Curcumin/Gingerol Clinical Trial for MDS

There is a clinical trial being conducted at UMass Medical Center for low risk MDS patients.

Here is the link:

I just got back from my annual appointment with my MDS specialist in Toronto, Canada. Good news is that I remain stable so watch and wait continues! My doctor will refer me for this clinical trial but I will have to go there to participate. So, is anyone aware of this clinical trial or actually participating in it.
Does anyone know the particulars if I am accepted into the trial if I am a Canadian......

Female, age 52 - Diagnosed May, 2011 Hypoplastic MDS. Cytogenetics showing 2 abnormalities on chromosome 15. Blasts<5%, IPSS of 1. All blood counts low, but no treatment; watch and wait. Registered for MUD; on Feb. 23/12 two donor matches found but returned since not needed yet!
