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.

Evaluation of a Family-based Pediatric Obesity Program: TEENS+

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.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Obesity

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...

Creating Healthy Environments for Chicago Kids

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...

Improving Pediatric Obesity Practice Using Prompts

This study compares the effectiveness of electronic health record (EHR)-based tools to support the management of pediatric obesity in primary care. Half of clinicians will receive an interruptive "pop-up" alert and half will not. All clinicians will receive non-interruptive, inline decision support tools. We will examine the impact -- the added value versus unintended consequences -- of the interruptive alert on the quality of obesity management in pediatric primary care.

Pediatric Obesity and the Infant Microbiome

The impact of breastfeeding on the infant microbiome in vaginally and Cesarean delivered offspring from obese and normal weight mothers.

Healthy Summer Learners

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...

Nutritional Intake and Gut Microbiome

Pediatric obesity has been increasing in prevalence, but concerns have been raised around the world because no treatment has been found. Recently, however, research on gut microbiome has begun to become a new alternative. It has been shown that changes in the microbiome in adults may induce obesity. However, the results on children are still scarce. Unlike adults, children have few external factors such as alcohol, tobacco, stress, and cancer, making them suitable for obesity-r...

Bone Health of Obese Adolescents During Weight Loss

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...

Novel Executive Function Training for Obesity

Currently, the best behavioral treatments for obesity only work for 50% of adults, and of those who initially succeed, most do not maintain their weight loss. One reason for this failure may be due to neurocognitive deficits found among individuals with obesity, particularly related to executive function, which make it difficult for these adults to adhere to treatment recommendations. The proposed study aims to develop a Novel Executive Function Treatment (NEXT), which when adm...

Impact of Comprehensive Intervention on the Cardiometabolic Risk in Children With Central Obesity (IGENOI)Obesity

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.

Addressing Emotional and Cognitive Factors in Behavioral Weight Loss Treatment

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 ...

Pediatric Metabolism and Microbiome Repository

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.

Metabolic Phenotypes in Childhood Obesity

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.

Treatment of Childhood Obesity in Primary Care

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 ...

Pediatric Hypothalamic Obesity

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...

The SIM-PLICITY Study: The SIMulation Project - LIstening & Intervention in Pediatric obeSITY

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 and the Renin-Angiotensin System (PHRAS)

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...

Pediatric Study to Evaluate Risk of Developing Essential Fatty Acid Deficiency When Receiving Clinolipid or Standard-of-Care Lipid Emulsion

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.

Workplace-Sponsored Program to Reduce Obesity

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.

The Influence of Childhood Obesity on Presentation to a Pediatric Emergency Department

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.
