      Abstract: It is a plaesaure to announce the celebration of the XXXI Congress of the Spanish Nutrition Society that will be held in Cartagena (Murcia, Spain), from September 15th to 17th, 2022. As is already a tradition in our society, the day before, on September 14th, the IX Meeting of young researchers will take place, aimed at promoting interaction and knowledge exchange among young people working in the field of nutrition and food in Spain. In addition, young reserachers will receive a workshop about how to produce videos of research with high impact in the social media.The congress will offer a scientific and multidisciplinary journey through all aspects related to a personalized diet from children to adults, healthy, safe and sustainable. The connections between lifestyles and chronic non-communicable diseases and especially obesity, will be updated, as well as precision nutrition, incorporating the outstanding advances in nutrigenomics, epigenetics and metabolomic markers. New evidence of healthy effects of bioactive, prebiotic and probiotic components is also contemplated, without forgetting the issue of food allergies and intolerances, which are increasingly prevalent in our society. The circular economy and the new preferences for sustainable and local food pose challenges that will also be addressed at the congress and in the sessions for young researchers. In addition, the problem generated by the dissemination of nutritional information poorly contrasted in the media and social networks will be considered.We encourage you to schedule these dates in your 2022 agenda to attend and participate in our congress, whose program we have designed with great enthusiasm. We would also like to extend the invitation to participate to companies and institutions related to food, which will help us reflect that optimal food is only achieved with the involvement of EVERYONE.We hope that the proposal of this congress will be attractive to you and that we can share enriching experiences in Cartagena, Spain. The program of the congress is available in the URL https://www.xxxicongresosen2022.com/index.aspYours sincerely,Elvira Larqué Daza, Organizer of the Spanish Nutrition Society (SEÑ) Congress 2022, Cartagena, Spain.Salvador Zamora Navarro, Honour member from the Spanish Nutrition Society (SEÑ).María Puy Portillo Baquedano, President of the Spanish Nutrition Society (SEÑ).

  • Radiomics in addition to computed tomography–based body composition
           nomogram may improve the prediction of postoperative complications in
           gastric cancer patients

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives: To determine the impact of computed tomography (CT)-based body composition and radiomics nomogram on the prediction of postoperative complications in gastric cancer.Methods: The clinical data of 457 individuals with surgically confirmed gastric cancer, 320 patients in the training cohort (TC) and 137 patients in the validation cohort (VC), were retrospectively analyzed. Body composition data were measured using CT. Postoperative complications were graded using the Clavien-Dindo system. Dedicated radiomics prototype software was used to segment lesions and extract characteristics from preoperative portal venous-phase CT images. Clinical, radiomics, and combined models were developed using logistic regression analysis. Model performance was evaluated using the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC), and the prediction ability of the optimal model was evaluated using calibration curves and decision curve analysis (DCA).Results: Nutritional Risk Screening 2002 (NRS2002) score, sarcopenia, and blood loss were independent predictors of postoperative complications in gastric cancer. A radiomics signature was created using 19 conserved radiomics features. The nomogram based on both the clinical model and radiomics signature showed the greatest predictive performance, with AUCs of 0.763 (95% confidence interval [CI], 0.708–0.817) and 0.748 (95% CI, 0.667–0.818) in the TC and VC, respectively. The calibration curve and DCA revealed that the nomogram was beneficial in clinical practice for the preoperative prediction of postoperative complications.Conclusions: The combined model consisting of NRS2002 score, sarcopenia, blood loss, and a radiomics signature holds potential application value for the individualized prediction of postoperative complications in gastric cancer patients.

  • Adherence to Treatment Recommendations in Chronic Disease: What is
           (im)Possible' Expert conclusions from the 30th ECOG workshop 2021

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Obesity is a chronic disease, in which treatment outcomes are highly dependent on patient and family adherence to behavioural recommendations. The role of healthy eating, physical activity, medication adherence as well as adherence to pre- and post-bariatric surgery protocols are of utmost importance for long-term treatment outcomes. Even the best interventions are not likely to reach their maximum benefit without significant levels of adherence on the part of the individual and family. Traditionally, the annual meeting of the European Childhood Obesity Group (ECOG) includes an expert workshop addressing one specific topic within the field of childhood obesity. During the 30th annual meeting, hosted by the University of Pécs, Hungary, as a virtual meeting, “adherence to treatment recommendations in obesity as a chronic disease” was addressed. The discussions that developed during the workshop are summarized in the following article.

      Abstract: Aim: We aimed to evaluate the difference between computed tomography (CT) and bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) -based assessment of sarcopenia in patients with chronic liver disease (CLD).Methods: We enrolled a total of 257 patients who was diagnosed with sarcopenia by CT and BIA based on the Japan Society of Hepatology.To evaluate whether or not the different methods influence the diagnosis of sarcopenia for the patients with CLD, we assessed the number and characteristics of mismatch between the low SMI using BIA and CT. We also compared with the overall survival (OS) in patients with sarcopenia and non-sarcopenia base on CT and BIA to evaluate the appropriate methods.Results: The number of patients with low SMI using BIA and CT was 28 (10.9%) and 68 (26.5%) patients, respectively. Multivariate analysis revealed that hepatic ascites and body weight were independent factors of mismatch between SMI using BIA and CT (hazard ratio [HR] 3.232, P

  • Remote treatment successfully delivers a usual-care weight loss and
           lifestyle intervention in adults with morbid obesity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Introduction: Remote delivery of behavioral and lifestyle interventions has shown great potential for achieving weight loss comparable to in-person treatment. However, little is known about its effects on adherence and efficacy in a real-world setting. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our usual care, a 12-months treatment program for morbid obesity, had to be transitioned to remote delivery. We evaluated whether this had adverse effects on weight loss or adherence.Methods: We report retrospective data of 234 patients who either belonged to a cohort affected by the transition of treatment delivery (N=117, mean age = 44.2 years; BMI = 47.7 kg/m²) or to an individually matched control group treated prior to the pandemic (N=117, 44.4 years; 47.3 kg/m²). Weight loss, drop-outs, and attendance were compared between both groups and between remote and regular treatment periods.Results: Weight loss and the number of drop-outs did not differ between the two groups and between treatment periods. However, attendance at remotely offered meetings was lower in the pandemic group (72.5%) when compared to the same meetings offered face-to-face in the control group (81.0%, p < .001).Discussion/Conclusion. Usual-care weight loss and lifestyle interventions for morbid obesity can be successfully delivered via remote treatment.

  • Risk scores for metabolic dysfunction-associated fatty liver disease in
           pediatric obesity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Introduction: Early non-invasive detection of incipient liver damage is crucial to prevent long-term adverse health outcomes. A variety of scores to assess liver status have been proposed, mostly for adult populations. Validation of non-invasive hepatic scores to identify children at risk of metabolic dysfunction-associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD) is a gap in research, particularly in youth with severe obesity considering pubertal stage and sex. Methods: In a well-characterized pediatric population aged 9 to 19 years (n=115) 19 published liver scores were analyzed. AUROC for determination of MAFLD as assessed by magnetic resonance imaging was calculated. Results: The pediatric indices PNFI, B-AST and M-APRI and several scores developed in adults significantly differed in children with MAFLD compared to children without, while some established indices did not. Only NAFLD-LFS and the model by Cao et al. showed acceptable predictive accuracy (AUROC> 0.8) independently of pubertal stage and sex. When stratifying for pubertal stage and sex, the GSG-Index was superior in pubertal girls, and NAFLD-LFS performed best in pubertal boys. Conclusion: NAFLD-LFS and the model by Cao et al. were well suited to predict MAFLD in youth with severe obesity. In pubertal children, GSG-Index and NAFLD-LFS performed best in girls and boys, respectively.

  • Effect of central venous nutrition infusion, intravenous fat emulsion, and
           therapeutic agents on the particle size of fat emulsion for simultaneous
           administration of three drugs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Background: In Japan, therapeutic agents are often administered through the side tube of a central venous line or mixed with a total parenteral nutrition (TPN) infusion. This is expected to result in the mixture of three drugs in the infusion line: the infusion product for TPN, the fat emulsion, and the therapeutic agent. Therefore, we investigated whether various therapeutic agents affect the particle size of the fat emulsion.Methods: In model of administration A, the TPN infusion formulation was administered through the main tube and the fat emulsion and therapeutic agents were simultaneously administered through the side tube; 21 therapeutic agents were used. In model of administration B, the TPN infusion formulation mixed with therapeutic agents was administered through the main tube and the fat emulsion was simultaneously administered through the side tube; 20 therapeutic agents were used. The number of fine particles for each particle size range in the mixed solution was measured over time using a light-shielding automatic fine particle measuring device.Results: In model A, the number of fine particles in the fat emulsion changed rapidly for five therapeutic agents and slowly for two therapeutic agents. In model B, this change occurred drastically for five therapeutic agents and slowly for one therapeutic agent.Conclusions: Some therapeutic agents may contribute to fat particle aggregation. Therefore, these therapeutic agents should not be concurrently administered with fat emulsions.
