Pharmacotherapeutic strategies for treating binge eating disorder. Evidence from clinical trials and implications for clinical practice. Expert Opin Pharmacother. 2019 Jan 29;:1-12 Authors: Amodeo G, Cuomo A, Bolognesi S, Goracci A, Trusso MA, Piccinni A, Neal SM, Baldini I, Federico E, Taddeucci C, Fagiolini A Abstract INTRODUCTION: Binge eating disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder and was newly recognized in 2013 in the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). BED is frequently associated with obesity and the metabolic syndrome, as well as with other psychiatric diseases, such as mood (49%), anxiety (41%), and substance use (22%) disorders. BED is highly prevalent and carries a high burden of mental and physical illness and disability. However, BED is frequently under-recognized and under-treated. Areas covered: This paper reviews the main pharmacological treatments for BED and provides an expert opinion based on the available evidence and on the authors' clinical experience with patients affected by BED. Expert opinion: Several medications have proven to be effective for the treatment of BED, including Lisdexamfetamine (LDX), topiramate as well as anti-anxiety and antidepressant medications. To date, LDX is the only FDA approved medication for BED. Consequently, as a general rule, the use of an FDA approved medication should always be preferred. However, when in the presence of concomitant psychia...

Conclusions: Nutrition counseling was rarely documented in a large sample of electronic medical record (EMR) data from pediatric wellness visits in South Carolina-a state heavily burdened by childhood obesity. Children's BMIs were infrequently recorded, which may be a barrier to tracking BMI over time. Sociodemographic and geographic differences in nutrition counseling may exacerbate disparities in childhood obesity. PMID: 32960095 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: In a NHP ARS model, sargramostim administered starting at 48 h post-radiation was effective to improve survival, while beneficial hematological effects were observed with sargramostim initiated up to 120 h post exposure. PMID: 32960660 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Even though bariatric surgery is one of the most effective treatment option of obesity, post-surgical weight loss is not always ensured, especially in the long term, when many patients experience weight regain. Bariatric procedures are largely based on surgeon's expertise and intra-operative decisions, while an integrated in-silico approach could support surgical activity. The effects of bariatric surgery on gastric distension, which activates the neural circuitry promoting satiety, can be considered one of the main factors in the operation success. This aspect can be investigated trough computational mod...
