The main research question this protocol aims to answer is whether treatment with growth hormone will impact body composition, quality of life, and energy balance in PWS adults, and if there is a loss of effects after cessation of treatment for at least 12 months.
The main research question this protocol aims to answer is whether treatment with growth hormone will impact body composition, quality of life, and energy balance in PWS adults, and if there is a loss of effects after cessation of treatment for at least 12 months. Specific outcomes to be evaluated are as follows:
• Increased IGF-1 as a function of human growth hormone dosage compared with baseline.
1. Improvement of indicators or risk factors for co-morbid diseases [diabetes (by measuring insulin and glucose levels), cardiovascular disease (by measuring lipids and fatty acids), and pulmonary function] in participants.
2. Improvement in quality of life measures as indicated by ratings on established behavior checklists in participants.
3. Changes in body composition (decreased fat, increased lean body mass and bone density) as determined by DEXA in participants.
4. Increased energy expenditure as determined by whole-room calorimeter measures (8 hour energy expenditure, RMR, TEF, mechanical work); diet records, physical activity monitors and strength measures.

The purpose of the study is to find out if people with Prader-Willi syndrome have a difference in the protein which changes inactive cortisone to the active stress hormone cortisol.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of a GLP-1 agonist on satiety hormones in patients with Prader-Willi Syndrome (genetic defect causing obesity).
The objective of this study is to collect data on tolerance and effects of early treatment with oxytocin in children with Prader Willi Syndrome aged from 3 to 4 years and to compare these ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of a once daily subcutaneous (SC) injectable formulation of RM-493 in obese subjects with Prader-Willi syndrome on tolerability, weight...
The aim of this study is to evaluate efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of GLWL-01 in the treatment of patients with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS).
Prader-Willi Syndrome is a genetic condition caused by an abnormality of chromosome 15, mostly resulting from a deletion.The prevalence of syndrome in Europe has been reported between 1 in 8,000 to 1 ...
Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a genetic disorder with multisystem involvement. There are a number of associated orthopaedic manifestations, the most recognized of which is scoliosis. The aim of this ...
Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a rare (1:20.000) genetic condition affecting both males and females. Among other features, in boys, the syndrome is characterized by cryptorchidism in 86-100% of cases,...
Excessive sleepiness is a common symptom in Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), and it negatively impacts the quality of life. Obstructive sleep apnea and narcolepsy phenotypes have been reported in PWS. We ...
Obesity, insulin resistance, and puberty seem to influence and been inversely associated with 25-hydroxy vitamin D (25OHD) levels. To our knowledge, a study on 25OHD in children and adolescents with P...
An autosomal dominant disorder caused by deletion of the proximal long arm of the paternal chromosome 15 (15q11-q13) or by inheritance of both of the pair of chromosomes 15 from the mother (UNIPARENTAL DISOMY) which are imprinted (GENETIC IMPRINTING) and hence silenced. Clinical manifestations include MENTAL RETARDATION; MUSCULAR HYPOTONIA; HYPERPHAGIA; OBESITY; short stature; HYPOGONADISM; STRABISMUS; and HYPERSOMNOLENCE. (Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p229)
Condition with a variable constellation of phenotypes due to deletion polymorphisms at chromosome location 22q11. It encompasses several syndromes with overlapping abnormalities including the DIGEORGE SYNDROME, VELOCARDIOFACIAL SYNDROME, and CONOTRUNCAL AMOMALY FACE SYNDROME. In addition, variable developmental problems and schizoid features are also associated with this syndrome. (From BMC Med Genet. 2009 Feb 25;10:16) Not all deletions at 22q11 result in the 22q11deletion syndrome.
Rare congenital disorder with multiple anomalies including: characteristic dysmorphic craniofacial features, musculoskeletal abnormalities, neurocognitive delay, and high prevalence of cancer. Germline mutations in H-Ras protein can cause Costello syndrome. Costello syndrome shows early phenotypic overlap with other disorders that involve MAP KINASE SIGNALING SYSTEM (e.g., NOONAN SYNDROME and cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome).
An autosomal dominant aneurysm with multisystem abnormalities caused by increased TGF-BETA signaling due to mutations in type I or II of TGF-BETA RECEPTOR. Additional craniofacial features include CLEFT PALATE; CRANIOSYNOSTOSIS; HYPERTELORISM; or bifid uvula. Phenotypes closely resemble MARFAN SYNDROME; Marfanoid craniosynostosis syndrome (Shprintzen-Goldberg syndrome); and EHLERS-DANLOS SYNDROME.
Birth defect that results in a partial or complete absence of the CORPUS CALLOSUM. It may be isolated or a part of a syndrome (e.g., AICARDI'S SYNDROME; ACROCALLOSAL SYNDROME; ANDERMANN SYNDROME; and HOLOPROSENCEPHALY). Clinical manifestations include neuromotor skill impairment and INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY of variable severity.
