This study aims to address this gap.MethodsThe study used data from the Nihon University Japanese Longitudinal Study of Aging (NUJLSOA) and incidence-based multistate life tables to estimate disabled and disability-free life expectancy based on the stroke status of Japanese residents aged 65 and older.ResultsJapanese stroke survivors aged 65 who experienced an initial disability-free state could expect to live approximately 3 fewer total years of life, 4 –5 fewer years in a disability-free state, and 1–2 more years in a disabled state compared to those without history of a stroke (p

Abstract In Type II lepromatous reaction, there is exacerbation of humoral immunity, classified as Gell &Coombs Type III hypersensitivity reaction. It is more common in lepromatous borderline (LB) and lepromatous lepromatous (LL) patients. Our objective was to study the clinical and laboratorial expressions of lepromatous Type II reactions, establishing concordances between them, and for this the medical records of leprosy patients observed at the Clementino Fraga Filho University Hospital of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (HUCFF/UFRJ) were reviewed. There were a total of 358 leprosy cases over a per...

In this study, AT1-AAs were detected in the sera of patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and the positive rate was 44.44% vs. 17.46% in non-PAD volunteers. In addition, analysis showed that AT1-AAs level was positively correlated with PAD. To reveal the causal relationship between AT1-AAs and vascular aging, an AT1-AAs-positive rat model was established by active immunization. The carotid pulse wave velocity was higher, and the aortic endothelium-dependent vasodilatation was attenuated significantly in the immunized rats. Morphological staining showed thickening of the aortic wall. Histological examination showe...

This article explores the creation of a new social welfare system for physically disabled veterans and civilians of the Great War in Belgium during the early interwar period. Through an analysis of debates among ministers and legislators, doctor's opinions and the member's periodicals of the two largest national associations for war-wounded veterans and civilians it examines how these actors shaped a new set of benefits that caused significant socio-economic inequalities inside and between both groups of victims and in relation to physically disabled citizens without war injuries. Consequently, this article reveals how the...
