|Brief Title||Body Weight Regulation in Patients With Narcolepsy|
|Official Title||The Role of the Orexin System in Body Weight Regulation: Patients With Narcolepsy|
This study will measure energy expenditure (the rate at which the body burns calories), physical activity and caloric intake in people with narcolepsy to learn more about how the risk of becoming overweight or diabetic may be affected.
Healthy control subjects and people with narcolepsy between 18 and 55 years of age may be eligible for this study. Participants are withdrawn from their narcolepsy medication and undergo the following tests and procedures over 5 weeks before resuming medications.
BACKGROUND: Several cross-sectional studies have suggested that subjects with narcolepsy have increased body mass index (BMI) and insulin resistance. These subjects exhibit a decrease in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) orexin levels, which has been causally linked to the clinical manifestations of this disease. Orexins are peptides expressed in a brain region, the lateral hypothalamic area, which stimulate appetite and modulate sleep. Low CSF orexin levels provoke narcolepsy-like behavior, such as excessive daytime sleepiness and a sudden loss of muscle tone known as cataplexy.
OBJECTIVES: The primary objective of this study is to determine whether subjects with narcolepsy have lower energy expenditure compared to healthy matched controls. In addition, we will assess food intake, physical activity, and other relevant parameters.
STUDY POPULATION: 18 to 55 year old men and premenopausal women with narcolepsy and healthy matched controls
DESIGN: This is a cross-sectional, case-controlled study of subjects with narcolepsy matched on a one-to-one basis with healthy, non-narcoleptic control subjects.
OUTCOME PARAMETERS: We will assess metabolic, hormonal, and energy expenditure parameters in subjects with narcolepsy. Outcomes: energy expenditure by various methods (indirect calorimetry, metabolic chamber, doubly-labeled water method); leptin circadian levels (frequent 24h sampling); physical activity, characterization of the main endocrine axes, and other relevant parameters.
