He is a Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and Adjunct Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Meharry Medical College.   Since the 1990s, Dr. Osteen's research program has focused on environmental endocrine disruptors and how they impact endometriosis. His laboratory developed “organ-on-a-chip” technology, which is a tiny plastic “chip” about the size of a USB thumb drive that mimics the workings of the microenvironment of a human organ. Dr. Osteen's team created the first endometrium and endometriosis chip models. These “organ-on-a-chip” models provide a way to test and observe what happens in “normal” endometrium, and in those that have endometriosis. This technology changes the way doctors study this disease.   Dr. Osteen and I are talking about the organ-on-a-chip technology, endometriosis, and endocrine disruptors, and reproductive health.

Video:  Edward Dowd: Economic Fallout of Covid Vax Fraud (start @ 1:00 Stop @ 14:45) Asian Plum extract significantly benefit liver functions over placebo Stragen Pharma (Switzerland), The Asian plum of the rosaceae family, has been studied for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and liver protecting properties. A study funded by Swiss company Stragen Pharma looks deeper into how this plum extract can benefit the liver. “Most of the currently available data supporting a potential hepatoprotective [liver protecting] effect of P. mume  have been obtained using in vitro testing, in vivo  animal models, or non-controled human trials,” the researchers wrote in the study published in Phythotherapy Research. Hence, the current study was the first that looked into the effects of two doses of a P. mune extract supplement on liver enzymes through a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study. From the 44 subjects who participated throughout the 3-month long study, researchers found a “beneficial and statistically significant effect versus placebo of P. mune extract on liver function.” Researchers found that, over the course of the study, participants supplemented with the low dose of Prunus mume experienced significant decreases in their high aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, and gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase liver enzymes, all of which induce hepatotoxicity, whereas the high dose group did not experience significant changes in their liver enzymes. Dietary fiber in the gut may help with skin allergies, says new study Monash University (Australia), A Monash University study exploring the emerging gut-skin axis has found that microbial fermentation of dietary fiber in the gut can protect against allergic skin disease. The research could potentially lead to novel treatments to prevent or treat allergies. Professor Ben Marsland from the Central Clinical School's Department of Immunology, together with Swiss colleagues at the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV), showed that the fermentation of fiber in the gut by bacteria and subsequent production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), in particular butyrate, protected against atopic dermatitis in mice.  University of Maine study shows chocolate is brain food University of Maine, University of Maine published findings in the journal Appetite, saying people who ate chocolate at least once per week performed better on multiple cognitive tasks compared to those who ate chocolate less frequently. “We don't know if people are going to get smarter,” Elias, a psychologist and epidemiologist, said from his office on the Orono campus. “What we found out is that people who ate chocolate performed better [on cognitive functions] than people who did not.” The study, directed by Elias, tracked more than 1,000 people over 35 years and looked specifically at chocolate consumption's effect on visual-spatial memory and organization, working memory, abstract verbal reasoning, scanning and tracking and overall cognitive functioning. “We did not follow cognitive function over time and see any rise in intelligence,” he said. “What we did find was that people who ate chocolate on a regular basis performed better on cognitive functions than people who did not.” The researchers hypothesized that regular intake of cocoa flavanols may be one of several mechanism explaining the cognitive benefits of chocolate. According to the team's publication, flavonols have multiple effects on the brain on the cellular and molecular levels in the regions involved in learning and memory and by increasing blood flow in the brain promoting development of new blood vessels. Want to reduce stroke risk? Sit less. Move more. Do chores. San Diego State University, Imagine watching “The Batman” movie back-to-back four times every day or driving a whopping 390 miles each way on a daily commute. Either uncomfortable choice will take about 12 hours—or the same amount of time most Americans stay seated throughout any day. The dangerous consequences of prolonged inactivity in humans are widely known. Too much sitting leads to an increased risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and other chronic illnesses, including depression. To offset the severe side effects of a sedentary lifestyle, doctors recommend adults complete at least 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous aerobic exercise a week.  However, a new study from San Diego State University, published in JAMA Network Open, found that doing lighter intensity daily activities such as household chores can significantly reduce the risk of stroke.  “Light-intensity physical activity can include vacuuming, sweeping the floor, washing the car, leisure strolling, stretching, or playing catch,” said Steven Hooker, dean of SDSU's College of Health and Human Services and lead researcher of the cohort study.  They found those who were sedentary for 13 hours or more a day had a 44% increased risk of having a stroke.  Uncovering why playing a musical instrument can protect brain health Baycrest Center for Geriatric Care (Canada), A recent study conducted at Baycrest Health Sciences has uncovered a crucial piece into why playing a musical instrument can help older adults retain their listening skills and ward off age-related cognitive declines. This finding could lead to the development of brain rehabilitation interventions through musical training. The study, published in the Journal of Neuroscience  found that learning to play a sound on a musical instrument alters the brain waves in a way that improves a person's listening and hearing skills over a short time frame. This change in brain activity demonstrates the brain's ability to rewire itself and compensate for injuries or diseases that may hamper a person's capacity to perform tasks. This finding supports Dr. Ross' research using musical training to help stroke survivors rehabilitate motor movement in their upper bodies. Baycrest scientists have a history of breakthroughs into how a person's musical background impacts the listening abilities and cognitive function as they age and they continue to explore how brain changes during aging impact hearing. The study involved 32 young, healthy adults who had normal hearing and no history of neurological or psychiatric disorders. The brain waves of participants were first recorded while they listened to bell-like sounds from a Tibetan singing bowl (a small bell struck with a wooden mallet to create sounds). After listening to the recording, half of the participants were provided the Tibetan singing bowl and asked to recreate the same sounds and rhythm by striking it and the other half recreated the sound by pressing a key on a computer keypad. “This study was the first time we saw direct changes in the brain after one session, demonstrating that the action of creating music leads to a strong change in brain activity.” Effect of Korean Red Ginseng on Cognitive Function and Quantitative EEG in Alzheimer Patients Seoul Medical Center  (Korea)  According to news reporting originating in Seoul, South Korea  research stated, “Korean red ginseng (KRG) has a nootropic effect. This study assessed the efficacy of red ginseng on cognitive function and quantitative electroencephalography (EEG) in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD).” Research from Seoul Medical Center stated “Fourteen patients with AD (mean age, 74.93 years; 11 women and 3 men) were recruited and treated with KRG (4.5 g per day) for 12 weeks. EEG performed before and after treatment were analyzed with quantitative spectral analysis. The Frontal Assessment Battery score improved significantly after 12 weeks of treatment. In the relative power spectrum analysis performed according to responsiveness, alpha power increased significantly in the right temporal area of the responders. The increments of relative alpha power in the right temporal, parietal, and occipital areas were significantly higher in the responders than the nonresponders.” According to the news reporters, the research concluded: “This study indicates the efficacy of KRG on frontal lobe function in AD, related to increasing relative alpha power.”

Episode Summary:Antibodies are one of the greatest tools we have in our therapeutic arsenal and have transformed the way we treat cancer and autoimmunity. But we still largely develop these drugs using guess and check methods, massively slowing down the process. However, our own B cells are constantly making new antibodies against the pathogens and diseases we routinely suffer from, creating a gold mine of drugs floating around inside all of us. We just need to find them! Recognizing this challenge, Nima and his team at Avail Bio have leveraged their deep experience in computation and systems immunology to build a platform that massively screens the antibody repertoire of patients who have successfully cleared a disease. With it, they find ready-to-deploy antibody drugs that could treat everything from cancer to autoimmunity and even reprogram our own immune system! Search Keywords: fifty years, bio, translation, antibodies, B cells, cancer, autoimmunity, immunology, avail bio, nima emamiEpisode Notes:About the GuestNima Emami is the CEO & co-founder of Avail Bio. He received a PhD in Bioinformatics from the UCSF Cancer Center, and studied Bioengineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at UC Berkeley.Key TakeawaysThe immune system contains a massive diversity of antibodies that hold clues on how to fight disease. Avail has developed a platform to discover and develop these antibodies for cancer and autoimmune disease.Companies that spin out of universities can pair with accelerators early on to both raise funding and make progress with a small amount of capital. The most challenging part of pulling IP out of a university is speed. Public universities that generate many spinouts are often overwhelmed with the amount of inventions disclosed concurrently, which lengthens the time required for tech transfer.Avail's platform combines synbio, machine learning and genomics to both discover and validate targets, and ultimately translate those targets into drugs. Failure of clinical stage programs in cancer trials can be traced back to the failure of mouse models to faithfully recapitulate the cancer biology or the immunobiology that we see in humans.The future that Avail hopes to create is one where drugs developed using their platform will reach patients, thereby changing the drug discovery paradigm to be more data-driven.ImpactThe platform that Avail is building peers inside the human immune response to find and develop novel antibodies to cure cancer and autoimmune disease.Company: Avail Bio

On one Friday each month, these shorter episodes will feature guests who'll get right into useful information in a Q&A style. You'll find out how to improve your energy and upgrade your performance. You'll also get the latest knowledge about powerful tools and technologies that allow you to change your biology and the environment around you. Introducing OneSkin! During this Upgrade Spotlight, you'll learn about new products designed to target skin aging at the molecular level and promote skin and body health. You'll also find out the science behind OneSkin's formulas and why they are considered “daily topical supplements.” They can help you maintain functional and resilient skin as you age. OneSkin topical supplements are powered by a proprietary peptide: OS-01, which decreases the accumulation of aged/senescent (zombie) cells in the skin. By targeting the major driver of skin aging, OS-01 has been scientifically proven to:• Repair cellular damage, including UV damage• Increase epidermal thickness• Improve barrier function• Increase the activity of genes associated with collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin production• Reverse the biological age of skin“So this peptide has a very interesting profile because it's small enough to penetrate and it's super safe,” explains Carolina Reis Oliveira, Ph.D., scientist, CEO and co-founder of OneSkin. “There is no toxicity, no irritation. We've done all the recommended studies by FDA for personal care products, and, has this beautiful effect of reducing the accumulation of senescent cells, and also reduces the release of inflammatory markers, and increase the production of hyaluronic acid, elastin and collagen. So, in the end, there's a molecule that has all these attributes that's very important for healthy skin, overall.”Another exciting part of this peptide work includes MolClock, the first skin-specific molecular clock, capable of reliably and accurately determining the biological age of skin. This was created by OneSkin's team of female PhD-level longevity scientists as part of its research and development platform.Carolina relocated from Latin America to Silicon Valley in 2016 to co-found OneSkin and lead the development of the company's disruptive skin rejuvenation technologies. She holds a Ph.D. in Immunology, along with degrees in biochemistry, stem cell biology and tissue engineering. Her team of co-founders includes three other female scientists with additional expertise in skin regeneration, bioinformatics, genomics, immunology and molecular biology. Among them, they've invented numerous patents and have published nearly 100 peer-reviewed papers in scientific journals.This episode explores exciting new information about improving skin health at the molecular level for the long-term. When you do that, your body will be more equipped to defend itself from environmental stressors and aggressors, especially with age.

We discuss: her recent study linking the ketogenic diet to lower risk of colon cancer; what the ketogenic diet is and what the metabolic state of ‘ketosis' does in the body; molecules called ketone bodies, such as BHB, and the extent to which BHB supplementation can recapitulate some of the physiological effects of the ketogenic diet; how the microbiome influences the function and development of the immune system; and the hygiene hypothesis, the idea that modern human cultures may be too clean, or rely too heavily on antibiotics and other technology, and interfere with our microbiome in ways that may be detrimental to metabolic and immunological health.USEFUL LINKSSign up for the weekly Mind & Matter newsletter[https://mindandmatter.substack.com/?sort=top]Follow Nick's work through Linktree:[https://linktr.ee/trikomes]Elysium Health, a life sciences company focused on aging research.

My guest this week is someone I have wanted to interview on my podcast since the FIRST SEASON. This someone is not only a groundbreaking researcher and scientist, he is also my dear friend, Dr. Alexander Marson.  Alex is the Director of Gladstone-UCSF Institute of Genomic Immunology, a senior investigator at Gladstone Institute, and an Associate Professor in the Departments of Medicine and Microbiology and Immunology at UCSF.  Alex is interested in how DNA controls the behavior of cells in the human immune system. He and his team are using the power of CRISPR technology to genetically engineer cells to fight cancer, autoimmune diseases, and infectious diseases. My intention for recording this particular conversation was to get Alex's take on communicating complex messages in a more accessible way. It's something the scientific community is really wrestling with these days, perhaps now more than ever:  How do you communicate complicated and immense topics in a way that is repeatable and interesting? How do we approach critical information, currently understood by only a few, to make it accessible to the rest of us? This is also a conversation about the alchemy that happens when the right people make contact at the right moment, and something new is born.  Pour that beverage, or lace up your sneakers and leash up that hound.

When we're only blocking one protein, we have much less severe side effects.” [2:59] “If your skin is not in balance with its microbes, it will affect your gut. We really got to address that. That is the root cause, and usually the way that we're going to address that is with eating more plant-based foods and getting some of the toxins out of our system, and letting those microbes grow the way that they were supposed to grow in normal ecosystems.” [17:47]  Links Find Dr. Zwickey online here Healthy Skin Show ep. 180:  How Hormones Impact Your Immune System + Skin Health w/ Heather Zwickey, PhD Healthy Skin Show ep.157: How Your Immune System Can Trigger Skin Rashes w/ Heather Zwickey, PhD Follow Dr. Zwickey on Instagram
