Mobile Phone Intervention for Physical Activity Maintenance in African American Men (MobileMen)

African American men experience health disparities across a number of preventable chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, strokes, obesity, and diabetes. Physical activity (PA) is a modifiable risk factor for these conditions. The few PA promotion studies that have included African American men have resulted in successful short-term behavior change, yet ...

Exenatide and Brown Adipose Tissue

The current study is an open-label single arm prospective design, including 24 healthy young lean males (BMI between 18 and 25 kg/m2), of whom 12 Dutch South Asians and 12 Dutch Caucasians. After a medical screening, included subjects will receive 12 weeks of treatment with the GLP-1 analogue exenatide (Bydureon; ...


The Effect of Sildenafil on Sleep-Disordered Breathing in Obese Patients With Sexual Dysfunction

Sildenafil has been shown to aggravate sleep-disordered breathing in patients with severe obstructive sleep apnea. The aim of the present study is to examine the frequency of sleep-disordered breathing in obese patients who are candidates for treatment with sildenafil for sexual dysfunction. In addition we wish to assess the effect ...

The Effect of Calcium on Fecal Fat and Energy Excretion

Several reports have found inverse associations between calcium intake and body weight. Few intervention studies have shown that a high calcium diet resulted in a greater body weight loss than a low calcium diet. The mechanism is not clear, but one possible explanation is reduced absorption of fat in the ...
