Souvenaid aims to improve synapse formation and function. An earlier study in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) showed that Souvenaid increased memory performance after 12 weeks in drug-naïve patients with mild AD. The Souvenir II study was a 24-week, randomized, controlled, double-blind, parallel-group, multi-country trial to confirm and extend(More)
BACKGROUND The medical food Souvenaid, containing the specific nutrient combination Fortasyn Connect, is designed to improve synapse formation and function in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Two double-blind randomized controlled trials (RCT) with Souvenaid of 12 and 24 week duration (Souvenir I and Souvenir II) showed that memory performance was(More)
Tumor related contralateral motor deficits complicate preoperative functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). In plegic patients the localization of the sensorimotor cortex is often impossible. In this context we developed a clinical fMRI protocol dedicated to patients with motor deficits using the unaffected ipsilateral hand. Based on the hypothesis(More)
Souvenaid® containing Fortasyn® Connect is a medical food designed to support synapse synthesis in persons with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Fortasyn Connect includes precursors (uridine monophosphate; choline; phospholipids; eicosapentaenoic acid; docosahexaenoic acid) and cofactors (vitamins E, C, B12, and B6; folic acid; selenium) for the formation of(More)
AIMS The aim of this survey was to gain an overview of enteral nutrition practices and procedures of European adult intensive care units and to describe current trends. BACKGROUND Currently, little is known about nutritional practices in European intensive care units and whether they match existing guidelines. DESIGN Survey. METHODS A 51-item(More)
Fish are widely used in numerous fields of basic and applied research. Currently, they are the third laboratory animal group in numbers, and will become increasingly important. Common carp is a major species in both aquaculture and research. Inbred strains of carp by gynogenetic (only female inheritance) and androgenetic (only male inheritance) reproduction(More)
Antibody production to dinitrophenyl-keyhole limpet haemocyanin (DNP-KLH) served as the immune parameter to divergently select carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) to produce high- and low-responder F1 hybrid lines. Antibody production to trinitrophenyl-lipopolysaccharide (TNP-LPS) and to DNP-KLH were similar in magnitude. By contrast, some high-responder lines were(More)
Stimulation and inhibition of gonadal development by intersexual contact was studied in pubertal African catfish, Clarias gariepinus. The effect of a possible interaction was studied by evaluation after a 98-day experimental period of gonadal development in combinations of intact and anosmic males and females. In addition, separate groups of males and(More)
Background: A promising strategy to help older adults preserve or build muscle mass is to optimize muscle anabolism through providing an adequate amount of high-quality protein at each meal.Objective: This "proof of principle" study investigated the acute effect of supplementing breakfast with a vitamin D and leucine-enriched whey protein medical nutrition(More)
