The main goal of study is to provide a unique multidimensional picture of the health of the population with simultaneous optimal standards of sampling, processing and storing of data and biomaterial that will allow discoveries of novel mechanisms in the development and progression of common civilization diseases. In the effect it will improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
This study is designed to evaluate the impact of muscle relaxation during laparoscopic gastrectomy on oncological benefit, especially with obese patients over BMI 25. The primary endpoint is number of harvested lymph node that is critical point regarding quality of surgery in gastric cancer treatment. The secondary endpoint is intraoperative bleeding, surgeons' satisfaction. The patients were randomly assigned to two groups using a computer-generated randomization table : 196 persons - Deep neuromuscular block group (98persons) - Moderate neuromuscular group (98persons)
Pediatric obesity interventions for low-income populations are increasingly delivered in children's homes, which may make treatment more accessible to families and enhance the potency of the intervention in several ways. This randomized trial will directly test whether delivering family-based behavioral interventions for pediatric overweight/obesity in the home setting improves weight loss outcomes in low-income children relative to medical center-based treatment. The trial will also quantify the cost-effectiveness of home visitation, and explore the mechanisms accounting for observed treatment effects
The study team's research fills the gap in the obesity literature where BMI with a cut point of 35 is frequently used to show the association between BMI and metabolic syndrome biomarkers. The study team was unable to locate any papers that showed the association between metabolic syndrome biomarkers and BMI from 35 to 69.9, and especially graphically as this clinical team has presented.
The overarching objective of our work is to provide an inexpensive and scalable m-health tool to increase both volume and intensity of physical activity and reduce sedentary behavior in patients at risk for type 2 diabetes. The objective of this study is to pilot test MapTrek, a text-messaging based intervention.
This double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized trial will assess whether 14 days of oral carnitine supplementation modifies mitochondrial fatty acid processing in healthy young adults.
The Pitt Retiree Study (PRS) disseminates a novel, yet practical, diabetes prevention program among Medicare eligible adults in Western Pennsylvania. This study will provide 4, and 12 month outcome data (with a no treatment follow-up assessment at 24 months) to help determine whether a continued contact group telephone intervention is feasible and effective in enhancing health outcomes and physical functional ability in high risk adults (aged 65-80) with obesity and cardiometabolic risk factors .
The First 1000 Days (conception to age 2) is a crucial period for the development and prevention of obesity and its adverse consequences in mother-child pairs and their families. The overall aim of the First 1000 Days program is to work across early-life systems to prevent obesity, promote healthy routines and behaviors, address social determinants of health, and reduce health disparities among vulnerable children and families at the MGH Chelsea and Revere HealthCare Centers, and DotHouse Health. The study aims to simultaneously implement and evaluate an obesity prevention program across early life systems to reduce the prevalence of obesity risk factors within racial/ethnic minority families, close the gap in maternal-child health disparities, and assess and address social determinants of health.
The aim of the Cork and Kerry Study Phase II (Mitchelstown cohort recruited 2010-11) is to provide an updated profile of glucose tolerance status, cardiovascular health and their related factors in an Irish adult general population sample and to compare the findings with those obtained during baseline assessment of Phase I of the Cork and Kerry study (1998) and the rescreen (2008).
The purpose of the current study is to test if weight change is differentially affected by consumption of foods that are identical in carbohydrate (i.e. sugar) but vary in food form over 1 month.
