60-70 years old.

Number of subjects per group

b) We would have 10 participants per group. Group 1: Control group, 0mg Group 2: 1mg Group 3: 2 mg Group 4: 3mg Group 5: 4 mg Group 6: 5 mg Group 7: 6 mg Group 8: 7 mg Group 9: 8 mg Group 10: 9mg

Subject Selection

3. Subjects will be volunteers from nursing homes, patients varying from 60-70 years old living in the AZ area. We will disclose the possible effects of the inflammation inducing agent (lipopolysaccharide). They will be asked to fill out a volunteer sheet agreeing to the conditions.
