LOWER-EXTREMITY FUNCTION IN PERSONS OVER THE AGE OF 70 YEARS AS A PREDICTOR OF SUBSEQUENT DISABILITY
Among nondisabled older persons living in the community, objective measures of lower-extremity function were highly predictive of subsequent disability, including falls, institutionalization, and death.
COMPARISON OF MORTALITY IN ALL PATIENTS ON DIALYSIS , PATIENTS ON DIALYSIS AWAITING TRANSPLANTATION , AND RECIPIENTS OF A FIRST CADAVERIC TRANSPLANT
Among patients with end-stage renal disease, healthier patients are placed on a waiting list for transplantation, and long-term survival is better among those on the waiting list who eventually undergo transplantation.
PREDICTING OBESITY IN YOUNG ADULTHOOD FROM CHILDHOOD AND PARENTAL OBESITY
Obese children under three years of age without obese parents are at low risk for obesity in adulthood, but among older children, obesity is an increasingly important predictor of adult obesity, regardless of whether the parents are obese.
A RANDOMIZED COMPARISON OF A SIROLIMUS-ELUTING STENT WITH A STANDARD STENT FOR CORONARY REVASCULARIZATION
As compared with a standard coronary stent, a sirolimus-eluting stent shows considerable promise for the prevention of neointimal proliferation, restenosis, and associated clinical events.
INTRAVENOUS NESIRITIDE, A NATRIURETIC PEPTIDE, IN THE TREATMENT OF DECOMPENSATED CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE
Improvements in global clinical status, dyspnea, and fatigue were sustained with nesiritide therapy for up to seven days and were similar to those observed with standard intravenous therapy for heart failure.
CARDIAC TROPONIN T LEVELS FOR RISK STRATIFICATION IN ACUTE MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA
The cardiac troponin T level is a powerful, independent risk marker in patients who present with acute myocardial ischemia and allows further stratification of risk when combined with standard measures such as electrocardiography and the CKMB level.
Vaccination against Lyme Disease with Recombinant Borrelia burgdorferi Outer-Surface Lipoprotein A with Adjuvant
Three injections of vaccine prevented most definite cases of Lyme disease or asymptomatic B. burgdorferi infection in 10,936 subjects in areas of the United States in which Lyme disease is endemic.
THE EFFECT OF NISOLDIPINE AS COMPARED WITH ENALAPRIL ON CARDIOVASCULAR OUTCOMES IN PATIENTS WITH NON-INSULIN-DEPENDENT DIABETES AND HYPERTENSION
In this population of patients with diabetes and hypertension, a significantly higher incidence of fatal and nonfatal myocardial infarction among those assigned to therapy with the calcium-channel blocker nisoldipine than among those assign to receive enalapril is found.
Effects of human growth hormone in men over 60 years old.
Diminished secretion of growth hormone is responsible in part for the decrease of lean body mass, the expansion of adipose-tissue mass, and the thinning of the skin that occur in old age.
