Study Summary

This trial tests the effects of probenecid, given as a single 2g dose, on alcohol intoxication in humans. The trial is double-blind, meaning that neither the participants nor the staff administering the drug will know who is receiving probenecid or placebo. The study is also placebo-controlled, meaning that a group of participants will receive a placebo (a 'sugar pill') instead of probenecid.
