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

Effects of Soy Protein on Body Composition and General Health in Healthy Children

The aim of this clinical trial is to assess the effects of daily consumption of soy protein foods on body composition, general health status and dietary intake outcomes in generally healthy children.

Phase N/A

Dietary Essential Fatty Acid Regulation of Omega-3 HUFA Metabolism; Satiety and Body Composition

Objective To evaluate the effects of lowering the dietary nutrient linoleic acid (LA) as a controlled variable on: 1) tissue accretion of omega-6 and omega-3 highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA); 2) bioactive endocannabinoids derived from the omega-6 HUFA arachidonic acid (AA); 3) insulin sensitivity; 4) satiety and hunger; and 5) ...

Body Composition Monitoring(BCM) for Determination of the Fluid Status in Patients Undergoing General Anesthesia

Patients undergoing anesthesia and surgery receive intravenous fluids during the procedure. The amount of administered fluid depends on the type of surgery, cardiovascular stability and intraoperative losses like hemorrhage. Fluid overload as well as hypohydration might be detrimental and might adversely effect outcome after surgery. Specifically overhydration results in significant ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Oral Nutritional Supplement Intervention Among Hemodialysis Patients With Sarcopenic Obesity

In chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients, disease- and age- related changes in body composition, as well as the increased prevalence of obesity, determine a combination of excess weight and reduced muscle mass or strength, recently defined as sarcopenic obesity. The prevalence of sarcopenic obesity increase with lower eGFR, and previous ...

Phase N/A

VolumE maNagement Under Body Composition Monitoring in Critically Ill patientS on CRRT

Although monitoring fluid balance for continuous renal replacement therapy-treated patients is an important issue, most physicians usually use conventional methods such as the difference between the amount of intake and output (I & O), which is not objective way. Meanwhile, bioimpedance electrical vector analysis presents the patients' fluid status with ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

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

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 ...
