Prevalence of knee osteoarthritis, lumbar spondylosis, and osteoporosis in Japanese men and women: the research on osteoarthritis/osteoporosis against disability study
The ROAD study will elucidate epidemiological evidence concerning determinants of bone and joint disease by estimating the prevalence of OA and OP, and the number of people affected with these diseases in Japan.

To evaluate the effectiveness of exercise and amino acid supplementation in enhancing muscle mass and strength in community‐dwelling elderly sarcopenic women, a large number of women in this study are obese.
A Randomized Controlled Trial of Multicomponent Exercise in Older Adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment
The results suggested that an exercise intervention is beneficial for improving logical memory and maintaining general cognitive function and reducing whole brain cortical atrophy in older adults with amnestic MCI.

It is concluded that a moderate exercise intervention program plus a home-based program significantly decreases the incidence of falls in both the short and the long term, contributing to improved health and quality of life in the elderly.
Effects of Exercise and Milk Fat Globule Membrane (MFGM) Supplementation on Body Composition, Physical Function, and Hematological Parameters in Community-Dwelling Frail Japanese Women: A Randomized…
This study suggests that interventions including exercise and nutrition can improve frailty status, and Statistically significant additive effects of MFGM with exercise could not be confirmed in this population, and further investigation in larger samples is necessary.
A Large, Cross-Sectional Observational Study of Serum BDNF, Cognitive Function, and Mild Cognitive Impairment in the Elderly
Serum BDNF was associated with lower cognitive test scores and MCI, and future prospective studies should establish the discriminative value of serum BDNF for the risk of MCI.
Effects of multicomponent exercise on cognitive function in older adults with amnestic mild cognitive impairment: a randomized controlled trial
This study indicates that exercise improves or supports, at least partly, cognitive performance in older adults with aMCI.
