NCT ID: NCT01111812 Recruiting - Clinical trial for Obesity

Prediction of Weight Gain by Children and Adolescents

Start date: January 2011
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

The 'Meir children's sport and health center' runs a multi-disciplinary intervention program for the treatment of overweight and obese children and adolescents. The program includes physical activity, dietary guidelines, medical supervision and behavioral treatment. The participants are routinely weighed once a week, at the same day and time, in order to supervise their progress. According to our experience, the child can predict his weight change, based on his "behavior" in the previous week. To our knowledge the overweight/obese child's ability to predict his weekly weight change, while participating in a multi-disciplinary intervention program, has never been tested.

NCT ID: NCT01109992 Recruiting - Clinical trial for Coronary Artery Disease

Integrated Dual Exercise and Lexiscan Positron Emission Tomography: IDEALPET

Start date: February 2011
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

This is a single-center study of subjects undergoing clinically indicated heart scans for evaluation of known or suspected heart disease. We will also include 10 healthy subjects without known heart disease. We would like to study stress testing of the heart using exercise and a medication called regadenoson. Imaging of the heart will be performed.

NCT ID: NCT01104220 Recruiting - Clinical trial for Obesity

Role of Immune System in Obesity-related Inflammation and Cardiometabolic Risk (201102127)

Start date: April 2010
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

The purpose of this study is to learn more about how the body stores fat in and around organs (ex. the liver) and why this affects some people's health more than others. Understanding this may lead to better treatments for diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
