Cholesterol Lowering Study Recruiting

Do you worry about cholesterol? NHLBI is looking for healthy volunteers to participate in a 24-week study to determine whether a fiber supplement can lower cholesterol levels. The study involves three outpatient study visits with a physical exam and a diet and exercise assessment. Your cholesterol levels, HDL, LDL and other laboratory markers will be measured to evaluate the effect of this treatment on cholesterol levels. Participants will alternately receive both a fiber supplement and a placebo (a substance that neither helps nor hurts) during the course of the study. You may be eligible if you are 18 or older and are in good health. All study-related tests and medications will be provided at no cost and compensation may be provided.
