HIV-related Accelerated Aging of the Airway Epithelium

While the epidemiologic data linking HIV infection to an increased risk for COPD is clear, the pathogenesis of the accelerated development of COPD in HIV infected smokers is not understood. We have focused on the SAE as the central target for the accelerated development of COPD in HIV infected smokers, ...

Phase N/A

Biological Aging Medication Malnutrition and Inflammation Among Acutely Ill and Healthy Elderly.

Malnutrition Malnutrition among elderly is associated with frailty, including loss of weight, muscle mass, function and quality of life and also with an increased number of hospital admissions. In this study, the investigators aim to describe the development of and the risk factors for malnutrition from admission to 4 weeks ...

Phase N/A

Aging Geriatric Syndromes and Clonal Hematopoiesis

In this study the investigators will incorporate a wide range of clinical variables associated with aging to determine whether they are associated with mutation status independent of chronologic age. Clinically, aging can be operationalized using geriatric assessment, which entails a comprehensive multi-dimensional assessment of the health of an older adult, ...

Phase N/A

Brain Blood Flow: Age and Gender

The investigators have recently shown that cerebral blood flow responses to chemical stimuli are reduced in healthy older adults. The investigators also have preliminary data suggesting that sex differences in cerebrovascular regulation exist. The overall goal of this application is to extend on the investigators previous studies by employing advanced ...

Phase N/A

Neurocognitive Study for the Aging

Given the fact that older adults are expected to live longer while maintaining their social and professional activities, the development of effective cognitive retraining methodologies designed to maximize independence has been of interest. In addition to changes caused by the normal aging process, older adults over 65 are at a ...

Phase N/A

Ageing and Acute Care Physicians' Performance

The proportion of older acute care physicians (ACP), emergency, critical care & anesthesia, has been steadily increasing. Ageing is associated with physiological changes, which in turn can influence a physician's clinical abilities and decision-making. The litigation and physician disciplinary data suggests that incidents involving all physicians are likely to occur ...

Phase N/A

Insulin Resistance and Accelerated Cognitive Aging

Premature and accelerated brain aging trajectories started to be recognized in cognitive and neural responses, but specific mechanisms for the course of cognitive aging remain to be elucidated. Insulin resistance (IR) is known to change with age, affect cognition in older and elderly adults as well as in patients with ...

Phase N/A

Emotion Study -- A Neurofeedback Approach

Overview: All participants of both age groups will be randomly divided (like tossing a coin) into two groups: One group will have training sessions using a special feedback technique to learn to actively increase blood flow in the front of the brain, while thinking of and viewing emotional faces, scenes, ...

Phase N/A

Development of 3T Magnetic Resonance Research Methods for NIA Studies

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies yield important information on the structure and function of various body systems including the brain, muscles, joints, heart, blood vessels and other body areas. Unlike clinical MRI imaging, scientific applications often utilize techniques that either requires de-novo development or modification of existing research or commercially ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Aging on Bariatric Surgery-induced Changes in Metabolism and Cognition

With an aging population that is increasingly susceptible to obesity and obesity-related comorbidities including sarcopenia and diabetes, effective and safe treatment options tailored to the needs of older adults are imperative. While medication and lifestyle interventions generally fail to achieve sustained large-scale weight loss, bariatric surgery is the most effective ...
