The aim was to study the association between bone microarchitecture and muscle mass and strength in older men. Volumetric bone mineral density (vBMD) and bone microarchitecture were assessed in 810 men aged ≥60 years at the distal radius by high-resolution peripheral computed tomography (HR-pQCT). Areal bone mineral density (aBMD) and appendicular muscle(More)
Low-grade inflammation, assessed by serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) concentration, is associated with higher fracture risk irrespective of areal bone mineral density (aBMD). We assessed the association of hsCRP with bone microarchitecture (measured by high-resolution pQCT) at the distal radius and tibia in 1,149 men, aged 19–87 years.(More)
UNLABELLED OBJECTVIE: In the elderly, vitamin D deficit, low calcium intake, and impaired bone microarchitecture are associated with higher risk of hip fracture. We assessed the association of bone microarchitecture with calcium intake and serum concentrations of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (25OHD) and parathyroid hormone (PTH) in men. DESIGN(More)
In 810 men ≥60 years, poor physical performance of lower limbs was associated with lower areal bone mineral density (aBMD) of total hip and poor bone microarchitecture at the distal tibia (assessed by HR-pQCT). Men who reported falls had lower hip aBMD and lower cortical density at the distal tibia. The aim of this study was to assess the association(More)
Identification of older men at high risk of peripheral fracture can be improved by assessing prevalent fractures (men aged ≤65), history of falls (men aged >65), bone width, and aortic calcifications. Low bone mineral density (BMD) identifies 20% of men who sustain osteoporotic fracture. We studied (1) if the assessment of bone width, aortic calcifications,(More)
BACKGROUND Multiple prevention interventions, including early antiretroviral therapy initiation, may reduce HIV incidence in hyperendemic settings. Our aim was to predict the short-term impact of various single and combined interventions on HIV spreading in the adult population of Ndhiwa subcounty (Nyanza Province, Kenya). METHODS A mathematical model was(More)
BACKGROUND Mathematical models have played important roles in the understanding of epidemics and in the study of the impacts of various behavioral or medical measures. However, modeling accurately the future spread of an epidemic requires context-specific parameters that are difficult to estimate because of lack of data. Our objective is to propose a(More)
PURPOSE In France, the bicycle's modal share is stabilizing after a decline; in some of France's major cities, it has even increased since the 1990s. It is hence relevant to improve the knowledge of the injury risk associated with cycling, compared with other means of transport such as car, walking and powered two-wheeler (PTW) riding. METHODS The injury(More)
