The impact of estrogen status on the biological function of brown adipose tissue in women measured using quantitative PET/CT

The physiological relevance of brown adipose tissue in humans is largely unknown. We have shown that suppressing ovarian function in premenopausal women reduces resting energy expenditure (REE), and this is prevented by adding back estradiol (E2). Our preliminary data suggest that this may be due, in part, to reduced brown adipose tissue (BAT) activity. However, whether E2 status affects BAT activity in women has not been studied. In this research, we will study 1) the contribution of BAT to REE under basal (room temperature) and stimulated conditions (mild cold-exposure); and 2) whether these responses are modulated by E2 status.

Myeloid to Adipocyte Transdifferentiation in Human cells

If you join the study, you will complete the following research procedures over the course of 2 study visits: Informed consent, physical exam and medical history, body composition test, blood draw and fat biopsy.

This research study plans to learn more about where the fat cells in your body come from. Understanding the origin of fat cells is important because it may help to determine the health of fat cells and why fat that is stored in some places of your body is more "unhealthy" than other fat.

Cardiovascular Mechanisms of Exercise Intolerance in Diabetes and the Role of Sex

This study will define the relationship of cardiac, vascular function and skeletal muscle blood flow (individually and together) to cardiovascular exercise capacity in in men and women with and without type 2 diabetes (T2DM). Identification of differences in the effects of exercise training on the integrated cardiovascular system and metabolism in men and women with and without T2DM will reveal specific adaptive responses to exercise. This study will evaluate & compare exercise function in a total of 60 subjects from the Denver area (30 people with T2DM and 30 overweight control subjects).

Tissue-specific effects of insufficient sleep

The proposed project is a within-subject consecutive design examining 14 healthy individuals after baseline and after 4 nights of insufficient sleep. Following 7 days of at-home habitual sleep of 9 hours/night and a 3-day lead-in energy balanced diet, participants will be admitted for a 6-night inpatient stay at the UC Denver. Sleep schedules will be verified via sleep logs, time-stamped voice-recorder of bed and wake times, and wrist actigraphy recordings. On the morning after the 1st night in the lab, subjects will undergo including saliva sampling, endothelial function testing, muscle biopsy, fat biopsy, hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp.

Mitochondrial targeted antioxidant supplementation and diastolic function in healthy men and women

As we get older, our cardiovascular health worsens. This can lead to high blood pressure and heart disease. In this study we want to find out what causes cardiovascular health to worsen in older men and women. Also we want to find out what happens to the cardiovascular system when we take a dietary antioxidant supplement for a short period of time. Specifically, we want to see if the antioxidant supplement will improve cardiovascular health in older men and women because of damage to mitochondria. Mitochondria are the main power supply of the cells in our body. The results from this study will help to understand whether improvements in mitochondrial function will also improve cardiovascular health in older men and women.

EA1151: Tomosynthesis Mammographic Imaging Screening Trial (TMIST)

Participants in this trial will be randomized to receive either 2D or 3D mammograms for the first 5 years of the research study, either ever year or every other year depending on personal risk factors. Information will be collected on breast cancer status for 8 years in total.

To compare the proportions of participants in the Tomosynthesis (TM) and Digital Mammography (DM) study arms experiencing the occurrence of an advanced breast cancer at any time during a period of 4.5 years from randomization, including the period of active screening and a period of clinical follow-up after the last screen (T4). To assess the potential effect of age, menopausal and hormonal status, breast density, and family cancer history on the primary endpoint difference between the two arms.

Precision Approach to PPI Therapy in Gastroesophageal reflux disease

Over the past 25 years, RALS has been increasingly, and often incorrectly, diagnosed and has emerged as a point of controversy and confusion. Despite the limitations of current diagnostic tests and therapeutic strategies, recent advances in gastoresophageal reflux disease offer tremendous potential for RALS diagnosis and treatment. Newer diagnostic tools are able to assess physiologic properties of RALS. Thus, this study will address three crucial gaps impacting the clinical approach to RALS: 1) Paucity of diagnostic tests that predict clinically relevant outcomes, 2) undefined clinical role of UES augmentation, and 3) deficiency or cost-effective and personalized approaches.

The Associations between EIT and Clinical Measures during Standard of Care Procedures in Patients with Respiratory Disease: A Preliminary Study

Primary outcome: EIT imaging maps that provide regional information regarding ventilation and perfusion of the lung. These images will be analyzed both visually for qualitative abnormalities and through quantitative pixel analysis that can provide information regarding lung volume, blood volume, and changes in either based on respiratory cycle, cardiac cycle, or intervention. Areas of low ventilation (atelectasis and consolidation) will be identified. Secondary outcomes: Regional conductivity changes due to ventilation Waveform for a mesh element Regional conductivity changes due to perfusion Regional pulsatile perfusion imaging at the end of systole Power waveform (computed as the inner product of measured voltages and applied currents)

CU Faces of Hope-Genetics of Craniofacial and Dental Development Research Study

This study plans to collect samples to create a database of patients with various syndromes that affect the way bones of the face are formed, termed “craniofacial”. These samples will support a new research program, named CU Faces of Hope, which involves a team of researchers and doctors who will work together toward a goal of better understanding facial development and gain knowledge about your specific syndrome. Samples, such as blood, DNA, and cells, will be stored for future approved research. The reason for collecting both health information and blood/tooth samples from the same person is to look at relationships between physical symptoms, behavior, genes, and parts of the blood. We are also asking parents and siblings of people with these various craniofacial associated syndromes to join the study. Having information available from family members can help researchers look at differences between people who have a syndrome and those who do not.
