Aangezien een deel van het onderzoek uitgevoerd wordt door een onderzoeker die geen Nederlands spreekt, zal het gehele onderzoek in het Engels plaatsvinden. Om deze reden kunnen alleen mensen deelnemen die de Engelse taal redelijk tot goed beheersen, en is onderstaande informatie geschreven in het Engels.

We have found enough volunteers to participate in the GLUCAM study.

Animal and human studies state that camel milk is beneficial for people with diabetes. The purpose of the GLUCAM study is to determine if drinking camel milk has a beneficial effect on blood glucose and insulin concentrations compared to drinking cow milk.

The study will take place in December 2011 and January 2012 in "Biotechnion" (Bomenweg 2, Wageningen). The study consists of 4 sessions of 2.5 hours each. The sessions take place in the morning.

During a screening you will fill out a brief questionnaire and have your height, weight and fasting blood sugar measured. Also, you'll have an opportunity to taste camel milk.

For this study we are looking for 20 volunteers (both men and women) who would like to join.

You are eligible for the GLUCAM study when you:

  • are healthy and between 18 and 35 years old
  • have a normal body weight (BMI between 18.5 and 25 kg/m2*)
  • do not smoke tobacco

What we expect from you:

  • 1 screening visit (1 hour)
  • 4 test day visits (2.5 hours each) on which you will have a test drink, 7 finger-pricks will be taken to measure blood glucose concentration and 3 blood samples will be taken via venepuncture

What do you get in return?

  • 5 times breakfast
  • financial compensation of € 100,-
  • you will make an important contribution to scientific research

* You can calculate your BMI by dividing your body weight (in kg) by the square of your body length (in meters):
BMI = weight/(length x length).
