The proportion of the elderly population has increased rapidly worldwide. Frailty is a common geriatric syndrome. Comprehensive dietary management strategy may have beneficial effects on frailty prevention and reversal. We compared the effects between micronutrients and/or protein supplement, and balanced diet on frailty status in elderly individuals who were at either pre-frail or frail stage. A total of 37 subjects completed a 3-month paralleled, ... Read More

The present study aims to develop a technique based on a single dose of a calcium isotope, which enables to determine the effect of a nutritional intervention on bone calcium metabolism. For this purpose nutritional interventions with calcium, vitamin D and vitamin K will be applied in postmenopausal women. Treatment effects will be determined by the urinary excretion of the calcium isotope and related to classical bone markers. Read More

A natural form of vitamin E called tocotrienol (TCT) has blood thinning and cholesterol lowering properties, both of which may benefit stroke survivors. This study is being conducted to determine the blood thinning and cholesterol lowering properties of TCT in stroke or TIA (transient ischemic attack, which is also referred to as a "mini-stroke") survivors that are receiving the standard treatment for prevention of recurrent stroke. Study Hypothesis: Oral ... Read More

The epidermal barrier efficacy is determined by the physicochemical properties of the epidermal lipid matrix, among which ω-6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) play a key role. Inversely, the ω-3 EFAs are not found in the epidermis. For patients receiving lipid-containing parenteral nutrition (LCPN), the improvement of the epidermal barrier through the infusion of most appropriate intravenous fat emulsions (IVFE) could have many applications in clinical ...

Many patients in the hospital who are malnourished or not eating received intravenous feeding or total parenteral nutrition (TPN). Despite improving nutrition, TPN may increase the risk of infections and hospital complications. We do not know why TPN increases hospital complications, but it may be caused by the high sugar or fat content in TPN solutions. The investigators believe that the high sugar and high fat content can limit the ability to fight ... Read More

NSAIDS are associated with adverse GI effects and COX-2 inhibitors have cardiovascular risk. Long-term oral supplementation with fish oil reduce e.g. joint pain in rheumatoid arthritis (R.A) patients, with reduced need for NSAIDS, in addition to being cardioprotective. The aim is to investigate if 4 month supplementation of 15 ml/day of whale blubber oil compared with cod liver oil reduce the intensity of joint pain in patients with R.A (primary outcome). ...
