Body Composition and Adipose Tissue in HIV

HIV lipodystrophy is increasingly recognized as a common and clinically significant long-term sequelae of HIV treatment. In the HIV lipodystrophy lipohypertrophy phenotype, visceral adipose tissue (VAT) is increased and this is associated with reduced growth hormone (GH) secretion. Mounting evidence also links this phenotype with dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, subclinical atherosclerosis ...

Exercise and Mediterranean Diet on Body Composition Disease Activity and Inflammatory Markers in Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation, joint pain, destruction of the synovial membranes and metabolic alterations due mainly by the liberation of tumor necrosis factor alpha and interleukin-1 beta mainly and leading to changes in body composition as rheumatoid cachexia, which is characterized by involuntary ...

Comparing Effects of Liraglutide and Bariatric Surgery on Weight Loss Liver Function Body Composition Insulin Resistance Endothelial Function and Biomarkers of Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) in Obese Asian Adults

The morbidity and mortality from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), the most common liver disease worldwide, are rapidly increasing as a result of the global explosion in obesity, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region where there will be an estimated 300 million obese people by 20302. Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), a subset ...

Changes in Body Composition After EPA Supplementation in Head and Neck Patients

This study is designed to evaluate the effect of EPA supplementation on muscle mass in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck locally advanced (stage III-IVb) to assess that supplementation with EPA can maintain muscle mass along the oncologic treatment. Other aims are to evaluate the nutritional ...

Nutritional Status in Children Treated With Advanced Nutrition Therapy

Design, methodology and selection: The study consist of two parts: A retrospective study (registry study) of malnutrition among all children with cancer, admitted during a two year period, and a clinical trial to evaluate the effect of a standardized nutrition protocol for children undergoing SCT. Nutritional status is assessed before, ...

Body Composition Measurements in Chronic Heart Failure

Feeding optimization and nutritional assessment in patients with severe heart failure are challenging. The reasons are rather complex and many questions have not been answered yet. Unfortunately, no clear and definitive guidelines are available from the big Nutritional Societies - The European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN), American ...

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 ...

Effects of Empagliflozin on Liver Fat Content Energy Metabolism and Body Composition in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

In this multicentre, prospective, placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized, 2-arm parallel, interventional pilot study HCL and intramyocellular lipids (IMCL) will be quantified with 1H magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy. Hepatic ATP and inorganic phosphate (Pi) concentrations will be assessed with 31P MR spectroscopy (1). Whole-body and hepatic insulin sensitivity and metabolic flexibility will ...

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 ...

Expression of Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) and Body Composition Modification in Patients With Septic Shock

With a prevalence of more than 15% in ICU, septic shock today represents a real public health problem and remains the leading cause of mortality in ICU. Undernutrition is characterized by an alteration of the body composition and in particular by a loss of muscle mass. In intensive care, there ...
