Growth and Body Composition in Preterm Infants

OBJECTIVES GENERAL Evaluate the growth and body composition of VLBW infants upon reaching the corresponding term gestational age (GA) and weight. SPECIFIC Evaluate the longitudinal growth and body composition of VLBW infants from the first week of life and at the corresponding term GA and weight. Relate the weight loss ...

Influence of Elevated Baseline Serum Creatinine and Body Composition on Acute Kidney Injury in Cardiac Surgery

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is an infrequent but major and well - recognized complication of cardiac surgery (1, 2). Its incidence ranges from 1 to 30% (3). Numerous pre-, intra-, and postoperative factors have been associated with the development of AKI after cardiac surgery (3-19). Most commonly used definitions are ...

Body Composition and Lipid Metabolism at Rest and During Exercise: A Cross-Sectional and Prospective Analysis.

Metabolic flexibility broadly refers to the ability to utilize the right fuel source for energy (primarily either carbohydrate or fat) at the right time (Kelley and Mandarino, 2000). This was first conceptualised at the level of skeletal muscle (Kelley and Mandarino, 1990; Andres et al., 1956). A main tenant originally ...

Ultra Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA): Accurate and Precise Quantitative Multi-compartment Body Composition

This is a cross-sectional comparative technology study using a sample of convenience stratified by age, sex, and BMI. Following consent, each participant will undergo: 6 DXA whole body scans. The primary measure is bone mineral mass and body volume. DXA body volume is measured using equations from previous work that ...

Patient Fitness and Body Composition During Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation

This proposal aims to characterize biochemical and physiologic factors that contribute to changes in patient fitness and body composition during hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT) for hematologic malignancies. The investigators hypothesize that: 1) HCT for hematologic malignancies is associated with a change in biochemical and physiologic factors that reflect patient ...

Measurement of Body Composition by Air Displacement Plethysmography in Pediatric Intestinal Failure Patients

Infants and children with intestinal failure (IF) require prolonged periods of parenteral nutrition (PN) for sustenance and growth until intestinal adaptation allows adequate enteral intake. Lean body mass (or muscle mass) preservation and accrual is an important goal during this phase of nutritional rehabilitation. However, lean body mass is not ...

Development and Validation of Multi-nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy for Whole Body Human Applications

The purpose of this study is to develop and refine the techniques for using magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance spectroscopy to understand the composition and function of the human body

Body Composition Changes During Stem Cell Transplantation: The Case Of Lymphoma Patients

This study is a retrospective cohort study of patients having B and T cell lymphoma, who underwent SCT in the Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT) unit at AUBMC. Consecutive patients having B and T lymphoma who underwent SCT at AUBMC will be identified by the research team and will be included ...

Association Between Soy Based Formula in Infancy and Puberty

Soy and soy-based products are widely used in modern day nutrition. It is widely consumed among all populations, especially among vegetarians, vegans, those with milk allergy, and in the general population who consume processed foods .Soy-based infant formula is commonly used, and may account for nearly 25 % of the ...
