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 analyze and summarize the clinical characteristics, surgical outcomes, and prognosis of elderly adults with pituitary adenomas (PAs).
To determine whether older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a condition not previously explored as a risk factor, have more hospitalizations and 30-day readmissions than those with normal cognition.
To examine the distribution and associated predictors of 1-year changes in the Japanese version of the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA-J) in community-dwelling older adults.
To compare the patterns of blood pressure (BP) behavior during orthostasis in individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) with those of controls and to investigate whether orthostatic BP behavior differs between individuals with MCI who convert to dementia and those who do not.
To classify and quantify drug-related problems (DRPs), determine acceptance of DRP recommendations, and assess medication review satisfaction.
In order to determine how often internal medicine and family medicine residents performed specific actions related to the geriatric competencies established by the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) when caring for older hospitalized adults, a cross-sectional anonymous survey of residents at the University of North Carolina, University of Washington, Wake Forest University, Duke University, and Emory University was undertaken. Data on frequency of self-reported behaviors were analyzed, with comparisons made ...
To estimate the all-cause, cardiovascular, and cancer mortality risks associated with serum uric acid levels in elderly adults.
To assess the feasibility of a vitamin D intervention delivered through a Meals-on-Wheels (MOW) program to improve 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) concentrations and reduce falls in homebound older adults.
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.
