Chemosensory problems challenge health through diminished ability to detect warning odors, consume a healthy diet, and maintain quality of life. We examined the prevalence and associated risk factors of self-reported chemosensory alterations in 3603 community-dwelling adults (aged 40+ years), from the nationally representative, US National Health a...
Conference Paper
Background: Smell impairments disproportionately affect older adults, decreasing detection of warning odors, and increasing risk of altered dietary behaviors and nutritional status. From just released data and new chemosensory protocol in NHANES 2011-2012, we examined, for the first time, associations between self-reported smell impairment and body...
Article
Despite contributing substantially to disability in the United States, age-related hearing loss is an underappreciated public health concern. Loss of hearing sensitivity has been documented in two-thirds of adults aged 70 years and older and has been associated with communication difficulties, lower health-related quality of life, and decreased phy...
Article
The authors estimated the proportion of older adults in the United States who report hearing aid use among those likely to benefit. To more fully understand what factors underlie the low proportion of hearing aid use, the authors examined a variety of socio-demographic correlates as well as measures of health care access and insurance status in rel...
Conference Paper
Introduction: There is evidence that hearing impairment (HI) is associated with depression in ethnically diverse groups. The objective of this study was to determine if Hispanics with HI and reduced hearing-related quality of life (QOL) have more depressive symptoms than Hispanics without HI. Methods: We examined HI and depression in Hispanic adult...
Article
Background: The First International Symposium on Recent Advances in Otitis Media (OM) with Effusion was held in Columbus, Ohio, in 1975. The symposium has been organized in the United States every 4 years since, followed by a research conference to (a) assess major research accomplishments, (b) identify important research questions and opportuniti...

Article
Treatment of isotopically labeled bromophenyldiazirine containing one 15N atom with azide ion produces benzonitrile which contains 50% 15N. This suggests that N-azidodiazirines are intermediates in the reaction. Ab initio calculations predict that N-azidodiazirines will have a very low barrier to decomposition to nitrile and two molecules of nitrog...
