Recovery and survival from aging-associated diseases.
(Exp Gerontol, 2013-08)
OBJECTIVES: Considering disease incidence to be a main contributor to healthy lifespan of the US elderly population may lead to erroneous conclusions when recovery/long-term remission factors are underestimated. Using two ...
[More people live to be very old and with a better functioning].
(Ugeskr Laeger, 2013-10-07)
Death rates for 80+-year-olds are now half of what they were after WWII. The chance of living past 90 years has gone up by roughly 30% per decade for people born in Denmark in 1895, 1905, and 1915 - and the later cohorts ...
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) ...
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 ...
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, ...
Perceived stress and biological risk: is the link stronger in Russians than in Taiwanese and Americans?
Allostatic load theory implies a relationship between exposure to psychological stress and multi-system physiological dysregulation. We used data from population-based samples of men and women in Russia (Moscow; n = 1800; ...
Optimism and survival: does an optimistic outlook predict better survival at advanced ages? A twelve-year follow-up of Danish nonagenarians.
(Aging Clin Exp Res, 2013-10)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Studies examining predictors of survival among the oldest-old have primarily focused on objective measures, such as physical function and health status. Only a few studies have examined the effect of ...
Driving while aging: a global instrumental activity for the 21st century.
(J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci, 2013-05)
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. ...
Biogenetic mechanisms predisposing to complex phenotypes in parents may function differently in their children.
(J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci, 2013-07)
This study focuses on the participants of the Long Life Family Study to elucidate whether biogenetic mechanisms underlying relationships among heritable complex phenotypes in parents function in the same way for the same ...
