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 ...


Impact of a Ketogenic Diet Intervention During Radiotherapy on Body Composition

Type of study: Pilot / phase I trial Study purpose To assess the impact of a dietary intervention during radio(chemo)therapy (RCT) on body composition changes Trial Treatment Patients will be split into a control group and intervention group 1. If willing to undertake a ketogenic diet for the duration of ...


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

Low Versus High-glycemic Index Post-exercise Diets for Improving Metabolism and Body Composition

The increase in triglycerides after a meal (i.e. postprandial triglycerides) is a strong risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Overweight/obese individuals have a greater triglyceride response to the same meal compared to lean individuals; therefore they are at greater risk. If exercise is performed the evening before a high-fat breakfast, the ...

Phase N/A

Measurement of Body Fat in Infants

Up to 10 infants will complete the study aimed to establish a technique for measuring whole body adiposity and brown adipose tissue in infant subjects using dual energy x-ray absorptiometry and magnetic resonance imaging, respectively.

Phase N/A

DXA Study of Precision and Reliability

Osteoporosis and obesity are highly prevalent and disabling chronic diseases. Osteoporosis is a disease of low bone mass, which predisposes people to bone fragility and increased risk of bone fractures. Obesity is a disease characterized by excess body fat levels, which predisposes people to diabetes, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, cancer, ...

Phase N/A

Breakfast and Muscle Health in Children

One in every three children ages 2-19 years is overweight or obese. Although multifactorial in nature, obesity is primarily attributed to a mismatch between energy intake and energy expenditure (EE). Daily EE (DEE) can be partitioned between resting metabolic rate (RMR), EE associated with physical activity, and the thermic effect ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Increased Enteral Protein on Body Composition of Preterm Infants

Qualifying participants will be randomly assigned to receive either standard protein supplementation (control group) or high protein supplementation (intervention group). Intervention group: A fixed amount of commercially available hydrolyzed bovine protein will be added to fortified human milk after establishment of full enteral feeding. Control group: Hydrolyzed bovine protein will ...

Phase N/A

Frailty and Body Composition in the Elderly Cancer Patients Treated With Chemotherapy

The investigators could hypothesize that age-related changes in body composition parameters play a role in the variable tolerance to chemotherapy in the elderly. However none of the studies relating body composition and chemotoxicity included elderly as a specific subpopulation. Furthermore in the majority of studies, body composition analyses are based ...

Phase N/A

Assessing the Efficacy of Smartphone Calorie Calculator Application on Body Composition With and Without Intervention

All subjects will read and sign an informed consent prior to participation in the study. The proposed study will be conducted at the Academic Health Care Center of the New York Institute of Technology, College of Osteopathic Medicine (Old Westbury, NY). Subjects will have 2 testing days where they will ...
