MABs Therapy m.3243A>G Mutation Carriers

Rationale: Mitochondrial disorders are progressive, often fatal multisystem disorders, in 20-25% of the cases caused by heteroplasmic mutations in the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). At this moment, there is no effective treatment known to influence the disease process or manifestation. Myogenic stem cell-based therapies complementing defective muscle cells and fibres, are …

The Healthy Cookie Energy Study: Understanding How Healthy Cookies Affect Mitochondrial Biology (HCES)

The proposed research is an intervention and feasibility pilot trial designed to determine if short-term consumption of healthy cookies made with an oil rich in linoleic acid can influence mitochondria biology in white blood cells and muscle. The hypothesis of the study is that consuming 1 healthy cookie rich in …

Enhancing Muscle Function After Exacerbations of COPD to Limit Its Impact on Physical Activity Decline

Patients with COPD lose muscle strength during acute exacerbations of COPD (AECOPD) which interferes improving the recovery of physical activity (PA) after an AECOPD. Resistance training can reverse this process. An exercise training program with the focus on resistance training is essential in minimizing the long-term effects of AECOPD as …

Influence of Dexmedetomidine or Propofol on ICU Delirium

In this randomized study, the investigators aim to test the hypothesis that the reinstitution of a normal circadian rhythm by continuous infusions of dexmedetomidine compared to propofol between 8pm and 6am after diagnosis of hyperactive or mixed delirium, decreases the duration of delirium. The infusions might have to be repeated …

Importance of Blood Volume and Its Interaction With Cardiovascular Adaptations

The present project aims to investigate the interaction between training-induced blood volume expansion (plasma- and red blood cell volume responses), central as well as peripheral cardio-vascular adaptations. We will investigate cardiovascular responses through one year of training in recreationally active men and women as well as endurance athletes undertaking shorter …

Variability of the Unique Fiber Potentials of a Spastic Muscle Treated With Botulinum Toxin (JITTOX)

The main objective is to study the variability and evolution of single-fiber jitter and fiber density (FD) electrophysiological parameters in a spastic muscle during botulinum toxin type A (BTA) treatment in hemiplegic patients after stroke, according to primary or multi-injected status. The secondary objectives of this study are: To establish …
