93301. Liver fibrosis is not associated with steatosis but with necroinflammation in French patients with chronic hepatitis C. Full Text available with Trip Pro

with chronic hepatitis C.From November 2000 to July 2001, untreated consecutive adults with chronic hepatitis C admitted for liver biopsy were included in this study. On the day of liver biopsy, a questionnaire for risk factors was completed prospectively, and a blood sample was obtained for laboratory analysis.Our study included 290 patients (143 men, 147 women). Mean body mass index (BMI) was 24 (3.8) kg/m(2). Proportions of patients with genotypes 1 and 3 were, respectively, 48% and 18%. A total of 135

93302. Worsening of steatosis is an independent factor of fibrosis progression in untreated patients with chronic hepatitis C and paired liver biopsies. Full Text available with Trip Pro

patients were selected according to the following criteria: absence of treatment; absence of cirrhosis at initial biopsy; and serum hepatitis B surface antigen and human immunodeficiency virus antibody negativity. Degrees of necroinflammatory activity, fibrosis, and steatosis grades were assessed in the two biopsies. In addition to histological lesions, parameters studied included the source of infection, duration of infection, body mass index, alcohol intake, alanine aminotransferase levels, hepatitis

93304. Factors associated with falls in older patients with diffuse polyneuropathy. (Abstract)

balance testing. Falls were defined by retrospective self-report over a 2-year period.Forty (48.8%), 28 (34.1%), and 18 (22.0%) subjects reported a history of at least one fall, multiple falls, and injurious falls, respectively. Factors associated with single and multiple falls were similar, so only results for multiple and injurious falls are reported. Bivariate analysis showed that an increased body mass index (BMI) and more severe PN (as determined by the Michigan Diabetes Neuropathy Score) were

serum level was available.Self-report of functional status, objective measures of walking performance, and knee extensor strength were assessed at baseline and over six semiannual follow-up visits. Potential confounders were baseline age, race, body mass index, smoking, depression, and medical conditions.At baseline, women with high IL-6 were more often disabled and had lower walking speed. After adjusting for confounders, women in the highest IL-6 tertile (IL-6>3.10 pg/mL) were at higher risk

at risk for PEM, or (3) being well nourished according to Subjective Global Assessment (SGA) and Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA). Body mass index ((BMI) kg/m2), arm anthropometry, and handgrip strength were determined. In a subgroup of patients (n = 39), body composition was analyzed using dual energy x-ray absorption and bioelectrical impedance. Three-year mortality data were obtained from the Swedish population records.Twenty percent and 26% of the patients were classified as having PEM based (...) ) in patients classified as being well nourished.Fewer than one-third of newly admitted geriatric patients had a normal nutritional status according to SGA and MNA. BMI, arm anthropometry, body fat mass, and handgrip strength were reduced, and 1-, 2-, and 3-year mortality was higher in patients classified as malnourished. The present data justify the use of SGA and MNA for the assessment of nutritional status in geriatric patients.

93308. Bone loss predicts subsequent cognitive decline in older women: the study of osteoporotic fractures. (Abstract)

occurred in 12% of the women with the least bone loss (by quartile), 14% in the second, 16% in the third, and 20% in those with the greatest bone loss. After adjustment for age, education, stroke, functional status, estrogen use, body mass index, and smoking, the results were similar. Those who lost the most BMD were almost 40% more likely than women in the lowest quartile to develop cognitive decline in the multivariate model (odds ratio (OR) = 1.4, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.1-1.8).

93309. Lower skeletal muscle nutritive blood flow in older women is related to eNOS protein content. (Abstract)

. Muscle eNOS protein content correlated with muscle nutritive blood flow (r =.66, p <.05) and body mass index (r =.74, p <.05), but it did not correlate with VO(2)peak. Muscle eNOS content was 35% lower in young than in older women (266 +/- 36 vs 407 +/- 53 pg/mg total protein; p <.05). The mean ethanol outflow-to-inflow ratio was higher (indicating lower nutritive flow) in older and young women (.666 +/-.042 and.546 +/-.043, respectively: p <.05). Resting skeletal nutritive blood flow and muscle eNOS (...) Lower skeletal muscle nutritive blood flow in older women is related to eNOS protein content. The relationship between muscle endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) content and nutritive flow was investigated in nonobese sedentary young (27.7 +/- 2.6 years) and older (56.6 +/- 2.1 years) women matched for body composition and (2)peak. A muscle biopsy was taken and nutritive blood flow was determined under resting conditions in the vastus lateralis of the quadriceps femoris muscle group

93311. Lifestyle intervention of hypocaloric dieting and walking reduces abdominal obesity and improves coronary heart disease risk factors in obese, postmenopausal, African-American and Caucasian women. (Abstract)

determined the efficacy of a lifestyle weight loss intervention in reducing total and abdominal obesity and improving CHD risk factors in obese Caucasian and African-American postmenopausal women.Body composition (dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry), abdominal fat areas (computed tomography scan), lipoprotein lipids, insulin, glucose tolerance, and blood pressure were measured before and after 6 months of hypocaloric diet and low-intensity walking in 76 overweight or obese (body mass index > 25 kg/m(2 (...) )), Caucasian (72%) or African-American (28%), postmenopausal (age = 60 +/- 5 years) women who completed the study.Absolute amount of body weight lost was similar in Caucasians (-5.4 +/- 3.6 kg) and African Americans (-3.9 +/- 3.6 kg), but Caucasian women lost relatively more fat mass (p <.05). Both groups decreased their subcutaneous abdominal fat, and Caucasian women decreased their visceral fat area, but there were no racial differences in the magnitude of abdominal fat lost.

Effect of aging on serum uric acid levels: longitudinal changes in a large Japanese population group. Serum uric acid (SUA) is related not only to an increased risk of gout, but also to an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. However, real age-related changes in SUA remain unknown.Longitudinal population-based study of epidemiological follow-up data of SUA, body mass index (BMI), and alcohol intake was conducted at a health examination center between 1989 and 1998.

93316. Sleep complaints and visual impairment among older Americans: a community-based study. (Abstract)

Sleep complaints and visual impairment among older Americans: a community-based study. This report describes the associations between sleep complaints and reported visual impairment in an urban community-residing older adult sample.A total of 1118 volunteers from a biracial cohort participated in the study (mean age = 74 +/- 6; mean body mass index = 28 +/- 10). Volunteers were recruited using a stratified, cluster sampling technique. In a standard order, several questionnaires were (...) falling asleep, 52% indicated experiencing difficulty maintaining sleep, 28% reported waking up early in the morning, and 12% reported daytime sleep longer than 2 hours. Chi-square results showed greater sleep complaints for volunteers with visual impairment. Consistent with these results, analysis of variance revealed that visually impaired volunteers had a higher index rate of sleep disturbance (F((1, 1110)) = 35.32, p <.0001).These data provide evidence that older adults reporting visual impairment

The odds ratios of VaD for age (in 5-year increments), SBP (10 mmHg increments), and milk intake (almost daily/less than four times a week) were 1.29, 1.33, and 0.35, respectively. The risk factors for VaD were compatible with the risk factors for stroke in this study population. AD prevalence increased significantly

).Participants were assessed using dual energy x-ray absorptiometry and were classified as sarcopenic using two different approaches to adjust lean mass for body size: appendicular lean mass divided by height-squared (aLM/ht2) and appendicular lean mass adjusted for height and body fat mass (residuals).These methods differed substantially in the classification of individuals as being sarcopenic, especially those who were more obese. The former method was highly correlated with body mass index and identified (...) Sarcopenia: alternative definitions and associations with lower extremity function.
