There is continuous ageing in world population. Although life expectancy still increases there is no similar trend in maintaining quality of life. The number of disabilities due to age is expected to double in 2060. Muscle mass is one of the most important factors of health and nutrition in old age and it constant loss is characteristic for process of ageing. Muscle mass is controlled by number of different factors. The most important of which is balance between muscle protein synthesis and degradation. Age...
Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are characterised by low skeletal muscle mass that negatively impacts physical performance. Operational definitions of "low muscle mass" are inconsistent, and it is unknown how different skeletal muscle mass indices affect the relationship between muscle mass and physical function.
Sarcopenia is a harmful condition in patients with chronic liver disease. However, the evaluation of body muscle mass requires expensive instrumentation. The sarcopenia index (SI): (creatinine (Cr)/cystatin C (CysC) × 100) has been reported to correlate with muscle volume. A calculated body muscle mass (CBMM) using Cr, CysC, and body weight (BW) also correlates with muscle mass. We evaluated the applicability of using SIs and CBMMs as screening methods for sarcopenia.
Current data suggest that low skeletal muscle mass provides prognostic information in patients with cancer and may even be considered a biomarker in research and clinical evaluations. The aim of this systematic review was to explore whether low muscle mass is associated with overall survival (OS) in patients with incurable cancer. A systematic search was conducted for published literature using PubMed/MEDLINE, Scopus, LILACS, and the Cochrane Library, with no restrictions on language or publication date, to...
Aging is associated with low muscle mass and has been linked to adverse health outcomes. The objectives of this cross-sectional study were: (1) to describe anthropometry, body composition, appendicular skeletal muscle mass index (ASMI; appendicular skeletal muscle mass/height2), and prevalence of low ASMI in older people with normal nutritional status (Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool score = 0); (2) to determine factors associated with ASMI, and odds ratios of having low ASMI.
Age-related skeletal muscle atrophy is a very common and serious condition that remains poorly understood at the molecular level. Several lines of evidence have suggested that the tumor suppressor p53 may play a central, causative role in skeletal muscle aging, whereas other, apparently contradictory lines of evidence have suggested that p53 may be critical for normal skeletal muscle function. To help address these issues, we performed an aging study in male muscle-specific p53 knockout mice (p53 mKO mice),...
Calf circumference (CC) is an indirect method used to evaluate muscle mass in older adults. Ultrasound has also been studied as a method for measuring muscle mass. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to correlate CC and muscle thickness of the medial gastrocnemius muscle (MGM) in healthy older women.
To investigate the relations of balance to muscle mass (MM) and muscle strength (MS), depending on age and physical activity, which is of particular importance to functional independence in older people.
Aube, D, Wadhi, T, Rauch, J, Anand, A, Barakat, C, Pearson, J, Bradshaw, J, Zazzo, S, Ugrinowitsch, C, and De Souza, EO. Progressive resistance training volume: effects on muscle thickness, mass, and strength adaptations in resistance-trained individuals. J Strength Cond Res XX(X): 000-000, 2020-This study investigated the effects of 12-SET, 18-SET, and 24-SET lower-body weekly sets on muscle strength and mass accretion. Thirty-five resistance-trained individuals (one repetition maximum [1RM] squat: body ma...
Psoas muscle mass is a surrogate marker for sarcopenia: a depletion of skeletal muscle mass. This study was conducted to elucidate the prognostic significance of the psoas muscle index (PMI: cross-sectional area of the bilateral psoas muscle at the umbilical level on computed tomography/height [cm/m]) in patients undergoing surgery for lung squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and lung adenocarcinoma (ADC).
To investigate the effect of muscle strength exercise training (MSET) on lean mass (LM) gain and muscle hypertrophy in older patients with lower limb osteoarthritis (OA).
Skeletal muscle and fat mass indexes have emerged as easily obtained, objective and useful tools to assess susceptibility to unfavorable postoperative outcomes. We examined the association between skeletal muscle and fat mass indexes, and the discharge disposition after radical cystectomy.
Skeletal muscle wasting is associated with many chronic diseases. Effective prevention and treatment of muscle wasting remain as a challenging task due to incomplete understanding of mechanisms by which muscle mass is maintained and regulated. This study investigated the functional role of Ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase L1 (UCHL1) in skeletal muscle.
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) followed by surgery is a promising treatment strategy for patients with advanced gastric cancer. Severe toxicity associated with the treatment may reduce the dose intensity of chemotherapy, resulting in the effect of chemotherapy being attenuated. Recently, skeletal muscle mass has been reported to be associated with the treatment outcomes of cancer patients. The purpose of this study was to clarify whether pretreatment skeletal muscle mass is a predictor of adverse events as ...
We examined the association of muscle mass and muscle strength with insulin resistance, focusing on lower limb muscles.
Carboplatin is a chemotherapy drug used to treat solid tumors but also causes bone loss and muscle atrophy and weakness. Bone loss contributes to muscle weakness through bone-muscle crosstalk which is prevented with the bisphosphonate zoledronic acid (ZA). We treated mice with carboplatin in the presence or absence of ZA to assess the impact of bone resorption on muscle. Carboplatin caused loss of body weight, muscle mass, and bone mass, and also led to muscle weakness as early as 7 days after treatment. ...
Quantification of abdominal muscle mass by cross-sectional imaging has been increasingly used to diagnose sarcopenia; however, the technical method for quantification has not been standardized yet. We aimed to determine an optimal method to measure the abdominal muscle area.
Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) caused by mutations affecting the extracellular matrix protein collagen type I is characterized by fragile bones and low muscle mass and function. Activin A and myostatin, members of the TGF-β superfamily, play a key role in the control of muscle mass and in muscle-bone communication. Here we investigated activin A/myostatin signaling in a mouse model of severe dominant OI, Col1a1mouse, and the effect of activin A/myostatin inhibition by a soluble activin receptor IIB receptor,...
Despite no international consensus on the diagnostic criteria for sarcopenia, low lean mass, muscle strength, and physical function are important risk factors for disability, frailty, and mortality in older individuals, as well as in a wide range of patients with muscle loss. Here, we provide a population-based reference material of total and regional lean body mass, muscle strength/power parameters, and physical function in a healthy cohort of Danish men and women across the lifespan.
Cirrhosis is often complicated by reduced muscle mass and strength, which limits the ability to perform daily activities and affects quality of life. Resistance training can increase muscle strength and mass in elderly and chronically ill patients. We performed a randomized controlled trial to investigate whether resistance training increases muscle strength and size in patients with compensated cirrhosis.
Accurate assessments of muscle mass in patients with cirrhosis are necessary in clinical practice. Computed tomography (CT) of the upper abdomen has been proposed as a useful method for quantifying muscle mass. Recently, Carey et al developed specific cutoffs for muscle wasting based on the skeletal muscle index at the L3 vertebra (L3-SMI) for cirrhotic patients. The aim of the present study was to assess the concurrent validity of the newly proposed cutoffs of Carey et al, along with others widely used in ...
Several controlled trials have demonstrated the rapid effects of intravenous ketamine. As a result, the use of this off-label treatment has grown exponentially in recent years. This use is expected to continue to grow after the approval by the US Food and Drug Administration of intranasal esketamine for treatment-resistant depression-a decision that firmly establishes N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA)-receptor antagonism as a valid antidepressant mechanism of action in the public view. The limitation, however, of...
Lower-load (LL), higher-repetition resistance exercise training (RET) can increase muscle mass similar degree as higher-load (HL), lower-repetition RET. However, little is known about how LL and HL RET modulate other aspects of the RET phenotype such as satellite cells, myonuclei, and mitochondrial proteins. We aimed to investigate changes in muscle mass, muscle strength, satellite cell activity, myonuclear addition, and mitochondrial protein content following prolonged RET with LL and HL RET.
Low handgrip strength (HGS) is a measure of poor skeletal muscle performance and a marker of ill health and frailty. Muscle quality (MQ) is a measure of muscle strength relative to muscle mass. We aimed to develop normative data for HGS and MQ, report age-related prevalence of low HGS and MQ, and determine the relationship with age, anthropometry, and body composition for women in Australia.
Trauma, burn injury, sepsis and ischemia lead to acute and chronic loss of skeletal muscle mass and function. Healthy muscle is essential for eating, posture, respiration, reproduction, and mobility, as well as for appropriate function of the senses including taste, vision, and hearing. Beyond providing support and contraction, skeletal muscle also exerts essential roles in temperature regulation, metabolism, and overall health. As the primary reservoir for amino acids, skeletal muscle regulates whole-body ...
