Study participants needed for a trial on the health of the heart and blood vessels and a trial seeking to help prediabetic overweight and obese individuals
Are you 30 to 65 years old, overweight or obese, and have pre-diabetes? NIH obesity researchers want to learn how well a medication called roflumilast improves blood sugar levels in overweight and obese adults who are not diabetic but who have high fasting blood sugar levels ("pre-diabetes"). Compensation is provided for participation. (Study # 13-H-0123)
NIH researchers are seeking healthy volunteers 55 to 75 years old for a study about the effects of omega-3 oil and blackcurrant supplementation on heart health. Participants will have four outpatient visits over 24 weeks and take omega-3 oil and/or blackcurrant supplement. Compensation is provided. (Study # 14-NR-0034)
