The Pediatric Obesity Research Registry will function to collect and catalog historical and medical chart related clinical data of patients presenting with pediatric obesity and who agree to participate.
The purpose of this trial is to examine whether adding greater physical activity to standard family-based behavioral pediatric obesity treatment decreases the amount of visceral fat among treated overweight children.
Investigators propose to pilot an adolescent obesity intervention, TEENS+, to examine the feasibility of this dietary intervention strategy and preliminary effectiveness of two models of parental involvement within adolescent obesity treatment.
The purpose of this pilot study is to assess patient accessibility, interest and response in order to design an adequately powered study to compare brief, group cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for weight loss to usual care in non-demented patients above the age of 18 years old who are currently taking atypical antipsychotic medications. This pilot study is necessary, with current limitations of data in this area, to design an adequately powered study to address the difficult...
Pediatric obesity interventions for low-income populations are increasingly delivered in children's homes, which may make treatment more accessible to families and enhance the potency of the intervention in several ways. This randomized trial will directly test whether delivering family-based behavioral interventions for pediatric overweight/obesity in the home setting improves weight loss outcomes in low-income children relative to medical center-based treatment. The trial wil...
Summer vacation represents a "window of vulnerability" where dramatic declines in both health and academics occur for elementary age children. Currently, there are no summer programs that incorporate curriculum addressing both unhealthy weight gains and academic achievement simultaneously. This work represents an important step towards addressing important public health goals - obesity and learning - through a comprehensive program delivered during a timeframe - summer vacation...
The impact of breastfeeding on the infant microbiome in vaginally and Cesarean delivered offspring from obese and normal weight mothers.
The long-term goal of this proposal is to understand the impact of obesity and obesity treatment on bone health during adolescence and how to preserve it. The recent pediatric obesity epidemic raises important clinical and public health questions about the effects of childhood-onset obesity and its treatment on bone health. Osteoporotic fractures are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the aged, and peak bone mass (PBM), achieved shortly after puberty, is a key determin...
Central obesity, present in the metabolic syndrome (MS), is associated with increased risk of insulin resistance (RI). The aim of the project is to evaluate the protective effect of comprehensive intervention (Mediterranean diet + physical activity) in the development of RI in children with central obesity based on genetic and epigenetic markers.
Behavioral weight loss, the current treatment of choice for moderate obesity, achieves impressive short term results, however, weight regain following treatment is a major problem. Over 50% of participants in behavioral weight loss programs report difficulty with internal antecedents to unhealthy weight control behaviors and this difficulty is associated with weight regain following treatment. Current treatment approaches do not adequately address these antecedents. The aim of ...
The aim of this project is to establish a bio-repository of diverse specimen types to provide investigators access to specimens in order to further research related to metabolism and the microbiome in the pediatric population.
This study provides a sound basis towards a better understanding of the biochemical mechanisms behind childhood obesity and its metabolic phenotypes, which will be of great importance towards the development of more personalized prevention and treatment in future.
This project will apply the concepts from the Chronic Care Model to the problem of pediatric obesity and proposes: 1) to assess the effectiveness of teaching primary care providers (in diverse practice settings) to use specific communication strategies with parents of overweight and obese children to help them take steps with their child toward healthy behavior change; 2) to offer core components of an efficacious evidence-based pediatric obesity treatment within the pediatric ...
This trial is being conducted in pediatric patients with Hypothalamic Obesity. This generally occurs in people who have had an injury to or tumor in their hypothalamus (gland or organ that secretes hormones). The purpose of this trial is to see how an investigational treatment controls the hormone insulin by lowering the level of insulin in the body resulting in a weight loss in children who are at least 6 years of age but less than 18 years of age. Some children in this tria...
This study is looking at the feasibility and efficacy of using SIMmersion's PeopleSim technology to train providers through role playing simulations to effectively conduct discussions with parents to provide intervention for, and reduce the likelihood of progression to childhood obesity.
Pediatric primary hypertension is increasingly common, occurring in 5-10% of normal-weight children and up to 25% of children with obesity. It is a risk factor for adult cardiovascular and renal disease. But even during childhood, hypertension is associated with significant morbidity, including cognitive impairment and organ damage. In the heart and kidneys, this organ damage is characterized by thickened heart muscle (left ventricular hypertrophy) and spillage of protein in th...
The purpose of this study is to design a comprehensive nutrition and physical activity strategy to gain a broad understanding of the social and cultural role of food and physical activity among workers. Perspectives on innovative interventions that are socially feasible and culturally acceptable will also be obtained. Health lifestyle promotion interventions addressing portion control, healthy nutrition, and increasing physical activity will be tested.
This will be a descriptive study designed to evaluate the propensity for hospitalized pediatric patients treated adequately with Clinolipid or standard of care for up to 90 days to develop Essential Fatty Acid Deficiency (EFAD). Additionally, this study design will evaluate the safety and efficacy of using Clinolipid in a pediatric population.
Objective: Obesity amongst children is a public health issue in the United States and is rising at an alarming rate. The purpose of this study is to determine if there is any correlation between At Risk body weight (overweight and obese) and immediate health of the pediatric population. Methodology: As part of routine patient care, we measured length in addition to weight of patients 2 years to 18 years of age presenting to the pediatric emergency department. A report...
The purpose of the current study is examine the feasibility and efficacy of providing a behavioral family intervention in 30 youth 10 to 17 years of age who are obese and attending a multidisciplinary pediatric obesity clinic and their parents. Participating families will complete assessments consisting of weight status, dietary intake, physical activity, health-related quality of life, psychological functioning, home-food environment, parenting skills, and self-efficacy at pre...
The overarching goal of this proposal is to understand the comparative effectiveness of obesity counseling as covered by CMS in improving weight loss for adults either with or at high risk of type 2 diabetes. CMS and most insurers now include obesity screening and counseling benefits, with no cost sharing to patients. Since overweight patients are at highest risk for diabetes, improved weight management services could prevent diabetes and its negative health outcomes. Beneficia...
This is a prospective, open-label, multicenter, non-comparative, single arm study of pediatric subjects with Plasmodium vivax (P. vivax) malaria, aged 6 months to =2 years to
The investigators want to learn more about obesity, the development of insulin resistance, and Type 2 Diabetes in children. The investigators will do this through collecting information about children's health and conducting experiments on a variety of samples.
Outpatient childhood obesity treatment has limited efficacy. This study aims to improve the health habits of parents of obese 5-12 year old children enrolled in the Duke Healthy Lifestyles Program by delivering educational and supportive text messages to the parent's mobile device.
This is a phase II trial of reduced intensity conditioning with Bu/Flu/ATG in pediatric patients with hematologic malignancies at high risk for transplant related mortality with standard transplantation. Patients qualify based on organ system dysfunction, active but stable infection, history of previous transplant or late stage disease. We plan to enroll 45 patients through the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium (PBMTC) and anticipate that the outcome of the tri...
