The age of peak performance in women and men duathletes – The paradigm of short and long versions in “Powerman Zofingen”

The main findings of the present study were 1) no difference in the MWR ( ~ 5.5) between short and long distance and higher MWR in the older age groups; 2) in both distances, men were faster than women by ~ 8%; 3) considering the finishers in 5-year age groups, athletes in the age group 20–24 years were the fastest in short distance and athletes in the age group 25–29 years were the fastest in long distance, whereas athletes in the age group 70–74 years were the slowest in both distances; and 4) when the finishers were analyzed in 1-year age groups, the fastest race time was at 22 years and

Tuberculosis in Infancy Twins under the Age of One  with Different Forms of the Disease

Tuberculosis in Infancy Twins under the Age of One with Different Forms of the Disease

Abstract:- Infancy is a period of diminished natural immunity and lack of specific immunity. It is also time of close contact with family members. This facilitates the transmission of the infection of tuberculosis, if someone of the family members is ill. We present twins under the age of one with two different forms of tuberculosis : severe paratracheal lymphadenitis and hematogenous - disseminated tuberculosis. The age and the degree of the involvement made the diagnosis and treatment a difficult process.

The outcome and the  influencing factors of the age of onset in post-mortem of chronic bronchitis patients: a retrospective study

The outcome and the influencing factors of the age of onset in post-mortem of chronic bronchitis patients: a retrospective study

The age of onset was defined as the first occurrence of recurrent cough and sputum, which was reported by the patients in their medical records as a retrospective indicator. Patients were separated into two groups according to the age of onset. The age of Group I was #50 years, while the participants in Group II were .50 years old. The course of disease was detailed through retrospective data and defined as the occurrence of this disease until the patients’ death. The clinical dyspnea index was evaluated using the Hugh Jones Index. The self-reported comorbidities included coronary heart disease (ischemic heart disease, myocardial infarction, and coronary artery disease), diabetes, heart failure, hyperten- sion, malignant tumor, mental disease (depression, mania, dementia), neurological disease, and renal failure (renal func- tion lower than chronic kidney disease [CKD] stage III), all of which were referred from the Charlson Comorbidity Index.

The power of the age standardized incidence rate to discover the gene link between cancer diseases: development of a new epidemiological method to save money, time, and effort for genetic scientists

The power of the age standardized incidence rate to discover the gene link between cancer diseases: development of a new epidemiological method to save money, time, and effort for genetic scientists

This study provides a new epidemiological rule to uncover the gene link between cancer diseases. The concept of direct method of standardization for calculating the age standard- ized incidence rate (ASIR) of a disease is the foundation of our epidemiological rule for this study. Actually, comparing the morbidity and mortality rates in different regions is an essential step in evaluating the health status of an entire population. The crude rates of mor- bidity and mortality are not suitable for comparison when there are different age structures in different populations. Therefore, either direct or indirect methods of standardization can be used to control the variables that may otherwise confound the observed relationship. However, “age” and “sex” are the most commonly used variables in standardization. 1–5

The Age of the Train?

The Age of the Train?

My title this evening is "The age of the train?". Some of you will recognise that I have taken this from a BR advertising slogan of some 10 years ago. I think it fair to say that it was not the happiest of choices of slogan. 10 years ago British Rail was suffering from years of low investment, which left most services off the main inter city routes operated by rolling stock dating from the modernisation plan of the 1950's. I think it was Private Eye which published a spoof advertisement on the theme that the age of the train was far too old. Britain had a Prime Minister who took great pride in the fact that she never travelled by train. At the same time, BR was in the throws of a serious financial crisis, which led the government to appoint a committee to investigate its problems. When that committee - led by Sir David Serpell - reported, its conclusions seemed to presage a more devastating set of rail closures by far than was ever envisaged in the Beeching era. The report saw little reason to subsidise rail services, and little hope of avoiding subsidy without massive closures, amounting to up to 86% of the rail network.

A Phase I study evaluating the effect of age and weight on the pharmacokinetics of an injectable formulation of diclofenac solubilized with hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin

A Phase I study evaluating the effect of age and weight on the pharmacokinetics of an injectable formulation of diclofenac solubilized with hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin

All 88 subjects enrolled in the age- and weight-based cohorts completed the study. The demographic characteristics of the study population are summarized in Table 1. In total, there were 36 male subjects and 52 female subjects enrolled. PK analysis in the subjects in the age-based cohort showed no effect of age (in subjects aged 55–82 years) on the expo- sure of IV HP β CD-diclofenac. Mean plasma diclofenac concentration–time curves were similar for the three age groups examined (Figure 2A), and overall, mean diclofenac PK parameter values were similar between groups (Table 2). Data from patients ≥ 75 years old suggest possible increases in t 1/2 and V z , as well as a possible decrease in λ z , compared to the other two age groups in the cohort; however, the low number of subjects in this group (n = 3) limits the conclusions that can be drawn. Similar to results from the age-based cohort, mean plasma diclofenac concentration–time curves were essentially the same for the five groups in the weight- based cohort (Figure 2B). Mean diclofenac PK parameter values were also similar across groups in the weight-based cohort, although there was a general trend toward increased CL and V z in higher weight groups (Table 3).

Facial Age Estimation with Age Difference

Facial Age Estimation with Age Difference

Abstract - Human Face recognition remains a significant problem in now a day in computer vision and pattern recognition. Estimating the correct age or age group is a most difficult problem in recent algorithms. To overcome this problem we need a better algorithms. In earlier days there were no better algorithms to detect any age labels or groups. So further we are implementing the better concept to provide accurate age group and age gender which contains the weakly labeled data through the deep convolutional neural network (CNN). This is being calculated using entropy loss and cross entropy loss is to be applied on single image to exhibit a singular peak value. Using the combination of these entropy losses we can derive the neural network to predict the age group. The images taken are being attached with dates more the one thousand or more taken into the system database. In this database each image or a picture is attached with the timestamp and people identity. Finally, at the end the estimation of the age will be calculated and also the age gender is also calculated which is advantage for the proposed method. This can estimate the age difference correctly and performance will be improved in the system.

The influence of age on health valuations: the older olds prefer functional independence while the younger olds prefer less morbidity

The influence of age on health valuations: the older olds prefer functional independence while the younger olds prefer less morbidity

This current study provides evidence that the relative weights of health domains vary by the age of the raters who assessed the described health states; the older olds preferred functional independence while the younger olds preferred less mor- bidity. These variations imply that the preference weights that were obtained in our previous study and were used to establish TOPICS-CEP are a result of our random selec- tion of participants. Therefore, we adjusted the preference

Determining Chronological Age for the Treatment of Class I, II and III Malocclusion in the Crowd of Iranians

Determining Chronological Age for the Treatment of Class I, II and III Malocclusion in the Crowd of Iranians

The survey was carried out to determine the type of malocclusion, the highest frequency of malocclusion was Class II with frequency 286 and frequency percentage of 59.58% and after that class III with 109 frequency and frequency percentage of 22.7% and the last was class I with frequency 85 and frequency percentage of 17.7%. Estimation of the physiologic age of in all three classes of malocclusion was statistically significant (P <0.001) in patients with Class 1 malocclusion, the most frequent skeletal stage at the age range of 8-12 years was CS1 and at the age range of 13-16 years was CS4. In patients with Class 2 malocclusion, the most frequent skeletal stage at the age range of 8-13 years was CS1, CS4 at the age range of 13- 15 years and CS5 at age range 15-16 years. In patients with Class 3 malocclusion, the most frequent skeletal stage in the age range of 8-11 years was CS1, in the age range of 12-13 years was CS2, in the age range of 13-14 years was CS3 & in the age range of 14-16 CS4 and CS5.

Age of Laboratory Hamster and Human: Drawing the Connexion

Age of Laboratory Hamster and Human: Drawing the Connexion

There are proposed formulae correlating bone length and age and can serve as a reliable parameter if the measurements are precise. In the experimental animals, prediction of age is mediated mainly via analysis of the upper and lower limb bones and those of the hip joints. In the pre-pubertal phase of laboratory animal, there is metopic suture closure and ossificcenters emergewhich serve as their age indicators. Growth of the epiphyseal plates as well as their closure indicates the onset of sexual life in most of the mammals(Kilborn et al., 2002). In humans, epiphyseal closurein the upper body portions (namely: shoulder joint, humerus, ulna, radius wrist, metacarpals and phalanges) are observed at 14-18 years of age, while the lower portions (tibia and femur) close during the age of 18-25 years. Early adulthood is characterised by bone remodelling and maintenance, while late adulthood by bone wears and tears. Epiphyseal evaluation involves detailed analysisof skeletal remains and radiological interventions of the fleshed material(Kohn et al., 1997).

No such correlation was found when we analyzed all individuals as a single group, as individual patients, and as control individuals (data not shown). This finding suggests that age in this age span does not significantly influence Treg cell populations.

School Starting Age and Early Age Provision

School Starting Age and Early Age Provision

Northern Ireland has the lowest compulsory school starting age in Europe at four years. While there has been much debate about the age at which children should begin primary school, there is no clear agreement regarding an optimum starting age. Nonetheless, there is a degree of consensus on the appropriate content of early years education for children from the age of three years, namely that it should emphasise areas of learning rather than particular subjects, with a focus on play and activity, allowing children to take responsibility for their own learning.

Age-related disruption of the lamina dura: Evidence in the mandibular horizontal incompletely impacted third molar

Age-related disruption of the lamina dura: Evidence in the mandibular horizontal incompletely impacted third molar

dura could be influenced by pathogenic events, especially chronic and/or acute pericoronitis, which could increase with age, although disruption of the lamina dura may affect biological defense due to chronic inflammation. To study the risk factors affecting the lamina dura, circumstances such as alveolar bone resorption and oral hygiene were analyzed in subjects over the age of 31 years. However, with an exception for men, the number of treated teeth and the number of decayed teeth we found no correlation between disruption of the lamina dura and alveolar bone resorption in the canine and first molar regions, between disruption of the lamina dura and the number of teeth lost in our analysis. Thus, our findings show that age-related decline of the lamina dura is identified and is independent of alveolar bone resorption in both men and women. This might indicate that prediction of alveolar bone resorption is difficult to associate with disruption of the lamina dura because of slow alveolar bone loss progression, as noted by Hirschmann, 26 and various other factors.

Antidepressants and age

Antidepressants and age

One way to depict the hump-shaped age profile is to do so graphically, as in Charts 1 and 2. To construct these graphs, we use a different and less parametrically restrictive estimation method than in the equations of the Tables. Instead of six age-band variables, a separate dummy variable for (almost) every year of age from 15 up to 90 is now entered in the antidepressant-use regression equation. There is one caveat; because sample sizes become small at higher ages, the exact approach was the following. Above age 80, we grouped together the people aged 82 and 83 and plotted them on the chart as 81.5 years; similarly, we grouped those aged 84 and 85 and plotted them as 84.5; we grouped all individuals from 86-97 and plotted them as a weighted average assigned on the chart axis to age 88. While simple, this method ensures that sample sizes for dots situated along the sparse part of the age range in the graphs are always based on at least a cell-size of 0.5% or N=200. The same independent variables as before, with the exception of the banded age variables, are also included in the regression specifications in the two charts.
