Periodontal Impact of Eating Disorders (the PERIOED Study)

Eating disorders have been associated with poor oral health. However, the relationship between eating disorders and periodontal diseases is less-established. Participants will be periodontally assessed using a full-mouth clinical evaluation.

Phase N/A

Homeostatic and Non-homeostatic Processing of Food Cues in Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia nervosa (AN) is an eating disorder with high morbidity and lifetime mortality. This eating disorder is mainly characterized by restricted food intake despite a severely low body weight. Given the pronounced self-starvation in AN, the investigation of homeostatic food processing, and its interaction with the reward system is of ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy Study of an Olfactory Stimulation Program for the Recuperation of Autobiographical Memories in Anorexia

The purpose of this study is to estimate the impact of an olfactive stimulation, in relaxing environment, on the access at the autobiographical memories in anorexic patients.

Phase N/A

Outcomes of a Skill-Based Program for Eating Disorders

This study aims to measure the effect of a neurobiologically-guided intensive family based treatment for adults with anorexia nervosa.

Phase N/A

Estrogen Replacement in Anorexia Nervosa

While there is broad knowledge on the disruption of appetite regulation, neurocognitive deficits in AN patients, the impact of cortisol on neurocognitive performances in patients with AN and the effects of estrogen on neurocognitive features in healthy subjects, up to now, no study has implemented estrogen replacement in AN patients, ...

Phase

Microbiome-mediated Weight Anxiety and Stress Dysregulation in Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia nervosa (AN), a psychiatric disorder characterized by extreme weight dysregulation commonly presents with comorbid anxiety. Therapeutic renourishment in AN is based primarily on clinical opinion and guidelines, with a weak evidence base. Compelling data implicate the intestinal microbiota in the regulation of adiposity and behavior, providing a strong rationale ...

Phase N/A

Microbiome Shifts in Adolescent Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia Nervosa (AN) has the highest mortality of all psychiatric disorders. Large part of all patients the disorder becomes chronical. Until now, no (bio-) markers which allow a prognosis of outcome are known. Recently the function of the intestinal microbiome and its effects on food uptake, immunological processes and barrier ...

Phase N/A

Drug Transport in Patients With Anorexia Nervosa

The aim of this study is to investigate whether patients with anorexia nervosa have elevated plasma cholesterol levels and, if elevated plasma cholesterol levels influence drug transport by the ABC-transporter P-gp (P-glycoprotein, MDR 1/ABCB1). We will isolate peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and total RNA from the blood of patients ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Anorexia Nervosa on Peak Bone Mass

Given the increasing prevalence of AN, its profound consequences on bone health, and lack of optimal treatment interventions, these studies will provide critical data needed to identify optimal treatment strategies for this severe co-morbid disease using state- of- the- art endpoints of BMD, bone microarchitecture and strength. Although both low ...

Phase

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 ...
