The purpose of this study is to better understand the relationship between age and HIV disease progression. This study will explore the possible relationship between age and HIV disease progression. Older age is an important risk factor for faster disease development, but older people may respond better to combination drug therapy. This relationship needs to be understood better.
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: i) better estimate power for a larger trial, ii) establish the safety and potential beneficial effects of acarbose in non-diabetic elderly humans, and iii) determine whether the effects of acarbose on the microbiome likely play a role in its enhancement of longevity and/or healthy aging. Thes...
Aging is the primary risk factor in aging-related dementia. An important initiating factor for the development and progression of cognitive impairment is disruption of the blood-brain barrier (BBB). BBB plays an important role in maintaining normal brain homeostasis and protecting neural tissues from toxins. It is hypothesized that such changes known to be common in aging and can be an early process that precedes Alzheimer's Disease (AD). The microvascular changes related to su...
This project will focus on the development and testing of efficient, cost effective measures that are specifically designed for use in Alzheimer's Disease (AD) primary prevention trials.
The general aim of this study is to establish a longitudinal cohort of older persons in order to examine the physiological, environmental and genetic risk factors for physical disability, frailty, cardiovascular disease, and neuropsychiatric disorders in older persons and to examine the benefit of healthy lifestyles. The findings from this study will provide information necessary for the development of effective health policy for aging people.
The study aims at investigating the role of cyanotic congenital heart disease (cCHD) on brain aging. The investigators assume that due to congenital and acquired cardiovascular abnormalities, cCHD patients could show radiologic (and clinical) signs of precocious brain aging and eventual cognitive decline.
Aging is an independent risk factor, without any clear explanation. The primary aim of the study is to depict the effect of aging on the coagulation fibrinolysis parameters and microparticles.
Investigators propose in this study to evaluate prospective memory (MP) in all its complexity as well as the processes, cognitive and brain, the underlying. Specifically, investigators propose to evaluate the evolution of the MP during normal aging and Alzheimer's disease (AD) to identify the cognitive and brain processes underlying this development. To do this, this study will have to include healthy subjects, 18 to 95 years, patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and ...
During their biological life, proteins undergo molecular aging due to many non-enzymatic post-translational modifications that alter their structural and functional properties. These reactions concern all proteins but especially tissue proteins (whose half-life in the organism can be several decades) and lead to the formation of complex products called PTMDPs ("post-translational modification derived products"). Molecular aging is responsible for the alteration of protein prope...
The aging of skin, especially that of the scalp, is a combination of intrinsic and extrinsic aging factors secondary to the chronic sun exposure. For men with an alopecia genetic (= bald men), the solar part, in skin aging process, is major. The helio-dermal scalp is frequently the site of cancers mainly after 65 years. Objectives are to identify specific biomarkers involved in the photo-aging of the alopecic scalp
The purpose of this study is to test the efficacy of delivering an exercise and healthy lifestyle program, Smart Aging, to older adults.
Cognitive aging is a major source of disability in an increasingly aging population. The paucity of effective treatments for cognitive aging disorders, and most importantly in Alzheimer's disease instigates a need for further research into novel therapeutic possibilities. Alzheimer's disease is the most common neurodegenerative disorder and its prevalence steeply increases. Glutamate-mediated excitotoxicity in neuropsychiatric disorders and in particular in Alzheimer's disease ...
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and is responsible for 30% of all deaths in the United States. This study will examine how risk factors for heart disease in young and middle aged people affect people's health as they grow older.
The purpose of this study is to examine the genetic risk factors for aging associated conditions.
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 the aging contributes to the lack of autonomy and dependence, but also to an increase of the mortality risks. Sarcopenia is also a prevalent condition, because it is detected in 13-24% of 60 years old, and 50% of 80 years old and more. However, strong inter-individual variations of this preva...
With the rapid growth of the global elderly population, the studies of the biomarkers of the sarcopenia and aging are under investigation in different ways. We use Metabolomics to explore the biomarkers of the sarcopenia and aging of the senior adults.
Autophagy is recognized as a central mechanism for the regulation of aging. . Osteoporosis (OA) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) are two forms of pathological aging, sometimes entangled, including an over-risk of OP in AD and degradation of cognitive functions after OP fracture, but the link between These two pathologies remain poorly understood. The aim of this prospective pilot study is to evaluate the level of autophagy of osteocytes (OST) in postmenopausal women with OP and to...
This study will begin to assess the association between perceived stress and enhanced aging in persons living with HIV (PLWH). The investigators suspect this relationship may be mediated by increased aging within the immune system and subsequent low-level inflammation that commonly leads to multiple illnesses and frailty as one ages. The findings from this study will identify potential diagnostic and therapeutic targets to improve the health of aging PLWH which could also apply...
Advanced age is the main risk factor for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's disease and cancer. One reason may be due to decreased resistance to oxidative stress as antioxidant defenses and cell protection is reduced with aging. This has been shown in animal studies and also that the impairment can be somewhat restored with exercise. This will be the first study to test this in humans by comparing young and older inactive adults before...
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 and non-smokers.
Alzheimer's disease (AD) and other forms of dementia are rapidly increasing with the aging of the population, and show a clear preponderance among people with insulin resistance. Metformin, an insulin sensitizer, is being examined in clinical trials as an anti-aging drug. However, very little objective data is available regarding metformin's effect on the brain, a major organ affected by aging.
Cognitive aging and cognitive decline are important public health concerns in an aging US population. The investigators will conduct a randomized controlled trail among healthy older adults to assess effects of four innovative activities on remediation of age-related cognitive decline.
The molecular mechanisms contributing to the development of aortic aneurysmal disease are poorly characterized making actual therapies not sufficient. Autophagy is an intracellular mechanism that removes dysfunctional organelles and unfolded proteins, thereby maintaining cellular homeostasis. Activation of autophagy was shown to limit cardiac damage during stress. Accordingly, autophagy was found to be inhibited in the heart in animal models of metabolic syndrome, diabetes, obe...
The investigators propose to study the effect of aging on the neural circuitry involved in valuation and value reasoning and to relate it to choice anomalies and inconsistencies. Quantifying and characterizing valuation-based decision-making deficits in older adults, and their relationship to the aging brain, can inform and facilitate intervention - both at the level of the individual and at the level of policy.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether exercise alters the way in which the body stores and breaks down fat. A second objective is to evaluate how these effects are influenced by your age and gender. These studies are important because aging, male gender, and menopause are associated with an increased storage of abdominal fat which is frequently accompanied by diabetes, a high blood cholesterol level, high blood pressure and greater risks of heart attack, stroke, a...
