The Human Performance Clinical/Research Laboratory in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at CSU is seeking volunteers to participate in a study investigating the efficacy of two drugs that may help people adjust to high-altitude quickly and prevent them from becoming ill.
Potential participants must be available on Saturdays.
Benefits for study volunteers will include access to information pertinent to body composition and aerobic fitness. This study has the potential to identify strategies to improve physical performance and prevent sickness at altitude. Participants will also receive financial compensation for time spent in the laboratory.
You may be asked to take one or two drugs. You will be asked to spend about six hours at simulated altitude (14,000 ft), and you will be asked to exercise. Participants should not currently be using any illicit drugs, such as cocaine or heroin.
For more information, contact Christopher Bell at (970) 491-3495.
This study has been approved by the CSU Instituitional Review Board (11-3032H).
