Drugs and Biologics

Drugs and Important Biological Agents (IBA) related to Body Weight:
1. Insulin (Novolin)FDA Link
2. Glucose (Dextrose)FDA LinkGeneric
3. Blood Glucose (Blood Sugar)IBA
10/01/1995 - "Nineteen of these products were effective, when administered at an oral dose of 100 mg/kg body weight in inducing a marked reduction in blood glucose level."
05/01/2012 - "This study has shown that a 10-week intervention to promote physical activity was effective in significantly decreasing the population's BP by 1.56 / 0.74 mm Hg, fasting blood sugar levels by 2.82 mg%, body weight by 0.17 kg, and BMI by 0.06 kg / m(2). "
07/22/1994 - "In this study feeding diabetic rats and rabbits with 0.39 g/kg body weight of the aqueous extract of the aerial parts of the plant for 2-4 weeks shows a significant reduction in blood glucose level, prevents elevation of glycosylated haemoglobin level and possesses a hypoliposis effect, in addition to the protection against body weight loss of diabetic animals."
04/01/2013 - "Whereas body weight, % fat, WHR, SBP, DBP and blood glucose were significant decreased, muscle weight and pulse wave velocity were significant increased after complex exercise rehabilitation programs Both Eastern and Western complex exercise rehabilitation programs showed positive effects on the body of the II period of mature aged women with metabolic syndrome, and if various exercise programs are conducted, it will be more effective in improving II period of mature aged women's metabolic syndrome afterwards. "
03/01/2010 - "It was shown that treatment with the high-fiber diet (46-55 g/day) in combination with mineral water markedly accelerated normalization of blood glucose level and lipid metabolism, reduction of body weight and arterial pressure; moreover, it improved general efficiency of therapy."

4. CholesterolIBA
12/19/2003 - "In mature mice between 13 and 26 weeks of age, there was a marked decrease in these parameters including a reduction in the relative size of the CNS to 1.7% of body weight, a decrease in the rate of sterol accretion to 0.012 mg/day, and a reduction in the rate of cholesterol synthesis to 0.035 mg/day. "
02/01/2003 - "Finally, statin therapy and better compliance to dietary recommendations resulted in the normalisation of cholesterol level, a marked decrease in triglyceride concentration and a loss of 5 kg of body weight. "
01/01/2001 - "After the six months of the program: 1) Total cholesterol levels had decreased significantly, along with both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, body weight and BMI; 2) Major nutrient intake, density of nutrients and eating behavior were improved, with decrease in daily salt intake, and increase significant in daily energy expenditure; 3) Stress scores by the Nichidai stress check were decreased significantly, subjects with higher stress scores at the beginning of programs having marked change, and neurotic tendencies were decreased in CMI categories II-IV. These results suggest that, in order to maintain and/or improve the QOL of climacteric women, good dietary habits and physical activities, such as walking, and psychological support are essential. "
01/01/2009 - "Black participants with A1(+) genotypes had significantly greater mean body weight (11.2 kg heavier, P = 0.05) and greater intake of fat (P = 0.002), saturated fat (P = 0.01), and cholesterol (P = 0.02) compared with A2A2 (A1(-)) individuals; dietary changes during the study did not favor one genotype group. "
08/01/2013 - "The mean FPG, PPPG, SBP, total cholesterol and QoL also improved significantly (all p < 0.001), while the mean body weight increased by 0.9 ± 3.9 kg (p < 0.001). "

5. CreatinineIBA
11/01/2011 - "The most popular recommended formulas are the simple Cockcroft-Gault equation, which is inaccurate and biased, as it calculates clearance of creatinine in proportion to body weight, and the MDRD equation, which is more accurate, but systematically underestimates normal and high GFR, being established by a statistical analysis of results from renal-insufficient patients. "
05/01/1987 - "Measured CLcr values ranged from 29.8 to 197 mL/min in group 1 and from 2.8 to 118 mL/min in group 2. Ranges of SCr values were 0.7-1.5 mg/dL (mean, 1.1) in group 1 and 1.6-7.1 mg/dL (mean, 2.8) in group 2; the formula of Cockcroft and Gault, which uses age, body weight, and SCr, had the highest correlation and the greatest accuracy in group 1, whereas the formula of Jelliffe, which uses body surface area and SCr, had the highest correlation and the greatest accuracy in group 2. Estimation of creatinine clearance can be improved by identification and use of the formula that is best suited to a specific patient population."
03/31/1998 - "The loss of body weight was accompanied by a marked decrease in plasma creatinine. "
07/01/2004 - "The suppression of body weight gain and reduction of creatinine clearance were significantly greater with the 20:00h than 08:00h treatment. "
06/01/2004 - "Patients with creatinine less than 1 mg/dl had significantly greater increase in body weight (at 3 and 6 months) as well as crown-heel length (at 3 and 9 months), respectively (p <0.05). "

7. Triglycerides (Triacylglycerol)IBA
8. Urea (Carbamide)FDA LinkGeneric
9. NitrogenIBA
03/01/1993 - "Feeding of diet containing insect infested sorghum grains (50 and 75%) resulted in marked decrease in food intake, protein intake, gain in body weight, food efficiency ratio, protein efficiency ratio, nitrogen consumption, nitrogen absorption, biological value, net protein utilization, dry matter digestibility, net protein retention and protein retention efficiency. "
07/01/1988 - "Treatment of rats with recombinant human TNF initially causes a marked decrease in food intake, a loss of body weight, and a negative nitrogen balance. "
02/01/2009 - "The data for dry weight, body mass index, and normalized protein nitrogen appearance, which represent nutritional status, showed a significant improvement while still maintaining a satisfactory albumin level. "
03/01/2005 - "There was a significant interaction between energy level and Dex such that the increase in body catabolism due to 50%E from CHO or FAT was reduced by approximately 50%, although the amount of body weight and nitrogen lost over 7 d was significantly greater with 50%E than with AE. AE+Dex induced a 60% increase in liver mass, whereas 50%E+Dex reduced the increase to 26%. "
12/01/1983 - "This method of nutritional intake allowed us to: maintain body weight at pre-operative values; obtain a positive nitrogen balance on average the sixth postoperative day; reduce the volume of parenteral support, early suspension and a significant reduction in complications connected with this method."
