1089. Risk of death in elderly users of conventional vs. atypical antipsychotic medications. (Abstract)

Risk of death in elderly users of conventional vs. atypical antipsychotic medications. Recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an advisory stating that atypical antipsychotic medications increase mortality among elderly patients. However, the advisory did not apply to conventional antipsychotic medications; the risk of death with these older agents is not known.We conducted a retrospective cohort study involving 22,890 patients 65 years of age or older who had drug insurance (...) confirmed, these results suggest that conventional antipsychotic medications are at least as likely as atypical agents to increase the risk of death among elderly persons and that conventional drugs should not be used to replace atypical agents discontinued in response to the FDA warning.Copyright 2005 Massachusetts Medical Society.

1100. Cystatin C and the risk of death and cardiovascular events among elderly persons. (Abstract)

Cystatin C and the risk of death and cardiovascular events among elderly persons. Cystatin C is a serum measure of renal function that appears to be independent of age, sex, and lean muscle mass. We compared creatinine and cystatin C levels as predictors of mortality from cardiovascular causes and from all causes in the Cardiovascular Health Study, a cohort study of elderly persons living in the community.Creatinine and cystatin C were measured in serum samples collected from 4637 participants (...) causes (hazard ratio, 2.27 [1.73 to 2.97]), myocardial infarction (hazard ratio, 1.48 [1.08 to 2.02]), and stroke (hazard ratio, 1.47 [ 1.09 to 1.96]) after multivariate adjustment. The fifth quintile of creatinine, as compared with the first quintile, was not independently associated with any of these three outcomes.Cystatin C, a serum measure of renal function, is a stronger predictor of the risk of death and cardiovascular events in elderly persons than is creatinine.Copyright 2005 Massachusetts
