Second generation antipsychotics, like olanzapine (OLZ), have become the first line drug treatment for patients with schizophrenia. However, OLZ treatment is often associated with body weight (BW) gai...
Meta-analytical data show lithium augmentation (LA) as an effective treatment strategy in major depression. Weight-gain is a common side effect of LA. The proteohormone leptin is discussed to be invol...
Obesity is reaching epidemic proportions in both developed and developing countries. Even modest weight gain increases the risk for chronic illness, yet evidence-based interventions to prevent weight ...
Parents of children who are overweight often fail to accurately identify their child's weight status. Although these misperceptions are presumed to be a major public health concern, little research ha...
Weight gain occurs commonly in young adults and has adverse effects on health.
Excessive weight gain during pregnancy is associated with complications during delivery primarily due to macrosomia (large babies) but also with high levels of weight retention post pregna...
The specific aim of the proposed project is to test two separate self-regulation interventions to prevent weight gain in young adults, one based on making sustained small changes in behavi...
Study goal is to determine whether behavioral lifestyle intervention during pregnancy can reduce the number of women who exceed the Institute of Medicine recommendations for weight gain du...
To evaluate the effectiveness of lifestyle modification following a smoking cessation program in preventing weight gain among hypertensive smokers placed at medical risk by the post-cessat...
This study assess whether a small-group seminar intervention to prevent weight gain is effective in a general university student population, and to address the relative role of biological ...
Increase in BODY WEIGHT over existing weight.
A condition in which an infant or child's weight gain and growth are far below usual levels for age.
A group of malignant lymphomas thought to derive from peripheral T-lymphocytes in lymph nodes and other nonlymphoid sites. They include a broad spectrum of lymphocyte morphology, but in all instances express T-cell markers admixed with epithelioid histiocytes, plasma cells, and eosinophils. Although markedly similar to large-cell immunoblastic lymphoma (LYMPHOMA, LARGE-CELL, IMMUNOBLASTIC), this group's unique features warrant separate treatment.
A condition that is caused by HYPERPLASIA of LYMPHOCYTES in the small intestine (INTESTINE, SMALL) and the mesenteric LYMPH NODES. These lymphocytes produce an anomalous alpha heavy chain protein. Generally, these IPSID patients have either concurrent LYMPHOMA or develop lymphoma within a few years. The disease was first described in the Mediterranean region and is characterized by malabsorption; WEIGHT LOSS; DIARRHEA; and STEATORRHEA.
B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.
