Article
Full-text available
Background: Biological aging may be a robust biomarker of dementia or cognitive performance. This systematic review synthesized the evidence for an association between epigenetic aging and dementia, mild cognitive impairment and cognitive function. Methods: A systematic search was conducted according to Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Revi...
Article
Introduction Poor health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is associated with higher morbidity and mortality in patient populations. However, whether HRQoL is associated with health outcomes among community-dwelling older people requires further investigation. This study aimed to examine whether HRQoL predicts cognitive decline, dementia, cardiovascu...
Article
Introduction Poorer physical health-related quality of life (HRQoL) has been shown to predict a higher risk of adverse health outcomes including cognitive decline, cardiovascular disease, and mortality among community-dwelling older individuals. However, little is known about how physical HRQoL changes over time in older people and the predictors o...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose Physical health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is associated with adverse health outcomes, including hospitalizations and all-cause mortality. However, little is known about how physical HRQoL changes over time in older people and the predictors of this trajectory. This study (a) identified trajectories of physical HRQoL among older people...
Article
Background: An international systematic review concluded that individuals with poor social health (social isolation, lack of social support or loneliness) are 30% more likely to develop coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke. Notably, the two included Australian papers reported no association between social health and CHD or stroke. Objective:...
Article
Study objective The aim of this study was to identify whether physical component score (PCS) of health-related quality of life trajectories over 4.7-years predicted subsequent risk of incident fatal and non-fatal CVD events, and all-cause mortality. Methods This study included 16,871 community-dwelling people aged ≥65 years enrolled in the ASPREE...
Article
Full-text available
Previous studies have revealed that poor health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is associated with a higher risk of hospital readmission and mortality in patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). The association between HRQoL and incident CVD is still limited for general older people. This study explored the associations between baseline HRQoL an...
Article
Full-text available
Background Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is a measure of an individual’s self-perceived health status. Few studies have examined HRQoL as a risk factor for mortality. This study examined whether HRQoL predicts all-cause mortality in older community-dwelling individuals from Australia and the United States enrolled in the Aspirin in Reducin...
Article
Research suggests that optimism and pessimism should be studied as two distinct constructs rather than as unidimensional, at opposing ends of a continuum. Optimism and pessimism have different associations with health-related behaviours, coping style, and a number of health outcomes. This study aimed to systematically review the evidence on the ass...
Article
Background Lower health-related quality of life (HRQoL) has been shown to predict a higher risk of hospital readmission and mortality in patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). Few studies have explored the associations between HRQoL and incident CVD. We explored the associations between baseline HRQoL and incident and fatal CVD in community-dw...
Article
Identification of factors which influence health after a cardiovascular disease (CVD) event will assist with reducing the high health and economic burden of CVD. We undertook a systematic review to investigate the association between social health (lower social isolation, higher social support and lower loneliness) and health and well‐being after a...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose Previous research has demonstrated that lower health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is associated with higher morbidity and mortality, especially in-patient groups. The association of HRQoL with all-cause mortality in community samples requires further investigation. This study aimed to examine whether HRQoL predicts all-cause mortality in...
Article
Background: Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) has been shown to predict adverse health outcome in the general population. Objective: We examined the cross-sectional association between HRQoL and cognitive performance at baseline. Next, we explored whether baseline HRQoL predicted 5-year incident cognitive decline and dementia and whether th...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Quality of life (QoL) is multi-dimensional concept of an individual' general well-being status in relation to their value, environment, cultural and social context in which they live. This study aimed to quantitatively synthesise available evidence on the association between QoL and mortality in the general population. Methods: An elect...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Cognitive aging is a dynamic process in late life with significant heterogeneity across individuals. Objective: To review the evidence for latent classes of cognitive trajectories and to identify the associated predictors and outcomes. Methods: A systematic search was performed in MEDLINE and EMBASE for articles that identified two or...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Differential treatment allocation may impact on clinical phenotype in MS and in turn upon quality of life (QoL). Objectives: (a) Investigate the association between disease-modifying drugs (DMDs) use and relapse frequency, disability, clinically significant fatigue, and physical and mental health-related QoL among participants with MS r...
Article
Full-text available
Background Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a complex, demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Fatigue is commonly reported by people with MS (PwMS). MS-related fatigue severely affects daily activities, employment, socioeconomic status, and quality of life. Objective We conducted this systematic review and meta-analysis to determine whethe...

We conducted a cross sectional study among children aged 12-13 years in Yongon, Myanmar to assess the oral health status and oral hygiene habits. The studied 220 students were from two high schools, one urban and the other rural. We conducted an oral health examination following WHO criteria and used a self-administrated questionnaire. The prevalen...
