‘The medical literature. What’s really wrong and how can we fix it’

A paradoxical feature of the current medical literature is the increasing number of  publications criticizing that literature as unreliable, not reproducible or simply wrong. Medical nutrition may be most problematical, and the status of low-carbohydrate and ketogenic diets, the extreme example. I will use a single example, a paper by Seidelmann and coworkers [Lancet Public Health 2018; 3: e419–428], to illustrate the breach of scientific standards and the need for greater transparency and for an improved system of peer review.

Beyond traditional scientific principles, I will invoke Bradford Hill’s criteria and discuss the concept of evidence-based-medicine by analogy with evidence in courts of law. (Who decides admissibility?) Seidelmann, et al. concluded that low-carbohydrate diets were associated with an increased risk of all-cause mortality. The conclusion is surprising on the face of it. While often criticized, such diets are widely used with no documented harm, and have continued to demonstrate success in clinical and experimental studies. The strongest of these contradictory studies are not cited.

  • Learning point: By analogy with a court of law, exculpatory evidence must be cited. The best evidence. Courts have ruled, for example, that the police cannot look the other way.

Seidelmann, et al. recognize low-carbohydrate diets as a specific intervention but no diets were studied. The paper is a retrospective analysis of nutrient intake in study of heart disease. No researcher in the field would say that the paper had received peer review.

  • Learning point: Editors must recognize controversial subjects and appoint reviewers from both sides of the controversy. To fail to do so constitutes de facto bias.

Whatever the appropriateness of the study, the hazard ratios (analogous to relative risk) are distinctly small, typically 1.2, suggesting little reliability.

  • Learning point: Bradford Hill’s criteria for when an associational study supports causation must be addressed and, in particular, “first on my list,” the size of the association.

These and other points will be discussed and solutions proposed.

‘LPS and Autoimmunity; A Meaningful and Modifiable Marker’

Our understanding of immunotolerance and autoimmunity, through gut based exposure, has grown exponentially over the years. This broadened understanding of gut based immune priming elucidates new targets for immune regulation in autoimmune conditions. As our understanding of the microbiome increases, we can understand the mechanisms that skew and support immune tolerance and T-cell differentiation. A key regulator in many autoimmune conditions includes the interaction between LipoPolySaccharide (LPS), a bacterial endotoxin, and Treg cells. Although LPS is ubiquitous to Gram-negative bacteria, and created by several commensal bacterial Genera, immune regulation to LPS also involves the interaction of Gram-positive flora such as Bifidobacter. These interactions will determine programming of naïve T-cells and influence the balance of the immune response.  LPS, even more so than the bacteria that make it, is uniquely able to trigger an autoimmune process by many mechanisms. LPS is associated with Toll-Like Receptor (TLR) differentiation that is pathognomonic for certain autoimmune conditions, demonstrating its pivotal relationship. LPS is also able to decrease Treg function, a hallmark of autoimmunity, thus allowing immune function to proceed stimulated and unregulated. An understanding of LPS and its activity in immune function increases our clinical understanding and management of autoimmune conditions such as Rheumatoid arthritis, and Crohn’s Disease, to name a few.

Learning Objectives:

1)      We will examine the role of LPS and cell signaling in determining TLR expression.
2)      Understand the relationship between LPS and Treg cells as they relate to autoimmunity.
3)      Examine clinical interventions that disrupt LPS interaction with Treg cells and improving their function.

‘COVID-19 and Alzheimer’s: the surprising parallels and critical differences in 2 pandemics’

The COVID-19 pandemic has killed over 600,000 people in the US; for perspective, Alzheimer’s will kill over 70 times that many of the currently living Americans. There are key parallels in these 2 pandemics, such as the immune dysregulation and many risk factors. However, there are also critical differences, such as the lack of a vaccine for Alzheimer’s and the lack of agreement on etiology. Prof. Dale Bredesen, author of The End of Alzheimer’s, will discuss how each of these 2 pandemics offers us insight into the other.

‘Medicinal mushrooms as powerful immunomodulators in clinical practice’

Immunomodulation encompasses all therapeutic interventions aimed at modifying the immune response. Medicinal mushrooms have been valued as food and health supplements for centuries. Thanks to the identification of their bioactive molecules, we find that many of them show a strong immunomodulatory activity, including a prebiotic effect via gut microbiota regulation. Scientific evidence supports the use of medicinal mushrooms as powerful immunomodulators that can be safely used as adjuvants in clinical practice for effectively helping patients with immunomodulatory imbalances.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand how medicinal mushrooms can help in immunomodulatory alterations: prevention of infection in immunodeficiency states, fighting established infections, as anticancer agents, suppression of allergies and keeping autoimmune diseases under control
  • Learn the main bioactive compounds of medicinal mushrooms with immunomodulatory activities
  • Discover the current status of clinical and preclinical studies on the immunoregulatory effects of medicinal mushrooms

‘Effects of a Diet & Lifestyle Intervention on Biological Aging First-of-its-kind human clinical trial (pilot study)’

8-week intervention takes 3 years off biological age: IFM’s Kara Fitzgerald talks us through her brand-new study showing the power of a methylation-angled lifestyle and diet intervention.

The groundbreaking clinical trial shows that biological age – as measured by the DNAmAge epigenetic clock – can be reduced significantly by following a diet and lifestyle program that aims to balance DNA methylation:

Manipulations to slow biological aging and extend healthspan are of interest given the societal and healthcare costs of our aging population. Herein we report on a randomized controlled clinical trial conducted among 43 healthy adult males between the ages of 50-72. The 8-week treatment program included diet, sleep, exercise and relaxation guidance, and supplemental probiotics and phytonutrients. The control group received no intervention. Genome-wide DNA methylation analysis was conducted on saliva samples using the Illumina Methylation Epic Array and DNAmAge was calculated using the online Horvath DNAmAge clock (2013). The diet and lifestyle treatment was associated with a 3.23 years decrease in DNAmAge compared with controls (p=0.018). DNAmAge of those in the treatment group decreased by an average 1.96 years by the end of the program compared to the same individuals at the beginning with a strong trend towards significance (p=0.066). Changes in blood biomarkers were significant for mean serum 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (+15%, p=0.004) and mean triglycerides (-25%, p=0.009). To our knowledge, this is the first randomized controlled study to suggest that specific diet and lifestyle interventions may reverse Horvath DNAmAge (2013) epigenetic aging in healthy adult males. Larger-scale and longer duration clinical trials are needed to confirm these findings, as well as investigation in other human populations.

'Managing the symptoms of Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy in the cancer patient (CIPN)' Daniel Baden ND

Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a common and disabling side effect of chemotherapy for which there is no established effective treatment. The development of CIPN may require chemotherapy dose reduction or cessation, which can increase cancer-related morbidity and mortality. It has a complex, poorly understood pathophysiology, with changes in the structure and function of peripheral motor, sensory and autonomic neurons causing pain, sensory changes and weakness.  CIPN occurs in as many as 68% of patients within the first month of chemotherapy treatment and can last many years after discontinuation of treatment and reduce the quality of life of cancer survivors. Therefore, the preventive and therapeutic strategies for CINP are an urgent need.

Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is an endogenous fatty acid amide that is emerging as a promising treatment for CIPN. PEA has anti-inflammatory, antinociceptive, and neuroprotective properties and is synthesised on demand in response to inflammatory and pain-related processes. Clinical research reveals that treatment with exogenous PEA is effective and safe in various neuropathological conditions, including diabetic neuropathy, nerve compression syndromes and chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain. Given the prevalence of cancer and, subsequently, CIPN is increasing, with more and more survivors left with long-term functional disability and reduced quality of life, finding neuroprotective interventions such as PEA is of utmost importance.
