Human Detection of Glucose Polymers

2015-10-28 14:38:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Although salivary contents play a major role in the early stage of food digestion process, their role in taste perception of glucose polymers is essentially unknown. It is hypothesized that the differences in salivary contents, more specifically salivary amylase concentration and activity, influence taste perception of glucose polymers and ultimately eating behavior, which is related to risks in various diseases. The current project is designed to investigate 2 aims. Aim 1 will investigate the variation in salivary contents across individuals and its role in taste perception of glucose polymers. Aim 2 will focus on the role of salivary contents in food liking and disliking.

Acarbose Anti-aging Effects in Geriatric Subjects

This study addresses a "lifespan approach to healthy development and aging" with direct relevance to humans by testing the anti-aging effects of acarbose in humans. It is a pilot study to:...

Study of Acarbose in Longevity

The investigators are studying the effects of acarbose on muscle and adipose gene transcription in older adults.

Bioequivalence Study for Acarbose/Metformin FDC

The purpose of this study is to establish the bioequivalence (i.e. similar pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics characteristics) between acarbose/metformin FDC (50 mg/500 mg) and loose co...

Effect of Gemigliptin or Acarbose on Endothelial Function in Type 2 DM Patients

This is a phase 4, single center, randomized, open-labeled study. The primary objective of the study is to compare effect of gemigliptin and acarbose on endothelial function. Subjects are...

Recent sociological research has raised important sociological and ethical questions about the role of financial rewards in terms of healthy volunteer involvement in clinical trials. Research suggests...

Evaluation of pharmacokinetics and safety with bioequivalence of Amlodipine in healthy Chinese volunteers: Bioequivalence Study Findings.

Amlodipine, a main series of L-type calcium channel blockers (CCBs), exerts potent antihypertensive effects. The aim of this trial was to explore the pharmacokinetics (PK) and safety with bioequivalen...

Increased systemic endothelial-dependent microvascular reactivity after ingestion of a high-carbohydrate snack in young, healthy volunteers.

This study evaluated the acute effect of a high-carbohydrate snack (HCS) on systemic microvascular function of healthy, young volunteers, using laser speckle contrast imaging (LSCI).

Early and late effects of remote ischemic preconditioning on spirometry and gas exchange in healthy volunteers.

Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIP) may protect remote organs from ischemia-reperfusion-injury (IRI) in surgical and non-surgical patients. There are few data available on RIP and lung function, esp...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Persons with no known significant health problems who are recruited to participate in research to test a new drug, device, or intervention as controls for a patient group. (from http://clinicalcenter.nih.gov/recruit/volunteers.html, accessed 2/14/2013)

Hospital or other institutional ethics committees established to consider the ethical dimensions of patient care. Distinguish from ETHICS COMMITTEES, RESEARCH, which are established to monitor the welfare of patients or healthy volunteers participating in research studies.

Human experimentation that is not intended to benefit the subjects on whom it is performed. Phase I drug studies (CLINICAL TRIALS, PHASE I AS TOPIC) and research involving healthy volunteers are examples of nontherapeutic human experimentation.

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

Governmental guidelines and objectives pertaining to public food supply and nutrition including recommendations for healthy diet and changes in food habits to ensure healthy diet.
