Feel4Diabetes-study

January 2016 - August 2019
The aim of the Feel4Diabetes-study is to develop, implement and evaluate a community-based intervention aiming to create a more supportive social and physical environment to promote lifestyle and behaviour change to prevent type 2 diabetes among families from low and middle income countries and from vulnerable groups in high income countries in Europe.
Sponsor: Harokopio University
Study type: Interventional
January 2016 - December 2019
The purpose of this study is to compare three methods for managing obesity in rural patients, to see which method will result in patients being able to attain their weight loss goal and maintain that weight loss.
Sponsor: University of Kansas
Study type: Interventional

This pilot clinical trial studies a pancreatic nutritional program for helping patients with stage I-III breast cancer who are overweight or obese lose weight. When patients have a high level of sugar in their blood, due to eating sugary foods and/or a sedentary lifestyle, the pancreas needs to work harder to digest the sugar. This can cause weight gain, obesity, and other illnesses. Breast cancer patients who are overweight and obese are more likely to have their breast cancer return. The pancreatic nutritional program is a diet and lifestyle intervention that helps protect the pancreas by keeping blood sugar levels low, and may help patients achieve sustained weight loss, improved health, better quality of life, and possibly a better outcome to their treatment.

August 2015 - December 2016
The primary purpose of this study is to quantify activation of regions of the brain associated with taste, appetite, and reward after viewing high sugar and high fat (HS/HF) images compared to control images following ingestion of (1) an artificially sweetened solution, (2) a sucrose solution, and (3) a tasteless control solution in normal weight vs. obese women. This is a repeated measures study design; hence, data are collected on three days corresponding to the three solutions. Body mass index (BMI) is a between subjects measure. 1. After consuming an artificially sweetened solution and a sucrose solution compared to a tasteless solution, viewing HS/HF food images vs. control images will result in higher activation of taste pathways (frontal operulum and anterior insula (FO/AI)) in the brain. 2. After consumption of a sucrose solution compared to an artificially sweetened solution and a tasteless solution, viewing HS/HF food images vs. control images will result in higher activation of regions of the brain associate with appetite (hypothalamus). 3. After consumption of a sucrose solution compared to an artificially sweetened solution and a tasteless solution, viewing HS/HF food images vs. control images will result in higher activation of regions of the brain associated with reward [amygdala, anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), Orbitalfrontal Cortex (OFC), and ventral tegmental area (VTA), striatum, insula] in obese but not normal weight women. After consuming an artificially sweetened solution compared to a tasteless solution, viewing HS/HF images vs. control images will result in no differences in activation of reward pathways of the brain.

Opioid sparing anesthesia is extremely important in the post-operative obese population. With more and more obese patients entering the operating room a multi-modal approach to analgesia is crucial. Finding effective alternatives to opioid therapy is the rationale of this proposal. Literature involving ketamine and magnesium in bariatric surgical patients is very sparse.

Severe childhood obesity is associated with both immediate and chronic health problems and a severe impact on psychosocial development. Medical and behavioural interventions rarely result in the significant, durable weight loss necessary to improve health outcomes. This is a randomised clinical trial where 50 adolescents, 13-15 years of age, will be randomised to either early bariatric surgery (Roux-en-Y gastric bypass) or intensive conservative treatment and possibly surgery as they have become 18 year.
