Examining the Effects of Juice Fasting

This study tests the effectiveness of dietary interventions that have the possibility to improve markers of gut health and improve general well-being. This study will allow healthcare professionals to learn how dietary interventions involving fasting can affect health. Food is increasingly recognized as a core component of preventive and ameliorative health care. Juice fast...

Plant Sterols and Plant Stanols and Liver Inflammation

As the prevalence of obesity is reaching epidemic proportions, the prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), including non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), increases concomitantly and becomes a major global health hazard. Successful pharmacological interventions to treat or prevent NASH are not available and so far only weight loss has clear benefits, but su...

Modification of Diet in Renal Transplantation (MDRT)

Abnormalities in lipid metabolism are present in 50-80% of patients with a kidney transplant and together with concurrent comorbidities and other associated cardiovascular risk factors put kidney transplant recipients at a high-risk for cardiovascular disease.

The Plant-Based and Soul-Full Study (PASS)

The goal of this study is to examine if exposure to vegan soul food restaurants can increase African American adults' perceived benefits of consuming plant-based foods more so than standard guidelines. Although the health benefits of vegan diets are well documented, many people are reluctant to commit to a vegan diet long term. Various issues like food preparation, a lack o...

Supplementation of Critical Nutrients in a Plant-based Diet a Plant-based Diet as Assessed by Experts in Nutrition

500 participants of the vegan/vegetarian congress VegMed are to be included, which should answer once (cross-sectional study) a medicine socio-behaviorist questionnaire on the topic "supplementation of critical nutrients in a plant-based diet" at the VegMed congress on 21/04/2018. The aim of the study is to understand how experts in this field behave and whether actions tak...

Meta-analysis of the Portfolio Dietary Pattern and Cardiometabolic Risk

The European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) guidelines have not made any specific recommendations regarding the Portfolio diet, a dietary pattern that includes nuts, viscous fibre, plant protein, and plant sterols. To update the recommendations, the Diabetes and Nutrition Study Group (DNSG) of the EASD commissioned a systematic review and meta-analysis using t...

A Whole Food Plant Diet and Its Lipidemic Effects on Primary Prevention in a Free-range Population

This study seeks to determine the effects of a whole-food, plant-based diet on lipid, metabolic, and inflammatory biomarkers. Eligible participants will have had either an LDL-C > 200 mg/dL or non-HDL-C > 130 mg/dL without a current diagnosis of coronary heart disease and are willing to adhere to a whole food plant based diet for at least 8 weeks. Participants enrolled in t...

Effects of Phytonutrients on Vascular Health and Skin in Obese Males

This study will determine the effects of beneficial compounds of plant foods, such as pomegranate on cardiovascular health, skin inflammation and aging. This will be tested by asking healthy males to eat a high fat ground beef patty with 8oz. pomegranate juice or 8oz placebo (a study product that looks like pomegranate juice, but contains no active ingredients) and then mea...

The Effect of n-3 PUFA-riched Plant Oil Intake on Human Metabolism

The findings of previous experiments suggested that polyunsaturated fatty acids(PUFAs) has been linked to anti-hyperlipidemia, and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.This is a randomized double-blind trial, aims to study the effect of PUFAs on blood lipids and human metabolism. Firstly, the investigators will investigate the efficacy of mixed plant oil(echium oil, ...

Does Consuming Modified Plant Seed Oil Containing Fish Oil Fatty Acids Act in the Same Way as Consuming Fish Oil?

Fish oil and oily fish contain omega 3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids known to be beneficial to health. Many people consume little, despite UK government recommendations to eat at least one portion of oily fish per week. Furthermore, despite modest consumption, fish stocks are declining due to over fishing. Therefore, there is a need for an alternative, sustainable ...

Treatment of Plantar Keratosis With Medicinal Plant in Diabetic Patients

This study evaluates the addition of medicinal plant in the treatment of diabetic foot keratosis. Half of participants will receive medicinal plant and other half will receive a placebo.

A Nutrition Intervention for Arthritis -3 (WCCR-ARTH3)

The purpose of the study is to assess whether, in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis, a low-fat, vegan diet improves pain and other subjective symptoms more effectively than a control supplement or a placebo. The principal measure is pain as measured by Visual Analog Scale (VAS) and disease activity as measured by number of painful swollen and tender joints, respectively...

Evaluation of Plant-based Nutritional Products on Stem Cells

The purpose of this clinical study is to evaluate acute effects of plant-based nutritional extracts on adult stem cells, using a randomized double-blinded placebo-controlled cross-over study design.

The Effect of Milk Protein vs Blends of Milk and Plant Protein on Growth Markers in 7-8 Year Old Healthy Danish Children

The purpose of PROGRO is to determine which combinations of milk and plant proteins are optimal to promote growth factors in children

PD1-PIK Cell Therapy for Patients With Glioblastoma Multiforme

At present, the investigators constructed a transgenic modified T cells,namely pluripotent immune killer (PIK) cells, the cells can stablely express a high-level full-length PD1 antibody , transduce signals to activate T cells, which results in tumor killing. This pilot study is to determine the safety and efficacy of autologous T cells in patients with glioblastoma.

Pilot Study on the Effects of a Plant-Strong Diet on Cardiovascular Risk Factors

The purpose of this study is to conduct a preliminary test of the effectiveness of various educational interventions to promote adoption of a whole-food, plant-strong diet and reduce specific cardiovascular risk factors in Veterans, and subsequently perform a preliminary pilot study on whether this dietary approach will change plaque inflammation and endothelial function.

APOA2 Gene, Diet, Inflammation and Gut Health

Nutrients and chemicals in food are able to regulate expression of genetic elements. Gene-nutrient interaction in response to unhealthy diets can increase an individual's risk, shifting the individual from health toward the development of chronic disease. The apolipoprotein A2 (APOA2) gene may either put individuals at risk for or protect from obesity in the presence of cer...

Plant Based Diet, Ethnicity, and the Gut Microbiome

Samples will be collected to determine human genetic variation, fecal and oral microbial communities, and metabolome products. Several evolutionary and ecological diversity metrics will be distilled to test: a) if microbiome variation within each ethnicity is less than that between ethnicities; b) if microbiome variation is finely structured according to genetic relatedness...

Effect of Oxidized Plant Sterols on Serum Concentrations of Plant Sterol Oxidation Products
