Found (60) clinical trials

Obesity is a growing national health problem that now affects over 35% of Americans and is the leading cause of preventable death. Obesity affects all organ systems and contributes to the cause of a multitude of medical problems such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and sleep apnea [1]. It is defined ...

Phase N/A

Growth and Body Composition in Preterm Infants

OBJECTIVES GENERAL: Evaluate the growth and body composition of VLBW infants upon reaching the corresponding term gestational age (GA) and weight. SPECIFIC: A) Evaluate the longitudinal growth and body composition of VLBW infants from the first week of life and at the corresponding term GA and weight. B) Relate the ...

Phase N/A

Gut Derived Hormones Body Composition and Metabolism in Prader-Willi Syndrome

Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) is the most frequent known genetic disorder of obesity. Hyperphagia is the main barrier to independent living in adults with PWS, and hitherto behavioural restraints and environmental modification are the only effective management measure. The emerging costs for professional care are immense. Thus, there is an urgent ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Rimonabant on Weight Gain and Body Composition in Adults With Prader Willi Syndrome

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of rimonabant, a cannabinoid receptor-1 blocking drug, on the appetite, body weight, body fat and growth hormone level of subjects with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). This will be a double blind placebo controlled clinical trial involving a total of 18 young ...


Predictors of Maternal Weight Gain and Neonatal Body Composition

Obesity is a significant health issue in the United States with 30% of the US population considered obese defined as a body mass index above 30 kg/m2. Obesity is associated with long term health complications including diabetes and cardiovascular disorders. During pregnancy, obesity is associated with an increased risk of ...

Phase N/A

Baseline Sexual Function Cognitive Function Body Composition and Muscle Parameters and Pharmacokinetics of Transdermal Testosterone Gel in Women With Hypopituitarism

The ovaries and the adrenal glands contribute to the daily production of 300 micrograms of testosterone in healthy, menstruating women. The physiologic role of testosterone in women, however, remains poorly understood. Previous studies of testosterone supplementation, largely in surgically or naturally menopausal women, have reported improvements in subjective measures of ...


PR.7 Companion Trial: Effect of Intermittent Versus Continuous Androgen Suppression on Bone Loss and Body Composition

Primary Objectives: 1. To compare CAS and IAS with respect to bone mineral density (BMD): We will determine whether the bone loss associated with long term CAS can be reduced by IAS by evaluation of: 1. BMD, 2. biochemical markers of bone formation/resorption, 3. skeletal relevant events (SRE) (defined as ...


Development and Validation of Multi-nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy for Whole Body Human Applications

The purpose of this study is to develop and refine the techniques for using magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance spectroscopy to understand the composition and function of the human body

Phase N/A

Body Composition and White Adipose Tissue Inflammation

The investigators want to find a better way to predict the risk of having fatty tissue inflammation by using a different approach to finding out body fat composition. In this study, the investigators want to estimate the body fat composition using a DEXA scan. DEXA stands for dual energy X-ray ...

Phase N/A

Evolution of Adipokines and Body Composition in Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients Receiving Tocilizumab Therapy

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease associated with cardiovascular morbidity. Tocilizumab (TCZ), a monoclonal antibody against the interleukin-6 receptor is an effective new biotherapy for the treatment of RA. This treatment is associated with increased LDL and HDL-cholesterol lipid parameters. Adipokines are adipose tissue-specific secreted molecules, which have ...
