CONCLUSIONS: This review highlights the feasibility and possible benefits of MBSR and MBCT for older adults. Additional large scale RCTs conducted with older adults coping with the range of physical, behavioral, and cognitive challenges older adults commonly face still are needed. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: MBSR may be a promising intervention for older adults experiencing a variety of health concerns and possibly even cognitive decline. MBCT may reduce geriatric anxiety, although its effects on geriatric depression were not measured. PMID: 30204557 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In conclusion, HSC ageing is characterised by reduced self-renewal, myeloid and platelet HSC skewing, and expanded clonal haematopoiesis that is considered a preleukaemic state. The underlying molecular mechanisms seem to be related to increased oxidative stress due to ROS accumulation and DNA damage, which are influenced by both cell- and cell non-autonomous mechanisms such as prolonged exposure to infections, inflammageing, immunosenescence, and age-related changes in the HSC niche. Thus, HSC ageing seems to be multifactorial and we are only beginning to connect all the dots. The Price of Progress or the Waste...

This study was designed to analyze the relationship between the presence and severity of depression and low back pain (LBP) in a representative sample of the general population using a self-report screening questionnaire for depression. Summary of Background Data. There is increasing evidence supporting an association between depression and LBP. However, the degree of the association between these two conditions in the general population is poorly understood. Methods. Health surveys and examinations were conducted on a nationally representative sample (n = 7550) of Koreans. LBP status was determined by a simple s...

Depressed patients frequently report a broad range of body-related symptoms and phenomena such as decreased feelings of vitality; negative appraisal of the body, loss of sexual interest; and physical complaints like chronic joint pain, limb pain, back pain and gastrointestinal problems (Trivedi, 2004). Furthermore, studies have shown a positive association between depression and psychomotor retardation (Bennabi et al., 2013; Lecrubier, 2006) as expressed in, among others, decreased gait, restricted sensorimotor space (Fuchs and Schlimme, 2009; Michalak et al., 2009) and increased standing phases and slumped posture with re...

Conclusions: The findings of this study suggest a very small favorable average effect on relevant health outcomes of additional serious gaming during multidisciplinary rehabilitation. The indication that serious gaming could be a relatively time-efficient component warrants further research into if, when, how, and for which patients serious gaming could be cost-effective in treatment and why.
