Further study details as provided by SB Istanbul Education and Research Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • blood boron level [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    blood boron levels will be measured cantitatively

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • body mass index [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    body mass index levels will be evaluated with blood boron levels

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
blood serum analyses

Estimated Enrollment: 80
Study Start Date: August 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
body mass index: 19-24
body mass index: 25-29
body mass index: 30-40
modbid obes
body mass index: over 40

Detailed Description:
In the results of our experimental study on mices we revealed that low dose oral boric acid intake cause seriously body mas reducing. Although blood and urine analyses support high glucose, lipid and middle protein catabolisms, but the mechanism was unclear. There are some diseases according to blood elementary deficiencies, like hypothyroidi in hypoiyodinemia, hiperparathyroidi in hypocalcemia, etc. We hypothesised that hypoboronemia may be corralated to body mass index level.
