Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial of Weight Loss Programs in Obese Persons

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

Summary

The purpose of this study is to compare two approaches to a diet and exercise-based weight loss program.

Description

The high prevalence of obesity and its medical consequences make it one of the most important public health issues in the United States today. Few interventions have been consistently successful at reducing obesity. This trial will test an intervention program that lasts 22 weeks, with 16 evening sessions and two weekend days. Participants will be randomized to one of two arms. Both arms will receive diet and exercise intervention elements. The study aims for gradual weight loss, with a calorie target that will maintain ideal body weight, rather than a more calorie restricted diet. The exercise component is based around increasing walking. The arms will compare methods for producing long-lasting behavior change.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.

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 sub-PHENOTYPE of obese individuals who have a risk for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES between that of healthy individuals with normal weight and unhealthy individuals with obesity.

BODY MASS INDEX in children (ages 2-12) and in adolescents (ages 13-18) that is grossly above the recommended cut-off for a specific age and sex. For infants less than 2 years of age, obesity is determined based on standard weight-for-length percentile measures.

Agents that increase energy expenditure and weight loss by neural and chemical regulation. Beta-adrenergic agents and serotoninergic drugs have been experimentally used in patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) to treat obesity.
