Symbiotic interaction between probiotics ("Living alimentary microbials supplemental, affecting positively host by improving intestinal microbial equilibrium" (Fuller, 1989)) and human digestive tract was amply experimented and seems to be an interesting solution to orientate neonates digestive flora. Many studies showed a probant efficiency of probiotic supplementation in neonates on ECUN, despite abnormally high ECUN incidence in control group. ... Read More

To evaluate the effects of synbiotic supplementation on insulin resistance, and lipid profile in subjects with metabolic syndrome, in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot study, 38 subjects with metabolic syndrome will be supplemented with either synbiotic or placebo capsules twice/day for 28 weeks. Both the synbiotic (G1) and the placebo (G2) groups will be advised to follow an energy balanced diet and physical activity recommendations. ... Read More

A randomized double-blind placebo controlled intervention study with pregnant obese women (n=440) will be conducted. The intervention will involve consumption of fish oil and/or probiotic capsules from early pregnancy until 6 months after delivery. The aim of the study is firstly to investigate the effects of the supplements on the risk of gestational diabetes mellitus and obesity in the women and secondly to modify the risk markers of allergy and obesity ...

Previous studies have shown that consumption of a low calorie cranberry beverage imparts a favorable impact on HDL cholesterol, LDL oxidation, and cell adhesion molecules in men. However, these studies were not well controlled. Thus, it is important to confirm these effects in a blinded, placebo-controlled feeding study. The investigators goal is to verify the cardioprotective effects of cranberries by conducting a dietary intervention trial with healthy ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to determine whether iron-fortified PN is effective in the preventative and treatment of preterm infants. Preterm infants are at risk for anemia especially in preterm infants. Anemia effects growing development, clinical prognosis, cognition, movement, learning ability and behavioral development. As enteral nutrition is not feasible soon after birth in most preterm infants, parenteral iron administration is an efficacious method ... Read More

This is a follow-up cohort study of 6 years old children born preterm in Denmark from 2004-2008, and at four different neonatal units. During hospitalisation they received breast milk with fortification. At time of discharge there were made 3 different nutrition groups; if possible they were randomised into one of two groups: 1. Breastfeeding solely 2. Breastfeeding with fortification If breastfeeding was not possible they were put in group ... Read More

The investigators' general hypothesis is that nutritional factors, including protein/energy malnutrition and/or an impaired response of muscle to nutrition, and inactivity play significant roles in developing sarcopenia, the involuntary loss of muscle mass and function with age. Therefore, age-specific prolonged interventions including nutritional manipulations and/or exercise may help to reduce, stabilize, or even reverse sarcopenia. Read More

The portal hypertension (PHT) is the main complication in patients presenting with cirrhosis. It can be the direct cause of bleeding by rupture of the esophageal or gastric varices and can also contribute to the development of ascites, hepatic encephalopathy and pleuropulmonary complications. In the paediatric population presenting with the PHT, one of every two children develops varices and thus has a significant risk of bleeding. Safe and easy to use, the ... Read More

Aim 1 - The primary aim of our study is to assess whether group counseling is a non-inferior intervention compared to the usual care of individual counseling in the management of childhood obesity. In order to achieve this aim, the investigators will compare the mean change in BMI after 6 months of intervention in the two study arms. Aim 2 - The secondary aim of our study is to determine if the change in BMI is associated with changes in the dietary ... Read More

Obesity is one of the most important determinants of quality of life and function. People with lumbar spinal stenosis may be at increased risk of obesity given walking limitations. Spinal stenosis is a very common degenerative condition in people over 45. People with this condition have pain and numbness in the legs during walking, and therefore avoid physical activity. Lack of physical activity is related to weight gain and increased risk of chronic ... Read More

This project will evaluate the daily intake of whole eggs in the Mediterranean Diet (Med Diet). Cholesterol levels are normally related to cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. Dietary fat and the total diet makeup are well known modifiers of CVD risk. The Med Diet has been shown to decrease blood lipids (fats) and reduce inflammation. Cholesterol intake from eggs may not be as bad as once thought and, in fact, may help to improve the blood lipid (fat) levels. ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to determine if health-related text messages sent from healthcare providers to overweight and obese adolescents enrolled at a pediatric lipid clinic will result in increased adherence to their nutrition and physical activity goals and improve their weight loss. The study will also assess if the volume of texts per week impacts outcomes. This will be a small scale pilot study, with plans for a future larger scale study to assess ... Read More
