Who are we looking for?

We are recruiting male and female individuals between the ages 25-55, who are slightly-to-moderately overweight.

What will you have to do? 

  • Stage 1: A screening visit at the KCL Metabolic Research Unit (MRU). At this visit we will ask you some health questions and take a small blood sample to determine if you meet the criteria for the study.
  • Stage 2: If you meet the study requirements you will be asked to come to the MRU for two further visits.  At each you will have blood samples taken and will be asked to consume a specially prepared breakfast and lunch meal. There will be a 28 day period between visit 1 and 2 during which you will be asked to consume a small yoghurt drink daily for a month (e.g.Proactive which is commonly used to lower cholesterol in the blood).

What do you get?

Upon completing the trial you will receive £100 plus your travel expenses. You will receive results from your health tests, including information about your blood fats and cholesterol levels.

What to do next? 

If you are interested in participating please contact us to receive a more detail study information package and schedule your screening visit to the MRU.
