  Purpose

The investigators are studying a dietary supplement called anatabine in a lozenge form named RCP006. The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of this dietary supplement on normal human inflammatory function. The investigators will see this effect in volunteers who have markers of higher levels of inflammation to begin with. The investigators anticipate that anatabine will reduce markers of inflammation. Therefore the investigators are looking for volunteers with high blood levels of C-reactive Protein (CRP) and will monitor the blood CRP levels at several time points throughout the study.

    Other Name: RCP006
Detailed Description:

The investigators are studying a dietary supplement called anatabine which for the purposes of this study has been made into lozenges and named RCP006. Anatabine, the only active ingredient of RCP006, occurs throughout the world in the human food chain. Anatabine has been in the human food supply and in human use for centuries. Humans are exposed to anatabine in tobacco products and common and widely consumed food crops such as potatoes, peppers, eggplants and tomatoes. The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of this dietary supplement on normal human inflammatory function. Compounds that are chemically similar to anatabine have been shown to reduce inflammatory responses, and laboratory studies show anti-inflammatory properties for anatabine. The investigators want to explore this further in human studies to see if anatabine can maintain normal levels of inflammatory function. The investigators will see this effect more easily if the investigators look at the effects of anatabine in volunteers who have markers of higher levels of inflammation to begin with. The investigators anticipate that anatabine will reduce markers of inflammation. To look for inflammation the investigators will test blood levels of a protein called C-reactive protein. C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein found in the blood, the levels of which rise in response to inflammation. Therefore the investigators are looking for volunteers with high blood levels of CRP and will monitor the blood CRP levels at several timepoints throughout the study. The investigators will also collect blood samples to measure other indicators of inflammation, and to measure blood levels of anatabine.
