NCCIH Clinical Digest: Dietary Supplements and Eye Conditions
This issue of Clinical Digest focuses on current research findings for the use of dietary supplements for eye conditions. Many people turn to dietary supplements to prevent or slow the progression of certain eye diseases, such as cataract, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.

Are you a researcher who’s planning to submit an NIH application for natural products clinical research? Have you heard about NCCIH’s new approach to funding clinical trial research?
NCCIH has developed a new series of funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) specifically for investigator-initiated clinical trials. They focus on natural product studies and mind and body intervention studies. In this blog post, I will explain how our FOAs will support researchers making discoveries in natural product clinical research.

As a program director at NCCIH, I frequently talk with investigators about the process of intervention development and the importance of pilot studies in this process. NCCIH has developed a Framework for Developing and Testing Mind and Body Interventions for our investigators to follow.
