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

Influence of Nutritional and Inflammational Status on Survival of Hemodialysis Patients

prospective longitudinal measurements of nutritional status parameters (body composition by BIA, anthropometry and biochemical indexes), inflammatory response (CRP, inflammatory cytokines (IL-1, IL-6, IL-10),IGF-1, leptin and NOx blood levels) and morbidity and mortality data collection over 2 year period in patients receiving chronic hemodialysis.

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 ...

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 ...

Phase

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 ...

Phase

The Addition of Probiotic Consumption to a Nutritional Intervention and Caloric Restriction on Body Weight and Composition in Overweight Participants

Limited interventional human studies suggest that probiotic supplementation may be a beneficial strategy for promoting weight loss when added to a nutritional intervention via their effects on lipid absorption and metabolic signaling molecules. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of addition of a probiotic supplementation to ...

Clinical Evaluation Of An X-Ray Bone Densitometer:Use Of DXA Technology For Precise Assessment Of Human Body Composition

The secondary objectives of this study are the assessment of the consistency of body composition measurements at local level (arms, trunk, legs) between the Stratos and Hologic 4500 A, Monitoring the evolution of body composition in patients receiving at least two evaluations of DXA Hologic QDR 4500A on: patients treated ...

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

Body Composition in Systemic Amyloidosis

Malnutrition is a prominent clinical feature of patients affected by systemic immunoglobulin light-chain amyloidosis (AL), with a prevalence ranging between 25-50%. Although the prognosis predominantly depend on the presence and severity of cardiac involvement, it was shown that malnutrition is an independent predictor of survival and quality of life. However, ...
