  • The fat brain
    • Authors: Montesinos; Jorge; Guardia-Laguarta, Cristina; Area-Gomez, Estela
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review The purpose of this brief review is to gain an understanding on the multiple roles that lipids exert on the brain, and to highlight new ideas in the impact of lipid homeostasis in the regulation of synaptic transmission.Recent findings Recent data underline the crucial function of lipid homeostasis in maintaining neuronal function and synaptic plasticity. Moreover, new advances in analytical approaches to study lipid classes and species is opening a new door to understand and monitor how alterations in lipid pathways could shed new light into the pathogenesis of neurodegeneration.Summary Lipids are one of the most essential elements of the brain. However, our understanding of the role of lipids within the central nervous system is still largely unknown. Identifying the molecular mechanism (s) by which lipids can regulate neuronal transmission represents the next frontier in neuroscience, and a new challenge in our understanding of the brain and the mechanism(s) behind neurological disorders.

  • Pro-resolving lipid mediators in sepsis and critical illness
    • Authors: Padovan; Michele G.; Norling, Lucy V.
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Sepsis is a life-threatening condition caused by a dysregulated host response to infection that remains a huge clinical challenge. Recent evidence indicates that bioactive lipid mediators derived from polyunsaturated fatty acids termed specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs) are promising new candidates for treating critical illness.Recent findings We highlight herein the protective actions of SPMs in experimental sepsis, cardiac dysfunction, and also lung and cerebral injury, and discuss their mechanisms of action. We also emphasize that failed resolution responses and dysregulated SPM pathways may provide an explanation for the ongoing chronic inflammation in many diseases including chronic heart failure.Summary Importantly, monitoring plasma SPM profiles can predict patient outcomes in sepsis indicating their utility as new early biomarkers that may help stratify patients upon ICU admission.

  • N − 3 fatty acids during chemotherapy: toward a higher level of
           evidence for clinical application
    • Authors: Klassen; Pamela; Cervantes, Mayra; Mazurak, Vera C.
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Recommendations for intakes of n − 3 fatty acids (FAs) in patients who are receiving chemotherapy for cancer are based on weak evidence. This review highlights themes within the emergent literature to suggest improvements in the design of studies that provide n − 3 FA supplements concurrent with cytotoxic agents.Recent findings Following earlier research in animal models and human pilot studies, recent human studies have evaluated the effect of providing n − 3 FAs during delivery of single agent and multiagent chemotherapy regimens for breast and gastro-intestinal cancers. Regimens were based on platinum compounds, fluoropyrimidines or both, and a variety of additional agents. Tumor location and stage, supplement dose and duration, and endpoints were dissimilar across studies. Overall, the recent research continues to support the safety and tolerability of n − 3 FA supplementation with chemotherapy and provides additional evidence, albeit weak, for enhanced tumor response, maintenance of weight and muscle, and reduction in inflammation and toxicities in the host across multiple cancer sites and chemotherapy regimens.Summary The barriers to implementation in practice remain small study sizes, variations in supplement dosage and methodology, and differences in primary endpoints. Randomized, blinded trials with a justifiable sample size, adequate doses, monitored compliance and measures of clinically important endpoints are required to move these findings to a higher level of evidence for implementation into clinical practice.

  • Evaluating the TARGET and EAT-ICU trials: how important are accurate
           caloric goals' Point-counterpoint: the pro position
    • Authors: Singer; Pierre; Pichard, Claude; Rattanachaiwong, Sornwichate
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Controversies about the adequate amount of energy to deliver to critically ill patients are still going on, trying to find if hypocaloric or normocaloric regimen is beneficial in this population. Our purpose is to review recent publications using or not indirect calorimetry.Recent findings Numerous studies have compared hypocaloric to normocaloric regimen using predictive equations. However, these equations have been demonstrated to be inaccurate in most of the cases. Some recent PRCT using indirect calorimetry are finding some advantages to isocalorie regimens, but others not. Timing of the nutrition respecting or not the early substrate endogenous production, use of an adequate amount of protein, respect of the daily variability of needs may explain the divergent results observed.Summary Indirect calorimetry should be used to define the energy expenditure of the patient and to determine its requirements. More studies comparing isocalorie to hypocalorie regimens with fixed protein intake are necessary to confirm the observational and some of the PRCT-positive studies.

  • Metabolic aspects of muscle wasting during critical illness
    • Authors: van Gassel; Robert J.J.; Baggerman, Michelle R.; van de Poll, Marcel C.G.
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Skeletal muscle wasting during critical illness is the result of disturbed metabolism. No proven effective interventions targeting skeletal muscle mass and function during critical illness currently exist. This review summarizes recent advances regarding the complexity of metabolic factors involved and the challenge of establishing the clinical effects of metabolic interventions targeting the muscle.Recent findings Although the catabolic state is limited to the acute phase of critical illness, its subsequent impact on muscle mass and function persists long after ICU discharge. Immobilization, inflammation and disturbed muscle energy and nutrient metabolism are key drivers of muscle protein loss. Current research focuses on the effects of enhanced protein provision, specific substrate delivery and physical exercise. Whilst some interventions have been successful at improving muscle mass, these effects do not always carry over into muscle function or strength.Summary Increased understanding of metabolic derangements during critical illness provides new potential targets for treatment. The potential of dietary protein to attenuate the muscle protein catabolic state has yet to be established in clinical trials. Basic research should focus on ways to further improve the anabolic potential of nutrition by unravelling mechanisms that regulate anabolic and catabolic pathways and energy metabolism.

  • Do micronutrient deficiencies contribute to mitochondrial failure in
           critical illness'
    • Authors: Berger; Mette M.
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Mitochondrial dysfunction seems to be the common denominator of several critical care conditions and particularly of sepsis. Faced with relative failure, and limited progress of sepsis therapies aiming at blocking some oxidative and/or inflammatory pathways, the question of antioxidants micronutrient therapy, particularly of selenium, ascorbic acid and thiamine remains open.Recent findings The rationale for the essentiality of numerous micronutrients within the mitochondria is well established. Many studies have tested single micronutrients in animal and in-vitro models and provide positive evidences in favor of reduction of organ failure (cardiac and renal mainly). In clinical settings, high-dose selenium administration in sepsis has been disappointing. The most recent high dose, short-term ascorbic acid trial in sepsis is promising though, with an associated reduction of mortality, but analysis of the impact of this intervention on the various organs remains to be conducted.Summary Results from animal and human studies indicate that there are indeed intervention options at the level of the mitochondria, but neither the optimal dose nor the optimal combination of micronutrients is yet identified.

  • Nutrition intake in the post-ICU hospitalization period
    • Authors: Ridley; Emma J.; Chapple, Lee-anne S.; Chapman, Marianne J.
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review The care of critically ill patients has evolved over recent years, resulting in significant reductions in mortality in developed countries; sometimes with prolonged issues with recovery. Nutrition research has focused on the early, acute period of critical illness, until more recently, where the post-ICU hospitalization period in critical care survivors has become a focus for nutrition rehabilitation. In this period, nutrition rehabilitation may be a vital component of recovery.Recent findings Overall, oral nutrition is the most common mode of nutrition provision in the post-ICU period. Compared with oral intake alone, calorie and protein requirements can be better met with the addition of oral supplements and/or enteral nutrition to oral intake. However, calorie and protein intake remains below predicted targets in the post-ICU hospitalization period. Achieving nutrition targets are complex and multifactorial, but can primarily be grouped into three main areas: patient factors; clinician factors; and system factors.Summary A nutrition intervention in the post-ICU hospitalization period may provide an opportunity to improve survival and functional recovery. However, there are multiple barriers to the delivery of calculated nutrition requirements in this period, a limited understanding of how this can be improved and how this translates into clinical benefit.

  • Dietary management of blood glucose in medical critically ill patients
           with overweight/obesity
    • Authors: Srinath; Reshmi; Mechanick, Jeffrey I.
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review As the obesity epidemic continues, there is a greater proportion of patients with overweight, obesity, and other forms of adiposity-based chronic disease that require intensive care. Nutrition therapy in the ICU is a vital part of critical care but can be challenging in this setting because of the increased risk of stress hyperglycemia and adverse impact of obesity- and diabetes-related complications.Recent findings Current guidelines favor early nutritional therapy with a hypocaloric, high-protein diet in patients with overweight/obesity. More aggressive protein intake may be useful in those with greater severity of overweight/obesity with an upper limit of 3 g/kg ideal body weight per day. Although there is no specific recommendation, choosing enteral formulas with higher fat content and slower digesting carbohydrates may assist with glucose control. Supplementation with immunonutrients is recommended, given their known benefits in obesity and in reducing inflammation, but must be done in an individualized manner.Summary Aggressive nutritional therapy is crucial in patients with overweight/obesity to support ongoing metabolic demands. Although a hypocaloric high-protein feeding strategy is a starting point, nutritional therapy should be approached in an individualized manner taking into account age, weight and BMI, basal metabolism, nutrition status, complications, and comorbidities.

  • Is slower advancement of enteral feeding superior to aggressive full
           feeding regimens in the early phase of critical illness
    • Authors: Lheureux; Olivier; Preiser, Jean-Charles
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review An excessive caloric intake during the acute phase of critical illness is associated with adverse effects, presumably related to overfeeding, inhibition of autophagy and refeeding syndrome. The purpose of this review is to summarize recently published clinical evidence in this area.Recent findings Several observational studies, a few interventional trials, and systematic reviews/metaanalyses were published in 2017–2019. Most observational studies reported an association between caloric intakes below 70% of energy expenditure and a better vital outcome. In interventional trials, or systematic reviews, neither a benefit nor a harm was related to increases or decreases in caloric intake. Gastrointestinal dysfunction can be worsened by forced enteral feeding, whereas the absorption of nutrients can be impaired.Summary Owing to the risks of the delivery of an excessive caloric intake, a strategy of permissive underfeeding implying a caloric intake matching a maximum of 70% of energy expenditure provides the best risk-to-benefit ratio during the acute phase of critical illness.

  • Defining sarcopenia: some caveats and challenges
    • Authors: Sanchez-Rodriguez; Dolores; Marco, Ester; Cruz-Jentoft, Alfonso J.
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review To summarize the latest advances and caveats in defining sarcopenia and discuss the implications of the most recent worldwide initiatives which are trying to harmonize the definition.Recent findings The evolution over time of the definitions of sarcopenia is discussed, with a focus on the European Working Group on Sarcopenia in Older People 2 (EWGSOP2) definition and the Sarcopenia Definitions and Outcomes Consortium (SDOC) conference. The EWGSOP2 and the SDOC agree on the overall concept of sarcopenia, which involves both impaired function (low muscle strength) and structural damage (low muscle mass/quality). However, physical performance is considered as a diagnostic criterion (EWGSOP), a severity grading assessment (EWGSOP2) or an outcome (SDOC) pending on the definition used. Muscle strength has been recognized as the best predictor of health outcomes. Muscle mass alone, as part of the definition of cachexia, sarcopenia and malnutrition, is a nondefining parameter. Furthermore, there is a lack of precision in measurement techniques and variability of the cut-off points in defining it.Summary We discuss the relationship of sarcopenia with cachexia, malnutrition and frailty, and the areas that are hampering agreement. We summarize key scientific evidence, consider future study of this nutrition-related disease and raise concern about the need for a universal definition of sarcopenia.

  • Title of review article: admissible daily intake for glutamate
    • Authors: Tomé; Daniel
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Total glutamate (Glu) intake is 5–20 g/day in adults and about 40 mg/kg in breast-fed infant. Glu intake is constituted by Glu from protein and free Glu from certain foods and flavor-enhancing additive. The admissible intake of free Glu additive is addressed.Recent finding In the gut, Glu is actively metabolized by enterocytes and because of this metabolism, the systemic availability of ingested Glu remains relatively low. Human studies are preferred to assess the transfer in blood of dietary free Glu salts and their possible risks. When human data are not available, experimental animal models provide the basis to assess the risks to humans but toxicity studies in rodents remain for a part controversial. A No Observable Adverse Effect Level (NOAEL) in rodent of 3200 mg/kg/day and an uncertainty factor of 100 lead to an acceptable daily intake (ADI) of 30 mg/kg/day for free Glu salts used as additives, whereas a NOAEL higher than 6000 mg/kg/day and an uncertainty factor of 25 leads to an ADI of 240 mg/kg/day for free Glu salts.Summary Current discussions indicate an ADI from 30 to 240 mg/kg/day depending on the chosen NOAEL in animal model and compound-specific uncertainty factor (from 25 to 100).

  • Alcoholism and nutrition: a review of vitamin supplementation and
    • Authors: Lewis; Michael J.
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review This is a review of the research on the effectiveness of vitamin supplementation for alcoholism and alcohol-related illnesses. The focus is on research, both clinical and basic on alcohol treatment and nutritional effectiveness of these vital nutrients.Recent findings Most of the research involves basic experiments exploring the impact of vitamin depletion or deficits on physiological systems, especially liver and brain, in rodents. These often include behavioral measures that use cognitive, learning/memory and motivation experiments that model clinical studies. These provide support for hypotheses concerning the impact of such deficiencies in clinical populations. Clinical studies are rare and involve evaluation of the outcome of supplementation usually in the context of a treatment program. Specific vitamins, dosages and treatment programs vary. Deficiencies in retinoids (vitamin A), thiamine (B1) and niacin (B3) are the most frequently investigated. However, there is a greater need for further research on other vitamins, and for more uniform supplementation and treatment procedures.Summary The literature is primarily basic research on specific vitamins. There are very significant findings with individual vitamin supplementation and combinations that show promise of our understanding of the role of vitamins in the disease of alcoholism and its treatment.

Veganism is a strict form of vegetarianism, which has gained increasing attention in recent years. This review will focus on studies addressing mortality and health-span in vegans and vegetarians and discuss possible longevity-enhancing mechanisms.Recent findings Studies in vegans are still limited. Epidemiologic studies consistently show lower disease rates, such as lower incidence of cancer and cardiovascular disease, but mortality rates are comparable with rates in vegetarians and occasional meat eaters. Reasons for following strict vegan diets differ, which may affect diet quality, and thus health and life-span. New insights into some characteristics of veganism, such as protein restriction or restriction in certain amino acids (leucine or methionine) show potentially life-span-enhancing potential. Veganism improves insulin resistance and dyslipidemia and associated abnormalities. Gut microbiota as mediator of dietary impact on host metabolism is more diverse in vegans and has been suggested to be a health-promoting factor. Vegan diets do not fulfill the requirements of children, pregnant women or old individuals who should receive adequate supplements.Summary There is substantial evidence that plant-based diets are associated with better health but not necessarily lower mortality rates. The exact mechanisms of health promotion by vegan diets are still not entirely clear but most likely multifactorial. Reasons for and quality of the vegan diet should be assessed in longevity studies.
