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, ...

Phase N/A

A Follow-up Study to Investigate the Effects of a New Infant Formula on Growth and Body Composition

A follow-up study of a randomised, controlled, study to investigate the effects of a new infant formula given in the first 12 months of life on growth and body composition up to 5 years of age. Participants from Venus study will be invited to participate in this follow-up study. Hypothesis: ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

Determining the Microbiota Composition of the Middle Meatus in Parkinson's

The exact cause of PD remains unknown, but current theories suggest that it results from a combination of hereditary or genetic factors (i.e. family traits ) and exposure to unknown substances in the environment. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether toxins produced by bacteria that live within ...

Phase N/A

Body Composition Analysis in Cirrhotic Undergoing Paracentesis

Ascites is a frequent complication of liver cirrhosis, initial treatment consists on diuretics intake, however, as the disease progresses this complication becomes more severe, consequently other therapeutic options are used. Paracentesis is indicated when severe ascites is present and it should be accompanied by albumin infusion. Nutritional status is generally ...

Phase N/A

Body Composition Analysis for Patient With Lung Cancer Using Computed Tomography Image Analysis

Rationale: With 1.6 million new cases diagnosed each year and 1.3 million deaths, lung cancer is the leading cancer-related death worldwide and it represents a pressing health issue. Patients with lung cancer are more likely to experience cachexia, a severe debilitating disorder causing fatigue, weight loss, muscle wasting and associated ...

Phase N/A

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

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 ...
