NCT ID: NCT03672786 Completed - Athlete Clinical Trials

Gene Expression in Intervened Athletes

Start date: August 15, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Background: Exercise represents an important challenge for the homeostasis of the entire body that occurs on a cellular and systemic level in which micronutrients play an important role in regulating the processes that sustain athletic performance. Objective: The investigators measured changes in gene expression of whole blood in a group of athletes and sedentary participants and compared gene modulation before and after nutritional intervention with micronutrients. Methods: Blood samples were taken from thirteen athletes and thirteen sedentary age- and gender-matched participants. The study design was carried out over a period of 4 months where three time points were established: (T0) baseline conditions in the sedentary and athlete groups; (T2) after two months of supplementation; (T4) after two months in the absence of nutritional supplementation. Differential gene expression was evaluated in 112 genes using RT-qPCR analysis with the QuantStudioTM 12K Flex Real-Time PCR System.

NCT ID: NCT03670719 Recruiting - Neck Pain Clinical Trials

Effectiveness of Manual Therapy and Exercise vs Exercise in Subjects With Chronic Cervical Pain and Upper Cervical Spine Dysfunction

Start date: September 20, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

There is a lot of scientific evidence about the effectiveness of manual therapy and exercise / training in subjects with cervical pain. Most of the high quality systematic reviews agree on the need to combine manual therapy and exercise for the treatment of chronic cervical pain. However, articles that focus on manual therapy in the treatment of the upper cervical spine are not as common, being that the most commonly prescribed exercises are those of craniocervical flexion, (flexion of the upper cervical spine). The investigators believe that participants who are going to benefit more from the integration of manual therapy and exercise will be those who have a real restriction of the upper cervical spine, and for these, is indispensable, the application of manual therapy techniques before the integration of the active exercise to obtain optimal results. This project is going to try to define participants with chronic cervical pain and upper cervical spine restriction that may benefit more from the combination of manual therapy and exercise than the rest. The investigators are going to study changes in different variables about function, pain, ultrasound, muscle tone, joints... Strengthen the importance of specificity in physiotherapy interventions and increase the evidence on the importance of manual therapy in a subgroup of participants with chronic cervical pain, improve knowledge about the involvement of the upper cervical spine in cervical pathology and check the effectiveness of a self-treatment program for participants with chronic cervical pain. The objective of this trial is to compare the effectiveness of an integrative approach of manual therapy associated with exercise versus exercise in participants with chronic cervical pain and upper cervical spine dysfunction. For this purpose, the investigators conduct a randomized controlled trial, simple-blind (Only is possible to blind the evaluator). The Sample size is 52 participants (2 groups of 26 participants). One of the groups will receive 4 training sessions with exercises for the cervical spine between 30 and 45 minutes duration per session and the other group will receive 4 sessions of a combination of manual therapy and training exercises also between 30 and 45 minutes each session. In addition, all participants will receive self-treatment techniques for self-management of their dysfunction. Cervical exercises will consist of a set of training techniques to improve the function and symptomatology that the participant has. These exercises have been widely evidenced and do not suppose any health risk. The techniques of manual therapy can be the manipulation technique in resting position, vertebral mobilization and / or musculature (massage and / or stretching). All the treatments applied follow the safety recommendations of the International Federation of Orthopedic Manual Therapists (IFOMPT). If participants need clarification, they can talk to the principal investigator (Jacobo Rodríguez Sanz) at any time. One physiotherapist will perform the physical examination, and a different one will apply the treatment. Physical therapists doing the screening will not know which group has been assigned to them, so the participant will be asked not to provide the evaluators any information about the assignment of his group to improve the quality of the study. The examination will consist of tests to assess whether the participant is a candidate to participate in the study, the measurement of pain, the exhaustive assessment of all cervical musculature with different measuring instruments and the measurement of joint mobility. The first day theparticipant be given information about his pain, his daily habits and activities that he usually does. The assessment of his problem will consist in the measurement of the amount of movement he can makes in the cervical area without pain, the ability to orient himself in certain movements with his eyes closed, the intensity of his pain, the evaluation of the state of his muscles. stabilizing as a mobilizer through ultrasound, muscle test and palpation. The functionality of his cervical vertebrae will also be evaluated and he will be asked different questionnaires about the functionality, pain and condition of his cervical pain, headache (in case of suffering) and kinesiophobia. Both the evaluation and the treatment will be without pain. In addition, he will be given a series of personalized exercises to improve his problem, which must be done every day during the study.

NCT ID: NCT03669692 Recruiting - Metabolic Syndrome Clinical Trials

Open Randomized Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Effects of Intermittent Caloric Restriction in Patients With Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms Secondary to Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.

Start date: July 10, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) include filling, emptying or post-voiding state alterations; producing symptomatology depending of the underline mechanism. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common underlying disease, which increases with age and significantly affects men over 50 years. There are currently no prevention or curative treatment guidelines, as their pathophysiological mechanism is not exactly known. Several factors have been implicated, such as hormones, aging, lifestyle or diet. BPH is associated with metabolic disorders, the basis of which is insulin resistance and its associated pathologies: diabetes, hypertension, obesity, dyslipidemia and metabolic syndrome. Patients without these metabolic signs have a lower incidence of BPH and / or LUTS. Insulin resistance (IR) is associated with greater proliferation and a reduction of cellular apoptosis at the prostate level; leading to an increase in prostate volume or symptoms. Likewise, the autonomic nervous system (ANS) imbalance, both in favor of sympathetic (emptying symptoms) or parasympathetic (filling symptoms), influences LUTS. SNA activity can be measured non-invasively, repetitively and effectively by measuring the heart rate variability (HRV). Caloric restriction with optimal nutrition (CRON, hereinafter only CR) is the most physiologically adapted nutritional alternative to our ancestral needs and has been shown in humans to reduce insulin resistance and associated pathologies. It has also been observed that CR improves the balance of the SNA and allows to improve LUTS. Proliferation inhibition and prostatic apoptosis induction, mediated through CR, by insulin-IGF-1 axis reduction and mTOR metabolic pathways inhibition, are the central axis of this project. CR will be used to reduce insulin resistance, IGF expression and inhibition of the PI3K / AKT / mTOR pathway, to reduce prostate cell proliferation and promote prostatic tissue apoptosis; in this way it will be possible to reduce its volume and improve the symptomatology. Additionally, CR will allow us to evaluate the potential benefits it has on certain metabolic diseases (diabetes, dyslipidemia, obesity, hypertension, etc.), anthropometric values (BMI, abdominal perimeter and skin folds) and autonomic nervous system functionality (HRV) .

NCT ID: NCT03668457 Not yet recruiting - Depressive Disorder Clinical Trials

A Multi-component Intervention to Improve Medication Adherence in People With Depressive Disorders

Start date: September 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Objective: The study of medication adherence in depression (MAPDep study) aims to evaluate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a multi-component strategy to enhance patient-centered care to improve adherence toward medications in patients with depression, formed by an educational intervention to psychiatrists and/or a collaborative care intervention group to patients and relatives plus a reminder system through the use of a mobile APP. Methods: The objective will be assessed under an open multicenter, clinical controlled trial with random allocation by clusters to one of three interventions or to usual care (control arm). In group 1 only patients and family members receive intervention, in group 2 only psychiatrists receive intervention, and group 3 is a combined intervention for patients and psychiatrists. The main measure will be the change in medication adherence rate. Secondary endpoints are depression, emotional distress, health-related quality of life, physical functioning, patients' knowledge about their medications, provider beliefs regarding patient-centeredness, and healthcare resource utilization.
