Associations between Folate Metabolism Enzyme Polymorphisms and Lung Cancer: A Meta-Analysis.In conclusion, this meta-analysis indicated that MTRR rs1801394 was significantly associated with LC in smokers, and MTHFR rs1801133 polymorphisms was also significantly associated with LC in smokers and East Asians. These results suggested that these two polymorphisms could be used to identify individuals at high risk of developing LC in certain populations. PMID: 31661627 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]...

Pelvic Organ ProlapsePelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a common, benign condition in women. For many women, it can cause vaginal bulge and pressure, voiding dysfunction, defecatory dysfunction, and sexual dysfunction, which may adversely affect quality of life. Women in the United States have a 13% lifetime risk of undergoing surgery for POP1. Although POP can occur in younger women, the peak incidence of POP symptoms is in women aged 70 to 79 years2. Given the aging population in the United States,...

Improving Trip and Slip-Resisting Skills in Older People: Perturbation Dose MattersAging negatively affects balance recovery responses following trips and slips. We hypothesize that older people can benefit from brief treadmill-based trip and slip-perturbation exposure despite reduced muscular capacities, but with neuropathology their responsiveness to these perturbations will be decreased. Thus, to facilitate long-term benefits and their generalizability to everyday life, one needs to consider the...
