Dr. Bennett and the University of South Carolina School of Medicine are conducting a study into Fluoroquinolone (FQ) genetic predispositions.

The study is open to those who in the U.S. who have experienced FQ Toxicity. If you are interested in participating, please send your contact information (name, address, phone #) to acb8@email.sc.edu and please write “FQ Study” in the subject line.

You will receive instructions, a consent form, and a survey to complete. A saliva test kit will then be mailed to you. You will provide your saliva sample, as instructed. Then you will mail the sample back to the university, as instructed.

This is a great opportunity to participate in FQ research.   Unfortunately, only those who live in the U.S. are eligible at this time due to shipping costs.

It was brought to my attention by several individuals that there was some confusion about this study that arose because of messages circulating the internet that could imply Dr. Bennett’s endorsement of non-academic projects.  This is incorrect.   Anyone interest in participating should interact with the valid SC .edu email listed above only and not share their information with any other sources.  If you have any question, do not hesitate to ask.   Thank you.
