Collect DNA from well-characterized healthy volunteers. DNA will be used to identify and determine allele frequencies of genetic variants in membrane transporters and other genes relevant to human disease or drug response, including drug metabolizing enzymes, collagen, race/ethnicity, neurovascular disease, asthma/allergy/lung disease, and cardiovascular disease. This phase of the study will serve as the hypothesis-generating phase for future studies by identifying genetic variants and determining allele frequencies among an ethnically diverse cohort of healthy volunteers. Future investigations (separate IRB applications) will attempt to correlate genotypes to phenotypes among this cohort of volunteers. The allele identification and frequency data from this group of healthy volunteers will also be used to design association studies in relevant disease populations.
Determine if identified sequence variants are associated with gain or loss of in vitro biologic function using lymphocytes obtained from patients.

Persons with no known significant health problems who are recruited to participate in research to test a new drug, device, or intervention as controls for a patient group. (from http://clinicalcenter.nih.gov/recruit/volunteers.html, accessed 2/14/2013)
Hospital or other institutional ethics committees established to consider the ethical dimensions of patient care. Distinguish from ETHICS COMMITTEES, RESEARCH, which are established to monitor the welfare of patients or healthy volunteers participating in research studies.
Human experimentation that is not intended to benefit the subjects on whom it is performed. Phase I drug studies (CLINICAL TRIALS, PHASE I AS TOPIC) and research involving healthy volunteers are examples of nontherapeutic human experimentation.
Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.
Governmental guidelines and objectives pertaining to public food supply and nutrition including recommendations for healthy diet and changes in food habits to ensure healthy diet.
DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule. During DNA sequencing, the bases of a small fragment of DNA are sequentially identified from signals emitted as each fragment is re-synthesized from a ...
