Measurable and quantifiable biological parameters (e.g., specific enzyme concentration, specific hormone concentration, specific gene phenotype distribution in a population, presence of biological substances) which serve as indices for health- and physiology-related assessments, such as disease risk, psychiatric disorders, environmental exposure and its effects, disease diagnosis, metabolic processes, substance abuse, pregnancy, cell line development, epidemiologic studies, etc.

Strongyle infections in ponies. II. Reinfection of treated animals. (1/26303)

Five of seven ponies whose strongyle worm burdens had previously been removed or markedly reduced by repeated thiabendazole treatments were reinfected with doses ranging from 100,000 to 500,000 small strongyle infective larvae. Reinfection of ponies resulted in the development of clinical signs characterized by abnormal feces, marked loss of weight and delayed shedding of winter hair coats. An abrupt increase in circulating eosinophils occurred during the first three weeks following reinfection. Patent infections developed in all ponies with worm eggs appearing in the feces from 12 to 15 weeks after receiving infective larvae. Worm egg outputs followed a cyclic pattern with approximately four to five peaks in egg output per year. There was an abrupt drop in the high worm egg counts in two untreated ponies approximately two and a half years after reinfection. No worms were recovered in the feces of these animals when they were subsequently treated, suggesting that a depletion in the number of inhibited larvae present in these ponies might have occurred.  (+info)

Decreased liver and lung drug-metabolizing activity in mice treated with Corynebacterium parvum. (2/26303)

Injections of killed suspensions of Corynebacterium parvum (i.p.) in young male mice were followed by time- and dose-dependent decreases in the drug-metabolizing activity of liver microsomes and lung homogenates. In vitro assays with model substrates [aminopyrine, aniline, p-nitroanisole, and benzo(a)pyrene] were used to quantitate drug-metabolizing activity. It is likely that such decreases in mixed function oxidases activity will act to significantly alter the pharmacokinetics of concurrently or subsequently administered drugs. The results provide a possible mechanism to explain several previously reported immunochemotherapeutic interactions.  (+info)

Pregnancy, body weight and human immunodeficiency virus infection in African women: a prospective cohort study in Kigali (Rwanda), 1992-1994. Pregnancy and HIV Study Group (EGE). (3/26303)

OBJECTIVE: To study the relationship between human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and body weight in African women during and after pregnancy. METHODS: A prospective cohort study was initiated at the Centre Hospitalier de Kigali in July 1992. Every woman seen at the antenatal clinic and with a gestational age of <28 weeks was offered HIV-1 antibody testing. Comparable numbers of HIV-infected (HIV+) and uninfected (HIV-) women were recruited. At inclusion, socio-demographic characteristics and self-reported pre-pregnancy weight were recorded; height and weight were measured. Each woman enrolled had a monthly follow-up until 9 months after delivery, with a clinical examination including weighing. Three anthropometric indices were used to answer the study objectives: weight, body mass index (BMI), and pregnancy balance. RESULTS: As of April 1994, 101 HIV+ and 106 HIV- women were followed until 5 months after delivery. Weight and BMI during pregnancy were lower in HIV+ women than in HIV- women. After delivery, weight and BMI gains were significantly lower in HIV+ women. Until 5 months after delivery, the mean weight variation was -2.2 kg (standard deviation [SD] = 5.9 kg) in HIV+ women and +0.2 kg (SD = 6.6 kg) in HIV- women (P = 0.007) in comparison to pre-pregnancy weight. Comparisons of the slopes of the weight curves did not show statistical differences throughout the pregnancy, but it did during the post-partum period (P = 0.02). CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that HIV infection could impair nutritional status in pregnant women, especially during the post-partum period. Family planning and maternal and child health services including HIV testing and counselling, should consider a nutritional assessment and intervention programme targeted to HIV+ pregnant women.  (+info)

Gender-related differences in myocyte remodeling in progression to heart failure. (4/26303)

Gender-related differences responsible for the better prognosis of females with heart failure have not been clearly established. To address this issue, we investigated potential gender-related differences in myocyte remodeling in spontaneously hypertensive heart failure rats. Echocardiograms and myocyte growth were compared between males and females at compensated (2, 4, and 6 months) and decompensated (18 months in males and 24 months in females) stages of cardiac hypertrophy. Although left ventricular diastolic dimensions did not differ significantly between failing male and female rats, fractional shortening declined significantly only in failing males. Myocyte cross-sectional area did not change after 4 months of age in both genders, which is likely to be responsible for the absence of a change in left ventricular wall thickness during the progression to heart failure. Myocyte volume and cross-sectional area were significantly larger in males than females at 2, 4, and 6 months of age, although there were no significant differences at the failing stage. Reduced adaptive hypertrophic reserve was observed in males, which is likely to contribute to the higher morbidity and mortality of males with chronic heart failure.  (+info)

A sustained rat model for studying the long-lasting catabolic state of sepsis. (5/26303)

Most animal models of sepsis induced high mortality or early recovery and do not mimic the long-lasting catabolic state observed in patients. The purpose of this study is to develop a model of sepsis which reproduces these disorders, especially the long-lasting muscle wasting. This report summarizes our observations in a series of seven experiments using this model with rats to study the route of live Escherichia coli administration, dose of bacteria, reproducibility of the model, bacterial count in tissues, comparison of injection of live or dead bacteria, metabolic perturbations linked to infection, and potential role of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) in muscle wasting. After intravenous infection, animals were anorexic and the catabolic state was long-lasting: body weight loss for 2 to 3 days followed by a chronic wasting state for several days. Liver, spleen, lung protein content, and plasma concentration of alpha2-macroglobulin were increased 2 and 6 days after infection. At 6 days, muscle protein content was substantially (-40%) reduced. The plasma TNF-alpha level measured 1.5 h after infection correlated with body weight loss observed 9 days later. The inhibition of TNF-alpha secretion by administration of pentoxifylline 1 h before infection reduced muscle wasting and activation of proteolysis at day 2 and abolished them at day 6. This septic model mimics in rats the prolonged protein metabolism alterations and muscle atrophy characteristics of infected patients and thus is useful for studying the impact of nutritional support on outcome.  (+info)

Fish oil feeding delays influenza virus clearance and impairs production of interferon-gamma and virus-specific immunoglobulin A in the lungs of mice. (6/26303)

Ingestion of fish oil can suppress the inflammatory response to injury and may impair host resistance to infection. To investigate the effect of a diet containing fish oil on immunity to viral infection, 148 BALB/c mice were fed diets containing 3 g/100 g of sunflower oil with either 17 g/100 g of fish oil or beef tallow for 14 d before intranasal challenge with live influenza virus. At d 1 and d 5 after infection, the mice fed fish oil had higher lung viral load and lower body weight (P < 0.05). In addition to the greater viral load and weight loss at d 5 after infection, the fish oil group consumed less food (P < 0.05) while the beef tallow group was clearing the virus, had regained their preinfection weights and was returning to their preinfection food consumption. The fish oil group had impaired production of lung interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma), serum immunoglobulin (Ig) G and lung IgA-specific antibodies (all P < 0. 05) although lung IFN-alpha/beta and the relative proportions of bronchial lymph node CD4+ and CD8+ T lymphocytes did not differ between groups after infection. The present study demonstrates a delay in virus clearance in mice fed fish oil associated with reduced IFN-gamma and antibody production and a greater weight loss and suppression of appetite following influenza virus infection. However, differences observed during the course of infection did not affect the ultimate outcome as both groups cleared the virus and returned to preinfection food consumption and body weight by d 7.  (+info)

Sodium requirement of adult cats for maintenance based on plasma aldosterone concentration. (7/26303)

The sodium requirement of adult cats for maintenance was determined using a randomized block design of eight dietary sodium treatments (0.1, 0.4, 0.5, 0.66, 0.8, 1.2, 1.6 or 2.0 g Na/kg in a casein-lactalbumin-based purified diet) administered for periods of 4 wk. A total of 35 adult specific-pathogen-free domestic shorthaired cats (26 males and 9 females, 1.5-3 y of age) was given an equilibration diet (2 g Na/kg) for 14 d before assignment (or reassignment) to the treatments. A total of 12 cats (8 males, 4 females) was randomly assigned to the lowest six levels of sodium, and four cats to the highest two sodium levels. Cats consuming the diet containing 0.1 g Na/kg had significantly elevated aldosterone concentration in plasma, and packed cell volume. In addition, these cats exhibited anorexia, body weight loss, reduced urinary specific gravity and sodium excretion, and had a negative sodium balance. However, adult cats did not develop polydypsia and polyuria reported in sodium-deficient kittens. Cats given the diet containing 0.66 g Na/kg did not have an increased packed cell volume, but aldosterone concentration in the plasma was significantly elevated. However, cats given diets containing >/=0.8 g Na/kg had plasma aldosterone concentrations +info)

Natural sporting ability and predisposition to cardiovascular disorders. (8/26303)

We tested the hypothesis that people with a natural ability in 'power sports' (a presumed marker for predominance of type 2, glycolytic muscle fibres) might have increased risks of coronary heart disease (CHD) compared to those with a natural ability in 'endurance sports' (as a marker for predominance of type 1, oxidative muscle fibres). We examined subsequent cardiovascular disorders retrospectively in 231 male former soldiers, aged 34-87 years, who had undergone a course in physical training in the Army School of Physical Training, Aldershot, UK, who assessed themselves as having natural ability in either power (n = 107) or endurance (n = 124) sports. The proportion with CHD, defined as angina and/or coronary angioplasty and/or coronary artery bypass graft and/or heart attack was 18.7% in the 'power group' vs. 9.7% in the 'endurance group' (difference: chi 2 = 3.9, p = 0.05). The proportions with CHD and/or risk factors rose to 39.3% in the 'power group' vs. 25.8% in the 'endurance group' (difference: chi 2 = 4.8, p = 0.03). Under logistic regression analysis, compared to the 'endurance group', the 'power group' had 2.2 (95% CI: 1.00-4.63) the risk of developing CHD, and 1.86 (95% confidence interval: 1.06 to 3.25) the risk of developing CHD and/or risk factors. Men with a natural ability in 'power sports' are at increased risk of developing cardiovascular disorders, compared to men with a natural ability in 'endurance sports'. A predominance of type 2, glycolytic muscle fibres, presumably of genetic origin, may predispose to cardiovascular disorders.  (+info)

Effects of Daidzein on Body Weight Gain, Serum IGF-I Level and Cellular Immune Function in Intact Male Piglets Daidzein;IGF-I;T-Lymphocytes;Male Piglets; 10 male piglets at 5-6 weeks old with similar body weight (BW) were randomly assigned into the experimental (EXP) and control (CON) groups. The animals in EXP received intro-muscular injection with daidzein (DA) at the dose of 0.5 mg DA per kg start BW on day 1. The same procedures were repeated once every 3 days for eight times. The animals in CON received the injection only with same volume of control peanut oil. The animals were weighted on day 14 and 28 and the blood samples were obtained at different stages of the treatment for determining IGF-I levels and blood parameters. At the end of the experiment, the thymus and spleen from all the animals were surgically taken out and weighted. The results showed that BW and average daily gain (ADG) were not significantly different between the groups in term of the whole period, but ADG between days 14-28
More than half of all Canadians have excess weight, putting them at increased risk for several types of cancer.. Excess weight is a result of consuming too many calories and burning too few calories. If we reduce the calories we eat and drink and use up more calories by being active and sitting less, we can make a start to having a healthy body weight.. But its more than how much we eat and drink and exercise. The genes were born with influence our body weight. Where we live and go to work or school can have an impact. And some healthy choices may be hard to find or cost a lot.. For many of us, achieving and maintaining a healthy body weight isnt easy, but its too important not to try. Check with your doctor about what a healthy body weight is for you and take steps to work toward that weight. Its worth it!.

The present study aimed to investigate the effects of maternal factors on body weight at hatching (day-old) and at six weeks of age in a commercial broiler line. A total of 6,765 records on body weight at day-old (BWTDO) and 115,421 records on body weight at six weeks of age (BWT6W), originated from a commercial broiler line during 14 generations, were used to estimate genetic parameters related to the effects of maternal traits on body weight of chicks immediately after hatch or six weeks thereafter. The data were analyzed using restricted maximum likelihood procedure (REML) and an animal model with DFREML software. Direct heritability (|TEX|$h^{2}{_a}$|/TEX|), maternal heritability (|TEX|$h^{2}{_m}$|/TEX|), and maternal environmental variance as the proportions of phenotypic variance (|TEX|$c^{2}$|/TEX|) for body weight at day-old were estimated to be 0.050, 0.351, and 0.173, respectively. The respective estimated values for body weight at six weeks of age were 0.340, 0.022, and 0.030. The
Ideal weight is how much your body needs to weigh for optimal function. Sometimes, theres a big gap between desired and ideal weight, since desired weight can often be unhealthy weight. Scroll down and you can check your body mass index below.. Excessive weight loss is not always the best option for a healthy body. While on one side obesity brings higher risk of hypertension, diabetes, heart problems etc., on the other hand excessive weight loss is no less dangerous. The golden middle rule is always the best option.. This chart has been specially designed by doctors and specialists. Plus, its really thorough as it includes several parameters, such as your body shape, age and height, to give you the ideal body weight. The best thing about this chart is that it does not promote unhealthy body proportions, but tells you how much you should weigh according to your specific proportions and age. ...
As body weights and body mass indices have increased over time, we questioned the validity of correlating heart weight with body weight and whether tables from previous decades remain relevant. We investigated this by collecting details of heart weight, body weight, height, gender and age from 384 autopsy cases with no obvious heart or lung disease. Heart weights, body weights and heights showed a normal distribution for both genders. Heart weight correlated slightly better with body surface area than body weight and we present new reference charts derived from these data. The correlation between heart weight and body weight has changed little, despite increases in body weight and body mass index. As life expectancy is increasing, we investigated the effect of age on heart weight and demonstrated a small increase in heart weight relative to body surface area for both genders, in contrast to a previous study.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of reduced body weight on muscle aerobic capacity in patients with COPD. AU - Palange, Paolo. AU - Forte, Silvia. AU - Onorati, Paolo. AU - Paravati, Vincenzo. AU - Manfredi, Felice. AU - Serra, Pietro. AU - Carlone, Stefano. PY - 1998. Y1 - 1998. N2 - Background: Reduced muscle aerobic capacity in COPD patients has been demonstrated in several laboratories by phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopy and by analysis of oxygen uptake (V̇O2) kinetics. COPD patients are usually elderly, hypoxemic, poorly active with muscle atrophy, and often malnourished. Under these conditions there is usually reduction of O2 delivery to the tissues (bulk O2 flow), redistribution of fiber type within the muscle, capillary rarefaction, and decreased mitochondrial function, alterations all capable of reducing muscle aerobic capacity. In COPD, the effect of reduced body mass on muscle aerobic capacity has not been investigated (to our knowledge). Methods: We studied 24 patients with stable ...

Although the terms overweight and obese are often used interchangeably and considered as gradations of the same thing, they denote different things. The major physical factors contributing to body weight are water weight, muscle tissue mass, bone tissue mass, and fat tissue mass. Overweight refers to having more weight than normal for a particular height and may be the result of water weight, muscle weight, or fat mass. Obese refers specifically to having excess body fat. In most cases people who are overweight also have excessive body fat and therefore body weight is an indicator of obesity in much of the population.. The ideal healthy body weight for a particular person is dependent on many things, such as frame size, sex, muscle mass, bone density, age, and height. The perception of the ideal body weight is additionally dependent on cultural factors and the mainstream societal advertisement of beauty.. To standardize the ideal body weight and relate it to health, scientists have devised ...
Stroke and bleeding outcomes with apixaban versus warfarin in patients with high creatinine, low body weight or high age receiving standard dose apixaban for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation
ABSTRACT. Various studies suggest a strong association between nutrition and clinical outcome in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Several morbidity factors that per se increase the risk of a poor outcome, such as cardiovascular disease (CVD) and inflammation, may also cause malnutrition. Among laboratory parameters used to assess nutritional status, serum albumin appears to be a particularly strong predictor of morbidity and mortality. This study assessed the importance of nutritional status and inflammation and other comorbidity factors as predictors of mortality in HD patients. Nutritional status was evaluated in 128 HD patients by subjective global nutritional assessment (SGNA) and by measuring several anthropometric markers (actual body weight, percentage of actual body weight to desirable body weight, midarm muscle circumferences, triceps skinfold thickness), and serum albumin, plasma insulin such as insulin growth factor-1 and as a marker of inflammation, serum C-reactive protein (s-CRP) ...

Background: Investigating the validity of the self-reported values of weight allows for the proper assessment of studies using questionnaire-derived data. The study examined the accuracy of gender-specific self-reported weight in a sample of adults. The effects of age, education, race and ethnicity, income, general health and medical status on the degree of discrepancy (the difference between self-reported weight and measured weight) are similarly considered. Methods: The analysis used data from the US Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Self-reported and measured weights were abstracted and analyzed according to sex, age, measured weight, self-reported weight, and body mass index (BMI). A proportional odds model was applied. Results: The weight discrepancy was positively associated with age, and negatively associated with measured weight and BMI. Ordered logistic regression modeling showed age, race-ethnicity, education, and BMI to be associated with the degree of ...

TBW constitutes approximately 50% of lean body weight in healthy females and 60% of lean body weight in males. For clinical purposes, most clinicians generalize that TBW accounts for 60% of lean body weight in adults, regardless of gender. The percentage of TBW decreases as body fat increases and/or with age (75%-85% of body weight is water for newborns). Unless the patient is obese (body weight > 120% of ideal body weight [IBW]), clinicians typically use a patients actual body weight when calculating TBW.2 In obese patients, it is customary to estimate TBW using lean body weight or IBW as calculated by the Devine-Devine method: males lean body weight = 50 kg + (2.3 kg/in ...

Most people are confused about the best way to calculate their current weight and just step on a scale to see how much they weigh. However, there are multiple factors that contribute to a persons weight gain and loss.. Everyones body is different as is every individuals ideal weight. Factors such as environment, genetics, habits, gender, age metabolism, and several other dynamics influence a persons weight. Just as importantly, one must consider ones body type, height, bone density, and fat to muscle ratio. Knowing this information is vital to help implement the right diet and exercise routine.. Following a general work-out and diet plan to become as ripped as a professional athlete or as curvaceous as a fashion model is not the best method to become fit, nor is using body mass index (BMI) or waist-hip ratio (WHR) alone the best means for calculating ones weight.. While BMI alone is no longer the best way to measure a persons body-fat ratio, combined with the WHR method one just might ...
OK, so you have been gaining a little weight over the past few years. Last checkup, you were significantly farther north of your ideal weight than you thought. You are now significantly beyond that healthy BMI you keep hearing about and it just seems like too much work to try to get it off. A few pounds would have been easy enough to lose, but a few pounds arent going to help you now-or is it?. When we think about weight loss, we often use our ideal body weight as a standard for where our weight needs to be. Being overweight is often accompanied by high blood pressure, elevations in blood fats like triglycerides and cholesterol, high blood glucose, and even sleep apnea problems. In my line of work I often hear, But 30-50 lbs is just too much to lose right now. And if I dont lose that much it wont do me any good, will it?. That mentality of thinking is incorrect. Losing 5-10% of your current weight can do amazing things and if you keep that weight off, the positive effects remain in place. ...

The effects on the body composition of Corriedale wethers of weight loss, compensatory gain and constant body weight are described. Three groups of sheep were grown from 35-63 kg by different paths. The first grew continuously (fed ad libitum). The second and third groups lost 20% and 28% of body weight (restricted intake), respectively, from 48 kg and were then fed ad libitum until they reached 63 kg. Pairs of animals were slaughtered at intervals in each group. A fourth group of sheep was maintained at 48 kg. Analyses of covariance comparing regression equations were used to determine differences in body composition between the first three groups.. The compensatory growth rates of both groups which had lost weight were 1·5-2 times those during continuous growth. These increases were associated with an increased gut content of these animals and a concomitant reduction in the proportion of empty body weight (EBW) and carcass weight (CW) in t he full body weight (FBW). Thus, the apparent ...
Authors: James, W.P.T. , Ralph, Ann Article Type: Research Article Abstract: Obesity is an escalating problem in many countries. There is a need to reduce the average body weight of a population, not simply treat the extremes. This requires consideration of societal factors which affect body weight. Weight increases with age, the increase leading to a higher proportion of body fat to lean tissue. Causes include progressive inactivity and dietary fat which often accompany increasing affluence. A body mass index (BMI) of 20-25 is generally advised, but some suggest a BMI of 20-22 for lowest risk of disease. The risk of smoking when thin exceeds the risk of being overweight, so …dietary advice is important on cessation of smoking. Genetic susceptibility to weight gain is strongly influenced by nutrient interactions at all stages of life. Foetal and neonatal nutrition may modify body weight in later life. Familial trends of reduced activity and low metabolic rate need to be addressed, as does the ...

The Obalon balloon consists of 3 lightweight balloons that are placed in the stomach over a 12-week treatment period. Rather than introducing one large balloon, the Obalon balloon is designed to minimize discomfort by introducing up to 3 small balloons over time. The Obalon balloon is designed to assist weight loss by partially filling the stomach and helping to induce a feeling of fullness. The placement of one or more balloons in the stomach helps you consume less food at each sitting. Data from European and Mexican clinical studies of the Obalon balloon demonstrated that participants lost on average 8.2% of their Total Body Weight and 48.9% of Excess Body Weight over a 12-week treatment period. Some participants lost less weight than the average and other participants lost more than the average.* The Obalon balloon is designed to help you feel fuller longer with smaller meals so that you can work on eating healthier. Weight loss will depend on how you modify your eating behaviors, as directed ...

Interpretive Summary: Technical Abstract: This study was designed to determine the effect of supplementing feedlot steers with Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-1079 (SC) on the acute phase response to a lipopolysaccharide (LPS) challenge. Steers (n = 18; 266 ± 4 kilograms body weight) were separated into three treatment groups (n = 6/treatment): one group was fed a standard receiving diet (Control, Cont); one group was fed the standard receiving diet supplemented with SC (Lallemand, Inc.) at 0.5 grams/head/day (SC-0.5), and the final group was fed the standard receiving diet supplemented with SC at 5.0 grams/head/day (SC-5.0) for 29 days. On day 27 steers were fitted with indwelling jugular cannulas and rectal temperature (RT) probes that measured RT continuously at 5-minute intervals and were placed in individual stalls. On day 28, steers were challenged intravenously with LPS (0.5 micrograms/kilogram body weight at 0 hour) and blood samples were collected at 30-minute intervals from -2 to 8 ...
It depends on what you ate before going on a diet. If you were eating 1800 calories a day, then you`ll be eating 500 calories less each day than normal. For a week, that equates to 3500 calories in one week. That means you would lose one pound each week. Then, you`d lose some weight, and the amount of calories required to maintain your new weight will decrease. So, instead of it being 1800 minus 1200, it would be, say, 1500 minuse 1200. 3500 calories lost is the equivalent of one pound lost. So, you should track what you`d eat naturally, then start the diet to figure out how much weight you want to lose. Adding exercise always helps with calorie deficits. If you walk at a good pace for about an hour, you might burn anywhere from 200 to upwards of 500 calories. All of that depends on your weight, though, because calories are energy. If you have them, you need to use them. The more you weigh, the more you need to stay that weight ...

The researchers said that during the starter period, feeding chickens with any of the tested additives diminished their body weight (BW), average daily gain (ADG) and feed intake (FI) as compared to control diet. This was also observed during the entire feeding period, except for INU supplementation, that showed similar values to control birds.. The authors noted that none of the treatments affected duodenal histomorphometry.. Our results also revealed that, as expected, the caeca microbiota composition was influenced by diet at every stage of the productive period, although an association between microbiota and performance was not clear.. At day 21, they said they did not observe any differences in microbiota composition of the control, 60-DWP, 5-CHIT and 20-INU birds although they noted that only the control diet promoted greater body weight (BW), average daily gain (ADG), and feed intake (FI).. The control and 60-DWP diets did not differ in their caeca communities at day 42, although only ...
Author Summary Body weight and energy balance are under very complex neural, endocrine, and metabolic control. Correspondingly, recent research suggests that hundreds of genes contribute to human obesity and that only a small proportion of them have as yet been identified. Neurobeachin (Nbea) is a protein specifically expressed in nerve and endocrine cells and is important for neurotransmission, apparently by influencing the synaptic targeting of membrane proteins. Here, we show that heterozygous knockout mice, expressing Nbea at 50% of normal levels, display increased adipose tissue mass, abnormal feeding behavior, and modified expression of specific genes in the brainstem and hypothalamus known to be important for body weight control. Moreover, we find that NBEA gene polymorphisms are associated with body-mass index in adult and juvenile human cohorts. Our results demonstrate that variation of Nbea activity critically affects body weight, presumably by influencing the activity of feeding-related

Cariprazine (Car) is a recently approved second generation antipsychotic (SGA) with unique pharmacodynamic profile, being a partial agonist at both dopamine D2/3 receptor subtypes, with almost 10 times greater affinity towards D3. SGAs are known to increase body weight, alter serum lipids, and stimulate adipogenesis but so far, limited information about the adverse effects is available with this drug. In order to study this new SGA with such a unique mechanism of action, we compared Car to substances that are considered references and are well characterized: olanzapine (Ola) and aripiprazole (Ari). We studied the effects on body weight and also assessed the adipogenesis in rats. The drugs were self-administered in two different doses to female, adult, Wistar rats for six weeks. Weekly body weight change, vacuole size of adipocytes, Sterol Regulatory Element Binding Protein-1 (SREBP-1) and Uncoupling Protein-1 (UCP-1) expression were measured from the visceral adipose tissue (AT). The adipocyte’s

The knockout approach is so useful that the inventors of the technology were awarded the 2007 Nobel Prize in Medicine. Knockout mice are now standard tools in all mouse models of behavior and disease. In 60% of strains, knocking out a gene produces mice that are nonviable; that is, the mouse cannot survive without the knocked out gene. The Monell survey revealed that body weight was altered in over a third of the viable knockout stains; 31 percent weighed less than controls (indicating that the missing genes contribute to heavier body weight), while another 3 percent weighed more (contributing to lighter weight). Extrapolating from the total number of genes in the mouse genome, this implies that over 6,000 genes could potentially contribute to the body weight of a mouse. Tordoff comments, It is interesting that there are 10 times more genes that increase body weight than decrease it, which might help explain why it is easier to gain weight than lose it.. Because body weight plays a role in ...

Objectives: To assess the validity of self-reported weight and Body Mass Index (BMI) in the participants of a multi-purpose prospective cohort. Methods The SUN Study is a cohort of university graduates, recruited and followed-up using mailed questionnaires. We compared the self-reported weight and height in the baseline questionnaire with the objectively measured weight and height in a medical visit after the participants filled the questionnaire. Participants did not know that the self-reported weight and height would be compared with the measured weight and height. Results: The average relative error was -1.45% (95% CI:-2.03% to -0.86%) for the weight and -2.64% (95% CI: -3.70% to -1.60%) for the BMI. Self-reported BMI showed values for sensitivity of 90%, for specificity of 100%, for positive and negative predictive values of 100% and 93% respectively, to detect overweight/obesity (BMIε 25 kg/m 2). The kappa index was 0.91 (95% CI: 0.81 to 0.99). The correlation coefficient between ...

The goals of therapy for people with diabetes and overweight or obesity are to achieve optimal glycemic and metabolic control and, ultimately, improve quality of life, morbidity and mortality. Attaining and maintaining a healthy body weight, and preventing weight regain, are key components of optimizing glycemic control in people with diabetes. Often people with obesity and diabetes have greater difficulty with achieving weight loss compared to people with obesity but without diabetes (19). Health-care providers should attempt to minimize use of weight-inducing agents without compromising glycemic control, or switch the person with diabetes to agents not associated with weight gain (15).. For many people with diabetes, prevention of further weight gain is a realistic and sustainable target. A modest weight loss of 5% to 10% of initial body weight can improve insulin sensitivity, glycemic control and blood pressure. Greater amounts of weight loss may be needed to improve OSA and dyslipidemia ...

Reported statistics and error estimates (Contd) Where applicable, all two-way interactions between treatment, sex, and days were modeled. Body weights were analyzed separately over two time periods due to changes in reproductive status over these periods. Body weight differences from day 0 to day 60 were analyzed with mean weight differences compared among the three treatment groups. Next, body weight differences were analyzed over the time period that ducks were reproductively active (day 90 through day 150). Organ weights and percent shot erosion were also analyzed using an ANOVA involving the factors treatment and sex. Percent shot erosion and adult relative organ weights were percentage (p) data subjected to arcsine, square root transformation prior to statistical analysis.

Alternate-day fasting (ADF) is a novel diet therapy that may achieve reduction in body weight and improvement of dyslipidaemia, but the impact of this diet on patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) remains unknown. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of ADF on the body weight and lipid profile of individuals with NAFLD. NAFLD patients (n = 271) were randomised to the ADF group, time-restricted feeding (TRF) group, or the control group and subjected to the respective diet for 12 weeks. Anthropometric measurements (body weight, fat mass/fat-free mass) were performed, and plasma lipids were analysed enzymatically. Within 4 weeks, the body weight decreased significantly (P | 0.001) in the ADF group by 4.56 ± 0.41 kg (6.1 ± 0.5%) and the TRF group by 3.62 ± 0.65 kg (4.83 ± 0.9%) compared to the control group, and it decreased even more after 12 weeks in both groups (ADF: − 4.04 ± 0.54 kg, 5.4 ± 0.7%; TRF: − 3.25 ± 0.67 kg, 4.3 ± 0.9%).

When you embark on a weight loss diet something strange happens. Your body is not entirely happy to shed its fat. Instead you start to lose lean tissue such as muscle and bone density.. A research study carried out in Denmark, and reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in May 2002 found that when men dieted less than 60% of the weight lost was fat. The rest was lean tissues. When men regained weight only 24% of the weight they put back on was lean tissue - over 75% of the weight regained after weight loss was more fat.

Data on body weight and weight change collected from nationally representative samples of U.S. adults are reviewed. The body mass index (weight [kg]/height [m2]) has a low correlation with height and is used to compare body weights between persons of differing heights. The BMI varies to a greater degree in women than in men. Below the 75th percentile of the BMI distribution, women have lower BMIs than men, whereas at the 75th percentile and above, women have higher BMIs than men. Overweight is defined as a BMI of 27.8 or more in men and of 27.3 or more in women, corresponding to approximately 20% or more above desirable weight in the 1983 Metropolitan Life Insurance Company tables. For persons of average height (men, 59; women, 54) this definition is equivalent to a body weight above 85 kg (187 pounds) in men and above 72 kg (158 pounds) in women. Among adults 20 to 74 years of age, 24% of men and 27% of women are overweight, yielding an estimated total of 34 million persons in the United ...

Patient weight is an essential parameter for medication safety and infection management. Drugs where body weight is important in the dose assessment are often prescribed without a recorded weight. Our study showed that large numbers of patients are not weighed on admission. The reasons for this omission are complex and may result in inaccurate dosing of certain narrow therapeutic index drugs, which could have serious consequences. From a medication safety perspective recording of patient weight is an essential step for the safe administration of many medicines with a narrow therapeutic index. In the case of antibiotics the need to keep drugs within the narrow therapeutic index during therapy, in addition to ensure efficacy and reduce toxicity is of significant importance for mitigating the emergence of resistance. If the antibiotic concentrations fall short of the minimum inhibitory concentrations there is a risk of resistance being developed to the antibiotic being used.6 ,7 Using the correct ...

  • Excess body weight is considered by most experts to be an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease, although obesity also indirectly increases the risk via deleterious impact on blood pressure and the lipoprotein profile. (
  • Moreover, epidemiologic studies have reported that consuming most daily calories in the evening is associated with higher body mass index (BMI) and an increased risk of obesity and metabolic syndrome. (
  • A popular policy option for addressing the growth in weight has has been the imposition of a "fat tax" on selected foods that are deemed to promote obesity. (
  • The NIDDKD also define being overweight as having a body mass index ( BMI ) of 25-29.9 and having obesity as having a BMI of at least 30. (
  • The immune system is more easily manipulated than the nervous system so it could be a promising path in the pharmacological quest to treat obesity and melt away excess weight, he adds. (
  • As sales of weight-loss books have climbed recently-from 3.6 million copies in 2005 to 4.8 million in 2007-so has obesity. (
  • Obesity was viewed, therefore, as a disorder arising from impaired body weight regulation, rather than a lack of dietary restraint. (
  • Physiological regulation of body weight and the issue of obesity. (
  • The goal of this regulation of body weight continuing education program is to provide dietitians, health educators, physical therapists, and other healthcare professionals with information on the role of energy balance in obesity. (
  • This recommendation can be applied to healthy people to prevent metabolic diseases [such as diabetes], as well as to patients with overweight and obesity to reduce body weight," she added. (
  • Here we review the role of leptin in the control of body weight and its relevance to the pathogenesis of obesity. (
  • The results from our study demonstrate that even a moderate 5 percent weight loss in people with obesity has considerable health benefits by simultaneously improving metabolic function in multiple organ systems and decreasing other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, including plasma triglyceride concentration," Dr. Klein says.

  • In contrast to the recent evidence relating to mortality, which concluded that only more obese people were at a higher risk of death, the current findings suggest that the occurrence of obesity-related illnesses and related costs begin increasing at a healthy weight. (
  • Obesity is a global epidemic with majority of the world's population in developed countries being over weight or obese! (
  • Reporting in the online journal BMC Genetics, researchers from the Monell Center have for the first time attempted to count the number of genes that contribute to obesity and body weight. (
  • Our results suggest that each newly discovered gene is just one of the many thousands that influence body weight, so a quick fix to the obesity problem is unlikely. (
  • Because body weight plays a role in many diseases, including hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease, the implications of the findings extend beyond studies of obesity and body weight. (
  • Set point theory does not on its own explain why body mass index for humans, measured as a proxy for fat, tends to change with increasing age or why obesity levels in a population vary depending on socioeconomic or environmental factors (or why weight tends to change for an individual when socioeconomic status and environment change).

  • Then divide the weight in pounds by the squared height from above (115/3844 = 0.0299). (
