Study of Smith-Lemli-Opitz Syndrome

Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome (SLOS) is an autosomal recessive multiple congenital anomaly/mental retardation syndrome. Typical clinical features include a distinctive facial appearance, mental retardation, autistic behavior, hypotonia, failure to feed, poor growth, decreased life span, and variable structural anomalies of the heart, lungs, brain, gastrointestinal tract, limbs, genitalia and kidneys. The SLOS ...

Phase N/A

Metabolic Changes in Patients With Chronic Cardiopulmonary Disease

This study aims to evaluate prevalence of sarcopenia and cachexia in patients with chronic cardiopulmonary disease. The investigators will also investigate metabolic disorders like glucose metabolism, presence of metabolic syndrome, body composition and histological changes in skeletal muscle and body fat. Finally, patients will be followed for clinical endpoints.

Rare Disease Patient Registry & Natural History Study - Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford

CoRDS collects contact, sociodemographic and health information about participants. This information is entered into CoRDS and linked to a unique coded identifier. Below are some examples of information requested on the Questionnaire that will be entered into CoRDS: Contact information: Name, Mailing Address, Phone Number, Email Address Sociodemographic information: Date ...

PAR Regulation of Platelet Function in Diabetic Patients

Given the known roles of proteases and PARs in coagulation, inflammation, pain, healing and protection, the need for development of a PAR antagonist as a therapeutic agent for treatment of thrombosis, atherosclerosis and inflammation is well-recognized. Thus, blocking PAR action by inhibiting the PAR-G protein interface is an alternative target ...

The Prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome and Its Associated Factors in an Urban City

Up to now, there has been to uniform case definition for the metabolic syndrome. The World Health Organization and the Third Report of the National Cholesterol Education Program's Adult Treatment Panel (ATP III), and Bureau of Health Promotion, Taiwan proposed different criteria for the metabolic syndrome. Therefore, the secondary objective ...

Phase N/A

Side Effects of Antipsychotic Medications

Objectives: The use of atypical antipsychotics has been associated with increased weight gain, the development of type-2 diabetes, and, in rare cases, diabetic ketoacidosis. It is not clear if these changes are a direct function of antipsychotics on either insulin action or insulin secretion, or simply related to their ability ...

Phase N/A

Non-invasive Evaluation of Hepatic Fibrosis in Patients With the Metabolic Syndrome

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is now recognised as the hepatic complication of the metabolic syndrome of insulin resistance. In some patients, the disease can progress into steatohepatitis (NASH) which associates fatty liver, hepatocellular damage, chronic inflammation and variable and progressive fibrosis. The latter can evolve into cirrhosis and end-stage ...

Investigation of Genetic Risk of Metabolic Syndrome in Company Employee (NGK Study)

The metabolic syndrome is a highly prevalent disorder, which causes atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and is closely associated with insulin resistance. The alteration of the secretion of adipocytokines from accumulated visceral adipose tissue in the obese induces insulin resistance. The purpose of this study is to identify gene polymorphisms that confer ...

Changes in Different Fat Compartments and Their Effect on Particular Manifestations of Metabolic Syndrome After Bariatric Procedures.

The metabolic risks associated with obesity are closely correlated with central (abdominal), rather than a peripheral (gluteofemoral) fat pattern. The amount of fat lost from each site may be independently regulated. Very scant information is found in the literature regarding the relative changes in different fat body compartments. Rapid and ...

Detection and Treatment of Endocrine Abnormalities in Childhood Cancer Survivors and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Recipients

Endocrine dysfunction is increasingly recognized as one of the most important aspects of quality of life issues, physical and psychosocial development and overall prognosis in pediatric patients diagnosed with neoplasms as well as in patients s/p bone marrow transplant throughout their lifespan. In addition, several of the new, molecularly designed ...
