Passive Heat Therapy and Age-associated Physiological Function

Advancing age is the primary risk factor for cardiovascular diseases (CVD), which remain the leading cause of death in the developed world. The key process that links aging to increased risk of CVD is the development of arterial dysfunction, including impaired endothelial function and arterial stiffening. In addition, age-associated impairments ...

Phase N/A

Immune Response to Pneumococcal Vaccination in Aging HIV Positive Adults

The purpose of this study is to learn more about how older people with HIV respond to the pneumococcal or pneumonia vaccine. Pneumonia occurs very frequently in in older persons AND in persons who are infected with HIV. Therefore, it is common practice to vaccinate against pneumonia in these patient ...

Phase N/A

Exercise Effects on Word Learning

Difficulty retrieving the right word to communicate a message is the most common complaint in healthy older adults and individuals with stroke-induced language impairment (i.e., aphasia). Novel word learning paradigms have been used to investigate a variety of behavioral and neuromodulatory approaches to improve word retrieval deficits. Previous novel word ...

ACES - ACE Inhibitors Combined With Exercise for Seniors With Hypertension

The purpose of this project is to conduct a randomized, controlled trial (RCT) to determine if choice of antihypertensive medication influences changes in functional status and other cardiovascular risk factors among older persons with hypertension. Functional status, determined by measures of physical performance, is an important predictor of cardiovascular outcomes ...

Impact of Chronic Circadian Disruption vs. Chronic Sleep Restriction on Metabolism

It has long been recognized that sleep patterns change with age. A common feature of aging is the advance of the timing of sleep to earlier hours, often earlier than desired. These age-related changes are found in even healthy individuals who are not taking medications and who are free from ...

Phase N/A

Sleep Aging and Risk for Alzheimer's 2.0

Age-related sleep changes and common sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may increase amyloid burden and represent risk factors for cognitive decline in the elderly. We will directly interrogate the brain using a 2-night nocturnal polysomnography (NPSG) and amyloid deposition using C-PiB PET/MR both at baseline and at the ...

Phase N/A

A Randomized Pilot Trial Evaluating the Impact of a Yoga Intervention on Cognition in Older Adults Infected With HIV

Approximately 50% of people living with HIV (and as many as 80% over the age of 50) have difficulties with cognitive functions such as memory and thinking that can have a profound negative impact on activities of daily living and quality of life. Problems with memory and thinking are also ...

Phase N/A

The Nicotinic Cholinergic System and Cognitive Aging

The cholinergic system has been shown to be the primary neurotransmitter system responsible for cognitive symptoms in dementia. While therapeutic benefits are clear in dementia, what remains uncertain is the role that the cholinergic system in general and the nicotinic system specifically plays in cognition in healthy non-demented older adults ...

Phase

Health TAPESTRY Ontario

The Health Teams Advancing Patient Experience: Strengthening Quality (Health TAPESTRY) involves recording a person's life and health goals, screening for health risks and needs, and then initiating a plan that supports achievement of those goals and address risks and needs. It includes four parts: Trained volunteers connect with clients (patients) ...

Phase N/A

Predictive Platform for PEople aGed and Requiring ASsistancE

The object of the present project is to evaluate an instrument for monitoring functional and cognitive autonomy in frail or disable elderly persons living alone at home. By assessing older person's autonomy at home and detecting early infra-clinical indicators, the solution could provide relevant clinical parameters to the caregivers and ...
