- Brief summaryGenerally healthy elderly volunteers will be asked to participate in this study, which is designed to examine the effect of protein quantity in an oral nutritional supplement on muscle protein synthesis in elderly. Amino acid tracer methodology is applied to measure muscle protein synthesis in the fasted state and after bolus intake of one of two oral nutritional supplements. Muscle biopsies will be taken at two time points to determine the incorporation of the amino acid tracer in the muscle as a measure of protein synthesis. At various time points blood samples will be taken for analyses of amino acid, glucose and insulin levels.
