|Lysine Requirement in Elderly Female Subjects||Dietary Supplement: Lysine intake provided as a milkshake||Not Applicable|
Currently there are no studies on lysine requirement in the elderly.
The goal of this study therefore is to measure the lysine requirement of female elderly subjects 65-75 years using the IAAO technique.
