Gender-dependent association of body mass index and waist circumference with disability in the Chinese oldest old.
(Obesity (Silver Spring), 2014-08)
OBJECTIVES: To explore associations of BMI and waist circumference (WC) with disability among the Chinese oldest old. METHODS: The 5,495 oldest old in the sixth wave of Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Study conducted ...
Quantification of the whole-body burden of radiographic osteoarthritis using factor analysis.
(Arthritis Res Ther, 2011)
INTRODUCTION: Although osteoarthritis (OA) commonly involves multiple joints, no widely accepted method for quantifying whole-body OA burden exists. Therefore, our aim was to apply factor analytic methods to radiographic ...
Patellar skin surface temperature by thermography reflects knee osteoarthritis severity.
(Clin Med Insights Arthritis Musculoskelet Disord, 2010-10-15)
BACKGROUND: Digital infrared thermal imaging is a means of measuring the heat radiated from the skin surface. Our goal was to develop and assess the reproducibility of serial infrared measurements of the knee and to assess ...
Genome-wide linkage analysis of cardiovascular disease biomarkers in a large, multigenerational family.
(PLoS One, 2013)
Given the importance of cardiovascular disease (CVD) to public health and the demonstrated heritability of both disease status and its related risk factors, identifying the genetic variation underlying these susceptibilities ...
Relationships amongst osteoarthritis biomarkers, dynamic knee joint load, and exercise: results from a randomized controlled pilot study.
(BMC Musculoskelet Disord, 2013-03-27)
BACKGROUND: Little is known about the relationships of circulating levels of biomarkers of cartilage degradation with biomechanical outcomes relevant to knee osteoarthritis (OA) or biomarker changes following non-pharmacological ...
Collagen biomarkers for arthritis applications.
(Biomark Insights, 2007-02-07)
Novel Genetic Variants for Cartilage Thickness and Hip Osteoarthritis.
(PLoS Genet, 2016-10)
Osteoarthritis is one of the most frequent and disabling diseases of the elderly. Only few genetic variants have been identified for osteoarthritis, which is partly due to large phenotype heterogeneity. To reduce heterogeneity, ...
First qualification study of serum biomarkers as indicators of total body burden of osteoarthritis.
(PLoS One, 2010-03-17)
BACKGROUND: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a debilitating chronic multijoint disease of global proportions. OA presence and severity is usually documented by x-ray imaging but whole body imaging is impractical due to radiation exposure, ...
Amino acid racemization reveals differential protein turnover in osteoarthritic articular and meniscal cartilages.
(Arthritis Res Ther, 2009)
INTRODUCTION: Certain amino acids within proteins have been reported to change from the L form to the D form over time. This process is known as racemization and is most likely to occur in long-lived low-turnover tissues ...
