Cephalic Phase in Anorexia Nervosa Bulimia Nervosa and Obese Binge Eaters

Food stimulation of gastric and pancreatic secretion is classically divided into cephalic, gastric and intestinal phases. Cephalic phase refers to a simultaneous activation of gastrointestinal motility, gastric acid and pancreatic enzyme secretion ,as well as, release of hormones from the endocrine pancreas which occurs through activation of vagal -efferents as ...

Phase N/A

Drug Transport in Patients With Anorexia Nervosa

The aim of this study is to investigate whether patients with anorexia nervosa have elevated plasma cholesterol levels and, if elevated plasma cholesterol levels influence drug transport by the ABC-transporter P-gp (P-glycoprotein, MDR 1/ABCB1). We will isolate peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and total RNA from the blood of patients ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Denosumab on Bone Mineral Density in Women With Anorexia Nervosa: A Pilot Study

This protocol is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial which aims to investigate the effect of denosumab on BMD in women with anorexia nervosa. The investigators hypothesize that 6 months of denosumab administration will result in an increase in bone mineral density, decrease in markers of bone resorption and improvement ...

Phase N/A

High-frequency vs. Low-frequency vs. Sham DMPFC-rTMS for Bulimia and Anorexia Nervosa

This trial will compare the efficacy and tolerability of 10 Hz vs. 1 Hz vs. sham repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation targeting the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex, delivered once daily over 30 days, in patients with a diagnosis of bulimia or anorexia nervosa binge-purge subtype. The trial will include structural and functional ...

Phase N/A

Correlation Study Between Heart Rate Variability and Anxiety in Anorexia Nervosa

The heart rate variability (HRV) is a measure of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). In the model of anorexia nervosa, ANS is disturbed with mostly a predominance of activation of the parasympathetic nervous system and a decrease of the sympathetic system. Various explanations of this these dysfunctions are proposed in ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Anorexia Nervosa on Peak Bone Mass

Given the increasing prevalence of AN, its profound consequences on bone health, and lack of optimal treatment interventions, these studies will provide critical data needed to identify optimal treatment strategies for this severe co-morbid disease using state- of- the- art endpoints of BMD, bone microarchitecture and strength. Although both low ...

Neural Basis of Meal Related Interoceptive Dysfunction in Anorexia Nervosa

The human brain has constant access to a multitude of complex signals, which it must simplify and organize in order to sustain the integrity of the organism. Many of these signals originate from outside of the body, such as lights, sounds, and smells, and much is known about how humans ...

Phase N/A

Maudsley Model of Anorexia Nervosa Treatment for Adolescents and Young Adults (MANTR-a)

Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a serious mental illness which leads untreated to aggravation of symptomatology and chronification. Among all mental illnesses, AN has the highest mortality rate, which is about 5.1 per 1000 people per year. High drop-out rates (up to 40%) or small treatment motivation constrains treatment success. Since ...

Phase N/A

Floatation-REST and Anorexia Nervosa

Flotation-REST (reduced environmental stimulation therapy) alters the balance of sensory input by systematically attenuating signals from the visual, auditory, thermal, tactile, vestibular, and proprioceptive systems. Previous research has shown that this heightens interoceptive awareness and reduces anxiety in clinically anxious populations. Anorexia nervosa (AN) is characterized by elevated anxiety, distorted ...
