Prospective Biomarkers of Bone Metabolism in Hemophilia A

This is a pilot study to determine the impact of factor replacement on bone biomarkers in up to 20 hemophilia A subjects. Subjects will be recruited over 1 year for the 5-day protocol. Following a 72-hour washout period, factor levels and bone biomarkers will be followed before and after 50 ...

The Effect of HMB Supplementation on Adipose Tissue Inflammation and Metabolism

Forty obese men (BMI 35-40 kg/m2,18-40 years of age) will be randomly assigned to one of four treatment interventions: 1) Calorie restricted; 2) Calorie restricted and HMB supplemented; 3) No calorie restriction; and 4) No calorie restriction and HMB-supplemented. Over the 8 week interventional period the calorie restricted group is ...

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) in Evaluating Cerebral Glucose Metabolism and Functional Change for Patients With Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury (SCI) results in dysfunction of motor and sensory system and the hormonal secretion. Not only the change of peripheral hormonal organs, the central neurotransmitters were also affected. We consider there are some changes in cerebral physiology, anatomy or function after SCI. Transcranial magnetic stimulation, magnetic coil or ...

Phase N/A

Study of the Effects of Muscular Activity on Iron Metabolism

Hemojuvelin has been described as interfering with hepcidin, a key regulator of iron homeostasis. Hemojuvelin is mainly produced by muscle, and the relationship between exercise and iron metabolism can be questioned about. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of muscular exercise on iron metabolism in healthy ...

Phase N/A

Type 2 Diabetes and the Effect of Probiotics

Numerous studies have shown an association between insulin-resistance in type 2 diabetes and chronic low-grade inflammation. Some probiotics have an anti-inflammatory properties. Ingestion of probiotics might therefore, due to this property, increase sensitivity to insulin. In this study type 2 diabetics (N=24) and healthy control (N=24) are given the probiotic ...

Effect of Increasing Testosterone on Insulin Sensitivity in Men With the Metabolic Syndrome

The metabolic syndrome is a medical condition defined by high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, increased abdominal obesity (gain in fat around the region of the stomach), and insulin resistance. Insulin is the hormone that your body produces to decrease the levels of sugar in your blood. A person that ...

Testosterone Therapy in Men With Low Testosterone Levels and Metabolic Syndrome or Early Stages of Type 2 Diabetes

Background The metabolic syndrome constitutes a cluster of risk factors for cardiovascular disease with increased morbidity and mortality. In essence the metabolic syndrome is referred to as a concomitant occurrence of hypertension, hyperlipidemia, impaired glucose tolerance with insulin resistance and abdominal obesity. The presence of abdominal obesity seems to be ...

Phase

Antipsychotic Medicine and Metabolic Syndrome

The primary aim of this study is to investigate status of neuro-and enteroendocrine axes with focus on beta - cell function in relation to insulin resistance, lipid profile abnormalities and inflammations adipokins in patients during treatment with antipsychotics (AP) in relation to weight gain. The second aim is to evaluate ...

Phase N/A

The Incidence and Treatment of Insulin Resistance Among Men With Erectile Dysfunction

Insulin is a hormone produced by the body that lets sugar into the cells, where it is used for energy. Insulin resistance occurs when the body’s cells have a decreased ability to react to insulin. This leads to an increase in insulin secretion. Over time, insulin resistance can lead to ...
