  • Gender: Male or Female

To determine if you fully qualify, it will be necessary to obtain blood samples after a 10- hour fast[f1] . You have the option of fasting for the screening appointment, or, you may return at a later date. You may need to provide medical records to participate in this study. For more information, see below.

Qualified participants may be compensated up to $4,300 for time and travel. 

If you are able to answer “YES” to the following statements, you may qualify for this study. 

  • I am a healthy adult, meaning no significant medical conditions. 
  • I am between 18 and 55 years old.
  • My BMI is between ≥ 18.0 and ≤ 32.0 kg/m2  and I weigh between 99 lbs. and 220 lbs. inclusive.

(NOTE: No restrictions are required for a vasectomized male provided his vasectomy has been performed 4 months or more prior to study start. A male who has been vasectomized less than 4 months prior to study start must follow the same restrictions as a non‑vasectomized male.

  • I do not have tattoos or scarring on or near the abdominal site of the subcutaneous injection.

  • I do not have a history or presence of any clinically significant local infection (e.g., cellulitis, abscess) or systemic infection (e.g., septicemia) within 3 months prior to screening.

  • I tolerate oral medication well.
  • I have not had problems having blood drawn in either arm, venous access or finger pricks.

It is important to understand that even if you feel that you meet all the above criteria, you are still required to complete the protocol screening procedures. Frequently, subjects do not qualify because of medical history or minor changes in vital signs, ECG and lab tests. Scheduling a screening appointment does not guarantee that you will qualify for that study. Additionally, subjects are screened on a first come-first served basis and studies may complete enrollment prior to your visit. Additionally, no guarantees can be made regarding group assignments for any particular study. ICON will not assume any liability for lost time, travel or failure to qualify.

To determine if you fully qualify, it will be necessary to obtain blood and urine  samples after a 10-hour fast.  You have the option of fasting for a blood or urine sample at the screening appointment, or, you may return at a later date for us to obtain these samples. 

If you fast, you should refrain from eating or drinking anything (with the exception of water) for 10 hours before your appointment. We will be testing for tobacco and drug abuse. Please refrain from consuming alcohol at least 24 hours prior to your screening appointment. 

Be sure to bring all of your medications with you to your screening appointment. 

Please note, you need to bring a valid, non-expired photo ID and your Social Security Card with you when you attend your screening visit. We accept a government issued identification card such as a driver's license, state issued ID card, or passport. Also, be advised that we cannot accept a military ID as we are legally prohibited from copying that form of identification for our records.

You will be filling out paperwork for the study. Please arrive at least 30 minutes in advance of your screening appointment. If you are late for your appointment you may not be seen or may need to reschedule.

Be advised that you may need to provide medical records as part of the screening process for this study. If possible, please bring your full medical records with you to your screening appointment. If you cannot bring your records with you, you must provide them before you can admit to the study. Note that full medical records include surgical reports. You will not be allowed to participate in the study without medical records defined as:

  • All medical records, including but not limited to: office notes, face sheets, history and physical, consultation notes, inpatient, outpatient and emergency room treatment, all clinical charts, reports, surgical reports, order sheets, progress notes, nurse's notes, social worker records, clinic records, treatment plans, admission records, discharge summaries, reports of consultations, documents, correspondence, test results, statements, questionnaires/histories, from your medical provider(s).
