NIHR CLAHRC Oxford supported Researchers: Replacing all regular meals with a low calorie diet of soups, shakes and bars, together with behavioural support, is cost-effective as a routine treatment for obesity
Research led by Dr Clare Taylor and CLAHRC Oxford Director Professor Richard Hobbs finds that survival after a diagnosis of heart failure in the United Kingdom has shown only modest improvement in the 21st century and lags behind other serious conditions, such as cancer, in a large study published by The BMJ today.
New research supported by CLAHRC Oxford and led by CLAHRC Oxford Theme 2 lead, Professor Sallie Lamb, suggests that while exercise can improve the fitness of people with dementia it does not slow their cognitive decline.
CLAHRC Oxford supported researchers were recently invited to present evidence to the ‘suicide and self-harm’ All-party Parliamentary Group (APPG). The group were surprised and impressed by the evidence presented and intend to forward it to the Minister for Health and Social Care, Jeremy Hunt.
