  Purpose

Hospital undernutrition is a common health problem [1]. As a countermeasure, French hospitals have created a system of cross-function committees for feeding and nutrition called CLANs [Comité de Liaison pour l'alimentation et la nutrition] [2]. Potential actions for improving patient nutritional status include improving the characteristics of the food provided to increase both protein and calorie intake in at-risk patients that do not require enteral or parenteral nutrition. Looking at the various daily meals, the investigators considered that breakfast following the night fast would be the easiest meal to improve .

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • serum transthyretin (prealbumin) concentration [ Time Frame: changes between D0 to D7 between the 2 cohorts ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Improvement of serum transthyretin (prealbumin) concentration changes between D0 to D7


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • serum albumin concentration changes and length of stay [ Time Frame: Changes between the 2 cohorts ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    serum albumin concentration changes between D0 to D7, length of stay

Study Start Date: October 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Sham Comparator: Observational period
A first period of follow-up on the 400 patients was designed to survey and evaluate current nutrition administration policy
Dietary Supplement: Addition of protein (milky food in the breakfast)
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of additional protein (adding milky food to the breakfast) in order to deliver an optimized protein and energy intake of 15.75 g and 559 Kcal, respectively.
Experimental: Intervention period
The second period of follow-up on the 400 patients was designed to evaluate the impacts of adding milky food to the breakfast and of educating health care professionals on the early detection of undernutrition.

Detailed Description:

INAPEN protocol for impact of breakfast improvement on the nutritional status of hospitalized patients (INcidence de l'Amélioration du Petit-déjeuner sur l'Etat Nutritinonel des patients hospitalisés)

Sponsored by Meaux Hospital (Centre Hospitalier de Meaux),

Financing: unrestricted grant from the French speaking society for enteral and parenteral nutrition [SFNEP: Société Francophone de nutrition entérale et parentérale].

Information provided by Meaux Hospital Center (Centre Hospitalier de Meaux) as per the protocol submitted to the SFNEP in 2009.

Purpose

Hospital undernutrition is a common health problem [1]. As a countermeasure, French hospitals have created a system of cross-function committees for feeding and nutrition called CLANs [Comité de Liaison pour l'alimentation et la nutrition] [2]. Potential actions for improving patient nutritional status include improving the characteristics of the food provided to increase both protein and calorie intake in at-risk patients that do not require enteral or parenteral nutrition. Looking at the various daily meals, we considered that breakfast following the night fast would be the easiest meal to improve .

Condition Intervention Phase Patients scheduled for hospitalization of over 4 days Addition of protein (milky food in the breakfast) Current care

Study Type: Interventional study in current care

Study design: Sequential cohorts, Efficacy study

Official title: Inapen Impact of breakfast improvement on the nutritional status of hospitalized patients (Incidence de l'amélioration du petit-déjeuner sur l'état nutritionnel des patients hospitalisés).

Further study details:

Primary outcome: Improvement of serum transthyretin (prealbumin) concentration changes between D0 to D7 Secondary outcomes: serum albumin concentration changes between D0 to D7, length of stay

Expected total enrollment: 800 patients (400 patients x 2).

Study start date: October 2009 Expected inclusion completion date: June 2011

Rationale:

It has long been known that more than half of hospitalized patients suffer from undernutrition [3-5]), consequently increasing length of stay of 2 to 6 days and morbidity [3]. Early nutrition has been shown to reduce length of stay and hospitalization costs [3, 6], but is mostly based on early enteral or parenteral nutrition. Our purpose was to evaluate the impact of an improved oral nutrition in mildly-challenged hospitalized patients. It is widely accepted that breakfast should deliver 25% of energy intake and nutritional requirements (ref4). A preliminary study found that the total protein and energy impact of breakfast in Meaux hospital was 4 g protein and 346 Kcal of total energy intake, whereas French institutional catering recommendations on nutrition (Groupe d'Etude des Marchés de Restauration Collective et de Nutrition, GEM RCN) stipulate 7.75 g of protein and 403 Kcal of energy.

The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of additional protein (adding milky food to the breakfast) in order to deliver an optimized protein and energy intake of 15.75 g and 559 Kcal, respectively.

A first period of follow-up on the 400 patients was designed to survey and evaluate current nutrition administration policy. The second period of follow-up on the 400 patients was designed to evaluate the impacts of adding milky food to the breakfast and of educating health care professionals on the early detection of undernutrition. Efficacy will be evaluated based on increase in transthyretin concentrations, with special focus given to length of stay as a secondary end-point.
