Anorexia nervosa Disease Understanding and Treatment Algorithm

Anorexia nervosa Overview
Anorexia nervosa (AN) is an eating disorder characterized by weight loss or lack of appropriate weight gain in growing children; difficulties maintaining an appropriate body weight for height, age, and stature; and, in many individuals, distorted body image. People with anorexia generally restrict the number of calories and the types of food they eat.
This disorder is characterized by deliberate weight loss, induced and sustained by the patient. It occurs most commonly in adolescent girls and young women, but adolescent boys and young men may also be affected, as many children approaching puberty and older women up to the menopause. The disorder is associated with specific psychopathology whereby a dread of fatness and flabbiness of body contour persists as an intrusive, overvalued idea, and the patients impose a low weight threshold on themselves. There is usually under nutrition of varying severity with secondary endocrine and metabolic changes and disturbances of bodily function. The symptoms include restricted dietary choice, excessive exercise, induced vomiting and purgation, and use of appetite suppressants and diuretic
Eating disorders are not a choice but are serious mental illnesses and can significantly impact all aspects of a person’s life – physical, emotional, and social. The earlier an eating disorder is identified and a person can access treatment, the greater the opportunity for recovery or improved quality of life.
Anorexia Nervosa Diagnosis
No objective test—such as bloodwork or an X-ray—can definitively point to an eating disorder. Instead, a doctor makes the diagnosis based on a person’s symptoms. To diagnose anorexia, the doctor will ask about the person’s symptoms, and they may also ask family members and other loved ones about their observations. If a doctor believes that a person has anorexia, they will attempt to diagnose the type. One type primarily involves restricting food intake, while another involves episodes of overeating and purging. If the person has experienced at least one of these episodes in the past 3 months, the doctor will likely diagnose binge eating and purging anorexia.
Diagnostic instruments in the form of questionaires are used. Few of them are as follows:
• Structured Inventory for Anorexic and Bulimic Eating Disorders Self-Report (SIAB-S)
• Munich Eating and Feeding Disorder Questionnaire (Munich ED-Quest)
• Eating Disorder Examination-Questionnaire for children (ChEDE-Q)
• The SCOFF questionnaire

Anorexia nervosa Treatment
Treatment for anorexia must address both psychological and physical problems. The treatment team should include a mental health professional and a primary care doctor.
Successful treatment usually includes continuous medical care, regular therapy, nutritional counseling, and medication. Although certain antidepressants are sometimes used to treat anorexia, they are not always effective, and no medication is FDA approved to treat it. Doctors should pay attention to bone loss, electrolyte levels in the blood, and heart function. Psychologists and other mental health professionals can help a person let go of self-destructive thoughts and behaviors and adopt a more positive outlook. Support groups of other recovering anorexics -- when properly moderated by a mental health professional -- can also be very helpful. Treatment usually is successful, but it does not work overnight. Long-term psychological and medical attention usually is needed.

Anorexia nervosa Epidemiology
The disease epidemiology covered in the report provides historical as well as forecasted epidemiology segmented by total prevalent cases of anorexia nervosa, diagnosed prevalent cases of anorexia nervosa and gender-specific diagnosed prevalent cases of anorexia nervosa scenario of anorexia nervosa in the 7MM covering the United States, EU5 countries (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom) and Japan from 2019 to 2032.

Key Findings
• Total prevalent cases of anorexia nervosa in the 7MM were found to be approximately 1,692,817 in 2021. These cases are expected to increase by 2032 at a CAGR of 0.3% during the study period (2019–2032).
• Among 7MM, the United States has the highest prevalent cases of anorexia nervosa with 703,497 cases in 2021.
• The total diagnosed prevalent cases of anorexia nervosa in the 7MM were observed to be 812,552 in 2021. These cases are expected to increase during the study period (2019–2032).
• Among the European countries, Germany had the highest diagnosed prevalent population of Anorexia nervosa with 86,928 cases, followed by the UK with 69,732 cases in 2021. On the other hand, Spain had the lowest diagnosed prevalent population.
• In Japan, 128,408 diagnosed prevalent cases of anorexia nervosa were recorded in the year 2021.
• As per assessment, for anorexia nervosa, the gender-specific distribution of the disease suggests females at a higher count with 763,335 cases in the 7MM, in 2021.

It also helps to understand the anorexia nervosa clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, approval, and patent details of each included drug, and the latest news and press releases.

Anorexia nervosa Emerging Drugs
Psilocybin: COMPASS Pathways
Psilocybin is a serotonin 2 receptor agonist, being developed by COMPASS Pathways, for treatment-resistant depression, including major depressive disorder, depressive disorders, bipolar depression, body dysmorphic disorder (somatoform disorders in developmental table), and anorexia nervosa. It is an active ingredient in some species of mushrooms, often referred to as ‘magic mushrooms. Currently, a Phase II trial is expected to complete in 2022 showing the effect of psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy in patients with AN.
Ketamine: Homeostasis Therapeutics, LLC
Ketamine has rapid antidepressant effects, which are hypothesized to occur via increases in glutamate, with sequelae including increased neuroplasticity, neurogenesis, and synaptogenesis. It is an N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAr) antagonist, recently been approved for treatment-resistant depression, exerting rapid and robust antidepressant effects. It is now being investigated for several indications, including obsessive-compulsive, post-traumatic, and substance use disorder, and shows trans diagnostic potential for EDs, particularly among clinical nonresponders.

Anorexia nervosa Market Outlook
Anorexia Nervosa (AN) has a diverse genetic disposition as well as is being determined by life phases such as puberty, problems in the family or with peers, trauma, and personality traits such as low self-esteem. It is characterized by extreme food restriction and an intense fear of gaining weight. Treatment usually involves several strategies, including psychological therapy, nutritional counseling, and/or hospitalization.
Treatment plans are tailored to individual needs and may include one or more of the following:
• The individual, group, and/or family psychotherapy
• Medical care and monitoring
• Nutritional counseling
• Medications
Psychotherapies generally include Family-based treatment (FBT), Eating disorder-focused, Adolescent-focused psychotherapy, and others
Medications such as antidepressants, antipsychotics, or mood stabilizers may also be helpful for the treatment of eating disorders and other co-occurring illnesses such as anxiety or depression. Medications like olanzapine, aripiprazole, and dronabinol are generally used to manage the patients, but there is no standard therapy available. Quetiapine is an atypical antipsychotic that, in low dose, can help with both psychological and physical improvements, with minimal associated side effects, and appears to be a promising candidate for the treatment of AN. Prozac can help with depressive symptoms and potentially with healthy weight maintenance once weight restoration is achieved. Prozac is part of the SSRI family or the selective serotonin uptake inhibitors that assist with increased serotonin levels connected to mood.
