RESULTS

Found (179) clinical trials

Doctors at Albert Einstein College of Medicine are seeking healthy volunteers, aged 21-60, to participate in a medical research study to better understand glucose metabolism and brain function. Inclusion Criteria: BP < 130/90 (+-2 meds) BMI < 35 Normal screening labs (CBC, chemistry, lft's PT/PTT) No CAD No first degree ...

Phase

THRIVE is an observational study that will collect information on patients with UCDs. THRIVE will follow enrolled participants for up to 10 years. As an observational study, enrolled patients will not be required to make any additional office visits or take any medicine outside of normal care.

Phase N/A

The Effects of Potassium Citrate on Bone Metabolism

Skeletal buffering of chronic acid loads may contribute to a significant amount of bone loss over time. Evidence from a few small short-term studies suggests that basic compounds, namely potassium citrate and potassium bicarbonate may reduce bone loss and improve bone density. The purpose of this study is to evaluate ...

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 ...

Clinical Molecular and Metabolic Characteristics of Parkinson's Disease (PD) Patients With Parkin Mutation

Parkinson's disease is a frequent neurodegenerative disorder. Genetic forms of the disease have been recently identified. The monogenic form due to parkin mutation is responsible for many familial cases and sporadic forms. However, the relationship between the mutation and the genotype of patients is not fully established. The aim of ...

Phase N/A

Metabolic Disorders in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrinopathy in women of reproductive age with a probable prevalence of 5% to 10%. PCOS is characterized by chronic anovulation, menstrual irregularities, evidence of hyperandrogenism (either clinical, manifested as hirsutism, acne, male pattern balding, or biochemical, manifested by elevated serum adrenal and/or ...

Phase N/A

Longitudinal Study of Urea Cycle Disorders

Urea cycle disorders are a group of rare genetic diseases that affect how protein is broken down in the body. UCDs are caused by a deficiency in one of six enzymes or two mitochondrial membrane transporters responsible for removing ammonia, a waste product of protein metabolism, from the bloodstream. Normally, ...

Phase N/A

A Taiwan Isoflavone Multicenter Study (TIMS)

Consumption of soy-based foods is associated with a number of health benefits, including lower risk of cardiovascular disease, breast and prostate cancer, attenuated menopausal symptoms and prevention of bone loss with age. In order to investigate the effect of isoflavone on bone mineral density (BMD) and in Taiwan women with ...

Phase N/A

Study of Treatment and Metabolism in Patients With Urea Cycle Disorders

PROTOCOL OUTLINE: This protocol involves 2 clinical studies. Part A is a metabolic study of glutamine conversion to urea at different levels of protein intake, while on and off medications. Part B is a dose escalation study of a first-generation adenoviral vector with an E1 deletion and an E3 deletion ...

Phase

Studies in Porphyria I: Characterization of Enzyme Defects

PROTOCOL OUTLINE: All patients are evaluated for porphyria type and factors contributing to the clinical expression of their particular form of the disease. Testing includes erythrocyte porphobilinogen deaminase, erythrocyte protoporphyrin, plasma porphyrins, and urinary and fecal porphyrins and precursors. Selected patients are entered into other porphyrin research protocols in this ...
