including a blood draw.​

There is no cost to participate in the study.​
You will not receive any benefit from participation in this study, other than contributing to research.​

here is additional information i have re the study:

1. can't have been a participant in what stanford calls Montoya's "big blood draw study (GEISD)."
2. must live in "local bay area counties." santa cruz and sonoma counties are ok.
3. can't be on ritxan or ampligen.
4. can't have been on antibiotics for more than 2 weeks in the past 3 months. can't have been on antirvirals for more than 2 weeks in the past year. can't have been on either in the past 30 days. so, e.g., if you have taken antibiotics or antivirals for 10 days (i.e., less than 2 weeks) within the past 30 days ago, you are out. hope that makes sense.

It would be nice to FINALLY get the results from the study I am already in, before jumping in to another one. It's been over TWO YEARS and they are still not done.

I called Jane Norris several weeks ago regarding the study. She said they were recruiting 12 (maybe she said 15) more participants for the study.

One additional exclusion criteria: Can't be over 72 years of age.

It seems odd to be adding only 15 more people. Hopefully, it will finally bring it to a close cause I know all of you involved have got to be anxious. For that fact we are all anxious!!!
