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...

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of six weeks of electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) on the strength and muscle mass of the infraspinatus muscle. Twenty non-athletes (age: 24±3....
Low skeletal muscle mass (LMM) is a criterion to define both sarcopenia and malnutrition. Muscle mass varies with gender, height, weight or fat mass, and many indices of adjusted-muscle mass have been...
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...
Recent definitions of malnutrition include low muscle mass within its diagnostic criteria. In fact, malnutrition is one of the main risk factors of skeletal muscle loss contributing to the onset of sa...
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.
