The aim of the study was to assess the clinical effect of immunomodulating enteral nutrition in patients undergoing resection for gastrointestinal cancer. 196 subjects were randomly assigned into two study groups: standard and immunostimulating. The study failed to demonstrate any clear advantage of routine postoperative immunonutrition in patients undergoing elective upper gastrointestinal surgery Read More

The aim of the study was to assess the clinical effect of immunostimulatory enteral and parenteral nutrition in patients undergoing resection for gastrointestinal cancer. 205 subjects were randomly assigned into four study groups, standard and immunostimulating, enteral and parenteral. The study was designed to test the hypothesis that immunonutrition and enteral nutrition would reduce the incidence of infectious complications following upper ... Read More

The investigators are seeking to overcome the dual challenges of under-nutrition and diarrhea using an existing safe water supply platform to deliver nutrition information to targeted groups in Western Kenya. Using a randomized evaluation, investigators will determine the impact on nutrition status and practices of delivering nutrition information. The evaluation results will enable Evidence Action to make strategic decisions regarding the potential scale-up ... Read More

In Ethiopia, a child-centered counseling approach is hypothesized to be more effective than the current nutrition and health education when investment on home-based food production is used as a platform for nutrition education. This project is proposed to evaluate the efficacy of a food-based package integrating child-centered nutrition counseling and home-based food production using a between-group comparative intervention study. The intervention comprises ... Read More

Inadequate maternal nutrition is likely to undermine the potential impact of infant and young child feeding (IYCF) improvements made in the Alive & Thrive (A&T) first phase because it is linked to poor fetal growth leading to small-for-gestational age and pre-term newborns. These babies do not respond to growth promoting feeding practices as well as normal newborns do. In Phase 2, Alive & Thrive decided to focus on integrating a package of maternal nutrition ...

Taurolidine alone or in combination with citrate have been proposed for locking the catheter to reduce the number of catheter infections. As there is not enough evidence to give recommendations in this regard, the study tested the hipothesis that taurolidine improves the outcome of long term paretneral nutrition. Read More

The investigators will use a web-based survey to collect data on individual attitudes and self-reported health behaviour changes following genetic testing for personalized nutrition. Participants (n=80) are employees of a large multi-national food company's R&D division located in Australia, Switzerland, USA and the UK. They underwent a genetic test for personalized nutrition in March 2015 that was offered at no cost through the company wellness program. A ... Read More

Hypothesis to be Tested: Since the first description of intravenous alimentation over half a century ago, parenteral nutrition (PN) has become a common nutritional intervention for conditions characterized by inability to tolerate enteral feeds such as Short Bowel Syndrome, Chronic Intestinal Pseudoobstruction, Microvillus Inclusion Disease, Crohn's disease, multi-organ failure and prematurity. Parenteral Nutrition-Associated Liver Disease (PNALD) ... Read More

The aim of our study is to compare the incidence of PNAC in newborns receiving cyclic versus continuous parenteral nutrition (PN) in those newborns who need prolonged PN. The secondary aims are to compare incidence of sepsis and catheter related sepsis, mean length of hospital stay, mortality, nutritional status at two years of chronological age and predisposing factors to the development of parenteral nutrition associated cholestasis (PNAC) between the two ...
