Participants sought: Does diet influence inflammatory markers in the blood?

High fibre food is part of the study
Are you healthy and interested in the latest dietary research? We are investigating how dietary fibre and orally ingested vinegar may influence inflammatory markers in the blood. Dietary fibre is used by the gut bacteria to produce small molecules that may have anti-inflammatory effects in the blood. Vinegar is also a source of one of these small molecules, acetate. We are interested to see if an increase in acetate levels in the blood could change the activity of immune cells in the blood. Participants would be provided with high and low fibre diets as well as a small amount of vinegar to drink.

You maybe suitable for this study conducted by the Department of Gastroenterology, Monash University if you:
  • are between 18 and 65 years old
  • are in good health
  • do not have any recent history of inflammatory disease
  • do not have any special dietary needs
  • are not pregnant or planning a pregnancy
