Recruitment of obese children, classification according to sleep questionnaire and randomization in two groups to perform nutritional and sleep intervention. . One group receives dietary intervention through recommendations. A group receives dietary and sleep intervention through recommendations. An analysis of the melatonin profile and metabolic and inflammatory status is performed by biochemistry at the beginning and end of the intervention. Determine if the intervention has improved the health of obese children.
Prevalence rates of childhood obesity have reached alarming levels. As childhood obesity may already be associated with serious comorbidities, obese adolescents are at significantly higher risk for obesity and increased morbidity and mortality during adulthood. Combined lifestyle interventions, which include regular physical activity and dietary restriction, have been shown to result in most significant improvements in cardiovascular function and their associated factors in the pediatric and adolescent population with obesity. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of a combined exercise and diet intervention on cardiovascular function and their associated factors in obese children.
The effects of food additives on body weight in humans are largely unknown. This is a before-and-after feasibility study in 5 obese adults who will be followed for 5 months. Eligible participants with meet with the study team and will be taught how to limit the exposure to the studied food additives in their diet. Participants will also be asked to limit eating out to a maximum of 2 days per week. Primary outcomes in this study are recruitment rate, retention rate and adherence to the proposed dietary intervention.

This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple ascending dose study in subjects with obesity. AMG 598 will be evaluated in approximately 108 subjects to assess safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamic effects.
Obesity is a public health problem, given its prevalence (15% in France in 2012, Obépi survey) but also by the complications that it generates. We were firstly, intersted in bone mineral density during obesity. We were able to confirm in an observational study that BMD (Z-score)was augmented. We also showed, for the first time, that this increase in Z-score was dependent on sex, severity of obesity and age but also bone site. If the increase in BMD at the level of the bearing zones seems logically to be explained by the hypothesis that the mechanical stresses have an osteogenic effect on the bone tissue, the latter can not in any way respond to the concomitant increase in BMD at non-bearing areas such as the radius.These results suggest that changes in certain systemic compounds induced by obesity may interfere with bone metabolism. recent data also suggest a change in the concentration of pro-glucagon peptides (GLP-1, glicentin, glucagon, etc.) in obese subjects and in bariatric surgery). Although body composition and its variation after surgery could be largely involved in the modification of these peptides, no data on these potential relationships is currently available. However, no data are available for baseline body composition and weight loss data. Finally, 80% of obesity is associated with insulin resistance, a key mechanism in the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes. A metabolically healthy obesity phenotype is described, although the definition criteria are not consensual.The evolution of this phenotype with aging and with the duration of evolution of obesity is not well described. Our goal is to create a database of weight-bearing patients in the care setting and to determine the "hormonal dialogue" between peripheral (muscular and adipose) and bone tissues, which may be associated with changes in body composition during obesity and aging, and that according to sex.
This trial studies how well exercise and nutrition education work in improving physical function and quality of life in older breast cancer survivors. Exercise and nutrition education may help to improve the level of fitness, cardiovascular health, and quality of life in breast cancer survivors.
Obesity before and during pregnancy is associated with a higher risk for a number of obstetric and metabolic complications in women and their offspring. Of particular importance, obese women have a higher risk of developing gestational diabetes and preeclampsia. In addition, obese women have larger offspring who have a higher risk for the development of obesity and diabetes; both largely attributed to higher maternal glycemia and glucose intolerance during pregnancy. Thus, identifying rehabilitative interventions that improve maternal and offspring metabolic and cardiovascular health in obese pregnancy are critical and have immediate and generational impact. Resistance and aerobic exercise training is a clinical staple for improving musculoskeletal, metabolic and cardiovascular health in non-gravid adolescents and adults with obesity however little is known regarding the effects of exercise during obese pregnancy. This study proposes to collect preliminary data on the independent effects of acute aerobic and resistance rehabilitative exercise on glucose metabolism and vascular function during pregnancy in n=15 obese women in order to inform a large, multisite clinical trial examining the acute and chronic effects of aerobic and resistance exercise on glucose metabolism and vascular function in normal weight, overweight and obese women during pregnancy.
This pivotal, phase 3 study is designed to confirm the efficacy and safety of setmelanotide, a potent melanocortin receptor type 4 (MC4R) agonist, for the treatment of obesity and hyperphagia in patients with Bardet Biedl syndrome (BBS) or Alström syndrome (AS). The study's primary efficacy endpoint will evaluate the proportion of patients (≥12 years of age at baseline) who lose ≥10% of their baseline body weight following approximately (~) 52 weeks of treatment with setmelanotide compared to a historical control rate. The study will consist of 3 treatment periods. Eligible patients will enter a 14 week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled treatment period (Period 1) that will be followed by a 38 week open label treatment period (Period 2) in which all patients will receive setmelanotide. The primary analysis will be performed after Period 2. Following Period 2, patients will continue open-label treatment for 14 weeks (Period 3) after which they may be enrolled into a separate treatment extension study.
Time restricted feeding (TRF) is a novel type of intermittent calorie restriction diet that involves eating a daily period of 8 hours or less. This is a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effect of time restricted feeding (TRF) on weight loss and cardiometabolic risk factors in obese adults over 12 months compared to continuous energy restriction (CER).
