Assessment of Metoprolol in the Prevention of Vasovagal Syncope in Aging Subjects

Syncope affects about 50% of Canadians, is the cause of 1-2% of emergency room visits, and probably is responsible for CDN $250 million in health care spending each year. It is associated with decreased quality of life, trauma, loss of employment, and limitations in daily activities. The most common cause ...

The Effect of Aging on Value Based Decision-making

The attribution of value to prospects is a fundamental element of decision-making, as most day-to-day decisions involve comparing items. Studies on aging document behaviors reflecting difficulties in making comparisons between options, in particular when those options are complex. Given the growing complexity of economic products (insurance, savings, mortgages or even ...

Phase N/A

Aging Mammary Stem Cells and Breast Cancer Prevention

A non-randomized, open-label, phase II, window of opportunity trial will be carried out to see if a 5-7 day rapamycin treatment can reduce malignant markers and aberrant MaSC number

Phase

WAVE Study- Walking and Aging in VErona Study

To examine the impact of a 48-week of diet +/- Nordic Walking program on physical performance, muscle function, cardiovascular risk factors and arterial stiffness in community-dwelling overweight and obese elderly men and women.

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

Impact of Ageing on Adipose Muscle and Systemic Inflammation

Adipose tissue is a highly dynamic organ that produces a wide array of adipokines which can affect the function of other tissues throughout the body. The physiology of adipose tissue is a relatively new and exciting area of research and researchers are learning more about its complexity, in particular the ...

Phase N/A

Independent Walking for Brain Health

Physical activity interventions conducted in supervised settings (laboratories and group settings) with older adults have consistently shown improved cardiovascular and cerebrovascular health and improved cognitive function. What is lacking is the development of interventions that take place in real world environments and that take advantage of new technologies to help ...

The UNCODE Study: Unravelling the Neural Contributors Of Dynapenia in Elders

The UNCODE Study seeks to better identify the neurological causes of muscle weakness associated with advancing age. The main study consists of 4 laboratory-based testing sessions that involve testing muscle strength and physical and cognitive function as well as a battery of tests to 1) quantify brain excitability (using single ...

Phase N/A

Implementing Shared Decision Making in Interprofessional Home Care Teams

This study will train health providers in home care teams across Quebec in shared decision making about the decision to stay at home or move to another location. This decision is one of the toughest for older Canadians. Decisions that are informed, shared and supported produce better results. An interprofessional ...

Phase N/A

Revitalize Cognition: Near Infrared Stimulation in Older Adults

There is a dearth of clinically meaningful treatment options at this point in time for individuals who are at increased risk for transitioning to dementia, particularly those with the amnestic variant of mild cognitive impairment (aMCI). While waiting for causative cures and preventive approaches, investigators are faced with the task ...
