Predictive Accuracy of Frailty Tools for Adverse Outcomes in a Cohort of Adults 80 Years and Older: A Decision Curve Analysis

E. Hegendörfer , B. Vaes, G. Van Pottelbergh, et al.

J Am Med Dir Assoc. 2019 Oct 30. pii: S1525-8610(19)30646-2. doi: 10.1016/j.jamda.2019.08.029. [Epub ahead of print]

The aim was to compare the predictive performance of 3 frailty identification tools for mortality, hospitalization, and functional decline in adults aged ≥80 years using risk reclassification statistics and decision curve analysis.

Circulating Micronutrient Biomarkers Are Associated With 3 Measures of Frailty: Evidence From the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing

A.M. O'Halloran, E.J. Laird, J. Feeney, et al.

J Am Med Dir Assoc. 2020;21(2):240-247.e5. doi: 10.1016/j.jamda.2019.06.011. Epub 2019 Aug 7.

The aim was to examine the associations between 3 frailty instruments and circulating micronutrients in a large representative sample of older adults.

Association of fatty acid consumption with frailty and mortality among middle-aged and older adults

K. Jayanama, O. Theou, J. Godin, et al.

Nutrition. 2020;70:110610. doi: 10.1016/j.nut.2019.110610. Epub 2019 Oct 11.

Despite their role in health and disease, the relationship between fatty acids (FAs) and frailty and mortality remains unclear. The aim of this study was to explore how FA intake is associated with frailty and mortality.

Exploring the potential of salivary and blood immune biomarkers to elucidate physical frailty in institutionalized older women

G.E. Furtado, M. Uba Chupel, L. Minuzzi, et al.

Exp Gerontol. 2020;129:110759. doi: 10.1016/j.exger.2019.110759. Epub 2019 Oct 31.

Identification of older populations at increased risk of physical frailty using biochemical approaches could improve screening accuracy. The aim of this study was to study the relationship between immune markers and independent components of physical frailty in institutionalized older women.

The impact of frailty on healthcare resource use: a longitudinal analysis using the Clinical Practice Research Datalink in England

L. Han, A. Clegg, T. Doran, et al.

Age Ageing. 2019 ;48(5):665-671. doi: 10.1093/ageing/afz088.

Routine frailty identification and management is national policy in England, but there remains a lack of evidence on the impact of frailty on healthcare resource use. We evaluated the impact of frailty on the use and costs of general practice and hospital care.

The accumulation of deficits approach to describe frailty

R. Lachmann, M. Stelmach-Mardas, M.M. Bergmann, et al.

PLoS One. 2019 Oct 15;14(10):e0223449. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0223449. eCollection 2019

The advancing age of the participants of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)-Potsdam study was the incentive to investigate frailty as a major parameter of ageing. The aim of this study was to develop a multidimensional tool to measure frailty in an ageing, free-living study population.
