The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 21 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books. BioPortfolio aims to publish relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with users selected topics.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
To determine the association between hearing impairment and dementia.
The estimated prevalence of subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) in the general population is 3% to 8%. As the average age of the population in the United States and other countries continues to increase, the overall prevalence of SCH may also be expected to increase. Although age-related changes in thyroid function are well described, normal thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) reference limits, derived for age-specific populations, are not routinely used to identify thyroid dysfunction in elderly adults. Therefo...
To compare the effectiveness of chemotherapy in prolonging survival according to age in breast and colon cancer.
To investigate whether changes in death certificate coding and reporting practices explain part or all of the recent increase in the rate of fatal falls in adults aged 65 and older in the United States.
To compare risk-adjusted differences between men and women 30 and 60 days after hip fracture surgery in not walking, ability to return home in a community-dwelling subset, not walking in a nursing home resident subset, and mortality within 60 days.
Multimorbidity (≥2 chronic conditions) affects more than half of all older adults. The American Geriatrics Society developed and published guiding principles for the care of older adults with multimorbidity in 2012. Improved clinician training in caring for older adults with multimorbidity is needed, but it is not clear what opportunities arise within clinical encounters to apply the guiding principles or how clinicians at all stages of training currently practice in this area. This project aimed to chara...
To report prevalence, correlates, and medication management of pain in community-dwelling older adults with dementia.
To examine whether sleep disturbance is associated with poor physical function in older veterans in an adult day healthcare (ADHC) program.
To evaluate whether age is independently associated with greater rate of unanticipated hospital admission within 30 days of ambulatory surgery.
To determine whether physical frailty is associated with low-grade inflammation in older adults with depression, because late-life depression is associated with physical frailty and low-grade inflammation.
To describe transitions in care for older adults with dementia identified from a nationally representative cohort and to describe transition rates in those with more-severe levels of cognitive and functional impairment.
To evaluate the association between performance on a single chair stand and moderate to severe exertional dyspnea.
To assess the association between the use of medications with anticholinergic activity and the subsequent risk of injurious falls in older adults.
To examine the associations between amyloid-β brain deposition and physical activity (PA) in elderly adults without dementia and to investigate whether the association has a dose-response relationship.
To examine the effect of functional impairments in older women with diabetes mellitus (DM) on incident clinical fractures.
To examine whether impaired fasting glucose (IFG) represents an intermediary condition between normal fasting glucose and diabetes mellitus and, specifically, whether elderly adults with IFG have higher disease burden, cardiovascular risk, and systemic inflammation and higher 2-year mortality and incident disease.
To compare the provision of mental health care to older adults with that provided to younger adults.
To assess the financial effect of the 2008 Hospital-Acquired Conditions Initiative (HACI) pressure ulcer payment changes on Medicare, other payers, and hospitals.
To differentiate driving errors in persons with dementia who fail a performance- based road test from errors in persons who pass.
To determine the extent to which proxy respondents can provide reliable reports.
To estimate the prevalence of dysphonia and the effect of several risk factors on vocal quality in a representative population of older adults.
To assess objectively measured daytime physical activity and sleep duration and efficiency in hospitalized older adults and explore associations with demographic characteristics and disease severity.
To identify factors associated with incomplete bladder emptying in older women with overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms.
To investigate whether a 12-week physical and cognitive exercise program can improve cognitive function and brain activation efficiency in community-dwelling older adults.
