Omics4Aging: Stratification of Frailty Population


Brief description of study

The overall objective of the study is to stratify a frailty population based on nutrients profiling (amino acids, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids) and metabolic profiling (low molecular weight metabolites in urine and plasma) at baseline.

Detailed Study Description

This exploratory study will investigate ways to better characterize the frailty phenotype by a combination of i) geriatric assessment (here only: frailty criteria according to Fried), ii) clinical surrogate markers (including those of inflammation), iii) body composition, iv) nutritional profiling, v) metabolite profiling using a metabolomics approaches.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT02572063
