Clinical studies Appetite study

Gastric emptying time is the time taken for food to leave the stomach and may affect your appetite and satiety. We are looking for healthy normal or overweight male volunteers who are between the age of 20 and 52 to participate in our trial investigating appetite regulation and gastric emptying in a genetic form of obesity called Prader-Willi syndrome. For further information please contact: Alex Viardot (02) 8382 2622 or email (St Vincent’s HREC Ref 15/SVH/437) Prediabetes study Volunteers needed for a study testing blood sugar control in response to diabetes medications or weight loss. We are looking for men and women aged 20-70 years who DO NOT have diabetes, but have an increased risk of developing diabetes (e.g. have had an occasional increased blood sugar, or have had gestational diabetes, or a family history of type 2 diabetes). Study visits are conducted at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and St Vincent’s Hospital, Darlinghurst, Sydney. Principal Investigators: Professor Jerry Greenfield and Dr Dorit Samocha-Bonet.
