Protein predicts disability risk in the elderly:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Scientists have identified a protein that could help predict the onset of certain types of physical disability in the elderly. Individuals with higher circulating levels of interleukin-6, an immune system protein that plays a role in inflammation, were more likely to have a mobility disability than those with the lowest concentrations, according to a study of 633 people over the age of 65. The study, led by Dr Luigi Ferrucci of the National Institute of Aging in Bethesda, Maryland, appears in the June issue of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.
