Neuroscience and oncology were common themes in November’s publications. In neurology, most studies used metabolomics to investigate how lifestyle choices (smoking, diet, social isolation) impact disease mechanisms. One study combined AI with metabolomics to predict myalgic encephalomyelitis and chronic fatigue syndrome. These studies contribute to the understanding of neurological conditions, providing insights into the complex interplay between genetics, environment, and metabolic processes in diseases like ME/CFS, stress-related responses, and neurodegenerative disorders. In oncology, disease prediction was also a topic, as well as disease mechanisms, investigated via the study of functional genomics. Collectively, these studies provide insights into the intricate metabolic pathways and microbial contributions to various types of cancer, contributing to the ongoing efforts in developing targeted therapeutic strategies and early detection methods. Improved and personalized therapeutics continue to be highly sought after in oncology, goals toward which metabolomics can contribute.

These topics are representative of a larger goal across research, medicine, and wellness. How can we identify contributors to disease, modify system input, or change disease outcomes? Whether we are changing lifestyles (diet) or the environment (regulating industries to reduce human exposure), metabolomics can help guide the way in determining the most relevant contributors so that we can make wise decisions about what needs to be changed to improve human health and well-being.
