Volunteer for a Clinical Research Study

More than 250,000 people worldwide, including 36,000 people in the United States, die from influenza (flu) or complications of the flu each year. Although flu medications are available, there is a need for additional, more-targeted treatments. Finding new treatments is the focus of this research study. We are seeking healthy volunteers for a new research study at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that will evaluate the safety of an investigational medication called AVI-7100. This medication is thought to stop the flu virus from making copies of itself in the body.
