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 ...


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 ...


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 ...


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 ...


Can Correction of Low Vitamin D Status in Infancy Program for a Leaner Body Composition?

Neonates from hospitals in the greater Montreal area will be studied. Neonates will be screened for low vitamin D status within 48 h of birth for 25(OH)D to enable rapid entry into study groups. Those with serum 25(OH)D <50 nmol/L will be randomized to 400 or 1000 IU/d until 1 ...

Phase N/A

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 ...


Impact of Physical Activity on Biomarker of Aging and Body Composition Among Breast Cancer Survivors Age 65 and Older

LCCC1410 is designed to compare the change in p16 from baseline to end of chemotherapy in 100 older ( 65 years) breast cancer patients participating in a home-based physical activity program (intervention group) to 100 patients in the concurrent control group not participating in a physical activity intervention (enrolled in ...

Phase N/A

Validation of Bedside Ultrasound to Predict Body Composition in Non- and Critically Ill Patients

The prospective study will include 200 patients and 50 critically ill patients, who had an abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan including the L3 level for any clinical reason. Ultrasound scans of the anterior thighs and forearms will be taken after the CT scan within 48 hours. Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) ...
