ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03121326
Recruitment Status : Unknown
Verified March 2017 by Chang Gung Memorial Hospital. Recruitment status was: Recruiting
With the rapid growth of the global elderly population, the studies of the biomarkers of the sarcopenia and aging are under investigation in different ways. The investigators use Metabolomics to explore the biomarkers of the sarcopenia and aging of the senior adults.
Condition or disease
Diagnostic Test: blood and urine sampling
Metabolomics is the emerging platform technology to address the complexity of a living system. In translational research, metabolomics approaches may enable the detection of multiple disease risk factors and interactions, disease progression, and response of patients to a particular therapy with or without side effects. Metabolomics may provide comprehensive information and improve diagnosis and prognosis which are particularly promising in human complex degenerative diseases. The investigators use Metabolomics to explore the biomarkers of the sarcopenia and aging of the senior adults.
