Age and Insulin Resistance

Insulin resistance is a crucial factor for the development of type 2 diabetes and a major health problem for older adults. It is the principal mechanism by which obesity is considered to increase the risk for type 2 diabetes and is a key feature of the metabolic syndrome. The elevated ...

Phase N/A

Resveratrol and Cardiovascular Health in the Elderly

Resveratrol is found in the leaves and skin of grapes, in peanuts and in the roots of the plant polygonum cupsidatum. Although used since early years in Indian Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, it came into prominence in the 1990 s as it was believed to be the major reason for ...

Phase

Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging

The Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging (BLSA) is the NIA s major clinical research program in human aging that has been conducted in Baltimore since 1958. The study population is a series of healthy volunteers of different ages followed indefinitely with serial evaluations over time. The major aim of the ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of the Cosmetic Effects of Bakuchiol and Retinol

Subjects will be assigned to a retinoid cream or bakuchiol to compare the cosmetic effects. This will take place over a 12 week period.

Phase

Physical Activity and Cognition Study

The overall duration of participation in this research study is approximately 4 months. During this time, three study visits will be required. The first visit is for informed consent and screening, the second visit is for baseline fitness and cognitive testing, and the third visit is for follow-up fitness and ...

Phase N/A

Utilizing Protein During Weight Loss to Impact Physical Function

The study will use a 3-group design in 225 obese (BMI 30-45 kg/m2), older (65-79 years) men and women at risk for disability (SPPB 10) who will undergo a 6-month weight loss intervention followed by a 12-month follow-up phase to test the overall hypothesis that a higher protein (1.2 g/kg ...

Phase N/A

Oral Health for Healthy Cognitive Aging

Objective 1: To determine volumetric and anatomical changes of subcortical structures and cortical areas involved in the masticatory circuit and superior cognitive functions. Objective 2: To determine the functional and brain connectivity changes associated with malocclusion and oral health. Objective 3: To correlate the anatomic and functional changes associated with ...

Phase N/A

Acute Effects of Sitting Time in Older Adults

Until relatively recently, sedentary behaviour was considered as the 'lower end' of the physical activity spectrum. However there is accumulating evidence from both epidemiological and observational studies which shows that sedentary behaviour per se rather than just low physical activity is also a major modifiable risk factor for chronic disease ...

Phase N/A

SArcopenia Prevalence in Frail Older Adults. SAF Study

The age-associated loss of lean mass is a defining parameter of sarcopenia and may lead to various negative health outcomes such as impairment of physical performance and disability. Furthermore sarcopenia is considered to be one of the main factors in the pathogenesis of the frailty syndrome. However, for clinical use ...

Phase N/A

Genetic and Epigenetic Signatures of Translational Aging Laboratory Testing (GESTALT)

Under the assumption that aging is caused by dysfunction of specific biological mechanisms, it is reasonable to hypothesize that slowing aging should delay the onset of chronic diseases that typically affect older persons and improve their longevity and quality of life. Indeed, there is emerging evidence that factors associated with ...
