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 ...
PATTERNS OF AGING-RELATED DISEASES INCIDENCE AND RECOVERY IN US ELDERLY
Medical cost trajectories and onsets of cancer and noncancer diseases in US elderly population.
(Comput Math Methods Med, 2011)
Time trajectories of medical costs-associated with onset of twelve aging-related cancer and chronic noncancer diseases were analyzed using the National Long-Term Care Survey data linked to Medicare Service Use files. A special ...
Circulatory Diseases in the U.S. Elderly in the Linked National Long-Term Care Survey-Medicare Database: Population-Based Analysis of Incidence, Comorbidity, and Disability.
(Res Aging, 2013-07)
Incidence rates of acute coronary heart disease (ACHD; including myocardial infarction and angina pectoris), stroke, and heart failure (HF) were studied for their age, disability, and comorbidity patterns in the U.S. elderly ...
Cardiovascular comorbidities and survival of lung cancer patients: Medicare data based analysis.
(Lung Cancer, 2017-06-05)
OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the role of cardiovascular disease (CVD) comorbidity in survival of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The impact of seven CVDs (at the time of NSCLC diagnosis ...
Causal effects of time-dependent treatments in older patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
(PLoS One, 2015)
BACKGROUND: Treatment selection for elderly patients with lung cancer must balance the benefits of curative/life-prolonging therapy and the risks of increased mortality due to comorbidities. Lung cancer trials generally ...
IMPACTS OF CEREBROVASCULAR AND NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES ON SURVIVAL OF LUNG CANCER PATIENTS
New stochastic carcinogenesis model with covariates: an approach involving intracellular barrier mechanisms.
(Math Biosci, 2012-03)
In this paper we present a new multiple-pathway stochastic model of carcinogenesis with potential of predicting individual incidence risks on the basis of biomedical measurements. The model incorporates the concept ...
Age patterns of incidence of geriatric disease in the U.S. elderly population: Medicare-based analysis.
(J Am Geriatr Soc, 2012-02)
OBJECTIVES: To use the Medicare Files of Service Use (MFSU) to evaluate patterns in the incidence of aging-related diseases in the U.S. elderly population. DESIGN: Age-specific incidence rates of 19 aging-related diseases ...
