Factors influencing enrollment of African Americans in the Look AHEAD trial.
Clin Trials
PUBLISHED: 11-07-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Many factors have been identified that influence the recruitment of African Americans into clinical trials; however, the influence of eligibility criteria may not be widely appreciated. We used the experience from the Look AHEAD (Action for Health in Diabetes) trial screening process to examine the differential impact eligibility criteria had on the enrollment of African Americans compared to other volunteers.

The effect of intentional weight loss on all-cause mortality in older adults: results of a randomized controlled weight-loss trial.
Am. J. Clin. Nutr.
PUBLISHED: 07-20-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Despite the reported benefits, weight loss is not always advised for older adults because some observational studies have associated weight loss with increased mortality. However, the distinction between intentional and unintentional weight loss is difficult to make in an observational context, so the effect of intentional weight loss on mortality may be clarified in the setting of a randomized controlled trial.

Characterizing upper limb muscle volume and strength in older adults: a comparison with young adults.
J Biomech
PUBLISHED: 04-08-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Aging is associated with the loss of muscle volume (MV) and force leading to difficulties with activities of daily living. However, the relationship between upper limb MV and joint strength has not been characterized for older adults. Quantifying this relationship may help our understanding of the functional declines of the upper limb that older adults experience. Our objective was to assess the relationship between upper limb MV and maximal isometric joint moment-generating capacity (IJM) in a single cohort of healthy older adults (age ? 65 years) for 6 major functional groups (32 muscles). MV was determined from MRI for 18 participants (75.1±4.3 years). IJM at the shoulder (abduction/adduction), elbow (flexion/extension), and wrist (flexion/extension) was measured. MV and IJM measurements were compared to previous reports for young adults (28.6±4.5 years). On average older adults had 16.5% less total upper limb MV compared to young adults. Additionally, older adult wrist extensors composed a significantly increased percentage of upper limb MV. Older adult IJM was reduced across all joints, with significant differences for shoulder abductors (p<0.0001), adductors (p=0.01), and wrist flexors (p<0.0001). Young adults were strongest at the shoulder, which was not the case for older adults. In older adults, 40.6% of the variation in IJM was accounted for by MV changes (p?0.027), compared to 81.0% in young adults. We conclude that for older adults, MV and IJM are, on average, reduced but the significant linear relationship between MV and IJM is maintained. These results suggest that older adult MV and IJM cannot be simply scaled from young adults.

The effect of randomization to weight loss on total mortality in older overweight and obese adults: the ADAPT Study.
J. Gerontol. A Biol. Sci. Med. Sci.
PUBLISHED: 01-15-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Although weight loss reduces risk for comorbid diseases, many observational studies suggest that weight loss is associated with increased mortality risk, leading to reluctance by clinicians to consider weight reduction as a strategy to maintain health and independence in older adults. However, whether the observed weight loss is intentional is difficult to determine and may not accurately represent the mortality risk associated with intentional weight reduction. Data from the Arthritis, Diet, and Activity Promotion Trial (ADAPT) were used to determine whether randomization to a weight reduction program was associated with total mortality in overweight/obese older adults.

Prevalence of overweight and obesity in youth with diabetes in USA: the SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth study.
Pediatr Diabetes
PUBLISHED: 05-15-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Obesitys association with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is well established, but is less clear with type 1 diabetes (T1DM). We calculated the prevalence of overweight and obesity among diabetic youth in the USA from a six-center, population-based study of racially and ethnically diverse youth with diabetes, and we compared these rates with estimates among nondiabetic youth.

Adiponectin and arterial stiffness in youth with type 1 diabetes: the SEARCH for diabetes in youth study.
J. Pediatr. Endocrinol. Metab.
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Persons with type 1 diabetes are at increased risk of developing vascular disease. Adiponectin concentrations may play an intermediate role in this process. We sought to determine whether adiponectin is correlated with vascular stiffness in adolescents with type 1 diabetes. Plasma adiponectin, pulse wave velocity (PWV), augmentation index (AIx-75), and brachial distensibility (BrachD) were collected in 225 adolescents. Outcomes were evaluated by sex, and regression models were used to determine whether adiponectin was an independent determinant of arterial stiffness. Males had lower adiponectin levels and stiffer vessels (lower BrachD, p < 0.01) than females. Unadjusted correlations revealed that adiponectin was correlated with BrachD (p < 0.01) but not PWV and AIx-75. After adjustment, adiponectin was not a significant predictor of BrachD. The most consistent predictors of increased stiffness were age, male sex, blood pressure, obesity, and total cholesterol (p < 0.05). Adiponectins contributions to arterial stiffness appear to be masked by other cardiovascular risk factors in persons with type 1 diabetes.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
