The purpose of this study is to provide intravenous omega-3 fatty acids and monitor
tolerance in subjects with prolonged parenteral nutrition dependence and parenteral
nutrition-associated cholestasis through expanded access.
Patients who accept long-term parenteral nutrition tend to suffer from liver injury. The
mechanism for this injury has two possible explanations. The first possible reason is
intrinsic toxic effects of parenteral nutrition. The second is the basic pathological
condition of intestinal failure which includes infection, bacterial translocation, etc.
Cholestasis is the lethal presentation of this kind of liver disease. Farnesoid X receptor
(FXR) is a member of ... Read More
According to several reports, the oxidative stress and the nutrition could have an impact in
the Alzheimer disease.
The association of these two parameters measurements and the cognitive impairment decline
could help in a predictive diagnosis of cognitive decline evolution in patients presenting
This is a monocentric prospective "routine care" clinical trial on patients showing
cognitive troubles especially memory complaints.

The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerance of SMOFlipid 20% in comparison
to a standard lipid emulsion Intralipid 20% in patients requiring long-term parenteral
nutrition. The safety and tolerance will be evaluated by biochemistry, hematology and
coagulation variables, vital signs and adverse events. Further objectives to evaluate are
the influence of SMOFlipid 20% on inflammation processes, the efficacy of anti-oxidative
properties of ... Read More
This study examines the impact of certified diabetes education, and the role of different
educational approaches to medical nutrition therapy. in addition the role of patient health
literacy level is assessed

The purpose of study is to build a Canadian HTPN Registry to collect pertinent demographic
and clinical data on the HTPN population in Canada and to determine the factors affecting
survival, complications and TPN-dependency. These results will help establish standards of
practice and develop future multi-center studies. This will greatly benefit the HTPN patient
Building on the success of community-based peer education and counselling in breastfeeding,
it is possible to address young child feeding and health practices in the surveyed district.
Opportunities that can optimise success and encourage behaviour change in the district
include mothers willingness to modify some feeding options; support of family members;
seasonal availability and accessibility of foods; established set-up of village peers and
existence of ... Read More
Animal source foods (ASF), such as meat and eggs, are rich in nutrients critical for growth
and development. Yet, for poor children in developing countries, ASF consumption is limited
by cost, inadequate caregiver knowledge, and lack of local production and physical
availability. The impact of HH- and village-level livestock interventions on household
dietary diversity and nutritional status in resource-poor communities is not well
established. The objective ... Read More
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if adding liquid nutrition therapy that
is given by vein to standard-of-care treatment for sepsis can help to control sepsis
symptoms better than giving standard-of-care treatment alone.
Researchers also want to compare the length of ICU and hospital stay and any side effects
between these 2 treatments.

The Worksite Nutrition Study is 22-week translational study aimed at determining how well a
worksite-based nutrition program, as compared to a control group, is able to 1) produce
clinically significant weight-loss, 2) improve cardiovascular factors, 3) decrease work
absenteeism, 4) improve overall quality of life, 5) improve diabetes control in participants
with diabetes, and 6) promote dietary adherence and acceptability. The nutrition program for
the ... Read More
The purpose of this study is to implement a nutrition education programme that was developed
for type 2 diabetic adults in a resource poor setting and to evaluate the programme's
effectiveness on health outcomes
A randomized controlled clinical trial study design will be used. One group (experimental
group) will receive the nutrition education while the other group (control group) will
receive the usual care.
Setting: Two Community health centres in ... Read More

Nutrition therapy is an essential standard of care for all critically ill patients who are
mechanically ventilated and remain in the intensive care unit for more than a few days.
The investigators plan to conduct a 4,000 patient, double-blind, randomised controlled trial
to determine if augmentation of calorie delivery using energy dense enteral nutrition in
mechanically ventilated patients improves 90 day survival when compared to routine care.
This study evaluates the impact of the introduction of a front-of-pack nutrition label on
fods and beverages sold in a campus cafeteria in France on the nutritional quality of
purchases. The design involves one site with the intervention and one control site with the
same consumer and product characteristics.
The purpose of this study is to test if a participatory, agroecological peer farmer-led
education intervention can be effective at improving legume production, food security, and
infant and young child feeding practices in Singida District, Tanzania.

This study aims to test a dietary intervention for diabetes in a medical practice setting,
with the aim of developing a model for diabetes care that can be used widely. The
investigators hypothesize that a low-fat vegan diet will be effective for management of
diabetes and will be feasible in a practice-based setting.
The aim of this study is to compare two nutritional regimes in critically ill patients.
Patients will be randomized to standard care (25 kcal per kg) or to hypocaloric nutrition
(15 kcal per kg). The main outcome will be the SOFA (sequential organ failure assessment)
score. The hypothesis is that hypocaloric hyperproteic diet decreases the incidence of
organic failure in these patients.
A prospective, multi-module intervention based on nutrition management, psychosocial
support, and a controlled home-based physical exercise training program for patients on
LVAD- support will be provided to improve outcomes in terms of survival and patients
health-related quality of life (HRQoL) for the long-term. Physical capacity, neurocognitive,
psychological factors, and adverse events will be assessed as potential independent
indicators for HRQoL.
