Phytochemicals as potential candidates to combat obesity via adipose non-shivering thermogenesis.

Obesity is a chronic metabolic disease caused by a long-term imbalance between energy intake and expenditure. The discovery of three different shades of adipose tissues has implications in terms of un...

Role of APPL1 in BAT thermogenesis.

The activation of brown adipose tissue (BAT) is considered as a promising therapeutic target for obesity. APPL1 (Adaptor protein containing the Pleckstrin homology domain, Phosphotyrosine binding doma...

Knockout of the X-linked in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus impairs sympathetic output to brown fat and causes obesity.

Fibroblast growth factor (FGF)13, a nonsecreted, X-linked, FGF homologous factor, is differentially expressed in adipocytes in response to diet, yet 's role in metabolism has not been explored. Hetero...

Impact of Obesity on the Metabolic Control of Type 2 Diabetes: Results of the Turkish Nationwide Survey of Glycemic and Other Metabolic Parameters of Patients with Diabetes Mellitus (TEMD Obesity Study).

Obesity is the main obstacle for metabolic control in patients with type 2 diabetes. Turkey has the highest prevalence of obesity and type 2 diabetes in Europe. The effect of obesity on the metabolic ...

Morbid Obesity as a Therapeutic Target for Heart Failure.

This review will define morbid obesity and relationship between morbid obesity and heart failure syndromes. It will delve into unique challenges facing patients with dual diagnoses of heart failure an...

Clinical Trials [8307 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Target Temperature Management After Cardiac Arrest

Experimental studies and previous clinical trials suggest an improvement in mortality and neurological function with hypothermia after cardiac arrest. However, the accrued evidence is inco...

Hypothermia or Normothermia-Targeted Temperature Management After Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest-trial

ILCOR guidelines recommend Target Temperature Management (TTM) to between 32°C and 36°C after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, based on low quality evidence. In a previous trial, TTM at 3...

Efficiency of Coupling Targeted Temperature Management to Brain Temperature in Severe Brain Injury

In severe brain-injured patients, it is recommended to strictly control the fever in order to limit brain damage (objective of neuroprotection) via the targeted temperature management (TTM...

Co-Existent Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Obesity: Finding Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT) Targets for Intervention

Rationale: Obesity is an increasing childhood epidemic in Canada. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a complication of obesity which causes cardiovascular disease, reduced quality of life, ...

Angiotensin-(1-7) and Energy Expenditure in Human Obesity

The objective of this study is to better define the role of the hormone angiotensin-(1-7) in energy balance. We will test the hypothesis that angiotensin-(1-7) increases energy expenditure...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The generation of heat in order to maintain body temperature. The uncoupled oxidation of fatty acids contained within brown adipose tissue and SHIVERING are examples of thermogenesis in MAMMALS.

The processes of heating and cooling that an organism uses to control its temperature.

A mitochondrial uncoupling protein that is expressed in heart and skeletal muscle tissues. It functions to regulate tissue respiration, energy balance, and THERMOGENESIS. Mutations in the UCP3 gene are associated with OBESITY.

A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.

An integrated professional approach to screening, evaluation, control, and reduction of abnormal WEIGHT GAIN.
