Using an operational continuum of healthy aging developed by U.S. researchers, we sought to estimate the prevalence of healthy aging among older Spaniards, inform the development of a definition of he...
Few studies have recommended the essential domains of healthy aging and their relevant measurement to assess healthy aging comprehensively. This review is to fill the gap, by conducting a literature r...
The prevalence of lung conditions, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and pulmonary fibrosis, and lung infections such as pneumonia, increase sharply with age. The physiologic, cellular and...
The expression of certain genes involved in response to oxidative stress is likely related to aging-related outcomes, such as frailty in old age. Given nutrition's substantial impact in aging and age-...
To characterize the distribution of an index of healthy aging-the Chinese Healthy Aging Index (CHAI)-in Chinese adults aged 60 and older according to sociodemographic characteristics and geographic re...
Aging affects almost all the tissues and physiological functions, and skeletal muscle is the most affected organ. The progressive decline of the weight and the muscular function linked to ...
This study addresses a "lifespan approach to healthy development and aging" with direct relevance to humans by testing the anti-aging effects of acarbose in humans. It is a pilot study to:...
In this study, the investigators will investigate and characterize acute medical patients in order to optimize patient courses in the acute care departments, especially with regard to poly...
The process of drug elimination that occurs within the kidneys is complex, and involves filtration, secretion and absorptive mechanisms. Many drugs, metabolites and toxins, including organ...
We are seeking healthy female volunteers to determine if multinutrient supplementation affects visible signs of skin aging as well as blood measurements of aging. We are seeking smokers a...
The development and maintenance of optimal physical, mental, spiritual, and social well-being and function with advancing age.
A loose confederation of computer communication networks around the world. The networks that make up the Internet are connected through several backbone networks. The Internet grew out of the US Government ARPAnet project and was designed to facilitate information exchange.
Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.
The process of aging due to changes in the structure and elasticity of the skin over time. It may be a part of physiological aging or it may be due to the effects of ultraviolet radiation, usually through exposure to sunlight.
A catalytic subunit of the NuA4 histone acetyltransferase complex that functions in transcriptional activation of genes by acetylation of nucleosomal HISTONES H4 and H2A, altering nucleosome-DNA interactions and interaction of the modified histones with other activating transcription factors. It may control gene expression changes associated with oncogene and proto-oncogene mediated growth induction, tumor suppressor mediated growth arrest; CELL AGING; APOPTOSIS; and DNA REPAIR. It is polyubiquitinated and degraded during HIV-1 infection through its interaction with the viral TAT PROTEIN.
