Active Studies

The Vaccine Research Group at Mayo Clinic is recruiting volunteers for a study testing immune responses after vaccination.

Immunogenetic mechanisms of measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccination

The Vaccine Research Group is conducting a study to determine immune responses to the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine in individuals with very low or very high antibody responses to the measles component of the MMR vaccine.

Study participation can include up to four visits. At the first visit, you will review and sign the consent form and review your medical history. Blood will be drawn to determine if you are in the high or low measles response group. If you are in one of those two groups and meet all study eligibility criteria, you may return for the remaining visits.

The second visit consists of a blood draw and a single measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccination. The third visit is a follow-up blood draw approximately eight days after the vaccination. The fourth visit is a final follow-up blood draw four weeks after vaccination. Remuneration is offered.
