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.

Nicotinic agonist effects on BMI and neuronal response in overweight/obese adults

This study plans to learn more about the effects of an investigational new drug (DMXB-A) and its effects on obesity. The study drug has similar effects to nicotine. Since nicotine has been found to effect appetite, we are interested in studying the effects of the study drug, which has similarities to nicotine, on how your brain responds to such things as pictures of food. This study drug has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and is considered experimental.

This research study plans to examine the effects of an investigational new drug on neuronal, physiological, and behavioral mechanisms of obesity in the general population.

Comparison of Weight Loss Induced by Intermittent Fasting Versus Daily Caloric Restriction in Individuals with Obesity: A 1-Year Randomized Trial

This study plans to learn more about the best eating patterns for weight loss. Specifically, this study is being done to try to determine if intermittent fasting is as effective for weight loss as daily calorie restriction. In this study, we will be evaluating how your body weight, body composition, laboratory values, energy expenditure, and eating and exercise behaviors change during a 12-month weight loss program. We will also evaluate how your biology, life experiences, thought processes, behaviors, and environment predict how much weight you lose and how well you follow the diet and exercise recommendations in the study.

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.

Obalon? Balloon System, The Post Approval Study

The aim of the study is to show that the device demonstrates continued performance and safety in a commercial setting. Efficacy of the Six Month Obalon Balloon System will be evaluated utilizing the standard weight loss metrics. Patients will be followed for 12 months (6- months Device therapy and 6-months post-removal). The primary objective is to collect additional safety data with the Obalon Balloon System and confirm the existing safety profile results gathered in PTL-1100-0013, the Obalon Pivotal Study.
