NCT ID: NCT04872088 Not yet recruiting - Wasting Clinical Trials

Integrated Research on Acute Malnutrition in Mali (IRAM-MALI)

Start date: May 6, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The IRAM MALI impact evaluation uses a cluster-randomized controlled study design to assess the impact of the package of integrated interventions aimed at reducing the longitudinal prevalence of wasting by reducing the incidence of child wasting, enhancing the recovery/cure rate from wasting treatment and reducing the relapse rate determined three months after post-treatment recovery from wasting. These interventions include, among other things, strengthening of community care groups (NASGs); home visits with delivery of behavioral change communication about nutrition, health and hygiene (WASH) for young children; distribution of a preventive nutritional supplement; and improved coverage of wasting screening (family MUAC and community screening), management, adherence to treatment and prevention of relapse in the health district of Koutiala, Sikasso region, Mali, West Africa.

NCT ID: NCT04867694 Not yet recruiting - Wasting Clinical Trials

Integrated Research on Acute Malnutrition in Chad

IRAM-CHAD
Start date: May 3, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The IRAM Chad impact evaluation will be based on a cluster randomized controlled trial to study the impact of the integrated and multisectoral services package (PASIM), aimed at reducing the incidence and prevalence of wasting through integrated interventions, including, among other things, strengthening the activity of community care groups, food supplementation, water treatment, and screening for wasting conducted by families.

NCT ID: NCT04866927 Completed - Clinical trials for Nutritional Deficiency

Bioavailability of Proteins From Plant Based Diets

Start date: November 25, 2019
Phase:
Study type: Observational

Proteins play an important role as structural and functional components for the human body and prevent stunting. Protein quality has a great importance in meeting the nutritional needs of populations across the world throughout the life course, particularly during pregnancy and early childhood. Dietary protein deficiency is mainly due to protein indigestibility limiting indispensable amino acids (IAAs) bioavailability. In Morocco, as it's the case in many developing countries, diet is mainly based on a large consumption of cereals, fruits, vegetables and pulses, and is generally low in meat, which is the main source of protein and IAA. The general objective of this study is to evaluate the digestibility of Fava bean proteins and bioavailability of IAA using a dual-tracer method with stable isotopes.

NCT ID: NCT04862312 Recruiting - Malnutrition Clinical Trials

Video Chat During Meals to Improve Nutritional Intake in Older Adults

VideoDining
Start date: March 31, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The VideoDining study is a Stage IB behavioral intervention development project. The objectives are to determine the feasibility and acceptability of using video chat during mealtimes (VideoDining) in community-dwelling older adults eating alone at home and to evaluate changes in nutritional intake and loneliness in response to VideoDining.

NCT ID: NCT04861649 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Fecal Microbiota Transplantation

Metabonomics of COPD and Transplanting of Faecal Bacteria in the Treatment of Its Malnutrition

Start date: March 9, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Oxidative stress can affect the balance of intestinal flora and intestinal structure of patients, resulting in intestinal flora disorder. Its bacterial metabolites stimulate the parasympathetic nerve, regulate insulin secretion and other metabolic pathways of patients through neuroendocrine regulation, resulting in abnormal energy metabolism of lipids and sugars in the digestive tract, and finally lead to malnutrition.We hypothesized that fecal bacteria transplantation could reconstruct the normal intestinal flora, restore the intestinal digestion and absorption function of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD)patients and improve the state of malnutrition.

NCT ID: NCT04859400 Not yet recruiting - Malnutrition Clinical Trials

Influence of a Home-based Nutrition and Exercise Program on Quality of Life of Palliative Cancer Outpatients

Start date: April 22, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The main purpose of the study is to investigate whether a tailor-made nutritional and exercise program including home-based sessions and regular monitoring using an application on the smartphone is effective in improving Quality of Life in patients with advanced lung or gastrointestinal tract cancer.

NCT ID: NCT04858165 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Hospital Foodservice Satisfaction; Hospital Meals Satisfaction; Elderly, Nutrition, Malnutrition in Elderly, Malnutrition

A Logical Framework for Tailor-made Paradigm Shift Hospital Foodservice to Prevent Malnutrition Among Geriatric Patients in Hospitals

Start date: September 1, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Hospital Food service is important for patient recovery by providing necessary aid with adequate meal consumption. Overall, hospital experience can influence patients' satisfaction for the foodservice quality. Thus, it is important to evaluate patient satisfaction with food service to meet consumers' needs in order to prevent malnutrition. The aim of the studies is to develop the Malaysian geriatric patients' hospital foodservice protocol (My GERYFS). There are 3 Phases in this research which is phase 1 is a multicentre cohort study conducted among elderly and healthcare professionals involved in Klang Valley Hospitals. Phase 2 for To develop a tailor-made hospital foodservice protocol for Malaysian geriatric patients with healthcare professional input and phase 3 is to determine the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of MY GERYFS protocol in a Malaysian hospital. Effectiveness of this study protocol can bring benefits to elderly to prevent malnutrition in the hospitals via foodservice.

NCT ID: NCT04857463 Enrolling by invitation - Clinical trials for Malnutrition Elderly

Study on the Nutritional Status of the Elderly in Taiwan Who Continue to Use Oral Nutrition Supplement.

Start date: May 1, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Past studies have pointed out that adequate intake of calories and protein in the elderly can deferred sarcopenia and debilitating conditions. Therefore, this study intends to use oral nutrition as a way of nutritional supplements, without affecting the subjects' normal meal intake, and supplements with snacks It is expected that there will be benefits in protein and muscle synthesis. However, the palatability of oral nutritional products will affect the effectiveness of nutritional supplements. Therefore, this test provides nutrients that are easy for the subjects to ingest with a variety of flavors, in order to achieve the test calories and protein needs.

NCT ID: NCT04851327 Not yet recruiting - Undernutrition Clinical Trials

Satiation Study With Children Attending a Tertiary Feeding Clinic

Start date: May 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This is a pilot study of children attending the Glasgow feeding clinic (GFC) which looks after children with severe feeding problems who commonly have low appetite and extreme thinness. The investigators want to find out if thin children respond to food in the same way, using an established method to assess energy compensation.

NCT ID: NCT04848129 Not yet recruiting - Eating Disorders Clinical Trials

Genetic Correlates of Wasting: a Pilot Study With Children Attending a Tertiary Feeding Clinic

Start date: May 2021
Phase:
Study type: Observational

This is a pilot study of children attending the Glasgow feeding clinic (GFC) which looks after a range of children with severe feeding problems who commonly have low appetite and extreme thinness. The investigators want to find out if these children are more likely to carry genetic markers of thinness.
