    Apparently, as a joke, someone put my name on a clinical trials list and I've been getting calls the last few months with offers for taking part in them.

    I don't think I would ever do it unless I was real desperate for cash.

    Has anyone ever taken part or would you take part in one?

    I had about 5 call so far, but 3 just left messages. Two actually caught me when I was home.

    One was for some kind of Pet-scan trial up in Hartford, Connecticut. I didn't discuss it much with her, but she gave me a url that would give me more info. Didn't check it out.

    The other one I spoke to would not give any information over the phone once I told her I didn't remember signing up to any clinical trial list.
