Dr. Chris Payne (Stanford University) is currently conducting a clinical trial on the use of Botox as a treatment for IC and is looking for patients who might want to try this new, potential treatment for IC! If you are interested, please contact his research coordinator Patricia Glowe at 650-498-4240. She will conduct a screening interview over the phone with you to determine if you qualify.

Also, Dr. Payne's patients in California should take note that he will be taking a one year sabbatical beginning Sept 2011 to conduct research on obstetric complications in Africa. He will stop taking new patients this summer and his regular patients are being assigned to two excellent nurse practitioners while he is away!
