NCT ID: NCT05754359 Not yet recruiting - Physical Activity Clinical Trials

Development and Feasibility of an Intervention to Increase Physical Activity Among Young Children

Start date: March 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The aim of this study is to develop, implement, and evaluate a novel intervention to increase physical activity and reduce sedentary behaviour among pre-school children, with the ultimate goal of reducing obesity among this age group. This study will provide evidence-based recommendations for reducing the prevalence of obesity among preschool-aged children, and the suggestions will help improve the physical activity intervention programme in preschoolers.

NCT ID: NCT05735600 Not yet recruiting - Childhood Obesity Clinical Trials

Latinx Family Wellness

Start date: March 20, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Childhood is an opportune time to intervene in obesity because behaviors that are developed during this time can have long-lasting effects and disrupt trajectories of obesity. This proposal aims to test the feasibility (i.e., participant acceptance, adherence, and retention) of a family-oriented intervention "AyUDA" (Aprender y Utilizar Decisiones Apreciables-Learning and Utilizing Significant Choices). The culturally tailored, two-arm adapted intervention to engage Latinx parents in healthy feeding and lifestyle practices for their children 2-5 years old, thereby reducing early childhood overweight and obesity. The investigators will use concepts of the Social-Ecological Framework for Obesity among Latinx, and the Social Learning Theory that emphasizes the importance of observing, modeling, and imitating behaviors. This approach includes a community engagement partnership with one clinic that serves a great number of Latinx families with 2-5 aged children in Central Kentucky (General Pediatric Clinic-Clinica Amiga). The investigators propose a two-arm randomized clinical trial (RCT) randomly assigning participants to either a telehealth deep cultural level group or a culturally traditional educational group in a sample of 40 Latinx families who will be followed for six months after the intervention. Moreover, investigators will explore short-term changes of the intervention on dietary behavior changes and anthropometric measurements among family members. The feasibility study will inform effect sizes that will be used to estimate statistical power for a future R01 on Community Level Interventions to Improve Minority Health and Reduce Health Disparities, National Institute of Health (NIH).

NCT ID: NCT05724303 Recruiting - Obesity Clinical Trials

The Effects of Integrative Neuromuscular Training on Physical Function in Overweight Children

Start date: February 24, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Childhood obesity is an ongoing and increasing issue, resulting in changes in body mass which cause biomechanical alterations in the lower limbs. Exercise interventions have been effectiveness at causing positive changes to the lower limbs gait, strength and functioning but children often report lack of enjoyment from the sessions which inhibits long term changes. This intervention takes a neuromuscular exercise approach whilst considering the psychological needs of children to motivate them to participate in the intervention and physical activity.

NCT ID: NCT05697367 Enrolling by invitation - Childhood Obesity Clinical Trials

Swiss Childhood Health and Nutrition Survey 2023

Start date: February 1, 2023
Study type: Observational

This study will repeat previous studies done in 2002, 2007 2012 and 2017/18, in order to monitor the trend in the prevalence of overweight and obesity in 6-12 year old children in Switzerland over the entire period. Furthermore, additional risk factors will be assessed for the later development of NCD using a questionnaire comparable to the one used in 2017/18.

NCT ID: NCT05676281 Recruiting - Stress Clinical Trials

Healing Experiences of Adversity Among Latinos (HEALthy4You)

Start date: December 20, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Healing Experiences of Adversity Among Latinos (HEALthy4You) is a project funded by the California Initiative for the Advancement of Precision Medicine ("Advancing a Precision Population Health Approach to ACEs to Reduce Health Disparities"). The long-term goal of this project is to develop community-centered, culturally Appropriate, precision Interventions that can be delivered within Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers (FQHCs) for Latino Families, to reduce Adverse Child Events (ACES) risks and treat childhood obesity. UCSD in conjunction with Family Health Centers of San Diego (FHCSD) will conduct a 2x2 factorial trial with four groups meant to determine what combination of intervention components influence family protective factors (a key marker for reduced risk of the deleterious effects of systemic and family/individual stressors that are a critical part of ACEs) and childhood obesity.

NCT ID: NCT05622513 Completed - Childhood Obesity Clinical Trials

Phthalate Esters and Childhood Obesity

Start date: September 1, 2016
Study type: Observational

Phthalate esters have been considered closely related with childhood obesity, but the existing studies revealed inconsistent results. This study was desigened to investigate the association between phthalate esters and childhood obesity in China.

NCT ID: NCT05606731 Not yet recruiting - Childhood Obesity Clinical Trials

Family Intervention to Prevent Childhood Obesity

Start date: January 9, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Consumption of sweetened beverages, media-viewing, and physical activity patterns are often established during early childhood, and family-based obesity interventions show effectiveness in shaping healthy behaviors and weight outcomes for young children, including Latino children. Missing from these interventions, however, are methods to increase accessibility and dissemination to multiple family caregivers. The proposed work will use a randomized study design to evaluate the impact a family-based early childhood obesity intervention for Latino families that incorporates evidence-based strategies of in-person childhood obesity interventions, mobile phones, and leverages important determinants of Latino health (e.g. familism, language) in order to decrease ethnic disparities in childhood obesity and cardiovascular risk.

NCT ID: NCT05527938 Recruiting - Childhood Obesity Clinical Trials

Web-based Interventions on Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) in Obese Children

Start date: September 30, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The web-based continuity of care intervention model to provide comprehensive nursing interventions for obese children with NAFLD, always tracking their performance status, enabling them to grasp the knowledge of healthy weight loss, develop good lifestyle habits, and reduce their weight, thus reducing the incidence of NAFLD in children.

NCT ID: NCT05526274 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

Clinical Epidemiology of NAFLD in Children and Adolescents

Start date: October 2022
Study type: Observational

Background: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is rapidly increasing alongside overweight and obesity, not only in adults but also in children and adolescents. It is unknown what impact the development of NAFLD in childhood may have in later life. The importance of early detection and treatment lies in its potential for progression to cirrhosis, liver cancer and liver-related death, as well as its associated extrahepatic comorbidities. Vibration-Controlled Transient Elastography (VCTE) with Controlled Attenuation Parameter (CAP) is an effective, non-invasive and safe diagnostic method to estimate the degree of fibrosis and steatosis in the liver, but little is known about its applicability in the paediatric population. Objectives: 1) To assess the prevalence of significant liver fibrosis (LSM≥6,5kPa) using VCTE, and that of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (≥225dB/m) using CAP in children and adolescents. 2) To determine the optimal cut-off points of the CAP to achieve maximum concordance with the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) findings in the diagnosis of mild, moderate and severe NAFLD in children and adolescents. Methods: cross-sectional population-based study which will include 2.866 subjects aged ≥9 to ≤16 years. Participants will undergo: anamnesis, physical examination, blood extraction, VCTE, MRI and questionnaires on socio-demographic data, personal and family medical history and lifestyle assessment. Applicability and relevance: the study aims to establish the foundations for the use of VCTE in children and adolescents in order to achieve early diagnosis of NAFLD. Moreover, it will serve to understand in further detail the disease and to identify the risk groups of children and adolescents who may be at risk of developing it. Ultimately, this will help determine to which subgroups of the population we need to target resources for prevention and early detection of this entity, as well as possible intervention for its treatment.
