Regional survey of femoral neck fractures. (1/47319)

In the South-west Thames Region 2619 patients (2105 women and 514 men) were discharged with a diagnosis of femoral neck fracture in 1974. The equivalent of a 250-bedded hospital was occupied throughout the year. The incidence, average length of stay, and mortality rate rose with increasing age and there were differences in these indices in the five health areas. These results confirm the enormous burden placed on the hospital service by patients with fracture of the femoral neck but suggest that differences in practice in the five areas may contribute to the size of the problem.  (+info)

Methoxyflurane nephropathy. (3/47319)

Investigations of methoxyflurane-induced nephrotoxicity in man have been extensively aided by the use of an animal model. To be of value the animal model must share similar metabolic pathways with man and have the same clinical manifestations of the diseases process. The Fischer 344 rat appears to meet these criteria. The predominant factors in the production of methoxyflurane nephrotoxicity appear to be high methoxyflurane dosage and serum inorganic fluoride concentration. It is likely that secondary factors include: (1) a high rate of methoxyflurane metabolism and sepsitivity of the kidney to inorganic fluoride toxicity: (2) concurrent treatment with other nephrotoxic drugs; (3) preexisting renal disease; (4) surgery of the urogenital tract, aorta, or renal vasculative; (5) repeat administration of methoxyflurane due to accumulation of inorganic fluoride and, perhaps, methoxyflurane induction of its own metabolism: and (6) concurrent treatment with enzyme-inducing drugs such as phenobarbital.  (+info)

Determination of human body burden baseline date of platinum through autopsy tissue analysis. (4/47319)

Results of analysis for platinum in 97 autopsy sets are presented. Analysis was performed by a specially developed emission spectrochemical method. Almost half of the individuals studied were found to have detectable platinum in one or more tissue samples. Platinum was found to be deposited in 13 of 21 tissue types investigated. Surprisingly high values were observed in subcutaneous fat, previously not considered to be a target site for platinum deposition. These data will serve as a human tissue platinum burden baseline in EPA's Catalyst Research Program.  (+info)

VEGF is required for growth and survival in neonatal mice. (5/47319)

We employed two independent approaches to inactivate the angiogenic protein VEGF in newborn mice: inducible, Cre-loxP- mediated gene targeting, or administration of mFlt(1-3)-IgG, a soluble VEGF receptor chimeric protein. Partial inhibition of VEGF achieved by inducible gene targeting resulted in increased mortality, stunted body growth and impaired organ development, most notably of the liver. Administration of mFlt(1-3)-IgG, which achieves a higher degree of VEGF inhibition, resulted in nearly complete growth arrest and lethality. Ultrastructural analysis documented alterations in endothelial and other cell types. Histological and biochemical changes consistent with liver and renal failure were observed. Endothelial cells isolated from the liver of mFlt(1-3)-IgG-treated neonates demonstrated an increased apoptotic index, indicating that VEGF is required not only for proliferation but also for survival of endothelial cells. However, such treatment resulted in less significant alterations as the animal matured, and the dependence on VEGF was eventually lost some time after the fourth postnatal week. Administration of mFlt(1-3)-IgG to juvenile mice failed to induce apoptosis in liver endothelial cells. Thus, VEGF is essential for growth and survival in early postnatal life. However, in the fully developed animal, VEGF is likely to be involved primarily in active angiogenesis processes such as corpus luteum development.  (+info)

Expression of Bcl-2 protein is decreased in colorectal adenocarcinomas with microsatellite instability. (6/47319)

Bcl-2 is known to inhibit apoptosis and is thought to play a role in colorectal tumour development. Studies of the promoter region of bcl-2 have indicated the presence of a p53 responsive element which downregulates bcl-2 expression. Since p53 is commonly mutated in colorectal cancers, but rarely in those tumours showing microsatellite instability (MSI), the aim of this study was to examine the relationship of bcl-2 protein expression to MSI, as well as to other clinicopathological and molecular variables, in colorectal adenocarcinomas. Expression of bcl-2 was analysed by immunohistochemistry in 71 colorectal cancers which had been previously assigned to three classes depending upon their levels of MSI. MSI-high tumours demonstrated instability in three or more of six microsatellite markers tested, MSI-low tumours in one or two of six, and MSI-null in none of six. Bcl-2 expression in tumours was quantified independently by two pathologists and assigned to one of five categories, with respect to the number of cells which showed positive staining: 0, up to 5%; 1, 6-25%; 2, 26-50%; 3, 51-75%; and 4, > or =76%. Bcl-2 negative tumours were defined as those with a score of 0. Bcl-2 protein expression was tested for association with clinicopathological stage, differentiation level, tumour site, age, sex, survival, evidence of p53 inactivation and MSI level. A significant association was found between bcl-2 expression and patient survival (P = 0.012, Gehan Wilcoxon test). Further, a significant reciprocal relationship was found between bcl-2 expression and the presence of MSI (P = 0.012, Wilcoxon rank sum test). We conclude that bcl-2 expressing colorectal cancers are more likely to be MSI-null, and to be associated with improved patient survival.  (+info)

Accelerated accumulation of somatic mutations in mice deficient in the nucleotide excision repair gene XPA. (7/47319)

Inheritable mutations in nucleotide excision repair (NER) genes cause cancer-prone human disorders, such as xeroderma pigmentosum, which are also characterized by symptoms of accelerated ageing. To study the impact of NER deficiency on mutation accumulation in vivo, mutant frequencies have been determined in liver and brain of 2-16 month old NER deficient XPA-/-, lacZ hybrid mice. While mutant frequencies in liver of 2-month old XPA-/-, lacZ mice were comparable to XPA+/-, lacZ and the lacZ parental strain animals, by 4 months of age mutant frequencies in the XPA-deficient mice were significantly increased by a factor of two and increased further until the age of 16 months. In brain, mutant frequencies were not found to increase with age. These results show that a deficiency in the NER gene XPA causes an accelerated accumulation of somatic mutations in liver but not in brain. This is in keeping with a higher incidence of spontaneous liver tumors reported earlier for XPA-/- mice after about 15 months of age.  (+info)

Dietary intake and practices in the Hong Kong Chinese population. (8/47319)

OBJECTIVES: To examine dietary intake and practices of the adult Hong Kong Chinese population to provide a basis for future public health recommendations with regard to prevention of certain chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and osteoporosis. PARTICIPANTS: Age and sex stratified random sample of the Hong Kong Chinese population aged 25 to 74 years (500 men, 510 women). METHOD: A food frequency method over a one week period was used for nutrient quantification, and a separate questionnaire was used for assessment of dietary habits. Information was obtained by interview. RESULTS: Men had higher intakes of energy and higher nutrient density of vitamin D, monounsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol, but lower nutrient density of protein, many vitamins, calcium, iron, copper, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. There was an age related decrease in energy intake and other nutrients except for vitamin C, sodium, potassium, and percentage of total calorie from carbohydrate, which all increased with age. Approximately 50% of the population had a cholesterol intake of < or = 300 mg; 60% had a fat intake < or = 30% of total energy; and 85% had a percentage of energy from saturated fats < or = 10%; criteria considered desirable for cardiovascular health. Seventy eight per cent of the population had sodium intake values in the range shown to be associated with the age related rise in blood pressure with age. Mean calcium intake was lower than the FAO/WHO recommendations. The awareness of the value of wholemeal bread and polyunsaturated fat spreads was lower in this population compared with that in Australia. There was a marked difference in types of cooking oil compared with Singaporeans, the latter using more coconut/palm/mixed vegetable oils. CONCLUSION: Although the current intake pattern for cardiovascular health for fat, saturated fatty acid, and cholesterol fall within the recommended range for over 50% of the population, follow up surveys to monitor the pattern would be needed. Decreasing salt consumption, increasing calcium intake, and increasing the awareness of the health value of fibre may all be beneficial in the context of chronic disease prevention.  (+info)

Illustration Works/Getty Images). The rich arent just getting richer, but wealthy older Americans are noticeably better-off than their counterparts from three decades ago in several areas like income, employment, home ownership and housing values.. It may be no surprise that older Americans are wealthier than younger ones. But a new study from Pew Research Center analyzed the economic well-being of current older and younger adults to those in the past and found that the age-based wealth gap skyrocketed 47:1 in 2009 compared to 10:1 in 1984.. In 2009, the median net worth of households headed by adults aged 65 and older was 42 percent more than the same age group in 1984. In contrast, the net worth of households headed by an adult under 35 in 2009 was 68 percent less than the same age group in 1984.. "These age-based gaps widened significantly during the sour economy of recent years, but all key trends are several decades old, indicating that they are also linked to long-term demographic, social ...

The cutoff ages for these groups, such as the age from which an individual is considered to be an older person, are then endogenous variables that depend on the entire population age distribution at any given moment. This method is first applied to the age distribution of the United States and subsequently to a group of 12 industrialized countries. The cutoff ages as well as the main indicators of aging are calculated.

Probably because when treating it as continuous they only look for linear regression.. When categorizing in buckets, they probably do an ANOVA. This technique posits that the average does vary per category exactly as measured, and asks the question: If I tell you the category, how much is the variance of your data reduced? If the variance falls a lot (relatively to what it was), it means theres a statistically significant effect between the category and your variable.. And, in their defense, they cant really go fishing for different continuous relationships once they have the data, as thatd reduce their statistical power.. Of interest too is the number of adjustable parameters of the model:. If instead of four age categories you use, say, four hundred, you end up splitting each doctor into one category. The predictive power of that model is greatest, with very good statistical significance, but you have achieved no insight at all.. Similarly when taking age as continuous; if instead of a ...
When a very old patient is admitted to the ICU, we note that age is a risk factor for poor outcomes from virtually every disease. However, reaching an advanced age also says something about the characteristics of the patient, which we may forget.. It is a truism that upon reaching middle age or thereabouts, most patients stop behaving like their calendar age, medically speaking, and start to instead resemble their state of health. There are 50-year-olds who look 100, and 90-year-olds who look 70. We understand this, and when we admit a 60-year-old man with chronic diseases of multiple organs, we acknowledge they have nothing in common with a person of the same age who still runs marathons. Indeed, most of those comorbid individuals do not survive to extreme old age; there are not many 90-year-olds with uncontrolled diabetes, CHF, renal failure, and so on.. Consider the consequences of this. In many ways, very elderly patients (over 85, say-certainly in their 90s and above) are the healthiest ...

BACKGROUND: Nearly all studies have suggested that the use of oral contraceptives (OC) is not associated with the aggregate risk of breast cancer diagnosed in women aged 20-54 years. Because of age-specific differences in the breast cancer-parity relationship and because of age-specific differences in other breast cancer risk factors, the Centers for Disease Control reexamined data from the Cancer and Steroid Hormone Study (CASH) to assess whether OC use has different effects on the risk of breast cancer at different ages of diagnosis. METHODS: This population-based case-control study was designed to examine the relationship between the use of OC and the risk of breast, ovarian, and endometrial cancer. CASH was conducted in eight geographic areas in the United States during 1980-1982. All participants were interviewed at home with a pretested standardized questionnaire including a calendar of life events and a photograph book of all pills marketed in the United States. RESULTS: We found that the

We incorporated behavioral and computational modeling techniques to examine age-based differences in strategy use in two four-choice decision-making tasks. Healthy older (aged 60-82 years) and younger adults (aged 18-23 years) performed one of two decision-making tasks that differed in the degree to which rewards for each option depended on the choices made on previous trials. In the choice-independent task rewards for each choice were not affected by the sequence of previous choices that had been made. In contrast, in the choice-dependent task rewards for each option were based on how often each option had been chosen in the past. We compared the fits of a model that assumes the use of a win-stay-lose-shift (WSLS) heuristic to make decisions, to the fits of a reinforcement-learning (RL) model that compared expected reward values for each option to make decisions. Younger adults were best fit by the RL model, while older adults showed significantly more evidence of being best fit by the WSLS heuristic

Background: Acute lung injury (ALI) is a significant source of morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. Age is a major determinant of clinical outcome in ALI. The increased ALI-associated mortality in the older population suggests that there are age-dependent alterations in the responses to pulmonary challenge. The objective of this observational study was to evaluate age-dependent differences in the acute (within 6 hours) immunological and physiological responses of the heart and lung, to pulmonary challenge, that could result in increased severity. Methods: Male C57Bl/6 mice (young: 2-3 months, old: 18-20 months) were challenged intratracheally with cell wall components from Gram-positive bacteria (lipoteichoic acid and peptidoglycan). After 6 hours, both biochemical and physiological consequences of the challenge were assessed. Alveolar infiltration of inflammatory cells and protein, airspace and blood cytokines, cardiac function and myocardial proteasome activity were determined. Results:
Discussion. The results showed that the most hypertension occurred at the age of 60-69 years, followed by elderly aged 70 years with a percentage of 32.4%. This age belongs to the elderly group, and the elderly group is at high risk. The age factor is one of the factors that play an important role in the incidence of hypertension. The older the people, the more changes in physical and biological. Changes that occur are part of the vulnerability, which becomes one of the predisposing factors for health status that becomes worse.8 The findings showed that many elderly people aged 60-69 years do an unbalanced lifestyle and still consume a lot of fat intake such as fried foods. Most of the elderly in the health center area highlighted that consuming fried foods have become a habit that cannot be avoided. Elderly have a habit of consuming excess fat, fast food, fatty foods and high cholesterol.9. Women have the largest proportion with the incidence of hypertension as many as 79 people (73.1%).

This study examined stopping and performance adjustments in four age groups (M ages: 8, 12, 21, and 76 years). All participants performed on three tasks, a standard two-choice task and the same task in which stop-signal trials were inserted requiring either the suppression of the response activated by the choice stimulus (global stop task) or the suppression of the response when one stop signal was presented but not when the other stop signal occurred (selective stop task). The results showed that global stopping was faster than selective stopping in all age groups. Global stopping matured more rapidly than selective stopping. The developmental gain in stopping was considerably more pronounced compared to the loss observed during senescence. All age groups slowed the response on trials without a stop signal in the stop task compared to trials in the choice task, the elderly in particular. In addition, all age groups slowed on trials following stop-signal trials, except the elderly who did not slow
Nice study that examines the relationship between with decreased ovarian reserve and age at menarche.

However, several other authors have published papers recently addressing this question with conflicting results ...
The increasing incidence of and interest in hepatitis in the last decade is clearly discernible from the constantly rising volume of literature on the subject. In the past several years we have encountered numerous cases of jaundice in various age groups in which the correct diagnosis became apparent after a brief survey, including various laboratory procedures in conjunction with a short period of clinical observation. In several cases, however, the history and the laboratory studies left the clinical picture sufficiently confused as to necessitate more involved diagnostic procedures, such as cholangiography, liver biopsy and even exploratory laparotomy.. These patients presented ...
An experiment was conducted to examine the effect of age on heart rate when an individual is subjected to a specific amount of exercise. Ten male subjects were randomly selected from four age groups: 10-19, 20-39, 40-59, and.

The low number of incorrect identifications, combined with the absence of any correct ones probably means that the risk in the dataset is low enough to be considered suitable for "open data". However, it might even be deemed too cautious with disclosure control being applied too strictly. The ideal situation is to have a fair number of incorrect identifications and very few (not necessarily nil) correct identifications. For this example it was decided to reattempt intruder testing, but to use eight age bands instead of four age bands; results are shown in Table A5.. The question is then one of risk appetite. The level of risk that one would normally take with an open dataset (and therefore to be publicly available) is usually very low. Always remember that it would be perfectly legal for an intruder or researcher to attempt to identify an individual and to claim to have made a correct identification. It is therefore important for a data provider to have a strategy in place for that instance. ...
Its not the age bands, writes Harold. Hes right. It isnt. I have no disagreement with what Harold wrote. However, I may be more open to additional

  • Even among young adults of the same age, on the same program, some will progress faster or slower than predicted (and/or be stronger or weaker at the onset). (
  • After controlling for parental polygenic risk scores, every 10-year delay in paternal age increased the risk of early-onset schizophrenia in offspring by about 30 percent," said lead author Shi-Heng Wang, Ph.D., China Medical University in Taichung. (
  • Maternal age was not associated with risk of early onset in offspring. (
  • Presumably, advanced paternal age increases risk for early-onset schizophrenia because advancing age is associated with an accumulation of mutations," writes John Krystal, M.D., editor of Biological Psychiatry . (
  • It would be important to understand the distinct neural mechanisms through which advanced paternal age influenced the age of onset. (
  • The loss or diminution of JPFs after a given stage of postnatal development or at time of sexual maturity may contribute to the onset of deleterious aging changes (e.g., compromised stem cell function and reparative capacity) across adulthood. (
  • However, Parkinson's disease can also be diagnosed in patients who are under the age of 50, in which case it is referred to as young-onset Parkinson's disease. (
  • In very rare cases, Parkinson's disease can begin before the age of 20, in which case it is referred to as juvenile-onset Parkinson's disease and is usually due to a genetic inheritance. (
  • The average age of the onset of the disease is 60 years, and the incidence rises significantly with increasing age. (
  • However, about 5-10 percent of people with Parkinson's disease have an "early-onset" of the disease, which begins before the age of 50. (
  • Young age at onset, female gender, relapsing/remitting course, and sensitive or visual disturbances as initial symptoms are considered favourable prognostic factors. (
  • Conversely, late age at onset, male gender, progressive course, and pyramidal or cerebellar symptoms at the first episode predict an unfavourable evolution. (
  • Aging, i.e. a decline in the growth rate of the native population, has an expansionary effect on immigration. (
  • And total lifetime cigarettes smoked predicted greater decline in FEV 1 between ages 14 and 50 years ( P =0.007), the researchers reported in the January issue of Chest . (
  • However, it has been unclear whether these influences are limited to early life, or whether later factors also contribute to accelerated respiratory decline in middle age. (
  • This subclinical brain aging may precede clinically visible decline, but it's unclear if these findings affect daily functioning," Angoff said. (

  • It is encouraging to find positive effects when we test interventions that might affect diseases and declines associated with advancing age," notes NIA Director Richard J. Hodes, M.D. "However, we need to learn much more about the health consequences of this type of intervention in healthy people before considering dietary recommendations. (
  • For effective treatment, the risk factors for the diseases merit investigation. (
  • The effects of systolic blood pressure (SBP), serum total cholesterol (TC), fasting plasma glucose (FPG), and body mass index (BMI) on the risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) have been established in epidemiological studies, but consistent estimates of effect sizes by age and sex are not available. (
