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.
Physical activity (PA) reduces the rate of mobility disability, compared with health education (HE), in at risk older adults. It is important to understand aspects of performance contributing to this benefit.
Extended validation of an index predicting mortality among community-dwelling US older adults.
Braden score is a routine assessment of pressure ulcer risk hypothesized to identify the frail phenotype.
To determine the effectiveness of a multifaceted quality improvement intervention in outpatient clinics at an integrated healthcare delivery system on capture rate of advance directives (ADs) in the electronic medical record (EMR).
To examine the association between long-term metformin therapy and serum vitamin B12 monitoring.
Little data are available to compare coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) vs percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stents (DES) in older adults. We evaluate the long-term outcomes of CABG vs PCI with DES in older adults with left main or multivessel coronary artery disease (CAD).
To determine whether oral health status predicts depressive symptoms in older Japanese people.
Brain MRI-markers are risk factors of dementia and decline in cognition and daily functioning. It is unknown to what extent the associations of brain MRI-markers with cognition and daily functioning are part of the pathway leading to dementia. We aimed to investigate associations of brain MRI-markers with change in cognition and daily functioning during 15 years of follow-up, including their relation to dementia.
Delirium is a common problem associated with substantial morbidity and increased mortality. However, the brain dysfunction that leads some individuals to develop delirium in response to stressors is unclear. In this article, we briefly review the neurophysiologic literature characterizing the changes in brain function that occur in delirium, and in other cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer's disease. Based on this literature, we propose a conceptual model for delirium. We propose that delirium results fro...
Deaths occurring at home are increasing in the United States. Primary care physicians and trainees may not be explicitly taught about management of deaths in the home. Physician responsibilities for expected and unexpected deaths at home are summarized. The medical examiner should be contacted if death was due to natural disease processes but occurred suddenly or when a physician was not treating the decedent. Police and emergency personnel are often called after terminally ill individuals have died at home...
Nursing home (NH) residents who require assistance during mealtimes are at risk for malnutrition. Supportive handfeeding is recommended, yet there is limited evidence supporting use of a specific handfeeding technique to increase meal intake.
To examine the association between midlife cardiovascular health and physical performance 25 years later.
To understand the range of symptoms that present to family caregivers of community-dwelling persons with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD).
To develop and validate the Dental Activities Test (DAT), a clinical tool for measuring dentally related function in cognitively impaired older adults.
To investigate whether the implementation of the Observational Pain Management Protocol (Protocol) can improve pain management for nursing home residents with dementia.
To examine 6-month change in life-space mobility as a predictor of subsequent 6-month mortality in community-dwelling older adults.
Cerebral microvascular disease is considered to contribute to cognitive dysfunction. We opted to explore whether albuminuria, a marker of systemic microangiopathy, is associated with cognitive impairment, dementia, and cognitive function.
To perform an economic evaluation of a primary care-based physical activity counseling intervention that improved physical activity levels and rapid gait speed in older veterans.
