    • The development of new drugs for treating obesity is ongoing, and more potent medications are being introduced. Among them, semaglutide and tirzepatide will soon be available in Korea, and their efficacy has been proven based on various clinical trials. In Symposium 5, we will discuss the efficacy of semaglutide and tirzepatide, as well as expectations and side effects associated with their use. In line with this, we will explore the safety and status of drug abuse when using anti-obesity drugs, which should be considered as important as their efficacy. This symposium will provide an opportunity for us to collectively contemplate the direction for optimal treatment in this field.

    • Prof. Wolfe is widely respected as the world’s foremost authority on stable isotope tracer methodology and on amino acid/protein nutrition. His research focuses on the regulation of muscle metabolism, particularly as affected by aging, obesity, insulin resistance, and stressors such as sepsis and cancer in humans. Prof. Wolfe has developed numerous metabolic tracing models using stable isotope tracers to quantify a variety of metabolic processes in humans, which has formed the foundation of our understanding of many aspects of normal and abnormal metabolism of glucose, fatty acid, and amino acid/protein in humans. In his plenary lecture, the particular emphasis will be placed on the response of fatty acid kinetics to different conditions (exercise, glucose intake, obesity) in the context of the triglyceride-fatty acid cycle, with his more than 50 years of experience in the human metabolic research.

    • In this session, we will delve into the intricate interplay between neuropsychology and obesity. Dr. Yun Ha Jeong from the Korea Brain Research Institute will discuss the impact of obesity and HDL concentration on the pathology of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Through an analysis of AD pathological changes in 5XFAD mice after obesity induction through a high-fat diet, Dr. Jeong presents a noteworthy phenomenon where the increase in HDL and APOA-I serum levels mitigates AD features, offering a potential avenue for novel therapeutic strategies.
    • Subsequently, Professor Kwang Wei Tham from Singapore Woodlands Health will elucidate how weight-related biases affect the physical, mental health, and obesity management of individuals. Lastly, Professor Youn Huh from Eulji University will explore the link between type 2 diabetes and dementia, emphasizing the growing relevance of preventing and managing these conditions, and discussing how type 2 diabetes escalates dementia risks, urging the derivation of preventive strategies based on research findings in light of the increasing prevalence of both diseases.

    • Prof. Wolfe is widely respected as the world’s foremost authority on stable isotope tracer methodology and on amino acid/protein nutrition. His research focuses on the regulation of muscle metabolism, particularly as affected by aging, obesity, insulin resistance, and stressors such as sepsis and cancer in humans. Prof. Wolfe has developed numerous metabolic tracing models using stable isotope tracers to quantify a variety of metabolic processes in humans, which has formed the foundation of our understanding of many aspects of normal and abnormal metabolism of glucose, fatty acid, and amino acid/protein in humans. In his plenary lecture, the particular emphasis will be placed on the response of fatty acid kinetics to different conditions (exercise, glucose intake, obesity) in the context of the triglyceride-fatty acid cycle, with his more than 50 years of experience in the human metabolic research.

    • Numerous studies have been conducted on the association between the decline in muscle mass, known as sarcopenia, and cardio-metabolic diseases. Recently, there has been a growing interest in the quality of muscles, as research findings suggest that muscle quality is important in various aspects, in addition to muscle mass reduction.
    • Myosteatosis, an important factor determining muscle quality, has emerged as a risk factor for new cardio-metabolic diseases beyond sarcopenia. In this session, we aim to explore the prevalence of myosteatosis and its relationship with cardio-metabolic diseases. Furthermore, we aim to investigate its significance by comparing it with the accumulation of other ectopic fats.

Particularly, Professor Bo-Kyung Koo from Seoul National University College of Medicine will explore data on factors related to the prognosis of cardiovascular and kidney disease, given the diverse impacts that complications in NAFLD patients have on cardiovascular and kidney conditions as well as liver condition.
    • We hope this session will assist you in managing the complications associated with MAFLD.

    • The interplay between adipose tissue's function as an energy reservoir and an endocrine organ is crucial for maintaining metabolic health. A key player in this dynamic balance is leptin, a hormone whose regulation is tightly linked to fat mass. Here we will discuss the multifaceted role of LATS1/2-YAP/TAZ signaling in regulating adipocyte plasticity and leptin production to maintain metabolic homeostasis.
