And Now for some news ….
The Aging Brain and Physical Activity
Physical activity (PA) can be neuroprotective and reduce the risk for Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
In assessing physical activity, caloric expenditure is a proxy marker reflecting the sum total of multiple physical activity types conducted by an individual.
A recent study was published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease to assess caloric expenditure, as a proxy marker of Physical activity, as a predictive measure of gray matter (GM) volumes in the normal and cognitively impaired elderly persons.
Higher energy output, from a variety of physical activity types, was associated with larger gray matter volumes in frontal, temporal, and parietal lobes, as well as hippocampus, thalamus, and basal ganglia.
High levels of caloric expenditure moderated neurodegeneration-associated volume loss in the precuneus, posterior cingulate, and cerebellar vermis.
The study concluded that increasing energy output from a variety of physical activities is related to larger gray matter volumes in the elderly, regardless of cognitive status.

Radiographic Progression of Rheumatoid Arthritis Flare Ups
Disease flares are common in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and are related to structural damage. However, few data on the impact of flares reported by patients on radiographic progression are available.
The aim of a recent study published in the journal Arthritis Research and Therapy, was to investigate whether overall flares (OF), self-reported flares (SRF) and short flares assessed at the visit (SF) predict radiographic progression in rheumatoid arthritis patients in DAS28 (28-joint disease activity score) remission.
The study concluded that overall flares and self-reported flares are predictors of structural damage.
Flares assessed at the visit, short flares, do not impact on radiographic progression as they might underestimate the actual number of flares.
