Frailty status in older adults is related to alterations in indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1 and guanosine triphosphate cyclohydrolase I enzymatic pathways
(Elsevier para AMDA (The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Cara Medicine), 2017-08-08)
Effects of degree of urbanization and lifetime longest-held occupation on cognitive impairment prevalence in an older spanish population
[Abstract] Our aim was to estimate the prevalence of cognitive impairment in rural and urban elderly populations and to examine the relationship between lifetime occupation and general cognitive performance. A cross-sectional ...
Is salivary chromogranin A a valid psychological stress biomarker during sensory stimulation in people with advanced dementia?
(IOS Press, 2016-12-20)
[Abstract] Salivary chromogranin A (sCgA) is gaining attention as a biomarker of psychological stress. The objective of this work was to determine whether individualized music intervention and multisensory stimulation ...
Immune biomarkers in older adults: role of physical activity
(Taylor & Francis, 2017-05-19)
[Abstract] Aging is associated with a decline in the normal functioning of the immune system. Several studies described the relationship between immunological alterations, including immunosenescence and inflammation, and ...
Lymphocyte subsets in a population of nonfrail elderly individuals
(Taylor & Francis, 2015-07-13)
[Abstract] Age-related frailty is characterized by increased vulnerability to stress due to decline in homeostatic reserve, which results in increased risk of adverse health outcomes including disability, hospitalization, ...
Frailty syndrome and genomic instability in older adults: suitability of the cytome micronucleus assay as a diagnostic tool
[Abstract] Frailty, a condition involving increased risk of disability and mortality in older adults, has emerged as a reliable way to predict the effect of aging. Genomic instability may help to anticipate recognition of ...
Frailty in older adults Is associated with plasma concentrations of inflammatory mediators but not with lymphocyte subpopulations
[Abstract] Frailty denotes a multidimensional syndrome that gives rise to vulnerability to stressors and leads to an increase of the age-related decline of different physiological systems and cognitive abilities. Aging-related ...
Exploring genetic outcomes as frailty biomakers
[Abstract] Frailty has emerged as a reliable measure of the aging process. Because the early detection of frailty is crucial to prevent or even revert it, the use of biomarkers would allow an earlier and more objective ...
Prescribed medication and malnourishment at risk of malnutrition
Reference ranges of lymphocyte subsets in non-frail older adults
