This study will test the use of phentermine and topiramate compared with placebo in helping adolescents who are at high risk for developing obesity to lose weight
Prospective, observational, multicenter study based on a registry of patients with obesity and associated comorbidities undergoing a standardized multidisciplinary weight loss method with a 2-year follow-up.
The pilot study will test the feasibility of a 16-week sleep extension intervention, in adults with obesity, to increase nighttime sleep duration, as well as reduce daytime sleepiness and sleep-related disturbance. The study will also examine changes in weight, eating behaviors, wellbeing, and blood pressure across the 16-week intervention .
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the use of an exercise phone application and a continuous glucose monitor and their impact on metabolic disease in adolescents with obesity, prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes. Participants will be asked to wear a continuous glucose monitor (Freestyle Libre) and if they are in the intervention group also participate in using an exercise phone application as well as have scheduled interval contact with a health professional in between scheduled clinic visits to assess how they are reaching their goals.
The study is a randomized clinical trial with the primary aim of determining the effectiveness of the WW intervention at reducing HbA1c in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Aim 1: To measure levels of microglia using the radiotracer [11C]PBR28 and PET brain imaging in obese (n=50) vs. lean individuals (n=50). The investigators will recruit 100 subjects who will participate in a single [11C]PBR28 scan to measure levels of TSPO, a marker of microglia. Aim 2: To determine differences in brain functional connectivity at rest and in response to a decision- making task in obese (n=50) vs. lean individuals (n=50) using fMRI imaging. The same subjects from Aim 1 will participate in a resting state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) followed by a decision making task during fMRI acquisition. Aim 3: To assess whether acute elevation of lipid levels through intralipid infusion in lean, healthy individuals (n=20) will induce microglial activation. 20 lean individuals will be recruited to participate in a paradigm that includes a baseline [11C]PBR28 scan, an infusion of intralipid, and a second [11C]PBR28 scan approximately 4 hours post intralipid infusion. The investigators will attempt to utilize subjects from aim 1 in order to use their baseline scans for this paradigm. Aim 4: To determine whether there are differences in levels of microglia between individuals with and without type 1 diabetes (n=20). 20 patients with diabetes (type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes)will be recruited to participate in a single [11C]PBR28 scan to compare to Aim 1 participants.
The purpose of this study is determine whether different antiretroviral therapy (ART) changes the effects on body fat and predict the weight change in Black and Hispanic females.
The study is investigating the use of Saxenda (liragltuide 3.0 milligrams (mg) once daily) for weight management. The primary objective is to investigate the change in body weight after initiation and use of Saxenda ® according to local clinical practice for weight management, on adult participant's in a real world setting in Turkey. The study will last for about 5 months.
The main objective is to determine the effect that supplementation with 4.8 g/day of w-3 FA [3.2g eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 1.6 g docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)] have on the inflammatory state of obese patients (BMI ≥ 35.0 kg/m2), at the metabolic, cellular and molecular levels.
This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of Tesomet (tesofensine + metoprolol) in subjects 18 years of age or older, with HO
