Couples Coping With Alzheimer's Disease

The majority of people with Alzheimer's disease (AD) live at home with their spouses. AD erodes the ability of each member of the couple to support each other. Moreover, couples may be unaccustomed to seeking or accepting emotional and practical support from family members or formal resources. Even though AD ...

Safety Follow-up Study in Subjects With Silicone Gel-filled Breast Implants as Compared Both to Saline-filled Breast Implants and to National Norms

Ten year safety study examining rates of rare adverse events, child bearing issues, effects of mammography, MRI compliance and results, and long-term benefit of silicone-filled breast implants.

Study of Male Osteoporosis and Aging

Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by decreased bone mass and pathological changes in the microarchitecture of the bones. The clinical significance of osteoporosis is the association with fragility fractures and, consequently, increases in both morbidity and mortality. In men, genetical and life-style factors are known to affect the risk of ...

Effects of Chronic Sleep Restriction in Young and Older People

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. Polysomnographically-recorded sleep in older people shows an increased number of awakenings, a reduction of stages 3 and 4 (SWS) ...

Ascertainment of Saliva or Blood Samples For Genetic Epidemiology Studies of Cancer and Aging

This is a protocol to obtain saliva or blood samples from non-cancer affected volunteers aged 60 years or older, without a history of cancer other than non-melanoma skin cancer. These samples will be used in a genomic approach to elucidate novel pathways of cancer predisposition.

Treatment Routes for Exploring Agitation

Clinicians often refer to elderly persons under their care as "agitated." However, agitation is not a diagnosis, but rather, a descriptive term pertaining to a group of behavioral signs and symptoms, defined as socially inappropriate verbal, vocal, or motor (physical) activity that is not judged by an outside observer to ...

Predictors of Cognitive Decline in Normal Aging

Studies of normal aging and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) show that loss of neurons and reduction in size of the hippocampal part of the brain predict a person's conversion from MCI to Alzheimer's disease (AD). Increases in tangle-related abnormal tau proteins, specifically P-tau231, also appear to be related. This study ...

Phase N/A

Cytapheresis of Volunteer Donors

Cytapheresis is an automated method/process of cell removal and collection that involves a continuous flow cell separation by centrifugation and the withdrawal of a particular blood component. This allows blood components not collected to be continuously returned to the donor. Guidance and recommendations for the performance of these procedures are ...

Gerontology Research Center Tissue Procurement for Biomedical Research

The need to obtain human tissue (blood, urine, saliva, sweat, pleural, pericardial, ascitic, synovial, cerebrospinal fluids) for methods development and disease correlation is frequent in Gerontology Research Center laboratories. This protocol is to create the opportunity to obtain such tissue samples that have been obtained during the course of usual ...

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 ...
