The pre-frail elderly are a population more vulnerable to diminished functionality and future disabilities. Thus, interventions focused on the prevention of sarcopenia are indicated to pre...
Aging generates immune, muscular and functional changes. In the pre-frail elderly these changes may be increased and, therefore, preventive interventions are indicated to minimize the cons...
This study aim to evaluate the effects of 16 weeks of multicomponent training on postural control, cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems in pre-frail elderly through nonlinear and lin...
This is a multi-centre prospective, non-inferiority trial. Patients will be randomized to two treatment groups in a 1:1 ratio and will be stratified by age, Karnofsky Performan...
Primary objective: To evaluate the effects of additional oral nutritional supplement containing β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate (HMB) on thigh muscle mass in elderly subjects with pre-frail ...
The preoperative phase is a potential window of opportunity. Although frail elderly patients are known to be more prone to postoperative complications, they are often not considered capable of accompl...
Frailty and sarcopenia are highly prevalent, as a part of geriatric syndrome, among elderly individuals. However, little is known about how these syndromes can affect elderly individuals who continue ...
The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and red blood cell distribution width (RDW) are important indicators of adverse outcomes and have predictive value for many diseases; however, the relationship...
In older patients lymphoma is a frequent disease and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) represents >60% of all lymphomas. Elderly patients with DLBCL are a heterogeneous population and the definiti...
Little is known whether frailty assessments in mice are capable of distinguishing important characteristics of the frailty syndrome. The goals of this study were to identify the onset and the prevalen...
Older adults or aged individuals who are lacking in general strength and are unusually susceptible to disease or to other infirmity.
Housing arrangements for the elderly or aged, intended to foster independent living. The housing may take the form of group homes or small apartments. It is available to the economically self-supporting but the concept includes housing for the elderly with some physical limitations. The concept should be differentiated from HOMES FOR THE AGED which is restricted to long-term geriatric facilities providing supervised medical and nursing services.
Repetitive visual hallucinations experienced mostly by elderly with diminished visual acuity or visual field loss, with awareness of the fictional nature of their hallucinations. It is not associated with delusions and other sensory hallucinations.
A syndrome in the elderly characterized by proximal joint and muscle pain, high erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and a self-limiting course. Pain is usually accompanied by evidence of an inflammatory reaction. Women are affected twice as commonly as men and Caucasians more frequently than other groups. The condition is frequently associated with GIANT CELL ARTERITIS and some theories pose the possibility that the two diseases arise from a single etiology or even that they are the same entity.
Condition with a variable constellation of phenotypes due to deletion polymorphisms at chromosome location 22q11. It encompasses several syndromes with overlapping abnormalities including the DIGEORGE SYNDROME, VELOCARDIOFACIAL SYNDROME, and CONOTRUNCAL AMOMALY FACE SYNDROME. In addition, variable developmental problems and schizoid features are also associated with this syndrome. (From BMC Med Genet. 2009 Feb 25;10:16) Not all deletions at 22q11 result in the 22q11deletion syndrome.
