Hormone replacement study needs male volunteers

Healthy males 65 and older are needed for a School of Medicine hormone replacement therapy study.

The study examines the benefits of restoring testosterone and growth hormone to youthful levels to determine if the therapy can improve muscle mass and strength, body fat, physical function and quality of life.

To be eligible, participants must be in stable health and not be performing vigorous exercise more than once a week.

Qualified participants will need to come to the Medical Campus once or twice each month during the 16-week treatment phase and one time 12 weeks after the therapy has ended.

All medical assessments and hormonal supplements are free, and participants will receive compensation for participation.

Eligible participants will be invited to a group orientation session in which the investigators will explain all aspects of the study.
