Effect of Malnutrition on the Prognosis in Hemodialysis Patients

Malnutrition is known to affect their prognosis in hemodialysis patients. Furthermore, recent studies indicate that malnutrition is associated with inflammation and atherosclerosis in these patients. In this study we examine the effect of malnutrition and/or inflammation on atherosclerosis and 5-year survival rate in 600 hemodialysis patients.

Nutritional Deficiencies in the Bariatric Patients

Although morbidly obese subjects have larger than regular caloric intake, there is evidence that they suffer from nutritional deficiencies at a higher rate than the general population, probably because they eat mostly "unhealthy food."

Association of Colorectal Cancer With Nutrition Diet Obesity Diabetes Mellitus and Genetic Alterations in Taiwan

This is a two-year hospital-based case control study. In the fist year, we will set up solid database of our laboratory regarding the molecular genetics of colorectal cancer. We will explore the genetic (including APC, k-ras, p53, MSI, etc.) and environmental (including family history, life style, diet, nutritional status, DM, ...

Malnutrition and Inflammation in Dialysis Patients in Taiwan

According to the reports of the United States Renal Data System (USRDS), there is a 25% annual mortality rate with nearly 50% of all reported maintenance hemodialysis (HD) patient deaths attributed to atherosclerosis-related complications. Although traditional risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD) are common in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients, ...

Omics4Aging: Stratification of Frailty Population

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.

Phase N/A

The Nutritional Health for the Elderly Reference Centre Study (NHERC Study)

This is a cross-sectional study. Measurements will be taken at baseline for elderly with normal nutrition (n = 400) and elderly who are at risk of under nutrition (n = 800).. These measurements will be used to examine factors influencing nutritional status and to create a "reference" database for anthropometric ...
