Clinical Trial Summary

This research study will test the effects of almonds on immune functions and immune response to influenza vaccine in overweight middle-aged men


Clinical Trial Description

The proposed study is a parallel-group, free-living, observer-blind, randomized controlled dietary intervention trial on 54 overweight middle-aged men. This study will be carried out in two phases: Phase 1 will examine the effects of almonds on clinically relevant markers of immune function, and Phase 2 will assess the antibody response to influenza vaccination following almond consumption. Participants will attend a baseline clinic and will be randomized to one of two groups. The Almond group will receive 15% of daily energy intake in the form of almonds as a snack and the Control group will receive an isocaloric carbohydrate-based commercial snack (pretzels). The intervention will be for 12 weeks, at which time both group participants will receive the influenza vaccination, and continue the same dietary intervention for another 16 weeks. ;
