PEORIA — OSF HealthCare Illinois Neurological Institute is looking for healthy volunteers to participate in a study investigating a new kind of stroke treatment.

Participation could help start the process for approval of a new product by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration which may help improve stroke care.

Participants must:

• Be 18 to 55 years old

• Be in healthy condition and on no medications

• Have a normal Body Mass Index, which is a measure of body fat based on height and weight.

• Be a non-smoker for at least the last six months, including cigarettes, cigars, smokeless tobacco, nicotine patches and vaping

• Refrain from consuming alcohol and caffeine two days before the study period begins and up to eight days after it ends

• Be available for admission to the hospital for two full days and nights during investigational product dosing, lab testing, ECG testing and monitoring
