The investigators will evaluate the effects of of higher protein/amino acid dosing (≥2.2 g/kg/d) vs usual care of protein/amino acid dosing (≤1.2 g/kg/d) over muscle mass in nutritionally high risk ill patients.
The primary hypothesis is that titration of ACE inhibitor and Angiotensin Receptor Blockers (ARBs)to reduce urine protein excretion to < 500 mg per day in Fabry Patients receiving agalsidase beta therapy at 1 mg/kg every two weeks will slow the progression rate of decline of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) compared to case controls drawn from the Genzyme-sponsored Phase III extension study (GFR 60 to 125 ml/min/1.73 m², urine protein > 1 gram/day) or the Phase IV study (GFR 2...
This randomized, open-label, prospective study will evaluate the renal effective effect of compound α-Keto Acid plus low protein diet in PD Patients.
Obesity levels worldwide have tripled since the mid 1070's. Obesity and its co-morbidities, metabolic syndrome, type II diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, are serious widespread health concerns which urgently need to be addressed. G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), such as the ghrelin receptor (GHS-R1a), are well known for their key role in the homeostatic control of food intake and energy balance. Ghrelin is the major hunger hormone in the body and ghrelin-receptor antago...
Breast cancer cells have certain characteristics or traits--these traits are called biomarkers. There are three biomarkers that help doctors decide which treatment to give any given patient. These biomarkers are the estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PgR), and HER2 protein. Breast cancer cells that have a large number of estrogen or progesterone receptors are called ER and/or PgR positive. Cancers that are ER and/or PgR positive use the hormones estrogen and progest...
Protein is an essential nutrient that one's diet to maintain important bodily functions and to recover from exercise. Currently, the Indicator Amino Acid Oxidation method (IAAO) has been used to determine protein requirements in a variety of populations including children, neonates, the elderly and recently, resistance trained populations. This study serves to test the robustness of the IAAO method and to determine if high habitual dietary protein intake, as seen in resistance ...
Soy and whey protein have different concentrations of leucine, an amino acid known to be a particularly potent simulator of muscle protein synthesis. The purpose of this study is to determine whether matching soy and whey protein supplements for leucine content instead of by total protein content would contribute to differences in strength increases and muscle growth in response to 12 wk of resistance training.
The impact of protein sources such as beef as part of Western diet on calcium retention remains controversial. We propose to test the hypothesis that the positive effect of high protein intake (especially from meat protein) can offset the negative effect of protein-induced net acid load on bone metabolism and the retention of body calcium. Healthy postmenopausal women recruited from the community will consume two diets differing in meat protein and acid load for 7 weeks. Cal...
This study evaluates the effectiveness of persuasive direct mail materials coupled with an incentive for increasing breast and colorectal cancer screening among people enrolled in Medicaid. Half of age- and gender-appropriate enrollees received this intervention; the other half received the same intervention 15 months later
We have established that dietary protein is an important regulator of intestinal calcium absorption in humans. However, we do not understand the mechanism by which dietary protein is affecting calcium absorption. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to evaluate whether dietary protein-induced changes in gastric acid secretion explain the observed changes in intestinal calcium absorption.
The main purpose of this research study is to collect information to learn how effective erlotinib (tarceva) is in combination with either bevacizumab or sulindac in treating patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. Erlotinib and bevacizumab are targeted therapy drugs that can control tumor growth by targeting specific abnormalities sometimes found on cancer cells. Erlotinib targets epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), and bevacizumab targets vascular e...
To conduct a randomized, double-blind, controlled clinical trial to determine the independent and combined effects of dietary conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and vitamin D supplementation on anabolic signaling, the expression of growth regulatory factors, and muscle protein turnover in older adults.
The investigators examined the effects of dietary protein intake in a mixed meal at two levels of protein amount on whole body protein metabolisms in older adults.
KDT501 is an orally administered product designed to help control impaired glucose and insulin regulation in patients with insulin resistance. Nonclinical studies demonstrate agonist activity of KDT501 at the G-protein coupled receptor 120 as well as other G-protein receptors. Nonclinical studies have also documented the ability of KDT501 to improve insulin sensitivity and glucose regulation as well as reduce proinflammatory signals. These properties combined with antihyperglyc...
Dietary protein consumption maximizes the anabolic response during resistance training (RT) by triggering muscle protein synthesis and providing the indispensable amino acids for a net positive protein balance. Leucine is considered the key amino acid in this process, suggesting that differences in protein quality may influence RT-induced gains in muscle mass and strength. In general, plant-based protein sources have lower leucine concentrations than animal-based protein source...
In this study, we will explore the feasibility of doing a randomized controlled trial in our Intensive care department, King Abdulaziz Medical City, Riyadh which will test a two-step approach to protein intake in which moderate amount is given in the first 5 days followed by a step-up to higher protein (with supplementation of whey protein) compared to continuation on moderate protein.
Protein requirements in individuals who participate in endurance-based exercise training have been suggested to be greater than the current recommended dietary allowance (RDA). Our recent study using the minimally invasive indicator amino acid oxidation (IAAO) technique have suggested that protein requirements in young men are at least 30% higher than the recommended protein intake. The present study will investigate the impact of protein sufficiency on protein metabolism ...
Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an inherited inborn error of phenylalanine (PHE) metabolism caused by decreased activity of phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) enzyme. Therefore, PHE accumulates in plasma leading to mental problems. Treatment is a phenylalanine-restricted diet with sufficient protein. However, the optimum protein requirements are still unknown and compliance with diet is not satisfactory in PKU adults. A Previously established technique called indicator amino acid oxidati...
This randomized clinical trial studies tamoxifen citrate in treating premenopausal women with estrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancer. Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy using tamoxifen citrate may fight breast cancer by blocking the use of estrogen by the tumor cells
Protein requirements in individuals who participate in endurance-based exercise training have been suggested to be greater than the current recommended dietary allowance (RDA). The biological value of protein depends on its amino acid composition. Essential amino acids are believed to have main role on whole body protein metabolism. However, it remains to be determined what role non-essential amino acids (NEAA) may have in regulating protein metabolism and contributing to the ...
The study purpose is to assess various protein blends, which differ in protein quality, and the impact on blood amino acid response in male subjects.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether low protein diet and very low protein diet supplemented keto-/amino acid is effective in preventing the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD , stage 2 to 5).
The expression of transporters involved in bile acid homeostasis is differentially regulated during obstructive cholestasis. Bile acids are also substrates of the drug efflux transporter breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP) that is highly expressed in the human intestine. Therefore we intend to analyze whether intestinal BCRP expression could be altered during cholestasis.
Our objective is to determine the dietary requirement of protein for strength and endurance exercise trained (more than 4 months training experience) individuals between 18 - 30 years of age using the indicator amino acid oxidation (IAO) method. This study will be the first to determine the required quantity of protein need per day in strength- and endurance trained young adults using the IAO method.
