Adherence Marker Study - Volunteers Needed

Individuals are being recruited for a study on developing an adherence marker compound for tracking consumption of nutrient supplements.

To qualify for this study:

  • Eligible individuals are healthy non-pregnant, non-lactating women, between 18-45 years of age, with a BMI between 20 and 25 kg/m2, and no history of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, kidney disease, diabetes, liver disease, or gastrointestinal disease.

Participants will receive:

  • Compensation of up to $150 will be provided.

Participation in this study includes:

  • Interested individuals will be prescreened by phone using a prescreening questionnaire; those who may be eligible will be scheduled for an in-person screening visit at the Ragle Human Nutrition Center on the UC-Davis campus.
  • Eligible participants will be enrolled in the study for 6 consecutive days.
  • Participation involves eating a single nutrient supplement that contains one of three adherence marker compounds, and collecting urine and saliva samples the day before eating the supplement, and for two day after eating the supplement. The adherence marker compounds are FDA-approved food additives, or a naturally occurring compound in grapes.
