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 ...

Their treatment is a challenge for the families, the health care system and society. The treatment is complex and non-standardized. In clinical practice, the relational dimension between the stakeholders is recognized by ...

Phase N/A

Deep Brain Stimulation for Patients With Chronic Severe and Resistant Anorexia Nervosa

HYPOTHESIS OF THE CLINICAL TRIAL Based on the results of functional, preclinical, clinical and neurocircuit imaging studies in patients with Anorexia Nervosa (AN) and in the results of deep brain stimulation (DBS) in 81 other mental illnesses and in AN, our main hypotheses are: The subgeneric cingulate (CSG) and nucleus ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Anorexia Nervosa on Peak Bone Mass

Given the increasing prevalence of AN, its profound consequences on bone health, and lack of optimal treatment interventions, these studies will provide critical data needed to identify optimal treatment strategies for this severe co-morbid disease using state- of- the- art endpoints of BMD, bone microarchitecture and strength. Although both low ...

The human brain has constant access to a multitude of complex signals, which it must simplify and organize in order to sustain the integrity of the organism. Many of these signals originate from outside of the body, such as lights, sounds, and smells, and much is known about how humans ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

Study at the Man of the Profile of Chimiokines in the Anorexia Bound to the Cancerous Cachexy

The syndrome of anorexia-cachexie, which accompanies numerous cancers is a major comorbidity which compromises the forecast of these patients. Several cytokines pro-inflammatory as interleukines IL1 , IL6 or TNFa participate in the physiopathology of this syndrome at the man and the animal. Besides, it is now established that different neuronal ...

Low weight eating disorders (LW-ED), the broader category of eating pathology that includes AN and similar variants, ...

Phase N/A

Estrogen Replacement in Anorexia Nervosa

While there is broad knowledge on the disruption of appetite regulation, neurocognitive deficits in AN patients, the impact of cortisol on neurocognitive performances in patients with AN and the effects of estrogen on neurocognitive features in healthy subjects, up to now, no study has implemented estrogen replacement in AN patients, ...
