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 ...

Phase N/A

Exercise and Pregnancy: Randomized Clinical Trial

The study will include low risk pregnant women randomized to practice physical exercise beginning at 13 weeks, 20 weeks or no exercise group. The objectives are: 1. To describe and compare biological and obstetrical variables. 2. To study doppler flow velocimetry indexes. 3. To determine the association between physical exercise ...

Phase N/A

Effects Of Losartan On Myocardial Structure In Diabetic Hypertensive Patients With Left Ventricular

The anthypertensive treatment with Losartan may have benefits beyond blood pressure reduction on myocardial structure and function in hypertensive diabetic patients. We will evaluate the effect of losartan treatment on structural characteristics of myocardium in hypertensive diabetic patients: 1. left ventricular mass, intraventricular septal thickness, fractional shortening. 2. myocardial qualitative ...

The GoodNEWS Lifestyle Enhancement Program

The GoodNEWS Trial is an 18-month effectiveness trial with an 18-month extended maintenance study, among 20 African-American and low-income congregations participating in the GoodNEWS faith-based lay health promotion program. After training, congregations will be randomized to either GoodNEWS with a health maintenance intervention (GoodNEWS-I) or GoodNEWS program alone (GoodNEWS-PA). The ...

The Effect of Sitagliptin on Hypertension Arterial Stiffness Oxidative Stress and Inflammation

Background: Recently, a new category of hypoglycemic therapy has emerged, aimed to modulate the incretin system in diabetic patients. Compared to other drugs that induce insulin secretion, these agents do not cause hypoglycemia. However, until now the differential effects of incretin modulators and the classical insulin inducers on hypettension, arterial ...

Phase N/A

Coreg CR Blood Vessel Stiffness and Blood Vessel Function

The following techniques will be used: Endothelial function will be measured non-invasively by flow-mediated changes in pulsatile blood volume in the finger-tips. Vascular compliance (stiffness) will be assessed by tonometry of the radial pulse wave ("augmentation index") and diastolic puse wave analysis. Plasma nitrate/nitrite levels mirror NO production and will ...

Phase

Vitamin D Insulin Resistance and Cardiovascular Disease

This is a double blinded, placebo controlled trial. Patients who meet the inclusion criteria will be randomized to placebo or 25(OH)D3, 4,000 IU/d orally for 16 weeks. Enrolled patients will be tested for 24h-blood pressure, brachial arterial blood flow, vascular inflammatory markers and macrophage inflammatory response to modified-lipoproteins at baseline, ...

Phase N/A

Cardiovascular Health And Risk Modification in Family Health Teams

Cardiovascular diseases remain the main cause of mortality in Canada. While effective interventions are available for reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease,there continue to be gaps between the potential reduction in risk that could be achieved by effectively managing these risk factors and levels of risk factor control currently in ...

Phase

The Epidemiology of Aortic Diameter in China

The purpose of this study was to analyze the size of the entire aorta at different anatomic levels in a large group of Chinese population with clinically evident arterial disease or cardiovascular risk factors to further explored the risk factors and potential alternative pathomechanisms for the development of aortic dilatation. ...

Genetics of Type 2 Diabetes in West Africans

This research protocol is designed to study the genetic basis of Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) in a broad range of populations in the United States and abroad. This project takes advantage of the well established infrastructure and success of Dr. Rotimi s international genetic epidemiology study of T2D funded as ...
