The purpose of this study is to determine the inflammatory response to 20,000 endotoxin units (EU) of CCRE (Clinical Center Reference Endotoxin) inhalation in a cohort of healthy volunteers. Preferably these subjects will have participated in ozone exposure studies, allowing a direct comparison of their responses to both endotoxin and ozone. Additionally, cardiovascular endpoints will be investigated with the CCRE exposure.
