1061. Evaluation of Renal Function in Alzheimer’s Disease and Geriatric Patients: Results from a Turkish Two-center Study Full Text available with Trip Pro

Evaluation of Renal Function in Alzheimer’s Disease and Geriatric Patients: Results from a Turkish Two-center Study Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a severe multifactorial neurodegenerative proteopathy associated with advanced age. Discrepancies in the renal function of these patients compared to geriatric patients with dementia have rarely been reported. In this study, we aimed to disclose the importance of associated renal changes for the pathogenesis of AD.Patients with AD (n=107 (...) were geriatric patients without dementia. When we analyzed comparatively the AD and geriatric dementia patients study arms, a statistically significant difference was observed both in the median age (p<0.001), as well as in the biochemical parameters from Izmir Center: Na (p<0.001), K (p<0.001), Cl (p<0.05), Ca (p<0.001), BUN (p<0.05), creatinine (p<0.001), total protein (p<0.001) and MDRD [eGFR] (p<0.001).

1063. A phase 2 study incorporating sorafenib into the chemotherapy for older adults with FLT3-mutated acute myeloid leukemia: CALGB 11001 Full Text available with Trip Pro

A phase 2 study incorporating sorafenib into the chemotherapy for older adults with FLT3-mutated acute myeloid leukemia: CALGB 11001 The Cancer and Leukemia Group B (CALGB), now part of the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology, conducted a multicenter, single-arm, phase 2 study in patients ≥60 years with FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3)-mutated acute myeloid leukemia (AML). In this study, sorafenib was added to daunorubicin and cytarabine-based induction and consolidation chemotherapy (...) and was also continued for 12 months of maintenance therapy. The primary end point of the study was overall survival (OS) at 1 year in the FLT3 internal tandem duplication (FLT3-ITD) cohort. Fifty-four patients with a median age of 67 years (range, 60.3-82.7 years) were enrolled; 39 were FLT3-ITD patients (71%) and 15 were FLT3-TKD (29%) patients. The observed 1-year OS (95% confidence interval [CI]) was 62% (45%-78%) for the FLT3-ITD patients (meeting the primary end point 62% vs 30% for a historical

1064. Lymphadenectomy in elderly/high risk patients: should it be different? Full Text available with Trip Pro

Lymphadenectomy in elderly/high risk patients: should it be different? The global aging of population will lead a greater number of elderly patients to undergo surgical procedure in a near future. Concerning gastric cancer, the impact of lymphadenectomy on survival has been demonstrated in RCTs, and extended lymphadenectomy is now considered as gold standard of treatment in non-early tumors. However, the role of age as a prognostic factor and the benefit of extended surgery in elderly/high-risk (...) patients are not clearly defined yet. From our revision of literature, it seems that surgery for gastric cancer may have a further tailorization, considering not only the stage of disease, but also patients' age and comorbidities.

Septum resection for women of reproductive age with a septate uterus. Women with a septate uterus are at increased risk for subfertility, recurrent miscarriage, and preterm birth.

[Prevalence and Risk Factors for Motor Developmental Delays in 3- to 6-Year-Old Preschool Children in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania]. School entry examinations in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania show a high prevalence of motor developmental delays (13.7%). In this study possible risk factors (RF) were analysed.The study was performed as a cluster-randomised, controlled study in 12 preschools in M-V. The "Dortmund Developmental Screening for Preschools DESK 3-6" was used to detect developmental (...) (OR: 3.10; p=0.036; 95% CI: 1.08-8.95). An age-adequate development of FM is a protective factor for GM development (OR: 0.17; p<0.001; 95% CI: 0.10-0.29).Regular preschool attendance is beneficial for motor development. RESULTS confirm the adequacy of the setting preschool for interventions.© Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New York.

1071. Age-related circadian disorganization caused by sympathetic dysfunction in peripheral clock regulation Full Text available with Trip Pro

Age-related circadian disorganization caused by sympathetic dysfunction in peripheral clock regulation The ability of the circadian clock to adapt to environmental changes is critical for maintaining homeostasis, preventing disease, and limiting the detrimental effects of aging. To date, little is known about age-related changes in the entrainment of peripheral clocks to external cues. We therefore evaluated the ability of the peripheral clocks of the kidney, liver, and submandibular gland (...) to be entrained by external stimuli including light, food, stress, and exercise in young versus aged mice using in vivo bioluminescence monitoring. Despite a decline in locomotor activity, peripheral clocks in aged mice exhibited normal oscillation amplitudes under light-dark, constant darkness, and simulated jet lag conditions, with some abnormal phase alterations. However, age-related impairments were observed in peripheral clock entrainment to stress and exercise stimuli. Conversely, age-related

1072. Recent trends in multiple myeloma incidence and survival by age, race, and ethnicity in the United States Full Text available with Trip Pro

Recent trends in multiple myeloma incidence and survival by age, race, and ethnicity in the United States Prior improvements in multiple myeloma (MM) survival were not fully observed in racial and ethnic minorities and older individuals. We hypothesized that improvements in MM management in recent years have reduced these disparities. We used the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results registries to calculate the incidence and relative survival rates (RSRs) of MM in the United States (...) . Ten-year RSRs (1993-1997 vs 2003-2007) improved for patients <65 years of age (19.6%-35%; P < .001), but not for patients ≥75 years of age (7.8%-9.3%; P = .3). Among patients 65 to 74 years of age, 10-year RSRs improved for NHWs (11.3% vs 20.5%; P < .001) and Hispanics (10.6% vs 20.2%; P = .02), but not for NHBs (12.6% vs 19.5%; P = .06.). These findings confirm consistent improvement in survival for MM patients and point to the challenge of further extending these improvements to older

Levels of ll-37 antimicrobial peptide in the gingival crevicular fluid of young and middle-aged subjects with or without gingivitis LL-37 is an antimicrobial peptide which plays an important role in the innate immunity. The aim of this study was to investigate the LL-37 levels in the gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) of middle-aged and young adults who have either gingivitis or healthy periodontal tissues.Forty middle-aged adults (20 healthy controls and 20 with gingivitis) and 41 younger adults (...) (20 healthy controls and 21 with gingivitis) were included in the present study. Probing depth, clinical attachment level, plaque index, and papilla bleeding index were recorded. LL-37 levels in the GCF were analyzed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.No significant differences were observed in the GCF LL-37 levels between young healthy and middle-aged healthy subjects. Also, there were no significant differences in GCF LL-37 levels between young and middle-aged gingivitis subjects. However
