The aim of this study is to identify the psychological, emotional and lifestyle variables that can have an influence on the different components of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and develop a ...
The age-related loss of skeletal muscle mass (i.e. sarcopenia)and muscle performance (i.e. strength and power), decreases functionality and the ability to perform activities of daily livin...
The main aim of the MIND-ADmini pilot trial is to evaluate the feasibility of a multimodal lifestyle intervention among patients with prodromal AD.
Patients with bipolar disorder are at increased risk of weight gain, which in turn, increases the risk for somatic disease and non-adherence to maintenance therapy. Therefore, intervention...
This trial will test the hypothesis that among obese adolescents, treatment with extended-release metformin (Glucophage® XR), coupled with a lifestyle intervention, will result in decreas...

Muscle mass is regulated by the balance between the synthesis and degradation of muscle proteins. Loss of skeletal muscle mass is associated with an increased risk of developing metabolic diseases suc...
Decreased muscle mass and muscle strength are independent predictors of poor postoperative recovery in patients with esophageal cancer. If there is an association between muscle mass and muscle streng...
Background Obesity is a chronic disease due to the comorbidity associated with it and the need for long-term medical care. Therapeutic intervention is possible at every stage of pathophysiology. Aim T...
The level of body-mass index (BMI) associated with the lowest risk of death remains unclear. Although differences in muscle mass limit the utility of BMI as a measure of adiposity, no study has direct...
A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.
An analytical method used in determining the identity of a chemical based on its mass using mass analyzers/mass spectrometers.
A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.
A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.
The smooth muscle coat of the uterus, which forms the main mass of the organ.
