Found (13) clinical trials

Hyperglycemia and Exercise.

Healthy male volunteers will undergo a screening visit and three experimental trials. Screening Visit: Having read the participant info sheet, a study investigator will discuss the project with the potential participant who will have the chance to ask any questions. Informed consent will be sought and a General Health Questionnaire ...

Phase N/A

Lipolytic Effects of GH in Human Subjects in Vivo

Growth hormone (GH) induces fat metabolism. The mechanisms underlying the fat metabolizing effects of GH remain elusive. However, it is known that insulin suppresses fat metabolism, and GH inhibits the expression of certain insulin-dependent signaling proteins. We therefore hypothesize that the fat metabolizing effects of GH depend on abrogation of ...

Phase N/A

Possible Links Between Inflammation and Lipid Metabolism

Sepsis is a severe clinical syndrome with still limited means of therapy and often poor prognosis. It has been recognized lately that sepsis and inflammation has an important impact on lipid metabolism and that the extent of hypocholesterolemia may even be a marker of severity of illness. This study aims ...

Phase N/A

Effects of a Single Day of Mixed Macronutrient Overfeeding on Energy Balance and Metabolic Responses

All testing will take place within the Carnegie Research Institute, Leeds Beckett University. We will ask all the participants to visit on five occasions for the completion of a preliminary screening trial and two single-blind counterbalanced experimental trials which each require the participants to visit the laboratory on two consecutive ...

Phase N/A

Lipolytic Effects of GH in Hypopituitary Patients in Vivo

Growth hormone (GH) is essential for longitudinal bone growth and somatic development. These protein anabolic effects require sufficient nutritional supply. During fasting and caloric restriction GH predominantly promotes fat metabolism. GH counteracts the effect of insulin in many tissues, of which insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in skeletal muscle has been most ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Frequency and Duration of Breaks in Sitting Time on Metabolic Cardiovascular Risk Factors

Fifteen (n=15) sedentary adult overweight males will be included in the study. All participants will undergo the four interventions in a randomized cross-over design. Wash out between intervention will be minimum four days. Control (CON): Participants will be sedentary. Sedentary time will be spent sitting in a chair, restricted to ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Palm Olein Olive Oil and Lard and on Risk Markers of Cardiovascular Disease

The aim of this study is to compare the effects of a diet rich in palm olein, a fraction of palm oil, to a diet rich in olive oil and a diet rich in Danish lard on plasma total-, LDL and HDL cholesterol as well as triacylglycerol (TAG), fasting insulin ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Intravenous Injection of Erythropoietin on Hepcidin Pharmacokinetics in Healthy Volunteers

The aim of this study is to measure the variations of serum and urinary hepcidin levels following a single intravenous injection of erythropoietin in healthy volunteers. Hepcidin is a major regulator of iron homeostasis. It acts by binding on ferroportin, and limits cellular efflux of iron through enterocytes and macrophages. ...

Phase N/A

Acute Metabolic Effects of Melatonin Treatment

Modern living is associated with an epidemic of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Sleep disturbances such as insomnia and frequent awakenings are strong independent risk factors for incident diabetes with a magnitude of effect comparable to a family history of diabetes. Melatonin has been implicated in regulation of circadian rhythm ...


Acute Assessment of Platelet Reactivity After the Intake of Oleocanthal

Fifty adult male volunteers will be asked to participate in one of two study trials that will be randomized double-blind controlled crossover trials with 2 study visits. The participants will arrive to the facility after an overnight fast, and will be asked to consume their assigned EVOO either without (trial ...
