OBJECTIVES: To test whether accelerated sarcopenia in older persons with high interleukin (IL)‐6 serum levels plays a role in the prospective association between inflammation and disability found in many studies.

Serum Albumin and Muscle Strength: A Longitudinal Study in Older Men and Women
TLDR
Whether low serum albumin is associated with low muscle strength and future decline in muscle strength in community‐dwelling older men and women is examined. Expand
Association Between Interleukin‐6 and Lower Extremity Function After Hip Fracture—The Role of Muscle Mass and Strength
TLDR
Whether an effect on muscle mass or strength explains the association between interleukin‐6 (IL‐6) and lower extremity function in the year after hip fracture is examined. Expand
Anemia Is Associated with Disability and Decreased Physical Performance and Muscle Strength in the Elderly
TLDR
To examine the association between anemia and disability, physical performance, and muscle strength in older persons, a large number of older persons with a history of anemia are surveyed. Expand
Inflammatory Biomarkers and Physical Function in Older, Obese Adults with Knee Pain and Self‐Reported Osteoarthritis After Intensive Weight‐Loss Therapy
TLDR
The relationships between proinflammatory biomarkers and self‐reported and performance‐based physical function are described and the effect of weight loss on these markers of inflammation is examined. Expand
Protein Intake and Muscle Strength in Older Persons: Does Inflammation Matter?
TLDR
To examine whether protein intake is associated with change in muscle strength in older persons, the study evaluated whether a synergistic effect exists between protein intake and inflammatory markers on change in Muscle strength. Expand
The Mediating Role of C‐Reactive Protein and Handgrip Strength Between Obesity and Walking Limitation
TLDR
To study the association between different obesity indicators and walking limitation and to examine the role of C‐reactive protein (CRP) and handgrip strength in that association, a large number of participants were obese or overweight. Expand
Inflammation and Frailty in Older Women
TLDR
To evaluate relationships between white blood cell (WBC) count and interleukin‐6 (IL‐6) and prevalent frailty, a large number of animals were vaccinated for WBC and IL‐6 infection. Expand
Muscle Strength and Physical Performance as Predictors of Mortality, Hospitalization, and Disability in the Oldest Old
To evaluate the predictive value of muscle strength and physical performance in the oldest old for all‐cause mortality; hospitalization; and the onset of disability, defined as a decline inExpand
Chronic Kidney Disease and Functional Limitation in Older People: Health, Aging and Body Composition Study
TLDR
To assess whether chronic kidney disease (CKD) is independently associated with incident physical‐function limitation, a large number of patients with confirmed or suspected CKD have undergone surgery or are at risk of undergoing surgery. Expand
D‐Dimer and Inflammatory Markers as Predictors of Functional Decline in Men and Women with and without Peripheral Arterial Disease
TLDR
To determine whether higher circulating levels of inflammatory and thrombotic markers are associated with greater decline in lower extremity performance, a large number of subjects were randomly assigned to either the EMT or non- EMT groups. Expand

Serum IL‐6 Level and the Development of Disability in Older Persons
TLDR
This work tested the hypothesis that high levels of IL‐6 predict future disability in older persons who are not disabled, and found that it does not. Expand
Muscle mass and strength: relation to function in population studies.
  • T. Harris

TLDR
Some potential problems with the sarcopenia-function association in old age are focused on and what little data exist from longitudinal population studies addressing the effect of sarc Openia over time is presented. Expand

TLDR
This review discusses current concepts of the pathogenesis, treatment, and prevention of sarcopenia, the loss of muscle mass and strength with age, which is becoming recognized as a major cause of disability and morbidity in the elderly population. Expand
Enhanced protein breakdown after eccentric exercise in young and older men.
TLDR
It is suggested that eccentric exercise produces a similar increase in whole body protein breakdown in older and young men, but myofibrillar proteolysis may contribute more to whole bodyprotein breakdown in the older group. Expand
Interleukin-6 and selected plasma proteins in healthy persons of different ages
TLDR
IL-6 associated diseases may occur more often with advancing age, but in healthy participants IL-6 does not explain the changing plasma protein pattern resembling that of an acute phase reaction. Expand
Monocyte cytokine production in an elderly population: effect of age and inflammation.
TLDR
The data suggest that dysregulation of some inflammatory cytokines occurs with age, but the role of inflammation in aging remains unclear. Expand
Designing a community study of moderately to severely disabled older women: the Women's Health and Aging Study.
TLDR
The approach used to identify and recruit moderately to severely disabled elderly women in the WHAS is both feasible and applicable to other community-based research where inclusion of elderly people with moderate to severe disability across several areas of functioning is an objective. Expand
New cachexic factors.

  • 1998
TLDR
A sulphated glycoprotein found in the urine of patients with cancer cachexia is capable of directly inducing protein catabolism in skeletal muscle by a process involving an increase in prostaglandin E2, and agents capable of attenuating this effect have been shown to stabilize body weight loss in cachectic cancer patients.

Measuring muscular strength of the lower limbs by hand-held dynamometer: A standard protocol
TLDR
Overall, short-term and long-term test-retest and inter-rater reliability were very high, with 60% of the intraclass correlation coefficient values above 0.8, and the majority below 0.7. Expand
Elderly humans show prolonged in vivo inflammatory activity during pneumococcal infections.
TLDR
Age was associated with prolonged inflammatory activity and plasma levels of IL-10 and sTNFR-I after 1 week were positively correlated with age, and the declines in sTNfr-I and in the TNFalpha/IL-10 ratio from day 0 to day 7 were correlation with age. Expand
