Dr. John Hoffer honoured by Canadian Nutrition Society
The Lady Davis Institute (LDI) of the Jewish General Hospital is proud to congratulate Dr. L. John Hoffer, recipient of the 2012 Khush Jeejeebhoy Award. This award is conferred by the Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS) to Canadians who have made an extraordinary contribution to nutrition research that extends the role and impact of clinical nutrition practice.
As a project director at the LDI, senior physician in internal medicine and endocrinology at the Jewish General Hospital, and Professor of Medicine at McGill University, Dr. Hoffer has devoted his career to studying the impact of malnutrition on disease. An internationally known investigator, he is also a member of the JGH nutritional support team, which consults and organizes the provision of parenteral nutrition therapy for patients who are unable to properly ingest nutrients.

As a researcher, Dr. Hoffer has been a leader in understanding the application of evidence-based nutrition in the clinic. His current research interests include protein and micronutrient deficiencies in hospital settings and the risks and benefits of high dose vitamin C therapy in treating cancer.
Dr. Hoffer will receive the Khush Jeejeebhoy Award and present the plenary lecture at the CNS annual meeting in Vancouver next month.

"About one in five acute-care patients in our hospital have vitamin C levels so low as to be compatible with scurvy," added Hoffer, also a Senior Physician in the Divisions of Internal Medicine and Endocrinology, and a professor of medicine at McGill University. "But patients are rarely given vitamin supplements. Most physicians are simply unaware of the problem. Subclinical deficiencies of vitamin C and D have each been linked to psychological abnormalities, so we examined that aspect in our clinical trial."
"The lack of any effect of vitamin D on mood is good evidence we are not dealing with a placebo response," said Dr. Hoffer. "This looks like a true biological effect. Our finding definitely requires follow up in larger studies in other centres," he said.

"Previous studies, both in our hospital and other centers have shown that most acutely hospitalized patients of subnormal levels of vitamins C and D in the blood," said Dr. L. John Hoffer, MD, Ph.D., a researcher at the Lady Davis Institute for Medical Research.
"About one in five emergency room patients in our hospital is a level of vitamin C, so low as to be compatible with scurvy," said Hoffer, and chief medical officer in the Department of Internal Medicine and Endocrinology, and Professor of Medicine at McGill University. "But patients rarely receive vitamin supplements. Many doctors simply do not know about the problem. Subclinical deficiencies of vitamin C and D have each been associated with psychological disorders, so we examined this aspect in our clinical trials."
"The absence of any effect of vitamin D in a good mood the evidence we are not dealing with a placebo," said Dr. Hoffer.
