ABSTRACT: Menopause timing has a major impact on infertility and risk of disease. Younger age at natural (nonsurgical) menopause (ANM) is associated with a higher risk of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes and a lower risk of breast cancer. Late menopause is associated with a higher risk of breast cancer. It is well known that the age at which women go through menopause is partly determined by genes, but the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. Genome-wide associat...

Stephanie London, Martin Tobin and colleagues report meta-analyses of genome-wide association studies for forced vital capacity (FVC), a spirometric measure of pulmonary function that reflects lung volume. They identify six regions newly associated with FVC and demonstrate that candidate genes at these loci are expressed in lung tissue and primary lung cells.

Summary Background and objective The association of large arterial rigidity and kidney function decline in longitudinal analyses is not well established. This study evaluated the association of aortic pulse wave velocity (aPWV) and pulse pressure (PP) with rapid kidney function decline and incident CKD in the Health, Aging and Body Composition study. Design, setting, participants, & measurements Participants were 2129 older adults with a baseline measurement of aPWV, PP, and cystatin C and at le...

Background and Purpose—Arterial stiffness is a measure of subclinical cardiovascular disease and increases with age. This study examines the association between arterial stiffness and cognitive decline in a cohort of older adults. Methods—A total of 2488 subjects with baseline measure of arterial stiffness (mean age, 74.2 years; 52.3% women) were prospectively followed over 9 years in the Health, Aging, and Body Composition Study. Arterial stiffness was measured as pulse wave velocity (PWV) and ...

Background: In older adults, every 0.1-m/s slower gait speed is associated with a 12% higher mortality. However, little research has identified risk factors for gait-speed decline. Objective: We assessed the association between several measures of body composition and age-related decline in gait speed. Design: Data were from 2306 older adults who were participating in the Health, Aging, and Body Composition cohort and were followed for 4 y (50% women; 38% black). Usual walking speed (m/s) over 2...

Background— The PR interval, as measured by the resting, standard 12-lead ECG, reflects the duration of atrial/atrioventricular nodal depolarization. Substantial evidence exists for a genetic contribution to PR, including genome-wide association studies that have identified common genetic variants at 9 loci influencing PR in populations of European and Asian descent. However, few studies have examined loci associated with PR in African Americans. Methods and Results— We present results from the ...

OBJECTIVES: To examine the association between hospitalization and annual changes in body composition and strength in older adults. DESIGN: Cohort study. SETTING: Clinic examinations in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, or Memphis, Tennessee. PARTICIPANTS: Well-functioning adults aged 70 to 79 who participated in the Health, Aging and Body Composition Study. MEASUREMENTS: Hospitalizations were reported at annual clinic visits and in semiannual phone interviews. In the event of death or reported hospital...

Background —The recently developed and internally validated Health ABC HF model uses nine routinely available clinical variables to determine incident heart failure risk. In this study, we sought to externally validate the Health ABC HF model. Methods and Results —Observed 5-year incidence of heart failure, defined as first hospitalization for new onset heart failure, was compared with 5-year risk estimates derived from the Health ABC HF model among participants without heart failure at baseline...
