Microbiome-mediated Weight Anxiety and Stress Dysregulation in Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia nervosa (AN), a psychiatric disorder characterized by extreme weight dysregulation commonly presents with comorbid anxiety. Therapeutic renourishment in AN is based primarily on clinical opinion and guidelines, with a weak evidence base. Compelling data implicate the intestinal microbiota in the regulation of adiposity and behavior, providing a strong rationale ...

Phase N/A

PROspective Longitudinal All-comer Inclusion Study in Eating Disorders

The objective is to increase the understanding of the psychopathology and pathophysiology of Eating Disorders. More specifically, the aim is to identify biomarkers that relate to prognosis, disease course and response to treatment as usual of Eating Disorders, and, to improve the understanding of the pathophysiology of Eating disorders in ...

Phase N/A

Glutathione Levels and Compulsivity

Anorexia nervosa is a psychiatric disorder with a high mortality rate and for which there is very little evidence for pharmacological interventions of value. The picture is similar in bulimia nervosa, with a high mortality rate and with mixed outcomes from studies testing Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs). It is ...

Phase N/A

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) in the Treatment of Anorexia Nervosa

Stimulation of 2 milliampere is applied for 30 minutes in every real session. Together there are 10 sessions, the application is every workday within 2 weeks. All measurements and questionnaires are made 4 times: Before the stimulation On the day of the last stimulation 14 days after the last stimulation ...

Health Related Quality of Life for Patients With Anorexia Nervosa in Denmark.

INTRODUCTION Anorexia nervosa (AN) is an eating disorder of unknown etiology. The evidence base for treatment is still very limited considering the extent to which this disorder erodes lives and still carries the highest fatality rate of any psychiatric disease as well as any other chronic disease in adolescence. There ...

Pilot Study of Deep Brain Stimulation for Severe Anorexia Nervosa

Our hypothesis, based on prior research, is that DBS to the nucleus accumbens will have beneficial neural and symptomatic effects in severe Anorexia Nervosa. As a pilot test of this hypothesis, and to evaluate acceptability and ethical issues we aim to initially study 3 patients. This pilot study may provide ...
