Exercise Intervention in Liver Transplant Patients

This study aims to evaluate the effects of a home-based exercise intervention on outcomes in liver transplant candidates and recipients. This home-based intervention consists of a 30-minute exercise session available on digital video disc or on the internet. This intervention was originally developed to improve functional status in community-dwelling older ...

Phase N/A

The Urinary Incontinence Treatment Study

Investigators plan a prospective cohort study with an adaptive design based on physical function status. The design will involve tracking the number of women recruited with physical function impairment and those without any functional impairment. Investigators aim to recruit similar numbers of women in each group. If they find unequal ...

Phase N/A

Counteracting Age-related Loss of Skeletal Muscle Mass

Up to approximately 205 (dependent on drop-out rate) healthy elderly individuals (at least 65 years old) are recruited as subjects. Upon inclusion, each individual will be randomized into one of the five groups stratified according to gender (M/F) and 30s chair stand (<16 OR 16). The five groups are: Heavy ...

Phase N/A

Counteracting Age-related Loss of Skeletal Muscle Mass (CALM)

Up to 66 healthy elderly individuals (at least 65 years old) are recruited as subjects. They will be recruited as a subgroup to protocol ID: H-4-2013-070. Upon inclusion, each individual will be randomized into one of the five groups stratified according to gender (M/F) and 30s chair stand (<16 OR ...

Phase N/A

Dietary Supplementation With Omega-3 Fatty Acid in Muscle Response

The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acid supplementation on the muscular adaptive response in sarcopenic elderly women submitted to resistance training. A total of 30 sarcopenic elderly women, aged 65 years or older, were divided into two groups of 15 volunteers: ...

Phase N/A

HMB for Denutrition in Patients With Cirrhosis (HEPATIC)

Scientific & technical aspects State of the art: Patients with cirrhosis present a chronic inflammatory state and alterations in protein metabolism. These alterations lead to elevated levels of insulin and catecholamines along with the development of glucose intolerance and insulin resistance. The reduced availability of glucose as energy source translates ...

Phase N/A

Body Composition Measurements in Chronic Heart Failure

Feeding optimization and nutritional assessment in patients with severe heart failure are challenging. The reasons are rather complex and many questions have not been answered yet. Unfortunately, no clear and definitive guidelines are available from the big Nutritional Societies - The European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN), American ...

Phase

Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Patients

The main objective of this study is to determine the effects of a pulmonary rehabilitation program on the pulmonary function and muscle mass. Moreover, the effects on exercise tolerance, inflammatory response, quality of live and overall survival will be explored. Patients will be randomized into intervention group (IG) or control ...

Phase N/A

The Study of Sarcopenia and Aging Biomarkers by the Metabolomics

Metabolomics is the emerging platform technology to address the complexity of a living system. In translational research, metabolomics approaches may enable the detection of multiple disease risk factors and interactions, disease progression, and response of patients to a particular therapy with or without side effects. Metabolomics may provide comprehensive information ...

Phase N/A

Trial of Oral Glutamine on Mitochondrial Function in CKD

Chronic kidney disease is associated with endothelial cell dysfunction and muscle wasting contributing to the heightened risk of cardiovascular morbidity, mortality and functional limitation. Accumulation of toxins in renal disease may adversely impact endothelial cell nitric oxide bioavailability and endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase (eNOS) function consequently heightening oxidative stress and ...
