Are there risks or side effects?

There may be known and unknown risks and potential side effects
while participating in research. Before deciding to volunteer, you will be

guidelines set forth by the FDA Good Clinical Practices. All of our studies are
monitored by the UCSD Human Research Protections Program and the VA
