The purpose of this study is to determine whether very low birth weight infants (less than or equal to 1250g or about 2 3/4 pounds) born prematurely fed a diet of only human milk and human milk-derived nutrition have better health outcomes than babies fed at least some formula (made from cow's milk)or formula-derived nutrition.

In critically ill patients, a strategy aimed at an early delivery of full caloric support, with a combination of Enteral Nutrition (EN) and Parenteral Nutrition (PN) (in conditions preventing hyperglycemia and overfeeding), results in shorter ICU and hospital stay and less morbidity as compared to a strategy using only EN.

While fish-oil lipid emulsions have shown a benefit to the treatment of parenteral nutrition (PN)-associated cholestasis, the dose is limited to 1 g/kg/day. Similarly, in early PN-associated cholestasis the dose of soy-based lipid is limited to 1 g/kg/day. Often the calories that are lost from this relative decreased dose of lipids can be provided by adjusting the dextrose content of the PN solution and providing a higher glucose infusion rate. In some ... Read More

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is considered as the hepatic manifestation of the metabolic syndrome. NAFLD is a pathologic condition which involves both hepatic steatosis and non alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), as the result of fat accumulation in the liver (liver fat >5-10% of liver weight), not due to excess alcohol consumption or other causes of steatosis. At present, no medication or surgical procedure has been approved for treating NAFLD ... Read More

The study hypothesizes that one form of food supplement to HIV-infected individuals in Haiti (ready-to-use-supplementary food) will result in improved HIV, nutrition and quality of life outcomes when compared to a second type of food supplement (corn-soy-blend) over the course of 12 months of food supplementation.

In this study, an oral nutrition supplement has been developed that take into consideration: the nutritional requirements, treatment side-effects and taste preferences of head and neck cancer patients; the acceptance of a supplement when experiencing radiation therapy side-effects; and the taste preferences of head and neck cancer patients which may affect the supplement intake. We hope to increase dietary intake during the last 2 weeks of radiation ... Read More

Carbohydrate ingestion, in particular fructose, has been shown in a handful of previous studies to elicit a thermic effect and increase core body temperature after ingestion. Carbohydrate foods and supplements are commonly consumed prior to endurance running competition, including situations where an athlete's ability to dissipate body heat is compromised. Thus, there is some potential for pre-exercise carbohydrate ingestion to have a deleterious effect on ... Read More

The purpose is to investigate the effect of sedentary screen time activities on food intake and subjective appetite in 9- to 14-year old normal weight and overweight/obese girls. The investigators hypothesize that pre-meal exposure to screen time activities for 45 minutes increases subjective appetite and food intake at the next meal. Food intake will be measured immediately following screen-time exposure, and subjective appetite measured throughout the ... Read More

Children who recover from moderate acute malnutrition in Malawi remain at high risk for relapse or death in the year following recovery. This cluster-randomized trial will evaluate a package of affordable, safe, proven interventions specifically targeted to this population of children in an attempt to decrease their risk of relapse or death following recovery from moderate acute malnutrition. These children will be followed for a year following recovery to ... Read More
