Delineation of the Role of Glucagon-like Peptide-1 Signalling in Relation to Increased Carbohydrate Content in the Distal Small Intestines

The primary aim of the study is to investigate whether GLP-1 released as a result of increased carbohydrate content in the distal and L cell-rich part of the small intestine after a meal affects postprandial plasma glucose levels in patients with type 2 diabetes. This will be done by applying ...

Phase N/A

Aerobic Treadmill Exercise And Metabolism

Pre-screening- potential participants interested in participating in the proposed research study will be required to perform a pre-screening to assess eligibility. Interested participants will e-mail the research team at TheATEAMstudy@gmail.com and will be contacted by one of the research team members via telephone to discuss the basics of the study ...

Phase N/A

A Double Blind Randomised Placebo-controlled Trial to Assess the Role of Iron Repletion in Glucose Homeostasis.

In this study the investigators aim at addressing potential relationships between iron stores and glucose homeostasis. Iron (i.e. Ferric Carboxymaltose) will be perfused to pre-menopausal, iron-deficient non-anaemic women suffering from a chronic fatigue syndrome and parameters related to glucose homeostasis, parameters related to metabolic syndrome and inflammation will be measured ...


Is Venous to Arterial Conversion (v-TAC) of Blood Gas Reliable in Critical Ill Patients in the ICU?

Arterial blood gas (ABG) analysis is essential in assessment of respiratory and metabolic status in acutely ill patients. In comparison to peripheral venous blood (PVG) sampling, the ABG sampling procedure is more painful for the patient and technically more challenging for the clinician to perform. Other drawbacks of ABG sampling ...

Phase N/A

Metformin Treatment on Cognitive Impairment of Schizophrenia Co-morbid Metabolic Syndrome

In this study, the investigators will investigate the impact and the related mechanism of metformin treatment on cognitive impairment of schizophrenia co-morbid metabolic syndrome (Sch-MetS). The study will recruit 40 Sch-MetS patients, 40 patients with schizophrenia but without MetS, and 40 patients with schizophrenia and higher risk factors for MetS. ...

Adipose Tissue Cellular Response to Exercise in Healthy Humans

Fat tissue is far more than just a place where humans store body fat. Fat tissue contains many different types of cells, such as immune cells, endothelial cells, and fat precursor cells. Differences or changes in the number of immune cells, endothelial cells, and fat precursor cells in fat tissue ...

Phase N/A

Obesity Metabolic Dysregulation and the Airway Epithelium in Asthmatics

This is a cross sectional pilot study comparing specific metabolic pathways in bronchial airway epithelial cells and the nasal epithelium across the following patient groups: Obese (Body Mass Index (BMI) 30) asthmatics without metabolic syndrome, Obese asthmatics with metabolic syndrome, Obese non-asthmatics, and Non - obese (lean > 18 <= ...

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

Chung-ju Metabolic Disease Cohort (CMC) Study

Diabetes, metabolic syndrome and dyslipidemia are common and rapidly increasing in Asia. Our group constructed a cohort in Chung-ju city, a rural area in Korea, to observe the prevalence of metabolic diseases and its risk factors since 2003. About 12,000 subjects participated in this cohort study till 2006. Now, we ...

Phase N/A

Hormonal and Metabolic Consequences of Sleep Disorders in Young Obese Patients

The main purpose of the study is investigate whether the concentrations of 2 hormones that regulate appetite (leptin, ghrelin), cytokines (TNF-a, IL-6) and CRP are modified in obese adolescents and young adults who had sleep disorders in comparison to obese adolescents and young adults who sleep longer.
