Vascular Dilation clinical trials at University of California Health
2 research studies open to eligible people
Are you a man between 60 and 80 years old? Help us learn about how strawberries influence your health!
“We are inviting older men to participate in a study about the vascular health effects of strawberries.”
open to eligible males ages 60-80
The overall objective of this proposed trial is to examine the vascular protective effects provided by the daily consumption of 39g of freeze dried strawberry powder (FDSP) for four weeks. The study population will be older men (60-80 years of age).

open to eligible males ages 30-50
This study aims to obtain data on the potential influence of Vine to Bar product(s) containing Chardonnay marc on cardiometabolic health. These initial studies will inform the design and timing of data collection for future dietary intervention trials that will examine the influence of Chardonnay marc intake on outcomes/biomarkers of both cardiometabolic health and the gut microbiome. This includes collecting data on the potential differences in response to the products based on the unique food matrix for each of the products that will be tested. Moreover, as there is a paucity of data on the influence of cocoa flavanol intake on vascular function beyond 4 hours post intake, the response of the selected outcomes will be assessed after 6 hours of flavanol intake. This is a time point that captures the increased circulating presence of microbial derived flavanol metabolites.
