Dutch Cancer Society funds ageing research

August 22th 2017 The Dutch Cancer Society has awarded funding for the Calkhoven and Demaria labs in ERIBA. The Calkhoven team (http://eriba.umcg.nl/groups/gene-regulation-in-ageing-and-age-related-diseases/) will use this funding to investigate the role of mitochondria in the maintenance of cancers that are driven by the oncogene MYC, aiming to identify novel therapeutic strategies. The Demaria team (http://eriba.umcg.nl/groups/cellular-senescence-and-age-related-pathologies/) will study [...]

Nieuw onderzoek pakt probleemgedrag ouderen met dementie aan

15 augustus 2017 Nieuw onderzoek pakt probleemgedrag ouderen met dementie aan Dwalen, apathie of boosheid: verpleeghuisbewoners met dementie vertonen vaak probleemgedrag. Wetenschappers van het Leids Universitair Medisch Centrum (LUMC) gaan samen met verpleeghuizen in de regio onderzoeken of dit gedrag minder wordt als ouderen stoppen met het slikken van bloeddrukverlagers. “Het klinkt wellicht een [...]

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 [...]
