Hypnosis helps hot flashes (10/27/2012)

Hypnosis can help cut hot flashes by as much as 74 percent, shows a study supported by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. This is the first controlled, randomized study of the technique to manage hot flashes, which affect as much as 80 percent of women who go through menopause. The study was published online this month in Menopause, the journal of the North American Menopause Society. ...> Full Article


Study of patients ages 90 and older links poor physical performance, increased odds of dementia (10/26/2012)

Poor physical performance on activities including walking was associated with increased odds of dementia in a study of individuals 90 years and older. ...> Full Article


Healthy behaviors in midlife significantly increase odds of successful aging (10/25/2012)

Engaging in a combination of healthy behaviors, such as not smoking, moderate alcohol consumption, exercise, and eating fruits and vegetables daily makes it significantly more likely people will stay healthy as they age, according to a study published in CMAJ. ...> Full Article


Exercise may trump mental activity in protecting against brain shrinkage (10/24/2012)

Exercising regularly in old age may better protect against brain shrinkage than engaging in mental or social activities, according to a new study published in the Oct. 23, 2012, print issue of Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. Research suggests that brain shrinkage may lead to problems with memory and thinking. ...> Full Article


Aspirin may slow the decline in mental capacity among elderly patients (10/23/2012)

A daily dose of acetylsalicylic acid equivalent to a fourth of an aspirin may slow the decline in intellectual capacity among elderly individuals with high cardiovascular risk. This is shown in a study by Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. ...> Full Article


Study shows fit elderly patients should be considered for therapy (10/17/2012)

Until there are more validated biomarkers to direct treatment decisions, many physicians use patient age to decide what therapy to give their patients. Literature data report that older patients often go undertreated because of concerns for limited tolerance to toxic therapies. A study, published in the November 2012 issue of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer's Journal of Thoracic Oncology, says that fit elderly NSCLC patients should be considered for salvage targeted therapy. ...> Full Article


Caffeine may block inflammation linked to mild cognitive impairment (10/11/2012)

A new University of Illinois study has discovered a novel signal that activates the brain-based inflammation associated with neurodegenerative diseases, and caffeine appears to block its activity. This discovery may eventually lead to drugs that could reverse or inhibit mild cognitive impairment, said Gregory Freund, a professor in the U of I's College of Medicine and a member of the U of I's Division of Nutritional Sciences. ...> Full Article


Scientists identify biological mechanism that plays key role in early-onset dementia (10/10/2012)

Scientists identify biological mechanism that plays key role in early-onset dementiaUsing animal models, scientists at the Gladstone Institutes have discovered how a protein deficiency may be linked to both brain injury and to frontotemporal dementia -- which is a form of early-onset dementia that is similar to Alzheimer's disease. These results lay the foundation for therapies that may one day benefit those who suffer from these debilitating and potentially deadly conditions. ...> Full Article


Benzodiazepine use and dementia in the over 65s (10/7/2012)

Benzodiazepines are prescribed to treat symptoms of anxiety and sleeping disorders. Collaborative research conducted by researchers from three Inserm units in Bordeaux has recently highlighted the link between benzodiazepine use and the development of dementia in the over 65s. The researchers analysed a sample from the PAQUID cohort, consisting of individuals with a mean age of over 78, who were monitored for 15 years. ...> Full Article

Study finds direct correlation between hospital bedsores, patient mortality (10/3/2012)

A new clinical study published in the current issue of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society has found a direct correlation between pressure ulcers and patient mortality and increased hospitalization. This is believed to be the first study of its kind to use data directly from medical records to assess hospital acquired pressure ulcers in Medicare patients at the national and state levels. ...> Full Article
