The purpose of this study is to comparatively assess the potential antiinflammatory effects
of intravenous lipid emulsions rich in omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and olive oil
versus intravenous lipid emulsions made exclusively with MCT and LCT on the evolution of
patients with severe acute pancreatitis during the period in needing artificial nutrition
support with total parenteral nutrition so unique.
The project involve evaluation of a web-based nutrition education program and pilot-testing
of a new smartphone app for real-time data logging to identify factors causing glycemic

This study examined the relationships between maternal body composition, placental function,
and fetal nutrition and body composition, and sought to determine the most accurate method
of maternal body composition analysis in late pregnancy.
The purpose of this study is to determine wether a complementary therapy consisting of a
combined medication of selenium, milk thistle, goldenrod and bromelain and a consultation
concerning nutrition and physical activity can reduce side effects of a chemotherapy in
breast cancer patients.
This human dietary intervention study with a cross-over design aims to investigate the
effect of two different diurnal patterns of meal composition on peripheral circadian clocks
and energy metabolism in healthy men.
Neonates with congenital/acquired gastrointestinal disorders are at high risk for Parenteral
Nutrition Associated Cholestasis (PNAC). Besides enteral nutrition, standard therapies to
prevent and treat PNAC have been limited and marginal. Recently, the dose and composition of
standard intravenous fat emulsions have implicated in the development and progression of
In this study, neonates with congenital/acquired gastrointestinal disorders will be

The investigators first aim is to compare the EE and BEE in critically ill patients in
Taiwan. The second aim of this study is to examine protein requirements in different age
groups in critically ill patients, and their relationship to factors causing inadequate
enteral nutrition, duration of mechanical ventilation, newly diagnosed infection and
duration of intensive care unit (ICU) stay.
This study aims to analyse the effect of two total parenteral nutrition diets with lipid
emulsions of different compositions on the incidence of nosocomial infection in critical
patients. One diet will contain an MCT/LCT emulsion concentrated to 20% (50:50 ratio) and
the other will comprise an MCT/LCT/fish oil emulsion (50:40:10 ratio). The secondary
objective of this study is to analyse mortality in hospital and up to 6 months of discharge.

This study will evaluate the impact of a Media-Smart Youth (MSY) curriculum on adolescent
knowledge and behavioral intent regarding media messages, nutrition, and physical activity.
The study is part of the U.S. Government's efforts to fight obesity and increase physical
activity among American youth. The MSY program seeks to empower adolescents to make
healthful choices about nutrition and physical activity by helping them understand how media
can influence ... Read More
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate changes in functional status that result
from an Exercise-Nutrition Program (ENP) targeted toward older adults residing at senior
- The primary hypothesis is that over the 6-month intervention period subjects in the
intervention group will realize significant improvements in lower extremity function
compared to a control group.
To evaluate changes in ... Read More
The purpose of this study is to measure the independent and combined effects of
interventions that improve sanitation, water quality, handwashing, and nutrition on child
health and development in the first years of life.
This multi-center, prospective, randomized comparative effectiveness intervention study will
evaluate continuous feeding (CGF) and bolus gastric feeding (BGF) protocols and their effect
on delivery of prescribed nutrition and feeding intolerance in mechanically ventilated
critically ill children for up through 24 hours post achievement goal feeds or exclusion
from feeding protocol, whichever comes first, to a maximum of 10 days.
Surgery puts a lot of stress on the body, and during recovery from surgery, the body uses a
lot of energy to help with healing and getting stronger. Often, sugars are given before
surgery to help give the body an energy boost. Lipid solutions can also be used as an energy
source and are commonly used as supplements in patients needing long-term nutrition from an
intravenous route (e.g., total parenteral nutrition) when they can not eat by mouth for a
medical ... Read More
A randomized, parallel-group, pilot study comparing the effect of the early addition of
intravenous protein to enteral feeding as tolerated versus enteral feedings as tolerated
alone immediately post traumatic injury.
Primary: To determine that early and adequate nutritional support will improve protein
economy in the first week post -injury as measured by nitrogen balance. We hypothesize that
an improvement in nitrogen balance with early maximized protein ... Read More
To determine the impact of nutritional supplementation with whey protein on postoperative
functional capacity in patients undergoing colorectal surgery for cancer.It is hypothesized
that, compared with a control group receiving nutrition counselling only, patients receiving
nutritional counselling along with preoperative and postoperative nutritional supplements
will have a significantly improved change in functional walking capacity from baseline to 8
weeks ... Read More
During pregnancy nutrition demands change and the pregnant woman needs to adjust her food
intake and take into consideration the corrected daily recommendations for micro and macro
nutrients. Pregnant woman tend to suffer from hyperemesis and this affects their food
Amongst pregnant women with Diabetes the glucose balance is extremely important during

The present study is based on cross-sectional data from the baseline investigations carried
out in OPUS School Meal Study - a randomized crossover study carried out in 9 primary
schools in Denmark 2011-2012. Approximately 800 Danish school children from 3rd and 4th
grades (8-12 year olds) took part in these baseline investigations of socioeconomic status,
pubertal status, growth status, learning abilities, well-being, sleep, physical activity and
