleep Medicine and Research Center at St. Luke's Hospital in
Chesterfield, MO is conducting a clinical research study in blind people who
have a condition called "Non-24-Hour Sleep Wake Disorder". This condition,
which is often undiagnosed, may occur in blind people who do not receive the
light signals necessary to keep a 24-hour "body clock". This can lead to
insomnia or daytime sleepiness. Adults 18-75 years old who are blind with
no light perception and who experience difficulty sleeping at night or
daytime sleepiness may be eligible to participate in this 9-month study of
an investigational medication. There is no cost for participation.
Transportation to study appointments is available. For more information,
call the Sleep Medicine and Research Center at 314-542-4816.
I might also add there will be conpensation for participating in this study.
