Healthy volunteers to test blood flow

September 22, 2010

Penn State Hershey Heart and Vascular Institute’s Urs A. Leuenberger, M.D., and David M. Proctor, Ph.D., are trying to determine if the temporary expansion of blood volume enhances blood flow to exercising leg muscles. Healthy volunteers between the ages of 20 and 30 or 60 and 75 may be eligible to participate.

Participation includes a blood draw, lung function test, stress test, and cycle exercise tests. Volunteers must not smoke and be able to tolerate moderate exercise on a stationary bicycle.

For more information, call Jessica Mast, R.N., at 717-531-1617.

This research study, IRB 20166, has been approved by the Institutional Review Board, under federal regulations at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Penn State College of Medicine.
