Description

The data contained in the adjoining file are derived from the Pittsburgh Mind-Body Center Cold Study (PMBC), a prospective viral challenge study conducted from 2000-2004 among healthy volunteers ages 21-55 (mean 37.2; SD 8.8). PMBC received primary funding from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI P01 HL65111 and P01 HL65112, Mind-Body Center: Understanding Shared Psychobiological Pathways, Project 1: Psychobiological Pathways: Risk for Respiratory Illness); supplemental funding from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Socioeconomic Status & Health; and secondary funding from a National Cancer Institute grant awarded to the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (NCI P30CA047904). These data are being made available as part of the Common Cold Project, a data aggregation project supported by a grant from the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH R01 AT006694-01, Social Ties and Health: Aggregating Data from Five Viral-Challenge Trials). PMBC study documentation including details of measures used to collect the data and how variables were created can be obtained from the Common Cold Project website (www.cmu.edu/common-cold-project)
