NCT ID: NCT03921970 Active, not recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

Ultrasound-Guided Erector Spinae Plane Block Following Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery

Start date: November 1, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Bariatric surgery has been widely used in the treatment of obesity in recent years. It has been shown to be effective in reaching the ideal weight and reducing obesity-induced comorbidities. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is defined as the first-step bariatric surgery for patients in the high surgical risk group. It has been shown that the laparoscopic approach has lower complication rates, shorter hospital stays, and earlier mobilization compared to open surgery. However, postoperative pain management is very important because it might cause major morbidity, especially pulmonary complications in the early postoperative period. The ultrasound (US) guided erector spina plane (ESP) block is a novel interfacial plan block defined by Forero et al. at 2016. ESP block provides thoracic analgesia at T5 level and abdominal analgesia at T7-9 level. In the literature, there is not still any randomized study evaluating ESP block efficiency for postoperative analgesia management after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy surgery.

NCT ID: NCT03915808 Active, not recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

The Effects of Supplementation of Conjugated Linoleic Acid on Body Fat Reduction

Start date: March 27, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This is a double-blinded randomized controlled trial, to evaluate the effectiveness of daily supplementation of 3.2 g CLA on body fat reduction and lipid profile in overweight or obese Chinese adults, during a lifestyle counselling-based weight loss.

NCT ID: NCT03911583 Active, not recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

Effectiveness of PUSH Notifications From a Mobile App for Improving the Body Composition of Overweight or Obese Women

Start date: January 1, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

A clinical three-armed assay has been established to permit an evaluation of the effectiveness of implementing PUSH notifications in the actions orientated towards improving body composition through the establishment of dietary patterns and an increase in physical activity.

NCT ID: NCT03891368 Active, not recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

Study of a Learning Collaborative to Implement Health Promotion in Mental Health

Start date: November 26, 2014
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Healthcare organizations have increasingly formed quality-improvement Learning Collaboratives to improve care for specific populations; however, there are few data on the effectiveness of this strategy compared to conventional training approaches. The primary aim of this cluster randomized implementation trial is to evaluate the effectiveness of a virtual learning collaborative (VLC) in the implementation of a lifestyle intervention for persons with serious mental illness (SMI) in routine mental health settings, compared to typical implementation consisting of site training and one-on-one individual technical assistance (TA). The investigators hypothesize that VLC compared to TA will be associated with greater Program Participation, Program Fidelity, and a greater proportion of participants achieving clinically significant weight loss.

NCT ID: NCT03885115 Active, not recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

Lace Up and Move: Structured After School Intervention for Hispanic and African American Youth

LUAM
Start date: November 28, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to test the efficacy of Lace Up and Move (LUAM), a structured after-school exercise intervention, designed to increase moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and enhance sleep quality among Hispanic and African American (AA) boys and girls.

NCT ID: NCT03868683 Active, not recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

The Glycemic Effect of Added Sugar on Bake Beans

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

To investigate the effect of added sugar to bake beans on glycemic and insulinemic response.

NCT ID: NCT03845478 Active, not recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

Effect of the Prescription of 10,000 Steps Per Day Using a Pedometer APP in the Body Composition of Overweight Adults

Start date: January 1, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study aimed the effect of the Accupedo pedometer smartphone app intervention, with goal setting of walking prescription of 10,000 steps per day, in overweight adults.

NCT ID: NCT03833791 Active, not recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

Effect of Different Physical Programs on the Body Composition of Adult Women With an Initial Body Fat >30%

Start date: January 1, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Compare the Effect of Different Physical Programs on the Body Composition of Adult Women With a Total Body Fat Percentage ≥ 30 % at the Beginning of the Test.

NCT ID: NCT03816150 Active, not recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

Reduce Sedentary Behavior at Work

Start date: June 13, 2016
Phase:
Study type: Observational

Prior research suggests that sedentary behavior is detrimental to health, independent of exercise activity. Sedentary behavior is defined as behaviors that involve low levels of energy expenditure ≤1.5 metabolic equivalents (including sitting, watching TV, reading, and driving). Due to the high burden of sedentary behaviors in modern-day societies, this has potential implications for novel intervention strategies to reduce sitting (outside of regular exercise activity) and improve health. In addition, the modern workplace fosters sedentary behavior, and sedentary jobs now make up more than 80% of the workforce. The goal of this project is to implement interventions to reduce sedentary behavior at work and evaluate their impact on physiologic parameters and markers of disease. Specifically, the investigators/study team will use direct measurement of vascular endothelial function as one of our outcomes. This is important since conduit artery endothelial function, assessed by arterial flow-mediated dilation (FMD), is a powerful indicator of vascular inflammation and predictor of future cardiovascular events.

NCT ID: NCT03811197 Active, not recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

Efficacy of Diet and Hypnotic Suggestions or Telemedicine in Obesity Management

TASTY
Start date: October 13, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The aim of the study is the assessment of the effectiveness of medical nutrition therapy (MNT) among obese patients, including a well-balanced low-calories diet, an individual dietary counseling conducted by dietitians and supported by telemedicine (T) or hypnotic suggestions (HS). The study will cover a group of 90 adult patients, both sexes, with obesity (BMI ≥30 kg/m^2) undergoing MNT a dietetic treatment. Three arms are planned in the study scheme, according to the scheme: Group 1 - individual MNT (30 people); Group 2 -individual MNT and T (30 people); Group 3 - individual MNT and HS (30 people). The authors hope that the results of the study will allow to develop a new model of the most effective management of obesity, resulting in weight reduction and maintaining this effect over time. The results obtained during the study will also allow to assess the impact of the therapy applied on lifestyle changes, dietary habits and the knowledge about the disease among obese patients.
