This is a cross-sectional study investigating the palatability of an oral dispersible tablet with no pharmacologically active agent (carrier tablet) in children without underlying acute or chronic disease aged 2 to 10 years of age.
Effects of GLP-2 and GIP on bone remodeling in healthy young men.
The extent to which resistance exercise training and protein timing effects localized (belly fat) and systemic (whole body) fat metabolism in resistance-trained women is unknown. Therefore, this study will assess subcutaneous abdominal adipose tissue lipolytic rate and whole body substrate utilization over the course of two trials: 1) consuming casein protein during the day, and 2) consuming casein protein at night, before bed.
The production of protein rich animal products is associated with a large environmental burden, and with ethical considerations. Additionally, the over-consumption of meat might be associated with detrimental effects to health. Using mycoprotein, a food ingredient derived from the fermentation of a fungus, as a meat substitute could result in environmental benefits, and could have a role in managing obesity, diabetes and improving metabolic health. However, naturally produced mycoprotein has a high nucleotide content and little is known about the impact of nucleotides in uric acid levels and other health markers. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of a meal based on nucleotide rich mycoprotein on uric acid concentrations and other markers of health.
The purpose of this clinical study is to validate the SpO2 accuracy of the Medline ReNewal pulse oximetry sensors during non-motion conditions over the range of 70-100% SaO2 as compared to arterial blood samples assessed by CO-Oximetry. The end goal is to provide supporting documentation for the SpO2 accuracy validation of the ReNewal sensors. It is required that the Accuracy Root Mean Square (ARMS) performance of the ReNewal pulse oximetry sensors will meet a specification of 3 or better in non-motion conditions for the range of 70 - 100% SaO2 thereby demonstrating an acceptable SpO2 accuracy performance specification.
This study is designed to evaluate the impact of team-based goals and performance-based incentives for community-based health workers on health-promoting behaviors among women related to reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health and nutrition in Bihar, India. The intervention was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and implemented from 2012 to 2014. Health sub-centers in the catchment areas of five blocks (sub-districts) of the district of Bengusarai were randomly assigned to treatment or control arms (38 sub-centers were assigned to each). Data were collected in the Intervention and Control areas from mothers of infants 0-12 months at baseline and at 2.5-year follow-up, to assess the intervention's effects on quality and quantity of FLW home visits, postnatal health behaviors, and among older infants/toddlers, complementary feeding and vaccination. Difference in difference analyses were used to assess outcome effects in this quasi experimental study. The TBGI intervention was implemented in areas where the BMGF-funded Ananya program (official title: Bihar Family Health Initiative) was also being implemented. Thus, the impact is of the [TBGI intervention + Ananya] versus [Ananya alone]. The Ananya program was developed and implemented via a partnership of BMGF and the Government of Bihar. The ultimate purpose of Ananya was to reduce maternal, newborn, and child mortality; fertility; and child undernutrition in Bihar, India. Ananya involved multi-level interventions designed to build front line health worker (FLW) capacities and reach to communities and households, as well as to strengthen public health facilities and quality of care to improve maternal and neonatal care and health behaviors, and thus survival. It was implemented from 2012 to 2014. Eight focal districts in western and central Bihar received Ananya, while 30 districts did not.
Study examined the effectiveness of daily self-weighing to prevent age related weight gain.
To be aware of oneself as a unique entity in the world occurs early in human development and is the prerequisite of normal social functioning. The disturbance of self representation characterizes a variety of mental disorders such as autism and schizophrenia. Negative self-bias was found to serve as the core cognitive mechanism of depression disorder. However, there was no evidence to show the reason lead to negative bias. In the current study, investigators hypothesized that the blurring self representation was the neural correlates in depression disorder.
1. Plaque level in subjects using the Modified Circular method is different from that in subjects using natural tooth brushing method. 2. Gingivitis level in subjects using the Modified Circular method is different from that in subjects using natural tooth brushing method. 3. Level of plaque after using the Modified Circular method is different from that before using the method. 4. Level of gingivitis after using the Modified Circular method is different from that before using the method.
