Mayo Clinic Study Shows Increase in Parkinson’s Disease Over 30 Years

ROCHESTER, Minn. — The incidence of Parkinson’s disease and parkinsonism increased significantly in 30 years from 1976 to 2005, Mayo Clinic researchers reported today in a study in JAMA Neurology. This trend was noted in particular for men age 70 and older. According to the researchers, this is the first study to suggest such an increasing trend.

Life Preserver: Exercise May Be the Simple Solution for Rescuing Seniors’ Lost and Injured Muscle

GianniParise.jpeg

Exercise may have some surprising benefits for seniors who experience rapid muscle loss and muscle injury and loss as they age. Researchers at McMaster University have found that physical activity can help retain, even repair and regenerate damaged muscle in the elderly. The findings challenge what is generally seen as an inevitable fact of life: that muscle atrophy and damage cannot be completely repaired in old age and in some cases lost altogether.

Age, Obesity, Dopamine Appear to Influence Preference for Sweet Foods

As young people reach adulthood, their preferences for sweet foods typically decline. But a Washington University School of Medicine research team, led by M. Yanina Pepino, PhD, and Tamara Hershey, PhD, has found that for people with obesity, the drop-off may not be as steep, and the brain’s reward system may be operating differently.

Mayo Clinic Researchers Develop Accurate Way to Measure Growth Factor Linked to Aging

Researchers at Mayo Clinic have developed an accurate way to measure a circulating factor, called GDF11, to better understand its potential impact on the aging process. They found that GDF11 levels do not decline with chronological age, but are associated with signs of advanced biological age, including chronic disease, frailty and greater operative risk in older adults with cardiovascular disease. Results appear today in Cell Metabolism.

Mayo Clinic Researchers Link Specific Enzyme to Process of Metabolic Dysfunction in Aging

Researchers at Mayo Clinic have identified the enzyme, called CD38, that is responsible for the decrease in nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) during aging, a process that is associated with age-related metabolic decline. Results demonstrated an increase in the presence of CD38 with aging in both mice and humans. The results appear today in Cell Metabolism.

Regenerating Memory with Neural Stem Cells

Although brains—even adult brains—are far more malleable than we used to think, they are eventually subject to age-related illnesses, like dementia, and loss of cognitive function. Someday, though, we may actually be able to replace brain cells and restore memory.
