ICON Early Phase Services is conducting a research study for healthy adults ages 18-45. This study is being done to test a potential treatment for botulism. The study drug will be administered by intramuscular injection. 

Vital signs, ECGs, physical examinations and pregnancy, drug and alcohol screens will be performed. Blood and urine samples will also be obtained during this study.


Participants will complete:

  • 1 screening visit
  • 1 day in-clinic
  • 11 outpatient visits

To determine if you fully qualify, it will be necessary to obtain blood samples after an 8- hour fast.  You have the option of fasting for the screening appointment, or, you may return at a later date. If ICON does not have your medical records on file, you will need to provide medical records at screening.
