The purpose of this study is to determine the influence of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) on muscle regeneration.

The investigators' hypothesis is that ingestion of NSAID will delay or impair muscle regeneration.

Condition Intervention
Muscle Damage
Drug: placebo

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: The Influence of Blocking Inflammatory Activity in Vivo on Skeletal Muscle Regeneration in Humans

Further study details as provided by Bispebjerg Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Muscle regeneration [ Time Frame: 1 month ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Muscle strength [ Time Frame: 1 month ]

Enrollment: 32
Study Start Date: April 2009
Study Completion Date: December 2009
Primary Completion Date: December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: NSAID
receive NSAID
Effect of NSAID ingestion on muscle regeneration
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
receive placebo
Drug: placebo
receive placebo

Detailed Description:
The model employed to induce muscle damage is electrical stimulation. Muscle biopsies will be examined to follow the response of satellite cells and muscle regeneration. Study participants will be randomly assigned to a placebo or NSAID group in a double-blinded manner.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 35 Years   (Adult)

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • male
  • healthy
  • does not exercise regularly

Exclusion Criteria:

  • displays contraindications for taking NSAID
  • well-trained
