Condition glucose intolerance
Sponsor Yale University
Start date January 2002
End date June 2003
Trial size 46 participants
Trial identifier NCT00589355, 12110


The goal of this study is to determine whether markers of vascular inflammation (such as c-reactive protein) can predict endothelial dysfunction (as measured by flow-mediated dilation) in postmenopausal women with glucose intolerance compared to normal controls.
