This study builds evidence on the importance of using safe drinking water during the nutritional treatment of children affected by Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM). The following hypotheses will be tested: 1.The addition of safe drinking water to SAM treatment will reduce exposure to pathogens that cause diarrhoeal disease, thereby reducing diarrhoea incidence among enrolled children. 2.Reductions in pathogen exposure and diarrhoeal disease will result in shorter recovery pe-rio...
This study will evaluate the impact of a pilot Rural Electric Kettle Promotion Program offered to low-income households in rural Anhui Province, China. The primary objective of this study is to determine whether this promotion program causes poverty households currently boiling their drinking water with solid-fuels (or drinking untreated water or bottled water) to switch to boiling their drinking water with electric kettles, and if so, how such a switch might improve safe drink...
This study evaluates the effect of alkaline (pH=9) versus neutral (pH=9) drinking-water on the gut microbiota of healthy male volunteers.
Drinking water is largely advocated for obesity prevention and management. Recent studies have suggested that water has a thermogenic effect, this has not been examined in children. In this study, we will measure the resting metabolic rate of 21 obese children before, and during drinking cold (4 degrees centigrade)water for up to 60 minutes.
The purpose of this study is to assess whether children under 2 years and other members of households in which HIV-positive mothers are providing replacement and complementary feeding would potentially benefit from the use of a filter designed to eliminate microbial pathogens from drinking water at the household level.
The water drinking test (WDT), is a predictive test that has been used to detect primary open angle glaucoma and recently has been demonstrated as a predictor of the diurnal tension curve. Clinically accurate provocative tests for asymptomatic eyes with shallow anterior chambers and narrow angles are highly desirable to detect patients prone to angle closure glaucoma. The aim of this pilot study is to evaluate the possible role of water drinking test in patients with narrow ang...
Patients affected by Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) need a safe and effective long-term treatment regimen. Unfortunately, there are still no disease-specific treatment for ADPKD approved in the US. A rational step towards identifying such agents is to test therapies that have a proven safety profile with mechanisms of action that can counter the disease progression. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether drinking increased amounts of water ...
The aim of this research study is to determine by laboratory analyses the effects of drinking silicon-rich water on bone health. This will be determined from blood and urine samples from subjects who will be asked to drink 1 liter per day of either silicon-rich water or water without silicon for 12 weeks.
Humans display a preference for salt although the reasons remain unclear. The aim was to examine the hypothesis that salt may enhance mood. The study compares the drinking of water with and without electrolytes (either dissolved in water or by capsule). Mood was rated over a period of 155 minutes
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the reproducibility of tonometry in the Goldmann applanation apparatus and pneumatic in the water drinking test.
The aim of this study is to determine whether drinking plain water when mildly dehydrated benefits cognitive performance and mood. Volunteers undergo a dehydration protocol designed to result in minor dehydration. While some participants receive two 150ml drinks of water others do not. Differences in cognitive functioning are assessed.
SODISWATER is a European Union funded health impact assessment study investigating the effect of sunlight to inactivate microbial pathogens in drinking water. This study was done by observing whether children younger than 5 years old who drink solar disinfected water were healthier than those who did not. Health was measured by how often the children had diarrhoea. Participants were given plastic bottles to place in the sun, water samples were then collected from these p...
The study will consist of five occasions with one week in between. BOLD signal intensity of the hypothalamus will be measured using fMRI. Measurements will be done before and after drinking 300 ml plain water (reference) or water to which different sweeteners will be added.
This study is being conducted in Sonoma County, California. Gastrointestinal illness and diarrhea are recognized as a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the elderly. One study showed that 51% of deaths caused by diarrhea over a 9-year period occurred in individuals over the age of 74 years. Although many infectious diseases are more problematic in the elderly because of a decline in immune function and a higher incidence of pre-existing malnutrition and dehydrati...
With the implementation of Universal Salt Iodization (USI) in 1995, China has successfully combated Iodine Deficiency Diseases (IDD). However, China is a country with a complicated iodine geographical environment with wide natural variation in the iodine content of drinking water. It has been reported that the water iodine of at least 11 provinces and cities in China is high, with nearly 31 million people exposed to the risks of excessive iodine intake. This has raised a new pu...
Unhealthy alcohol drinking is negatively influencing health of people and costing a large number of annual finance via "secondhand" effects. Additionally, unhealthy alcohol use covers a spectrum that is associated with varying degrees of risk to health. The investigators hypothesized that unhealthy alcohol drinking resulted in significant increase in anesthetic requirement during general anesthesia. This investigation would clarify the association between unhealthy alcohol use ...
The study will consist of five occasions with one week in between. BOLD signal intensity of the hypothalamus will be measured using fMRI. Measurements will be done before and after drinking 300 ml plain water or water to which glucose and/or ethyl butyrate will be added.
This is a prospective cohort study. The investigators will enroll 50 healthy volunteers. In a safe environment and after signing informed consent, each participant will consume a standardized alcoholic beverage. Using a Breathalyzer, the subjects BAT will be measured. If the subject's BAT is less than 0.10 +/- 0.005, the subject will drink another alcoholic beverage. This process will continue until the subject's BAT is 0.10 +/- 0.005. The number of alcoholic beverages the subj...
This study is examining the relationship between ingested arsenic and bladder cancer in two areas of California where a large percentage of the population was exposed to drinking water containing arsenic at low to moderate levels.
The purpose of this study was to assess drinking habits and patterns of alcohol consumption, smoking habits, use of illicit drugs and the prevalence of binge drinking and alcohol use disorders among Italian young students. Furthermore to investigate the correlation between binge drinking and alcohol use disorders.
Many problem gamblers are also problem drinkers,with lifetime prevalence in nationally representative samples ranging from 45% to 73%. Heavy drinking often occurs while problem gamblers are engaging in gambling activities, resulting in increased risky gambling behaviour. Further, co-occurring problem drinking negatively impacts on the treatment outcomes of problem gamblers. Thus, targeting problem drinking among problem gamblers may have the dual benefits of reducing both the p...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of topiramate in reducing drinking and heavy drinking frequency in problem drinkers. We hypothesize that at a dosage of up to 200mg/day, topiramate will be well tolerated in this patient population and that, compared to placebo treatment, topiramate will result in a greater reduction in the frequency of both drinking days and heavy drinking days.
This is an open-label Phase IIa pilot study of the tolerability and effects on binge drinking of bupropion and naltrexone for binge drinkers and assess cortical adaptation to tactile stimuli in subjects with binge drinking.
Social insecurity is a significant cost in human terms (health and societal), it defines evil and can be identified as difficulties accessing health and especially water. We chose to take stock of these populations defined by difficulties accessing water as precarious setting. Subjects homeless population fall into this by accident of life, a life "homeless" or migrant subjects often illegally having only transitory access (associative or charitable structures host) the condit...
Aim of the project is to validate and functionally characterize the combined impact of candidate genes and stress exposure on drinking in adolescents. Lifetime and recent stress experiences and drinking are recorded in a sample of healthy young adults who are genotyped for polymorphisms in candidate genes related to alcoholism. All participants undergo a standard laboratory psychosocial stress test. Our hypothesis is that specific genes can be identified which influence drinkin...
