Healthy Volunteers Needed for Liver Disease Study!

Healthy Volunteers Needed for Liver Disease Study!

Overview

Are you between the ages of 18-80 and are in overall good health?     WE NEED YOUR HELP!
 
Researchers at the Indiana University School of Medicine are looking for healthy volunteers with normal liver functions to take part in a study to help determine the safety and effectiveness of a new investigational drug called Saroglitazar.
 
Liver impairment or disease may change how a drug would normally work in the human body. The blood levels of participants with liver disease will be compared to participants with normal liver functions to see how this drug is processed by the liver in the body.
