Study Completion Date: May 2002
Detailed Description:

Volunteers for the study will be recruited through advertisements. Each volunteer will have received an information sheet concerning the study and will have agreed to participate in writing.

Volunteers will be given at least 48 hours between reading the information leaflet and agreeing to participate. Female volunteers will have a pregnancy test prior to enrollment. Volunteers will give signed consent for their GP’s to be notified about their participation in the trial.
