Effects of Denosumab on Bone Mineral Density in Women With Anorexia Nervosa: A Pilot Study

This protocol is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial which aims to investigate the effect of denosumab on BMD in women with anorexia nervosa. The investigators hypothesize that 12 months of denosumab administration will result in an increase in bone mineral density, decrease in markers of bone resorption and improvement ...

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 ...


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 test of this hypothesis, and to evaluate acceptability and ethical issues we aim to initially study up to 10 patients. This study may provide ...

Maudsley Model of Anorexia Nervosa Treatment for Adolescents and Young Adults (MANTR-a)

Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a serious mental illness which leads untreated to aggravation of symptomatology and chronification. Among all mental illnesses, AN has the highest mortality rate, which is about 5.1 per 1000 people per year. High drop-out rates (up to 40%) or small treatment motivation constrains treatment success. Since ...

Online Imaginal Exposure

Eating disorders (EDs) are tenacious mental disorders that are difficult to treat. EDs are often accompanied by anxiety disorders, which exacerbate the problem. Better ED treatments are imperative, and it is likely that targeting comorbid conditions, such as anxiety, will facilitate ED treatments. Imaginal exposure is used in anxiety disorders ...

Correlation Study Between Heart Rate Variability and Anxiety in Anorexia Nervosa

The heart rate variability (HRV) is a measure of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). In the model of anorexia nervosa, ANS is disturbed with mostly a predominance of activation of the parasympathetic nervous system and a decrease of the sympathetic system. Various explanations of this these dysfunctions are proposed in ...

Reward Systems and Food Avoidance in Eating Disorders

Anorexia nervosa (AN), a characteristically relentless pursuit of thinness with an intense fear of weight gain despite significantly low body weight, is a serious psychiatric disorder with high rates of morbidity and mortality. Low weight eating disorders (LW-ED), the broader category of eating pathology that includes AN and similar variants, ...

Phase N/A

Floatation-REST and Anorexia Nervosa

Flotation-REST (reduced environmental stimulation therapy) alters the balance of sensory input by systematically attenuating signals from the visual, auditory, thermal, tactile, vestibular, and proprioceptive systems. Previous research has shown that this heightens interoceptive awareness and reduces anxiety in clinically anxious populations. Anorexia nervosa (AN) is characterized by elevated anxiety, distorted ...

Family Therapy and Anorexia Nervosa : Which is the Best Approach?

While family therapy is considered to have proved itself, its efficacy has been tested with reference to individual therapy by several teams of researchers or in addition to an overall treatment program. Few studies however have compared different types of family studies, and these studies were often on small samples. ...
