The data contained in the adjoining file are derived from the Pittsburgh Cold Study 2 (PCS2), a prospective viral challenge study conducted from 1997-2001 among healthy volunteers ages 18-54 (mean 28.9; SD 10.4). PCS2 received primary funding from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH R01 MH50429, Social Support, Stress and Susceptibility to Infection) and secondary funding from a National Institutes of Health grant awarded to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center General Clinical Research Center (NIH 5M01 RR00056).

PCS2 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)
