blood saliva urine and stool samples taken every 3 months that measured levels of 643 metabolites and 262 proteins; and physical activity and sleep monitoring The massive data set may have helped people avoid diabetes and other health issues the researchers suggest Indeed Hood intends to move forward with his previously proposed 100K Wellness Project for which he hopes to recruit 100000 people for by 2020 The study also spurred Hood to co-found a company called Arivale which now offers similar services coupled to monthly coaching with a first-year membership price of $3499 Yet not all researchers see the pilot study as a rousing success or justification for people to spend such sums They are taking the collection of personal physiological information “to new heights or depths depending on how you look at it” says Eric Topol director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute in San Diego California Atul Butte a computational biologist and director of the Institute of Computational Health Sciences at the University of California San Francisco notes a “lack of sparkling findings” in the study “All of these tests cost a lot of money and it’s not exactly clear what we are getting out of them yet” he says In the pilot project reported this week in Nature Biotechnology monthly coaching sessions aimed to help the participants understand the data and create plans to address any concerns For instance 95 people had low vitamin D levels 81 had high mercury levels and 52 were considered prediabetic Of all the participants’ measured traits those three improved most significantly across the study as individuals were coached to change diets take vitamin supplements exercise or consult their doctors for medical advice The study also gave participants a Fitbit to track activity and sleep patterns But only 64% of participants used their devices for 40 days or more mirroring the dropoff seen in many studies “This is the best possible cohort of early adopters and even they couldn’t comply” Butte says He adds that’s a potentially foreboding indication of difficulties that lie ahead for the US Precision Medicine Initiative a National Institutes of Health study that will try to similarly track and analyze 1 million people When you see a study like this it is thrilling But when you link it to companies offering this as a service that is where we start getting into trouble Jonathan Berg University of North Carolina School of Medicine Hood and colleagues identify a single participant that most obviously benefitted significantly from the study The tests revealed that then 65-year-old Tayloe Washburn who reported impaired mobility during his family’s hiking trips had high blood levels of the iron-containing protein ferritin and a genetic risk for developing hemochromatosis where high iron levels can damage cartilage in joints Washburn was referred to his physician who linked his cartilage damage to the disease Though Hood’s study deserves credit for taking “oodles of data” across multiple time points the results are “a little soft” to conclude such tracking actually helps many people because there is no control group to compare to Topol says He pointed out similar concerns with the battery of medical tests including genome sequencing and a full-body MRI scan done on presumably healthy people recently described in a study posted online from J Craig Venter’s Health Nucleus company Among the 108 participants in Hood’s study was Clayton Lewis a friend of Hood’s who works at the venture capital firm Maveron While monitored Lewis was training for a triatholon Although he expected “to be the healthiest person in this study” the data indicated he was prediabetic which his personal study coach linked to his metabolism genes and his training diet—low in carbs and high in fats and proteins He also had the highest blood mercury level in the study due to his decades-old dental filling Lewis who is now 58 resolved both issues by incorporating complex carbohydrates into every meal and getting his filling replaced He went on to place 10th in his age group in the race Seeing how the study participants loved “that the data was all about them” Lewis joined with study leaders Nathan Price and Leroy Hood to launch Arivale with Lewis as CEO Now 2 years old Seattle-based Arivale has already enrolled 2500 individuals for tracking and analysis similar to the pilot study with 96% of these participants opting in to let their data be used in research which Hood’s Institute for Systems Biology can pay to access through a licensing agreement Arivale charges $3499 for the first year which gets participants’ genomes sequenced; 30-minute monthly coaching sessions; plus blood saliva and microbiome (a tally of microbes in stool samples) tests—read every 6 months instead of every 3 as in the pilot study—plus a Fitbit Jennifer Lovejoy Arivale’s chief translational science officer describes the company as “a bridge to the medical community” that specializes in analyzing the data so that the personal coaches—all registered dieticians certified nutritionists or registered nurses—can create lifestyle and wellness recommendations “Our coaches do not diagnose or treat We are not providing medical care” she says As such the company has not asked the Food and Drug Administration to review or regulate its offerings The company’s formation has concerned some original fans of the 100K Wellness Project “When you see a study like this it is thrilling But when you link it to companies offering this as a service that is where we start getting into trouble” says Jonathan Berg a physician scientist that studies cancer and genetics at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill “We don’t have any idea at all how this information should be used clinically” he says adding that scientists should be just as ready to reject their hypotheses as prove them Such comments don’t deter Hood from his latest disruptive vision “I think scientific wellness is here to stay” he says “And I think it is going to be a key part in the tipping point that is utterly going to transform the practice of health care and take it from a focus of disease to a focus of wellness” Hood contends that the project’s value will increase with time as more data from a scaled-up study will uncover new signposts for forecasting disease But Butte says more data alone is not enough “We need the informatics people to come up with better ways to analyze it” he says Whether or not you are convinced such digital data sets will improve health and wellness though there’s no denying Topol says that “this whole deep dive into human information is really blossoming” “I don’t want to suggest that popping an antibiotic pill or taking a probiotic is going to be a solution for the disease, initial investigation revealed that she got engaged recently, AAP will do such politics 24X7: Mann When contacted.
