Comparison of two electronic screening tests (culturally neutral &culturally customized) for major and minor neurocognitive disorders. Hell J Nucl Med. 2019 Jan-Apr;22 Suppl:111-122 Authors: Solias AA, Chaldogeridis AE, Batzikosta AV, Tsolaki M Abstract INTRODUCTION: While attempting to test the population for Mild and Major Neurocognitive Disorders (M. - M. N.D.) there are tests in conventional and electronic form which are applied. However, a large proportion of elderly avoids being tested as the process itself causes stress and fatigue. The structure of the tests is often irrelevant to the experiences and life of the elderly as it focuses on the standard arraying of the diagnostic criteria. OBJECTIVES: A) the introduction of a culturally oriented screening test based on folk tradition. B) exploiting the advantages of technology in an electronic version of this test, in order: To be administered by non-specialist and/or people of the elderly's environment. To be given to people with sensory impairments of vision or hearing - speech. METHODOLOGY: 1. Automation of the delivery and evaluation process in order to avoid the bias effect due to differences between examiners. Use of multimedia and innovative interfaces. 2. Application of the electronic version to a sample of 300 people of both sexes and 60+ years old. The evaluation of the culturally customized test will be done on the following axes: Metric Capacity in detection of Major and Mild N...

Conclusion: These results provide a potential mechanism involving AMPK activation/ROS inhibition signaling pathway in osteogenic differentiation of BMSCs enhanced by resveratrol. It suggests that development of therapy towards ROS is an effective way for osteoporosis treatment. PMID: 31438780 [PubMed - in process]
