Growing more positive with age: The relationship between reproduction and survival in aging flies

Experimental Gerontology | April 2017 | Abstract Populations of laboratory animals that are selected for increased lifespan often show negative correlated responses in early fecundity. However, late fecundity and/or total lifetime fecundity can be higher in the populations selected for increased lifespan. This has been interpreted by some as being at odds with the [...]

Yotam Raz (PhD-student, Molecular Epidemiology, LUMC) won the James Joseph Award

On the 12th of June, Yotam Raz (PhD-student, Molecular Epidemiology, LUMC) won the James Joseph Award at the annual conference of the American Aging Association for best PhD-student presentation. During this meeting in Brooklyn, NY, he demonstrated in his talk titled ‘Mild lifestyle changes lead to skeletal muscle remodeling in older adults’ that a mild improvement in diet and physical activity [...]

Dietary acid load, trabecular bone integrity, and mineral density in an ageing population: the Rotterdam study

Osteoporosis International: with other metabolic bone diseases | 12-04-2017 | Abstract We studied the relation between a diet that is high in acid-forming nutrients (e.g. proteins) and low in base-forming nutrients (e.g. potassium) and bone structure. We showed a negative relation, which was more prominent if proteins were of animal rather than of [...]

Protein-enriched familiar foods and drinks improve protein intake of hospitalized older patients: A randomized controlled trial

Cilincal Nutrition  | 12-05-2017 | Abstract Background & aims: Adequate protein intake is important in preventing and treating undernutrition. Hospitalized older patients are recommended to consume 1.2e1.5 g of protein per kg body weight per day (g/kg/d) but most of them fail to do so. Therefore, we investigated whether a range of newly [...]

The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension Diet, Cognitive Function, and Cognitive Decline in American Older Women

JAMDA | 01-06-2017 |   Abstract Objectives: To examine the association between long-term adherence to the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet with cognitive function and decline in older American women. Design: Prospective cohort study. Setting: The Nurses’ Health Study, a cohort of registered nurses residing in 11 US states. Participants: A [...]

Dose response effects of supplementation with calcifediol on serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D status and its metabolites: A randomized controlled trial in older adults

Clinical Nutrition | 26-03-2017 | Abstract Background & aims: Oral supplementation with vitamin D is recommended for older adults to maintain a sufficient 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) status throughout the year. While supplementation with vitamin D2 or D3 is most common, alternative treatment regimens exist which require further investigation with respect to increasing 25(OH)D [...]

Activation-Induced Autophagy Is Preserved in CD4+ T-Cells in Familial Longevity

The Journal of Gerontology  | 09-05-2017 | Abstract As with many other tissues and organs, the immune system is also affected by age. Immunosenescence is characterized by a decreased ability of immune cells to mount a productive response upon exposure to new antigens. Several studies have reported that members of families with exceptional [...]

Cellular senescence drives age-dependent hepatic steatosis

Nature Communications | 13-06-2017 | Abstract: The incidence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) increases with age. Cellular senescence refers to a state of irreversible cell-cycle arrest combined with the secretion of proinflammatory cytokines and mitochondrial dysfunction. Senescent cells contribute to age-related tissue degeneration. Here we show that the accumulation of senescent cells promotes [...]
