Cephalic Phase in Anorexia Nervosa Bulimia Nervosa and Obese Binge Eaters

Food stimulation of gastric and pancreatic secretion is classically divided into cephalic, gastric and intestinal phases. Cephalic phase refers to a simultaneous activation of gastrointestinal motility, gastric acid and pancreatic enzyme secretion ,as well as, release of hormones from the endocrine pancreas which occurs through activation of vagal -efferents as ...

IGF-1 and Bone Loss in Women With Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder that can cause thinning of the bones (a decrease in bone density). A significant decrease in bone density is called osteopenia or osteoporosis. Sometimes the loss of bone density can be severe enough to cause breaks and fractures of the bones. It is not ...

Study at the Man of the Profile of Chimiokines in the Anorexia Bound to the Cancerous Cachexy

The syndrome of anorexia-cachexie, which accompanies numerous cancers is a major comorbidity which compromises the forecast of these patients. Several cytokines pro-inflammatory as interleukines IL1 , IL6 or TNFa participate in the physiopathology of this syndrome at the man and the animal. Besides, it is now established that different neuronal ...

Bone Mass Changes in Anorexia Nervosa Patient Followed During 4 Years

The mechanism of bone loss in anorexia nervosa is complex. Marrow adipose tissue seems to play a role in the regulation of bone metabolism. Adipocytes secrete cytokines and adipokines that either stimulate or inhibit adjacent osteoblasts. This study consist to explore the relationship in anorexia nervosa patients with change in ...

Therapeutic Drug Monitoring in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

We aim to analyse in adolescents with mental illness effectiveness, side effects, and serum level concentrations of antipsychotics (olanzapine and aripiprazole), antidepressants (Duloxetine, Atomoxetine) by means of "Therapeutic Drug Monitoring" (TDM) in order to optimize dosage - effect relations and minimize unwanted side effects. Therapeutic drug monitoring is becoming a ...

Evaluation of Brain Opioid Receptor Activity in Anorexia Nervosa : a PET [11C]Diprenorphine Study

The place of opioid system in anorexia nervosa (AN) physiopathology is still unclear. Conflicting results were published on cerebral spinal fluid or peripheral levels in anorexia nervosa. However, no data have been reported on opioid cerebral activity. Diprenorphine is a ligand with non-selective binding to opiate receptors , and capable ...

Pilot Study of Deep Brain Stimulation for Severe Anorexia Nervosa

Our hypothesis, based on prior research, is that DBS to the nucleus accumbens will have beneficial neural and symptomatic effects in severe Anorexia Nervosa. As a pilot test of this hypothesis, and to evaluate acceptability and ethical issues we aim to initially study 3 patients. This pilot study may provide ...

Study of Intestinal Permeability in Patients With Anorexia Nervosa

In healthy humans, the intestinal mucosa acts as an absorption organ and a defensive barrier preventing the passage of toxic substances from the intestinal lumen to the blood stream. Malnutrition and absence of exogenous luminal nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract profoundly affect small bowel morphology and physiology. Many reports have ...
