Professor Mark Nelson’s research focuses on the diseases of ageing and what can be done to prevent them.

Throughout his career, he has been involved in large-scale community-based clinical trials to investigate the effectiveness of strategies aimed at lowering the risk of cardiovascular and other diseases that particularly affect the elderly.

Professor Nelson is a principal investigator on the ASPREE study, which investigated the effectiveness of aspirin as a preventative therapy. ASPREE is the largest clinical trial ever conducted in Australia. It began 17 years ago, involved nearly 20,000 participants and has received about $100 million in funding.

There had been evidence to indicate that aspirin could lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases – heart attack and stroke – in the elderly and that it could also play a role in preventing cancer and dementia. ‘Some saw it as a wonder drug,’ Professor Nelson says.

However, the results of ASPREE – with three articles published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine in 2018 alone – have been clear: aspirin shows no benefit as a preventative therapy in the healthy elderly. In fact, it may be counter-productive and carries the risk of harmful side effects.

'The importance of high-quality research like this is that you get a definitive answer,’ Professor Nelson says. Previously, there had been a view that all elderly people should be taking aspirin. This research shows that aspirin should only be used for people who have already had a heart attack or a stroke as a way of preventing secondary events, not as a preventative strategy.

Conclusively demonstrating that taking aspirin is not a beneficial preventative strategy is a highly significant result. With elderly people often already taking a range of medications, each additional drug they take increases the risk of harmful interactions between them. ‘This becomes a leading cause of the elderly ending up in hospital rather than a way of keeping them out,’ Professor Nelson says.

Following on from ASPREE, Professor Nelson is also a principal investigator for STAREE. This large-scale clinical trial will use the same methods to evaluate the benefits of taking statins – cholesterol-lowering agents – as a preventative strategy.

'What is innovative about these trials is that we recruit healthy elderly people as the participants. Earlier trials had mostly recruited either middle-aged participants or elderly people who were already in secondary preventive care. But those groups are not the targets of these kinds of preventative strategies.'

For Professor Nelson, clinical trials allow medical researchers to question established practices and get definite answers as to whether they are truly beneficial, ineffective or even harmful.

'It is striking how often your assumptions are proven wrong,’ he says. ‘As a clinician, you can influence the health of maybe two or three thousand people at most, but as a researcher, you can improve the lives of millions.'

Mark Nelson is Professor and Chair, Discipline of General Practice, and Senior Professorial Fellow, Menzies Institute for Medical Research, and an Adjunct Professor, Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, Monash University. He is Medical Director of the Blood Pressure Clinic, MIMR, and is also in general practice in Hobart. His research interests are around large-scale clinical trials of cardiovascular disease prevention in primary care.

Statins in Reducing Events in the Elderly trial (2019 - 2023)$5,815,765
Description
This application seeks support for the Statins in Reducing Events in the Elderly (STAREE) randomised clinical trial based in Australian general practice.STAREE is a large scale primary prevention trial examining whether statin therapy prolongs independent living and reduces cardiovascular events in olderadults (≥70 years) without established vascular disease or diabetes. Despite older age being the strongest determinant of cardiovascular risk, few previousstatin trials have included older adults, and few have investigated whether any statin benefits are offset by adverse effects such as memory loss, myopathy anddevelopment of diabetes, all of which are more prevalent in the elderly. In the context of international debate and interest in STAREE, the trial has nowexpanded its primary outcome to include the internationally accepted composite of disability free survival (death, dementia or disability) and to moreextensively examine the safety of statins for this age group. The trial is well established across 6 Australian states (metropolitan and regional areas) withrecruitment to date of over 2100 general practitioner co-investigators and 3500 participants. Participant recruitment will be completed in 2019 with follow upcontinuing until 2023. This proposal seeks funding to complete the participant follow up and the collection of clinical data essential to confirm and adjudicatethe study endpoints.

A Pilot Dementia Clinical Quality Registry to Improve Dementia Clinical Care (2017 - 2019)$1,571,500
Description
Clinical Quality Registries are powerful and cost-effective tools that promote and monitor the implementation of clinical guidelines into practice. Clinical Quality Registries can improve adherence to guidelines, clinical performance and patient outcomes, as well as facilitate epidemiological research and updates to guidelines. Internationally, many registries for dementia are in operation, some of which have a primary focus on clinical care. The case for an Australian dementia registry, with a clinical care component, is well established, particularly with the imperative to implement the new Clinical Practice Guidelines and Principles of Care for People with Dementia in Australia. However, certain challenges exist for the design and expansion of a registry, including the identification of an epidemiologically sound minimum data set, entry points, and development of a sustainable cost structure for a national roll-out. This proposal seeks funds to pilot a Clinical Quality Dementia Registry to establish procedures, including testing a minimum data set and recruitment strategy, by leveraging a well characterised cohort of older adults with dementia from the ASPirin in Reducing Events in the Elderly (ASPREE) study. ASPREE is a primary prevention study evaluating the role of low dose aspirin in healthy adults aged 70 and over at enrolment. ASPREE has recruited >16,500 Australians, and engaged with >2,000 General Practitioners, across both regional and metropolitan settings in South Eastern Australia. Approximately 800 cases of dementia in this cohort will have occurred by the end of 2017. The pilot will also capitalise on the Monash University School of Public Health and Preventive Medicines unique national expertise and leadership in registry development. Outcomes from this pilot registry will inform and assist in the efficient development of an eventual Australian National Dementia Registry.

ASPREE-D; Aspirin in the prevention of depression in the elderly (2015 - 2018)$767,593
Description
The 2013 Global Burden of Disease study ranks major depression as a principal contributor todisease burden. In almost every other area of health, preventative strategies have made a majordifference to disease incidence, whether it be vaccination for infectious disease, smoking controland lung cancer, clean water and diarrhoeal diseases, or risk factor modification and cardiovasculardisease. In stark contrast to the somatic medical field, psychiatry is almost entirely lacking inevidence based prevention strategies. Preventive interventions in psychiatry mainly consist of litecognitive behaviour type therapy given to individuals with early or emerging symptoms1. Notably,there are no evidence based preventative pharmacotherapies for psychiatric disorders.Current evidence suggests a possible aetiological role for inflammation in the genesis andpathophysiology of depression. Increased mean plasma levels of the inflammatory bloodbiomarkers, tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a), interleukin-6 (IL-6) and C reactive protein(CRP) are found in patients with clinical depression. Inflammation increases with ageing, and wehave shown that elevated levels of these biomarkers are associated with the onset of de-novodepression in the elderly2. The possible link between inflammation and depression raises thequestion of whether the association is causal, and if so, whether pharmacological suppression ofinflammation is effective in preventing depression.ASPREE (ASPirin in Reducing Events in the Elderly) is a NIH and NHMRC supported 5 yearrandomised controlled trial (RCT) of aspirin (100mg daily) or placebo in 19,000 healthy, olderadults, and offers a unique opportunity3 to study the impact of low-dose aspirin on the incidence ofthis condition and to determine whether the relationship between inflammation and depression islikely to be causal. Critically, the existing infrastructure of ASPREE can be leveraged at a relativelyminor cost to determine the utility of aspirin for the prevention of depression in the elderly - ASPREE-D. ASPREE-D is both one of the first trials to explore preventative pharmacotherapy forpsychiatric disorders, and as probably the largest RCT ever in psychiatry, with a sample sizeamply powered to detect the predicted incidence. In addition to examining the efficacy of aspirin inreducing depression in the elderly, ASPREE-D will utilise biomarkers collected in ASPREE toconfirm or refute whether inflammatory biomarkers are risk biomarkers for depression genesis. The primary aim of ASPREE-D is to determine if use of low-dose aspirin reduces the risk of depression in healthy individuals over 65 years of age.

Guidance of Heart Failure Management Programs by Risk Assessment (2013 - 2018)$1,422,739
Description
The aims of this project are to reduce Heart Failure (HF) admissions and costs in Tasmania by: i) using data linkage to identify locations where community service delivery should be targeted, and to evaluate current performance in HF readmission across the State; ii) developing a risk algorithm for HF readmission, including psychosocial determinants; iii) using i) and ii) devising a novel means of providing a disease management program (DMP), titrated to risk assessment, with physiologic assessment used to guide the management of the highest risk patients; iv) developing a clinical trial to define the merits of this approach; v) evaluating the cost-effectiveness of this intervention; vi) presentation of educational activities with community-based providers. A successful intervention is likely to be sustainable. As HF readmissions in Tasmania cost ~4550 bed days/y, the investment in this grant (~$1/2m/y) could be reproduced by a 50% reduction of readmissions.
