NCT ID: NCT03734627 Enrolling by invitation - Surgery Clinical Trials

Gastrointestinal Nutrient Transit and Enteroendocrine Function After Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery

EndoGut
Start date: July 1, 2016
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The incidence of oesophagogastric cancer has increased by 400% since the 1970s in Ireland and the United Kingdom. In addition, refinement of perioperative management and the now widespread use of multimodal protocols for patients with locally advanced disease have significantly improved outcomes for patients with oesophagogastric cancer treatable with curative intent. Despite significant advances in chemoradiotherapy, surgical resection remains the primary curative option. Unintentional weight loss and nutritional complications represent serious concerns for patients after radical resection, even among those who remain free from recurrent disease in the long-term. A study from the Swedish Esophageal and Cardia Cancer Registry reported a mean three year weight loss of 10.8% among disease-free patients, with 33.8% of this cohort demonstrating malnutrition at three years post-oesophagectomy. Mechanisms contributing to weight loss for disease-free patients after upper gastrointestinal surgery are poorly understood, however an association between increasing magnitude of weight loss and the presence of increased satiety is described. Our recent studies at SJH have demonstrated four fold elevated postprandial satiety gut hormone concentrations after oesophagectomy, compared with baseline preoperative values. Postprandial gut hormone levels correlate significantly with postprandial symptoms and altered appetite at 3 months postoperatively, and with body weight loss at 2 years postoperatively. However, the mechanism leading to exaggerated postprandial gut hormone production after upper gastrointestinal surgery is poorly understood, limiting targeted therapeutic options. In this study, we aim to characterise the role of altered nutrient transit and enteroendocrine cell function in the pathophysiology of excessive post-prandial gut hormone responses after upper gastrointestinal surgery. To do this, we will measure the gut hormone response to a standardised 400 kcal meal, as per previous studies, while concurrently assessing gastrointestinal transit time, and enteroendocrine cell morphology and function. In this way, we will determine whether the magnitude of the postprandial gut hormone response correlates with the rate of nutrient transit into the enteroendocrine L-cell rich small intestine, and whether enteroendocrine cell adaptation occurs after oesophagectomy. Furthermore, we have previously observed that gut hormone suppression using octreotide is associated with increased ad libitum among subjects after upper gastrointestinal cancer surgery (Elliott JA et al, Annals of Surgery, 2015). The mechanism of action of octreotide may relate to SSTR-5-mediated negative feedback to the enteroendocrine L-cell, but this medication may additionally reduce enteroendocrine L-cell responses through its inhibitory effect on gastrointestinal motility - reducing the rapidity with which nutrients are delivered to the small intestine - and small intestinal nutrient sensing via inhibition of the Na+-dependent glucose transporter SGLT-18-10. Through conduction of this double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled crossover study, we aim to establish the mechanism of action of octreotide-mediated increased food intake in patients after gastrointestinal surgery. This may inform the design of future targeted interventions for this patient group.

NCT ID: NCT03669809 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Metabolism and Nutrition Disorder

The Biological Rhythm of Human Metabolite

Start date: May 1, 2011
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The circadian regulation in mammals have been known for a long time. A special group of clock genes, organized in feedback loops, are responsible for the circadian regulation in both the SCN and peripheral organs. The central clock is mainly entrained by the light-dark cycle, while the peripheral ones in organs such as liver and intestine, are more influenced by the feeding-fasting cycles. The coordination of central and peripheral clocks is thought to be essential in the maintenance of physiological homeostasis.This study aim to investigate the association between biological rhythm and metabolism.

NCT ID: NCT03661879 Recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

Research Study of a New Medicine (NNC9204-1706) in People With Overweight or Obesity

Start date: September 13, 2018
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

The study is testing a new medicine for weight control in people with overweight or obesity. The aim of the study is to find out how safe the study medicine is and how it works in the body. Participants will either get NNC9204-1706 (the new study medicine) or placebo (a dummy medicine) - which treatment participants get is decided by chance. NNC9204-1706 is a new medicine which cannot be prescribed by doctors. Participants will get an injection under the skin of participants' stomach each morning for 10 weeks. A medical tool called NovoPen®4 will be used for the injection. Participants must change the part of the pen including the medicine (the cartridge) each day. The study will last for about 16 weeks. Participants will have at least 17 clinic visits and 10 phone calls with the study doctor. At certain times during the study, participants will have blood drawn and 3 different kinds of heart tests (electrocardiograms). Study doctor will ask participants to answer mental health surveys.

Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study compares food insecurity disclosure rates in face-to-face interviews versus electronic formats, and explores caregiver preferences regarding screening modality and location, in a large, urban pediatric emergency department. Half of the participants were screened for food insecurity verbally, face-to-face by a research assistant, and half of the participants were screened electronically by a tablet.

NCT ID: NCT03643341 Recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

Family Healthy Living Early Intervention Program

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

The Childhood Healthy Weights Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a family-based pilot program that will promote healthy lifestyle practices for families whose children are off the healthy weight trajectory (e.g., BMI ≥ 85th percentile for age and sex) that do not need the intensive services of medically supervised programs. It is a lifestyle behaviour approach for promoting healthy weights in children. The EIP program consists of 10 weekly intervention sessions (1.5 hours per session) followed by 4 maintenance sessions and is age specific (age 8-12). During the intervention, participants will also have access to digital educational content that is supplementary to what is provided during the individual sessions. The program will be integrated and aligned with existing BC-specific childhood healthy weights programs (e.g. the HealthLinkBC Eating and Activity Program for Kids). The EIP pilot will run from October-December 2018 with 8 child programs (age 8-12). Participants who do not qualify for this program (e.g., BMI ≤ 85th percentile for age and sex) will be offered a 10 week online program which is similar in educational content as the EIP program.

NCT ID: NCT03632200 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Head and Neck Cancer

Nutritional Course of Care After Surgical Treatment at the Patients Affected by a Cancer of the Head and by the Neck

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

Whatever are the strategies of coverage, the consideration of the state of bad nutrition is not often the priority. According to the last recommendations (2012) of the French Society Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (SFNEP), the surgeries of the cancers of the VADS are not listed among surgeries with high morbidity. So the specific recommendations for the patients undernourished with surgery with low morbidity, only a personalized dietary advice and oral nutritional supplements are recommended in preoperative. There is no specific recommendation in post-operative. Two groups of cancer patients of the VADS will be compared: a control group benefiting from a nutritional coverage based on the current recommendations of the SFNEP, an experimental group benefiting from an improved nutritional coverage. In preoperative, all the patients of experimental group will benefit from dietary advice during a multidisciplinary specific consultation. In post-operative, a dietetic consultation will be set up in 7 days at the exit of hospitalization and call phone at M1, M2, M4 and M5. And for the undernourished patient will benefit a multidisciplinary consultation at the rate of a consultation a month during 6 months. In the Group control, the patients will be followed according to the current recommendations of the SFNEP.
