Introduction to Eating Disorder Research Library

Welcome to Volume 5 of the Eating Disorder Research Library. The primary goal of this newsletter is to provide professionals, patients and families with an update of the most recent research on eating disorders. Each quarterly issue will provide a listing of all indexed research that has occurred in the previous three months with a quick link to an abstract of the article or full text.  Articles are grouped by subject matter to facilitate easy access. We have also created a “Spotlight” section that provides brief reviews of some articles of particular interest. We hope that providing easy access to the basic research in the field will enhance greater use of evidence based information among professionals and greater awareness of the science of the field for patients and families.

Elizabeth WassenaarRepetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation 

 Reviewed by Elizabeth Wassenaar, MD

Dalton, B., Bartholdy, S., McClelland, J., Kekic, M., Rennalls, S. J., Werthmann, J., . . . Schmidt, U. (2018). Randomised controlled feasibility trial of real versus sham repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation treatment in adults with severe and enduring anorexia nervosa: the TIARA study. BMJ Open, 8(7), e021531.


Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a relatively new non-invasive neuromodulatory treatment for severe mental illness.  Initially approved for treatment-resistant depression, TMS is now being evaluated for efficacy in other mental illness, including OCD and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Repetitive TMS (rTMS) acts by delivering magnetic pulses to specific areas of the brain and has been shown to potentially change cortical activity and increase neuroplasticity.  In severe, enduring anorexia nervosa (SE-AN) effective treatment interventions have been limited.  rTMS is being evaluated as a viable treatment option for these most severely ill patients. As a treatment, it is promising because it does not require compliance with daily medication, it is a time-limited intervention, and it is not contingent on weight restoration for efficacy.

In this study, patients with AN-SE, defined here as having AN for greater than three years, having fully completed one previous treatment course, were recruited for a one-month treatment course. Patients had to be relatively medically stable, without a history of seizures, and with a BMI >14.  This study compared daily treatments of active treatment targeted to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) to sham treatment. The DLPFC was targeted because it has been noted that hypoactivity in the region is associated with rigidity and poor reward response.

The initial results from this study were promising.  No patients withdrew from the study due to side effects of TMS and the primary difficult with intervention was necessity of daily visits to receive the treatment.  Although AN-SE was defined as have the disease for greater than three years, the patient population that participated were patients in their late 20’s-early 30’s with an approximately 14-year duration of disease and with BMI around 16.

At four-month follow up, positive changes in mood, obsessive compulsive symptoms and quality of life scores were noted. Although there were only small changes in eating disorder targets or BMI, both measures also favored rTMS intervention. 

Why is This Important?
At this time, TMS is usually considered an intervention after other interventions, pharmacologic and therapeutic, have failed.  However, perhaps the future holds a time when non-invasive neuromodulatory interventions can prepare the mind for the psychological and medical treatments that effect lasting change in severe eating disorders.

Heather DlugoszKetamine and Activity-Based Anorexia

Chen, Y. W., Sherpa, A. D., & Aoki, C. (2018). Single injection of ketamine during mid‐adolescence promotes long‐lasting resilience to activity‐based anorexia of female mice by increasing food intake and attenuating hyperactivity as well as anxiety‐like behavior. International Journal of Eating Disorders, 51(8), 1020-1025.


Anorexia Nervosa has the highest mortality of any psychiatric illness (Crow et al. 2009), functional impacts that rival schizophrenia (Streigel-Moore et al. 2000) and is without any current FDA approved pharmacologic treatment options.  The importance of research focused in pharmacologic interventions to help treat Anorexia Nervosa is imperative.  In this study, researchers tested the effects of a single dose of Ketamine on female adolescent mice to developing activity based anorexia (ABA).  Activity based anorexia (ABA) is a model in animals that captures the key features of anorexia including excessive voluntary exercise, food restriction, weight loss severity and increased anxiety following weight recovery. Vulnerability to activity based anorexia can be quantified by increased wheel exercise activity following food restriction which contributes to weight loss and prolonged stress-induced anxiety-like behavior in recovered animals that have been fully weight restored.

Ketamine was selected in this study given it has recently received increased attention related to its reduction of acute suicidality following a single dose (Lee et al. 2015), quick antidepressant effects, and its anxiolytic effects in humans and animals (Yi-Wen Chen et al. 2018).  Ketamine works to non-competitively block the action of the N-Methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor found in never cells. In adolescent female mice exposed to activity based anorexia, there are brain changes in the regions that are involved in regulating anxiety including the dorsal and ventral hippocampus.  In the dorsal hippocampus, a mouse’s vulnerability to developing anxiety based anorexia based on weight loss correlates to increased levels of specific subunits of the NMDA receptor (Chen, Actor-Engel et al. 2017). In the study, researchers therefore, hypothesized whether a single dose of Ketamine could decrease vulnerability to the development of activity based anorexia based on the mechanism of action of Ketamine on the subunits of the NMDA receptor.

Adolescent female mice underwent activity based anorexia induction by exposing them to food restriction in mid adolescence followed by a recovery period and then food restriction again in late adolescence followed by a second recovery period. 2 varying doses of Ketamine (3 or 30mg) were administered once during the 1st period of food restriction.  They measured food consumption, body weight, wheel running activity daily and anxiety-like behaviors with a specialized maze test.

Results showed that the 30mg dose of Ketamine increased food intake compared to controls during the 1st restriction period, facilitated weight gain in the 1st period of recovery and in the 2nd restriction period increased food intake and weight gain in the feeding hours. At the end of the 2nd restriction period, the group receiving the higher dose of Ketamine showed marginally less weight loss compared to the controls. Both Ketamine groups also showed reduced wheel running activity compared to controls and reduced anxiety-like behaviors. In the second recovery period, both Ketamine groups gained more weight than the control group.

Why is This important?
This study demonstrates that a single higher dose of Ketamine supports a reduction in susceptibility to activity based anorexia exposure effects in female mice.  The observed effects of Ketamine create hope for its utility in supporting resilience to recurrence of activity based anorexia. With no current psychopharmacologic treatments for Anorexia Nervosa, positive studies like this one will encourage further research in humans.

Millie PlotkinDefining Recovery 

Reviewed by Millie Plotkin, MLS

Bardone-Cone, A. M., Hunt, R. A., & Watson, H. J. (2018). An overview of conceptualizations of eating disorder recovery, recent findings, and future directions. Current Psychiatry Reports, 20(9), 79.


This article reviews the literature on concepts and operationalization of eating disorder recovery, focusing on publications since 2016. The authors discuss the varied measures used to quantify research on recovery, which may include BMI, abstinence from behaviors, improvement of body image disturbances, and/or psychiatric status. They identify the conflicts in defining recovery, such as minimum duration of abstinence, lack of diversity in samples, predictors of successful recovery, and neurobiological markers. Lastly, the authors propose future directions for bringing the field together to create a consensus on defining recovery.

Why is This Important?
Despite the fact that the end goal of treatment for eating disorders is full recovery, the field has not come agreement on how to define what “recovery” is. Attempts to create meaningful measures have often not included patient perspectives in the discussions. This has led to definitions focusing more on the physical and behavioral aspects of recovery, while minimizing or leaving out the role of psychological/cognitive recovery. Patients identified as recovered by these measures while still retaining disordered cognitions are more likely to relapse. Attempts to determine treatment effectiveness lose meaning when different studies do not have consistency in criteria.

It is notable that this article does not include the controversy about whether weight loss should be included in defining recovery from binge eating disorder. However, the authors point out that the vast majority of studies on recovery are only looking at patients with anorexia nervosa. More research on BED will help with identifying key factors in recovery.

Ashley SolomonWeight-Based Victimization

Himmelstein, M. S. & Puhl, R. M. (2018). Weight-based victimization from friends and family: implications for how adolescents cope with weight stigma. Pediatric Obesity. E-publication ahead of print.


As our culture focuses more sharply on issues surrounding both body weight and bullying, increasing attention is being paid to the impact of weight-stigmatization and weight-based victimization on health outcomes. Youth with larger bodies are frequently targets for teasing, bullying, and other forms of aggression. While we most commonly consider peers to be the source of this victimization, research has demonstrated the prevalence of weight-based victimization coming from friends, teachers, and family as well. Understanding how adolescents respond and cope with weight-based victimization is important, as it allows us to develop supportive responses and intervention.

Himmelstein and Puhl’s study examined the coping responses of youth faced with weight-victimization, analyzing how the source of the victimization may impact the style of response. For example, they aimed to understand if adolescents experiencing teasing from friends would cope differently than if they experienced teasing from teachers. They also explored the adolescents’ perceptions of what is most needed to support youth like them facing victimization.

Himmelstein and Puhl utilized a sample of adolescent individuals ages 13 to 18 who were seeking weight loss via a summer camp to examine their coping responses. It should be noted that this sample was not representative of the wider population of youth in larger bodies as it was predominantly white and those attending camp likely had a higher level of resources than others.

The study demonstrated that, not surprisingly, weight was the most reason for teasing most frequently reported by the adolescents. Peers were the most frequent source of this teasing, followed by friends, family members, and then teachers. Boys reported a greater frequency of weight-based victimization from peers compared to girls, while rates of family teasing were equal among boys and girls. Across gender, the authors found that the manner in which youth coped with weight-based teasing did differ based on the source. Weight-based teasing from friends was found to be related to greater negative emotions, such as anger, sadness, and feeling worse about themselves. Meanwhile, adolescents who were most frequently teased by friends and family reported acting indifferent (e.g. doing nothing, ignored it). Girls were more likely than boys to report coping with weight stigma by eating for comfort of binge eating. Lastly, youth with the highest rates of internalized weight bias (directing shame and blame toward self) responded to victimization with increased negative emotions, avoidance behaviors (e.g. skipping school), and coping by eating.

Why is This Important?
These results offer insight into the experiences of youth, and later adults, who experience weight-based victimization as young people. In particular, recognizing and addressing the substantive impact of internalized weight stigma on health and well-being outcomes is crucial. It is also important to recognize that while adolescents may demonstrate more “indifference” to weight stigma by those closest to them, this may be a function of learned helplessness and lead to greater internalization of the bias.

While we are often quick to associate weight with poor health outcomes, we must thoroughly evaluate the mediating role of weight stigma and coping on these outcomes. Notably, adolescents in this study overwhelmingly endorsed “parental support” as the number one need for helping them cope, even among those reporting teasing by family. Families have a vital role to play in helping youth navigate the continuingly hostile world for people of size.
