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: ...

Phase N/A

Measurement of Body Fat in Infants

Up to 10 infants will complete the study aimed to establish a technique for measuring whole body adiposity and brown adipose tissue in infant subjects using dual energy x-ray absorptiometry and magnetic resonance imaging, respectively.

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

Breakfast and Muscle Health in Children

One in every three children ages 2-19 years is overweight or obese. Although multifactorial in nature, obesity is primarily attributed to a mismatch between energy intake and energy expenditure (EE). Daily EE (DEE) can be partitioned between resting metabolic rate (RMR), EE associated with physical activity, and the thermic effect ...

Phase N/A

DXA Study of Precision and Reliability

Osteoporosis and obesity are highly prevalent and disabling chronic diseases. Osteoporosis is a disease of low bone mass, which predisposes people to bone fragility and increased risk of bone fractures. Obesity is a disease characterized by excess body fat levels, which predisposes people to diabetes, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, cancer, ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Increased Enteral Protein on Body Composition of Preterm Infants

Qualifying participants will be randomly assigned to receive either standard protein supplementation (control group) or high protein supplementation (intervention group). Intervention group: A fixed amount of commercially available hydrolyzed bovine protein will be added to fortified human milk after establishment of full enteral feeding. Control group: Hydrolyzed bovine protein will ...

Phase N/A

Body Composition Ultrasound for Patients With Heart Failure

The investigators will be recruiting both healthy subjects without HF, as well as subjects with either HF, a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) or cardiac transplantation. This is an observational study to validate the use of the BodyMetrix BX 2000 Pro ultrasound machine for the assessment of body composition, particularly ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Exposure to Persistent Organic Pollutants During Pregnancy on the Composition of Breast Milk and Consequences on the Newborn

Picardie is a sub-region with a young population and a high birth rate. The highlighting and the characterization of a maternal exhibition and the newborn will make it possible to know the in utero and postnatal exposure to the pesticides, and if necessary, to implement measures of information and prevention ...
