PEORIA — OSF HealthCare Illinois Neurological Institute is looking for healthy volunteers to participate in a study investigating a new kind of stroke treatment.

Participation could help start the process for approval of a new product by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that may help improve stroke care. Participants must:

Be 18 to 55 years old

Be in healthy condition and on no medications

Have a normal Body Mass Index, which is a measure of body fat based on height and weight.

Be a nonsmoker for at least the last six months, including cigarettes, cigars, smokeless tobacco, nicotine patches and vaping

Refrain from consuming alcohol and caffeine two days before the study period begins and up to eight days after it ends

Be available for admission to the hospital for two full days and nights during investigational product dosing, lab testing, ECG testing and monitoring

All study-related visits, tests and procedures will be provided at no cost. Reimbursement for time and effort will be provided.
