The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of a minimal intervention on risk perception of physical inactivity in patients with known coronary heart disease (CHD) and patients at risk for CHD. Therefore half of the patients (intervention group) get a personal feedback on their individual level of physical activity measured by pedometers and self-report questionnaires plus information about the risk factor 'physical inactivity' for heart diseases. Following the hypothes...
This is an interventional study enrolling older individuals aged 60-85y to observe changes during physical inactivity. This study is investigating the relation between short-term physical inactivity and the impact of muscle health and function. The enrollment goal is 15 participants. The study will occur over the course of a month where participants will undergo testing before and after a reduction in physically activity levels. There will be a screening event collecting baseli...
In cohort studies, a Mediterranean Dietary Pattern (MDP) has been consistently associated with reduced dementia incidence. The efficacy of a MDP to prevent dementia has never been directly demonstrated by RCTs, with existing research limited to cognition as a secondary outcome. Furthermore, despite their likely additive effects, the combined impact of Physical Activity (PA) and a MDP on dementia risk is unknown. MedEx-UK is a RCT that will evaluate the feasibility of a multi-d...
To evaluate the early metabolic responses (whole body and within muscle tissue) to a single day of whole body physical inactivity (i.e. bed-rest), and evaluate the contribution of inactivity per se vs alterations in diet
Studies have shown conflicting results of the effect of exercise on dementia patients. The aim of this study is to examine the role of physical activity on the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia in older persons. To promote the benefits of aerobic exercise on dementia patients and encourage exercise prescription in the management of dementia subjects.
Despite the acknowledgment that physical activity is important for health, there are still few population-based or school-based studies that uses the current physical activity guidelines for adolescents. Physical inactivity was defined a less than 300 min/w of moderate to vigorous-intensity physical activity practice. Previous research has shown very high prevalence rates of physically inactive adolescents and a strong association with demographic, socioeconomic and bio...
This experiment consists on a 20-day reduction in daily step in free-living active individuals to induce physical inactivity. This will be used to test the efficacy of the anti-oxidant cocktail we aim to test as a new countermeasure in 2016 during the 60-d bed rest planed by ESA/CNES. The objective of this study is to investigate whether the cocktail of natural antioxidants XXS-2A comprising vitamin E and coupled with omega-3 helps to prevent and / or reduce the glucose ...
The aim is to assess the impact of physical inactivity on muscle amino acid balance. In addition, we will evaluate how the diet and/or a pharmacological intervention designed to manipulate lipid metabolism (acipimox) will modulate muscle amino acid balance.
This project is based on a three-year program that aims to improve the knowledge of the socioeconomic consequences of dementia in Norway. By including patients with and without dementia in four different cohorts (from nursing homes, from memory clinics, home-dwelling persons with dementia and elderly persons without dementia), the project's aim is to describe tha course of dementia, the economical cost of dementia and to look into possible risk factors for dementia.
The purpose of this study is to determine if short-term adoption of a Westernized lifestyle characterized by physical inactivity and increased consumption of fructose will result in metabolic and vascular dysfunction. Healthy individuals aged 18-45 years old will undergo an acute period of physical inactivity (10 days) coupled with increased fructose consumption. Augmented fructose consumption will be achieved via commercially available soda beverages which are high in fructose...
Physical inactivity results in reductions in glucose tolerance and less sensitivity to insulin. If this inactivity lasts long enough it can result in insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. A high protein diet can reduce elevated glucose levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes. Thus the investigators are interested in establishing if during a period of inactivity if a diet modification can minimize the glucose changes normally observed with inactivity. The objective of this ...
With the increasing average of life span, age-related neurodegenerative disorders such as Dementia is a major health concern in nowadays society. However, strategies for long-term management of Dementia symptoms/manifestations need to be optimized. Physical exercise is a widely recommended intervention for most disease conditions, known to promote not only physical but also mental health. In the context of Dementia, the outcomes of exercise interventions are unclear. Therefore,...
The purpose of this study is to determine how a decline in physical activity acutely leads to a decrease in insulin sensitivity in skeletal muscle. The hypothesis is that the loss of insulin sensitivity following physical inactivity is caused by a rapid reduction in skeletal muscle mitochondrial oxidative capacity.
In a pilot study 90 physically inactive patients will be randomized to three different intervention groups; mindfulness training, mindfulness training and Physical Activity Prescription (PaP®) or only PaP®. Follow-up will be done at baseline, three and six months with questionnaires, accelerometers and analysis of traditional risk factors to evaluate whether mindfulness may increase physical activity and decrease physical inactivity.
This study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, fixed dose study currently being conducted on two geropsychiatric units at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic. It seeks to evaluate the short-term safety and efficacy of citalopram and perphenazine in the treatment of 112 patients suffering from behavioral disturbances associated with dementia. Findings from this research may directly lead to improved acute pharmacotherapy for psychosis and behavioral problems ...
This project aims to leverage existing data from a large observational prospective study on dementia, the Three-City study, to investigate the relationship between intakes of polyphenols and the risk to develop dementia in the 12 years following dietary assessment.
Physical activity is thought to be a key element in preventing the obesity epidemic and the associated cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. However population-based studies directed at promoting physical activity in youth have shown limited success in obesity prevention. The aim of this study is to assess whether an intervention integrating socioecological changes, which has the potential to induce sustained changes in physical activity, prevents overweight and cardiovascular...
Physical activity improves cognitive function and the ability to perform activities of daily living in people with dementia and reduces caregivers' burden thus, enhancing quality of life of people with dementia and their caregivers. The wish of most people with dementia, and their caregivers, is to live at their home, for as long as possible. However community-dwelling people with dementia have low levels of physical activity, increasing dependency, which often leads to institu...
The purpose of this study is to test the effect of active video game play on physical activity of 9-13 year old children in their natural home environments. We observe how much physical activity children engage in after receiving two different active Wii video games and for how long they play. Active video games offer promise of minimizing children's physical inactivity.
The purpose of this study is to use a brain imaging method called PIB PET VAT PET to determine dementia subtypes in patients with Parkinson's disease. The ultimate goal of this project is to be able to identify individuals with PD who are at risk of developing dementia, and to distinguish the underlying cause of dementia.
Fronto lobe dementia constitutes 10-20 % of dementia conditions within younger persons (>65). People with neuronal degeneration in frontal and temporal lobes demonstrate a decline in social conduct, apathy, loss of insight that is gradual and progressive. Family members often experience guilt and shame because of the patients' behavior before institutionalization, and different behavioral disorders will cause great challenges to family caregivers and to staff after institutiona...
The aim of this project is to study the safety and efficacy of anthocyanins in improving key dementia-related mechanisms and cognitive functioning in older people at risk for dementia. Secondary analyses will include a variety of biological measures, including biochemistry, imaging and cardiovascular measures.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether movement-oriented dementia care has a positive effect on quality of life and independence in activities of daily living (ADL) in nursing-home residents with dementia. It was hypothesized that movement-oriented dementia care has a positive effect on quality of life and independence in ADL, as well as on mood, behavior, cognition and physical functioning, in comparison to regular care.
Physical inactivity is a major public health problem in the United States. Research has shown that physical activity levels decline during adolescence, and the decline is greater in females than males. The purpose of this study is to evaluate a life-skills oriented physical activity intervention at increasing activity levels and decreasing cardiovascular risk factors in adolescent females.
