Educational Track: General Session

Title: Anti-Aging Survival Protocols

Presenter: Ronald Klatz, M.D., D.O.; President, American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M)

As part of the Congress Opening Remarks, Ronald Klatz, M.D., D.O., presents eye-opening evidence suggesting that while we are on the cusp of significant anti-aging breakthroughs, a number of challenges are poised to destroy this scientific progress. He offers the audience several practical protocols that formulate an anti-aging survival program to address modern-day life-robbing health challenges.

Educational Track: General Session

Title: Keynote Address – The Osteopathic Medical Profession

Presenter: Martin S. Levine, D.O., MPH, FACOFP; President, American Osteopathic Association (AOA)

Martin S. Levine, D.O., MPH, FACOFP provides information about the demographics of the osteopathic medical profession, in relation to the AOA’s role in setting health policy. With the A4M and AOA sharing similar preventative medicine goals, Dr. Levine explains how prevention and wellness serve as the foundation for the training and education that osteopathic physicians (DOs) receive.

Educational Track: General Session

Title: Featured Lecture – Testosterone & Prostate Cancer: A Conceptual Revolution

Presenter: Abraham Morgentaler, M.D.; Associate Clinical Professor of Surgery, Harvard Medical School; Author, “Testosterone for Life”

Abraham Morgentaler, M.D. reassesses the role of testosterone – offering evidence to counter the notion that the hormone is a prime factor in prostate cancer growth. He shares clinical evidence that indicatives that testosterone therapy appears to be safe with regard to prostate cancer, and may even exert therapeutic benefit in specific cases of the disease.

Educational Track: General Session

Title: Restricted Ketogenic Diet as Treatment for Malignant Tumors

Presenter: Joseph C. Maroon, M.D.; Professor and Vice Chairman of Neurological Surgery & Heindl Scholar in Neuroscience, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine; Team Physician, Pittsburgh Steelers

Malignant brain cancer (glioblastoma multiforme GBM) is a catastrophic disease with a mean survival of 12-18 months, and the number of cases of this deadly cancer are on the rise. Joseph C. Maroon, M.D. submits that malignancies of most kinds are a glucose/glutamine dependant entity, and that a calorie restricted ketogenic diet (RKGD) involving a ratio of 4:1 fat to protein/CHO may be considered as the initial treatment of brain cancer after diagnosis. He shares clinical evidence that shows that RKGD combined with drugs targeting glucose and glutamine reduction may provide a rational strategy for the long-term management of most malignant brain and other cancers.

Educational Track: Breakout Track 1

Title: Aging-Reversing Properties of Thyrotropin Hormone

Presenter: Walter Pierpaoli, M.D., Ph.D.; Director, Jean Choay Institute for Biomedical Research in Neuroimmodulation; Author, “The Melatonin Miracle”

One of the world’s foremost researchers in melatonin and related neuropeptides, Walter Pierpaoli, M.D., Ph.D. expands his research scope to explore the hormonal basis of neurodegenerative diseases. His presentation discusses clinical perspectives to impaired brain and nerve functioning – manifesting as poor memory, cognition, attention span, learning ability and physical incompetence.

Educational Track: Breakout Track 1

Title: Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Injections in an Office Setting

Presenter: Joseph Purita, M.D. ; Director, The Institute of Regenerative and Molecular Orthopedics

Focusing on the clinical application of stem cells for orthopedic injuries, Joseph Purita, M.D. reviews the compounds key in the production of growth factors that allow stem cells to migrate to areas of injury. As well, he presents case studies that document the use of Platelet Rich Plasma, in conjunction with Bone Marrow Stem Cells (BMAC) and Adipose Stem Cells (SVF) and fat grafts, to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic conditions in an office setting. Dr. Purita shares the results of 3,800 cases performed at The Institute of Regenerative and Molecular Orthopedics, involving both PRP and bone marrow aspirate concentration injections (BMAC).

Friday, December 9

Educational Track: Breakout Track 3

Title: Prevention of Age-Associated Disease by Optimizing the Micronutrient Intake: Triage Theory

Presenter: Bruce N. Ames, Ph.D.; Professor Emeritus, University of California/Berkeley; Senior Scientist, Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute

Bruce N. Ames, Ph.D. is author of the Triage Theory, which submits that micronutrients (approximately 40 essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and amino acids) are substances essential to proper metabolic function and thus both short-term survival and long-term health. Triage theory predicts that the consequence of moderate shortages of even a single micronutrient, though insufficient to cause overt clinical symptoms, will impair functions essential for long-term health. This impairment will result in insidious damage (e.g. increased DNA damage) that, over time, leads to the acceleration of age-associated diseases (e.g. increased cancer). As people with modest deficiencies have no overt clinical symptoms, there has been little incentive to correct these deficiencies, though this could change if it can be shown that they are resulting in biochemical changes, e.g. chromosome breaks, that are markers of increased risk of age-related diseases, e.g. cancer. The considerable experimental and theoretical support for the triage idea will be discussed as will a strategy for determining the optimum level of each micronutrient in humans.

Title: The Toxic Triangle: Diabesity, Glycation, and Environmental Toxins

Presenter: Frederic Vagnini, M.D.; Medical Director, Heart, Diabetes & Weight Loss Centers of New York

Frederic Vagnini, M.D. presents The Toxic Triangle, a theory that offers preventative strategies to counter the array of health complications associated with degenerative disease. The first component of the Toxic Triangle, diabesity – the combination of obesity, diabetes and incident cardiovascular disease, poses a significant danger to individual patients and poses as an emerging public health issue. Glycation, the second component of the Toxic Triangle, involves cellar damage caused by glucose and other sugars as the result of Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs), and is linked to accelerated oxidative damage, inflammation, organ damage and progressive atherothrombosis. Exposure to environmental toxins, the third element of the Toxic Triangle, can lead to neurological dysfunction, enzyme and metabolic disorders, obesity, depressed immunity, endocrine dysfunction and cancer. For each of the three aspects of the Toxic Triangle, Dr. Vagnini presents practical therapeutic guidelines to intervene in the effects and thereby effectively retard the onslaught of degenerative aging-related diseases.

The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, Inc. (“A4M”) is a non-profit medical society dedicated to the advancement of technology to detect, prevent, and treat aging related disease and to promote research into methods to retard and optimize the human aging process. A4M is also dedicated to educating physicians, scientists, and members of the public on biomedical sciences, breaking technologies, and anti-aging issues. A4M believes that the disabilities associated with normal aging are caused by physiological dysfunction which in many cases are ameliorable to medical treatment, such that the human lifespan can be increased, and the quality of one’s life enhanced as one grows chronologically older. A4M seeks to disseminate information concerning innovative science and research as well as treatment modalities designed to prolong the human lifespan. Anti-Aging Medicine is based on the scientific principles of responsible medical care consistent with those of other healthcare specialties. Although A4M seeks to disseminate information on many types of medical treatments, it does not promote or endorse any specific treatment nor does it sell or endorse any commercial product.
