We are delighted to have Dr. Garth Nicolson as our guest expert in this week's episode.
Episode 47: Membrane Lipid Replacement for Chronic Illnesses, Aging and Cancer
Date: Thursday, April 19, 2018
Time: 9:30 AM Nanjing, China (GMT+8.00)
SAMA Expert: Dr. Garth Nicolson, PhD
Membrane Lipid Replacement is the use of functional, oral supplements containing mixtures of cell membrane glycerolphospholipids, plus fructooligosaccharides (for protection against oxidative, bile acid and enzymatic damage) and antioxidants, in order to safely replace damaged, oxidized, membrane phospholipids and restore membrane, organelle, cellular and organ function. Defects in cellular and intracellular membranes are characteristic of all chronic medical conditions, including cancer, and normal processes, such as aging.
Garth L. Nicolson, PhD, MD(H) is the founder of The Institute for Molecular Medicine at California, and he serves as the President, Chief Scientific Officer, and Emeritus Professor of Molecular Pathology. He is Conjoint Professor in the Faculty of Science and Technology, University of Newcastle, Australia.
During the outbreak of the Gulf War syndrome, he was the leading authority on the study of the cause, treatment and prevention of the disease. He was appointed Chairman of the Medical-Scientific Panel for the Persian Gulf War Veterans Conference. On suspicion of the bacterium that caused the disease as a product of biological warfare, he made extensive scientific investigations and served as authority to the United States House of Representatives.
For his service he was conferred honorary Colonel of the US Army Special Forces and honorary US Navy SEAL. With S.J. Singer, Nicolson published a paper titled "The fluid mosaic model of the structure of cell membranes" in 1972, which is now regarded as a classic paper in cell biology. With over 600 scientific papers, the majority of Nicolson's research is in cancer biology and cellular properties related to aging. He had invented a number of techniques in the study of cancer, and has five US patents. He was a Nobel Prize nominee in Cell Microbiology.
In 2003 he introduced the practice of lipid replacement therapy into a scientific concept. He observed that the therapy had anti-aging effects, restorative potential for chronic muscle weakness (fatigue), and was beneficial to patients undergoing cancer treatments. Nicolson found that at the cellular and molecular levels the actual replacement of damaged cellular lipids with undamaged lipids helped to maintain proper structure and function of cellular structures, mainly cell membrane and organelle membranes (especially those of mitochondria), and this is important for maintaining stable cellular functions.
During this interview, Dr. Garth Nicolson will share:
- Introduction to Membrane Lipid Replacement
- Cellular membrane phospholipids and membrane structure
- Membrane Lipid Replacement compositions and methods
- Membrane Lipid Replacement for chronic illnesses, aging and cancer
