The Addition of Probiotic Consumption to a Nutritional Intervention and Caloric Restriction on Body Weight and Composition in Overweight Participants

Limited interventional human studies suggest that probiotic supplementation may be a beneficial strategy for promoting weight loss when added to a nutritional intervention via their effects on lipid absorption and metabolic signaling molecules. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of addition of a probiotic supplementation to ...

Impact of a Ketogenic Diet Intervention During Radiotherapy on Body Composition

Type of study: Pilot / phase I trial Study purpose To assess the impact of a dietary intervention during radio(chemo)therapy (RCT) on body composition changes Trial Treatment Patients will be split into a control group and intervention group 1. If willing to undertake a ketogenic diet for the duration of ...

A Follow-up Study to Investigate the Effects of a New Infant Formula on Growth and Body Composition

A follow-up study of a randomised, controlled, study to investigate the effects of a new infant formula given in the first 12 months of life on growth and body composition up to 5 years of age. Participants from Venus study will be invited to participate in this follow-up study. Hypothesis: ...

The Effect of Neprilysin (LCZ696) on Exercise Tolerance in Patients With Heart Failure

Heart failure (HF) with reduced ventricular ejection fraction is a disease that affects around 5.7 million people in the United States, with a mortality rate of approximately 50% within 5 years. HF is characterized by an exacerbation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS), which leads to an increase in sympathetic nerve ...

Phase

Body Composition and White Adipose Tissue Inflammation

The investigators want to find a better way to predict the risk of having fatty tissue inflammation by using a different approach to finding out body fat composition. In this study, the investigators want to estimate the body fat composition using a DEXA scan. DEXA stands for dual energy X-ray ...

Determining the Microbiota Composition of the Middle Meatus in Parkinson's

The exact cause of PD remains unknown, but current theories suggest that it results from a combination of hereditary or genetic factors (i.e. family traits ) and exposure to unknown substances in the environment. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether toxins produced by bacteria that live within ...

Body Composition at Discharge and Neurological Development at 2 Years in Very Preterm Infants (OPTIPREMA)

Postnatal growth is a crucial in premature infants as it could be correlated with the long-term cognitive development. Recent data from the literature show that it is possible - with appropriate nutritional care - to reduce the initial weight loss and to ensure that the growth deficit accumulated is then ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Physiological Lifestyle and Genetic Factors on Body Composition

Research has shown that body composition is a key component of health and future disease risk. Being overweight and obese is associated with a higher body fat composition, and a greater risk of developing type II diabetes and heart disease. The location where fat is stored in the body is ...

Phase N/A

Ultrasound Peds Body Composition and Neurodevelopmental Outcomes

The investigators will address the hypothesis in the following Specific Aims: Specific Aim 1: Validate ultrasound as a method to measure whole body fat mass and fat-free mass in toddlers. Body composition will be assessed using ultrasound measurements and the validated method of air displacement plethysmography (ADP). Specific Aim 2: ...

Low Versus High-glycemic Index Post-exercise Diets for Improving Metabolism and Body Composition

The increase in triglycerides after a meal (i.e. postprandial triglycerides) is a strong risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Overweight/obese individuals have a greater triglyceride response to the same meal compared to lean individuals; therefore they are at greater risk. If exercise is performed the evening before a high-fat breakfast, the ...
