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 ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase

Body Weight Body Composition and Energy Balance Related Behavior During the Transition to Parenthood

The first objective of this research is to investigate both maternal and paternal changes in body weight, body composition and energy balance related behaviour during and after pregnancy in Flemish couples. The second objective is to investigate socio-demographic and behavioural predictors of changes in both maternal and paternal body weight ...

Phase N/A

Frailty and Body Composition in the Elderly Cancer Patients Treated With Chemotherapy

The investigators could hypothesize that age-related changes in body composition parameters play a role in the variable tolerance to chemotherapy in the elderly. However none of the studies relating body composition and chemotoxicity included elderly as a specific subpopulation. Furthermore in the majority of studies, body composition analyses are based ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

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

Validation of Bedside Ultrasound to Predict Body Composition in Non- and Critically Ill Patients

The prospective study will include 200 patients and 50 critically ill patients, who had an abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan including the L3 level for any clinical reason. Ultrasound scans of the anterior thighs and forearms will be taken after the CT scan within 48 hours. Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) ...

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

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 ...
