A white light scanner can more accurately measure body contouring subjects than standard anthropomorphic methods.
A 3-D digital body camera that employs non-intrusive white light phase profilometry and 24 coordinated charge-coupled cameras scans and produces a "point cloud" image of the subject. The result of the two-minute scan process is an accurate three-dimensional body model of the subject, consisting of over 1.2 million surface points. The point cloud is compressed to provide programmable measurement extraction profiles (MEP's) that automatically extracts linear and circumferential measurements. Subjects are scanned and anthropometrically measured pre-operatively, and at 3, 6 and 9 months post-op.

Lipodystrophy Connect is an online survey tool designed to collect demographic data and health information from individuals with Lipodystrophy.
Metreleptin was approved in the United States as adjunct to diet as replacement therapy to treat the complications of leptin deficiency in patients with congenital or acquired generalized ...
The metabolic and molecular basis of lipodystrophy syndrome in HIV-infected patients is not known. Whether besides protease inhibitors, other antiretroviral drugs, HIV infection and reduc...
The purpose of this study is to examine whether replacing leptin to normal levels can reverse the changes in fat distribution, lipid profile, and other metabolic problems associated with h...
Hypothesis: systemic therapy with corticosteroid induces morphological changes (e.g., moon face, buffalo neck) called lipodystrophy (LD). We hypothesize that this LD is associated with var...
Familial partial lipodystrophy type 1 is an extreme form of central adiposity with peripheral lipodystrophy associated with severe manifestations of the metabolic syndrome, often poorly responsive to ...
Interleukin (IL)-18 is involved in regulation of lipid and glucose metabolism. Mice lacking whole-body IL-18 signalling are prone to develop weight gain and insulin resistance, a phenotype which is as...
Abacavir has replaced stavudine in antiretroviral therapy (ART) regimens because it has largely been phased out as a result of toxicity concerns; this loss has reduced further the already-limited drug...
Type 2 congenital generalized lipodystrophy (CGL2, OMIM 269700) is a rare autosomal recessive disease, characterized by the generalized absence of adipose tissue at birth or in early infancy. Pathogen...
Lamin A/C (LMNA) gene mutations cause a heterogeneous group of progeroid disorders including Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS), mandibuloacral dysplasia, and atypical progeroid syndrome (APS...
A collection of heterogenous conditions resulting from defective LIPID METABOLISM and characterized by ADIPOSE TISSUE atrophy. Often there is redistribution of body fat resulting in peripheral fat wasting and central adiposity. They include generalized, localized, congenital, and acquired lipodystrophy.
A type of diabetes mellitus that is characterized by severe INSULIN RESISTANCE and LIPODYSTROPHY. The latter may be generalized, partial, acquired, or congenital (LIPODYSTROPHY, CONGENITAL GENERALIZED).
Congenital disorders, usually autosomal recessive, characterized by severe generalized lack of ADIPOSE TISSUE, extreme INSULIN RESISTANCE, and HYPERTRIGLYCERIDEMIA.
Defective metabolism leading to fat maldistribution in patients infected with HIV. The etiology appears to be multifactorial and probably involves some combination of infection-induced alterations in metabolism, direct effects of antiretroviral therapy, and patient-related factors.
Inherited conditions characterized by the partial loss of ADIPOSE TISSUE, either confined to the extremities with normal or increased fat deposits on the face, neck and trunk (type 1), or confined to the loss of SUBCUTANEOUS FAT from the limbs and trunk (type 2).
