Muscle Malonyl Coa Biomarker Assay Development

2014-08-27 03:18:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Biopsies of the outer thigh muscle and serum samples will be collected from untreated healthy subjects. These biological samples will be provided to the Diabetes Research Unit Translational Biomarker Laboratory for use in developing and validating human muscle malonyl CoA and serum malonate biomarker assays.

Description

This non-drug method study was terminated on November 19, 2009. The decision to terminate was based on safety concerns (biopsy-related pain) observed in the first set of subjects.
