The role of lipid-related genes, aging-related processes, and environment in healthspan.
(Aging Cell, 2013-04)
The inherent complexity of aging-related traits can temper progress in unraveling the genetic origins of healthspan. We focus on two generations in the Framingham Heart Study, the original (FHS) and offspring (FHSO) cohorts, ...
Educational interventions to improve recognition of delirium: a systematic review.
(J Am Geriatr Soc, 2013-11)
Delirium is a common and serious condition that is underrecognized in older adults in a variety of healthcare settings. It is poorly recognized because of deficiencies in provider knowledge and its atypical presentation. ...
Food, class, and health: the role of the perceived body in the social reproduction of health.
(Health communication, 2013-05)
The association between social class and cardiovascular health is complex, involving a constant interplay of factors as individuals integrate external information from the media, health care providers, and people they know ...
Driving while aging: a global instrumental activity for the 21st century.

Comorbid substance use disorders with other Axis I and II mental disorders among treatment-seeking Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islanders, and mixed-race people.
(Journal of psychiatric research, 2013-12)
Little is known about behavioral healthcare needs of Asian Americans (AAs), Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islanders (NHs/PIs), and mixed-race people (MRs)-the fastest growing segments of the U.S. population. We examined substance ...
Morbidity risks among older adults with pre-existing age-related diseases.
(Exp Gerontol, 2013-12)
Multi-morbidity is common among older adults; however, for many aging-related diseases there is no information for U.S. elderly population on how earlier-manifested disease affects the risk of another disease manifested ...
The relationship of mental and behavioral disorders to all-cause mortality in a 27-year follow-up of 4 epidemiologic catchment area samples.
(American journal of epidemiology, 2013-11)
Subjects from the Epidemiologic Catchment Area Program, interviewed during 1979-1983, were linked to data in the National Death Index through 2007 to estimate the association of mental and behavioral disorders with death. ...
Does Medicaid pay more to a program of all-inclusive care for the elderly (PACE) than for fee-for-service long-term care?
(J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci, 2013-01)
BACKGROUND: In rebalancing from nursing homes (NHs), states are increasing access of NH-certified dually eligible (Medicare/Medicaid) patients to community waiver programs and Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly ...
Variability in the treatment of elderly patients with stage IIIA (N2) non-small-cell lung cancer.
(J Thorac Oncol, 2013-06)
INTRODUCTION: : We evaluated treatment patterns of elderly patients with stage IIIA (N2) non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS: : The use of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation for patients with stage IIIA (T1-T3N2M0) ...
Genome-wide linkage analysis for human longevity: Genetics of Healthy Aging Study.
(Aging Cell, 2013-04)
Clear evidence exists for heritability of human longevity, and much interest is focused on identifying genes associated with longer lives. To identify such longevity alleles, we performed the largest genome-wide linkage ...
