Live Online Seminar - Standardised nutrition in early phase clinical research

Why should you watch the online seminar?

Profil’s metabolic ward is specialized in meeting nutritional requirements in clinical research. Our metabolic kitchen allows the investigation and control of the impact of nutritional conditions in clinical trials. To date, Profil has performed more than 80 studies with standardized nutritional regimens helping to match nutritional plans to the objectives of any trial, for example when mixed meal tolerance tests or individual diets are needed.

What is the online seminar about?

Obesity and other chronic diseases which are related to excess body weight like diabetes are causing a global health hazard, demonstrating the urgent need for the development of blood glucose and weight lowering compounds. So-called lifestyle changes - comprising diet and an increase in physical activity - are still the first line approach, but the past years have seen approval of quite a few novel anti-obesity and anti-diabetic drugs with beneficial effects on body weight. The majority of these influence hypothalamic appetite pathways via dopaminergic or serotoninergic signalling or mimic endogenous satiety signals using long-lasting forms of peripheral appetite suppressing hormones.
An improved understanding of the pathways regulating energy balance, and better-designed trials give greater confidence that recently approved agents will be both efficacious and safe. Therefore, understanding the energy equation in terms of energy intake and energy expenditure is imperative for any given weight loss intervention.
