The hyperglycemic state is known to shorten the erythrocyte life span. Erythrocyte creatine (EC) reflects the mean erythrocyte age and is useful as an indicator of hemolysis. Here, we studied the rela...
Despite gains in life expectancy between 1992 to 2012, large disparities in life expectancy continue to exist in the United States between subgroups of the population. This study aimed to develop deta...
New therapies for multiple myeloma (MM) have improved life expectancy, but health-related quality of life (HRQoL) data from patients with MM in the real-world setting are lacking. This study, conducte...
Life expectancy is influenced by both innate human self-factors and external environmental factors. Due to the individual difference of self-factors, the external environment impacts on life expectanc...
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is associated with severe comorbidities, but has not previously been subject to a systematic evaluation of mortality risk. We conducted a retrospective registry-based cas...
Investigators will conduct a randomized trial to determine if providing patient-specific life expectancy estimates during treatment counseling via a targeted, patient-centered communicatio...
To determine whether the presence of circulating/disseminated tumor cells (CTCs/DTCs) in the blood and bone marrow of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients with localized disease is a negative ...
This study aims to evaluate a prototype device detecting zinc protoporphyrin-IX fluorescence non-invasively from the intact oral mucosa. Zinc protoporphyrin-IX is an established indicator ...
Aims: To compare the rates of hypotension in patients with malignancy-related ascites undergoing abdominal paracentesis with and without prophylactic intravenous albumin infusion Methodol...
This study will assess the benefits and harms of screening for monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS). The overall and disease-specific mortality will be compared betwee...
The senescence of RED BLOOD CELLS. Lacking the organelles that make protein synthesis possible, the mature erythrocyte is incapable of self-repair, reproduction, and carrying out certain functions performed by other cells. This limits the average life span of an erythrocyte to 120 days.
Deaths that occur before LIFE EXPECTANCY is reached within a given population.
A condition caused by the excessive secretion of ANDROGENS from the ADRENAL CORTEX; the OVARIES; or the TESTES. The clinical significance in males is negligible. In women, the common manifestations are HIRSUTISM and VIRILISM as seen in patients with POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME and ADRENOCORTICAL HYPERFUNCTION.
A figure representing the number of years, based on known statistics, to which any person of a given age may reasonably expect to live.
Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It conducts and supports clinical and basic research to establish a scientific basis for the care of individuals across the life span, from the management of patients during illness and recovery to the reduction of risks for disease and disability; the promotion of healthy lifestyles; the promotion of quality of life in those with chronic illness; and the care for individuals at the end of life. It was established in 1986.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
