Prolonged high-fat diet induces gradual and fat depot-specific DNA methylation changes in adult mice

Scientific reports | 03-03-2017 | Abstract High-fat diets (HFD) are thought to contribute to the development of metabolism-related diseases. The long-term impact of HFD may be mediated by epigenetic mechanisms, and indeed, HFD has been reported to induce DNA methylation changes in white adipose tissue (WAT) near metabolism related genes. However, previous studies [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
