Endotoxin and Intestinal Flora Before and After Gastric Bypass or Banding in Diabetics

2014-08-27 03:19:57 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This research project is designed to investigate endotoxin (a toxin present in the wall of certain kinds of bacteria) levels and the type of bacteria present in the intestine before and after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or gastric banding surgery in patients that meet the classification for morbid obesity (body mass index >40 kg/m2) and type 2 diabetes. It is known that the type of bacteria present in the intestines of normal weight and obese individuals are different, and it is also known that people with obesity and type 2 diabetes have higher levels of endotoxin. It has been shown that the bacteria change over the long run after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery, but the short-term effects are not known and the endotoxin levels after this procedure have never been studied.

Description

Evidence exists that (i) morbidly obese, T2D patients undergoing RYGB are highly likely to resolve T2D symptoms or dramatically reduce oral and/or insulin requirements, (ii) metabolic endotoxemia may incite the pathologic conditions of low-grade inflammation and subsequently insulin resistance, obesity and T2D, (iii) significant intestinal microbiologic flora differences exist between normal weight and obese/diabetic individuals, and (iv) RYGB alters long-term intestinal microbiologic flora. Therefore, it is logical to evaluate short- and long-term circulating endotoxin concentrations and intestinal microbiologic flora in context with weight loss and restoration of euglycemia to expand our knowledge of the mechanism of the benefits observed following RYGB.

Bariatric Arterial Embolization for Morbid Obesity

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of left gastric artery embolization(bariatric arterial embolization) for morbid obesity. When the target vessel is blo...

Safety and Effectiveness Study of The Swedish Adjustable Gastric Band (SAGB) in the Treatment of Morbid Obesity

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the Swedish Adjustable Gastric Band (SAGB) is safe, and effective in achieving weight loss in patients with Morbid Obesity.

Transoral Gastroplasty for the Treatment of Morbid Obesity

The TOGA® trial is a prospective, multi-center, randomized sham-controlled trial designed to determine the safety and effectiveness of the TOGA System for the treatment of morbid obesity....

Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding With Truncal Vagotomy

Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding (LAGB) is a gold standard in the surgical treatment of morbid obesity. We hypothesize that the addition of truncal vagotomy (cutting of nerves to t...

4XL Study - Obesity Surgery in Adolescence

The purpose of this study on adolescents between 13 and 18 years of age with morbid obesity is to determine whether surgical treatment gives more health benefits than standard conservative...

Reliability of International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Edition, Codes to Detect Morbid Obesity in Patients Undergoing Total Hip Arthroplasty.

Although the impact of coding errors, with respect to obesity, has been previously reported, it is unclear whether morbid obesity is prone to similar coding inaccuracies. Therefore, the purpose of thi...

Associations of Prepregnancy Morbid Obesity and Prenatal Depression with Gestational Weight Gain.

Pregnancy outcomes and infant growth and development are influenced by various prenatal and postnatal factors. Gestational weight gain (GWG) is an important indicator of pregnancy management and outco...

Decrease of Plasma Soluble (Pro)renin Receptor by Bariatric Surgery in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Morbid Obesity.

Plasma concentrations of soluble (pro)renin receptor [s(P)RR], which are elevated in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), have not been studied in morbid obesity. The aim of this study is to c...

Morbid Obesity Does not Increase Morbidity or Mortality in Robotic Cardiac Surgery.

Morbid obesity (body mass index ≥ 35 kg/m) usually confers a higher perioperative risk in cardiac surgery. Robotic cardiac surgery may have many advantages for these high-risk patients.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy for Morbid Obesity at a Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Class III obesity is a global health emergency associated with an increase in the incidence of many other diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, cancer, obstructive s...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The condition of weighing two, three, or more times the ideal weight, so called because it is associated with many serious and life-threatening disorders. In the BODY MASS INDEX, morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2.

A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).

Surgical procedures aimed at producing major WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with MORBID OBESITY.

An inflatable device implanted in the stomach as an adjunct to therapy of morbid obesity. Specific types include the silicone Garren-Edwards Gastric Bubble (GEGB), approved by the FDA in 1985, and the Ballobes Balloon.

A procedure consisting of the SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS of the proximal part of the JEJUNUM to the distal portion of the ILEUM, so as to bypass the nutrient-absorptive segment of the SMALL INTESTINE. Due to the severe malnutrition and life-threatening metabolic complications, this method is no longer used to treat MORBID OBESITY.
