Role of Interleukin-1 in the Regulation of Muscle Derived Interleukin-6 During Exercise
This is a randomized placebo-controlled, double blind, cross-over, proof-of-concept study.
The study will consist of one screening visit followed by 3 study visits. During the first
two study visits, the subjects (20 apparently healthy, lean men) will perform a submaximal
exercise bout on a treadmill for 60 minutes. Subjects will be randomly assigned into two
groups consisting each of 10 subjects receiving study medication in a double-blinded,
crossed over manner.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Basic Science
