Clinical Trial 45388

Chapel Hill, NC 27599



The University of North Carolina is trying to better understand how female reproductive hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone, impact eating behaviors in people who may experience certain types of unhealthy eating habits such as binge eating. With your help, we can learn how changes in hormones might lead to binge eating.

  • Are 18-35 years of age

  • Are not currently taking birth control 

Qualified Participants May Receive:

  • up to $900 at the end of the study
  • a free medical exam and blood work
  • all study participants will recieve a personal report about how their eating behaviors change in response to hormones
