What happens at a screening visit?


We will measure height, weight, waist circumference,  blood pressure, and collect a blood and urine sample.

These measurements will help us determine if volunteers meet the study criteria.

Many studies have Body Mass Index (BMI) restrictions, a ratio of weight to height.  Click here to view a BMI chart.


What is the next step?


We will mail your blood and urine lab results back to you along with a letter that states if you are eligible or ineligible to participate in the study. We will call you at that time if you have been selected to participate. If you have not been selected, you will receive a letter in the mail.
