Weekly ONe-Day WatER-only Fasting InterventionaL Trial for Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol Reduction

2016-05-13 00:08:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The goal of this study is to determine how effective repeated fasting over 26 weeks (6 months) is at improving risk parameters that are surrogate endpoints for cardiovascular diseases, metabolic dysregulation and cognitive impairments.

Subjects will be randomized 1:1 to water-only fasting or to their ad libitum usual diet, with randomization performed within strata based on fasting history (≤180 hours or 181-720 hours of total fasting for >12 consecutive hours per episode in the previous two years). Subjects will be assessed at 4, 13 and 26 weeks following randomization.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An autosomal recessive fructose metabolism disorder due to absent or deficient fructose-1,6-diphosphatase activity. Gluconeogenesis is impaired, resulting in accumulation of gluconeogenic precursors (e.g., amino acids, lactate, ketones) and manifested as hypoglycemia, ketosis, and lactic acidosis. Episodes in the newborn infant are often lethal. Later episodes are often brought on by fasting and febrile infections. As patients age through early childhood, tolerance to fasting improves and development becomes normal.

An intermittent and self-limiting headache disorder in individuals with CEREBROSPINAL FLUID SHUNTS emplaced for the treatment of HYDROCEPHALUS. The symptoms of headache, vomiting, and cranial neuropathies are associated with intermittent obstruction of the shunt.

Instruments that generate intermittent forces, uniformed or graduated, to facilitate the emptying of VEINS. These devices are used to reduce limb EDEMA and prevent venous THROMBOEMBOLISM, such as deep vein thrombosis in the legs.

Abstaining from all food.

A screening phenotype consisting of both elevated WAIST CIRCUMFERENCE and elevated fasting TRIGLYCERIDES level.
