2016-10-18 02:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this project is to use white-skinned sweet potato as the main material for weight control for overweight and obesity, the non-communicable diseases (cardiovascular diseases, cancers, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes) are also included. All high quality sweet potato are provided by CAES in Taiwan to produce special nutrient food and health food that to do functional study in Shih Chien University and Taipei Medical University. In this study, the investigators will recruit overweight and obesity subjects that divide into white sweet potato group (experimental group) and no intervention group (control group) by using randomized, parallel and open clinical study in sixty days.

Description

All subjects will be evaluated the body weight and clinical nutrition assessment such as postural measurement, urine test and blood biomarker examination.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A plant species of the genus IPOMOEA, family CONVOLVULACEAE. Some cultivars are sweet and edible whereas bitter varieties are a source of SAPONINS. This sweet potato is sometimes referred to as a yam (DIOSCOREA).

A status with BODY WEIGHT that is above certain standard of acceptable or desirable weight. In the scale of BODY MASS INDEX, overweight is defined as having a BMI of 25.0-29.9 kg/m2. Overweight may or may not be due to increases in body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE), hence overweight does not equal "over fat".

A plant genus in the family CONVOLVULACEAE best known for morning glories (a common name also used with CONVOLVULUS) and sweet potato.

A plant genus best known for edible underground tubers. Yam may also refer to a moist variety of sweet potato, IPOMOEA BATATAS.

Therapeutic replacement or supplementation of defective or missing enzymes to alleviate the effects of the enzyme deficiency (e.g., GLUCOSYLCERAMIDASE replacement for GAUCHER DISEASE).
