Fortimel Medical Research Studies

Up-to-date List of Fortimel Medical Research Studies

What Research is Being Done?

A clinical study involves research using human volunteers (also called participants) that is intended to add to medical knowledge. There are two main types of clinical studies: clinical trials (also called interventional studies) and observational studies. Following list includes both interventional and observational studies.

Latest Fortimel Medical Research Studies

Rank Status Study
1 Not yet recruiting Oral Nutritional Supplementation in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Patients
Condition: Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Intervention: Dietary Supplement: Oral nutritional supplementation
Outcome Measures: Change in the ALSFRS-R slope between T0 and T0+6 months;   Combined assessment of Function and Survival (CAFS);   Body Mass Index and of Fat Mass.
2 Unknown  Impact of Early and Active Nutritional and Dietary Management grade3 or More Toxicities Induced by Chemotherapy and Targeted Therapies Administered to Patients as First Intention for Non Surgical Metastatic Colorectal Cancer
Condition: Metastatic Colorectal Cancer
Intervention: Other: Early and active nutritional support.
Outcome Measures: Toxicities frequently associated with chemotherapy;   Nutritional status of patients;   Appetite measures;   Quality of life;   Number of occurrences of grades 1 and 2 toxicities;   The number of hospital days;   Overall survival
3 Not yet recruiting Multimodal Approach of Undernutrition in Chronic Heart Failure
Condition: Chronic Heart Failure
Intervention: Other: Physical rehabilitation (exercise).
Outcome Measures: ventilatory workload VO2;   Heart function (to measure left ventricle fraction);   Heart function (clinical exam);   Heart function (plasma NT pro-Brain Natriuretic Peptide);   Plasma NT pro-Brain Natriuretic Peptide (Nt ProBNP);   Maximal cycle exercise capacity test coupled with respiratory exchanges: VO2 peak, peak workload on bicycle, endurance time between peak and ventilatory workload;   Quadriceps strength;   6-min walking test;   Nutritional status (weight, height, body mass index);   Quality of life with specific questionnaires;   Hospital stays (number of days);   Body composition (weight, height, body mass index)

These studies may lead to new treatments and are adding insight into Fortimel etiology and treatment.

A major focus of Fortimel research is the development of new drugs and other treatment options. Studies seek to identify new drugs to treat various related disorders and to find safer, more effective doses for medications already being used. Other research is aimed at identifying receptors or drug targets.
