The Invecchiare in Chianti study (InCHIANTI)
The main goal is to translate epidemiological research into geriatric clinical tools that makes possible more precise diagnosis and more effective treatment in older persons with mobility problems. In particular, the plan is: 1. study how the various physiological subsystems that are important for mobility interact with age in causing disability; 2. develop reference values for the integrity and functionality of the different physiologic subsystems that are implicated in mobility, to be used in clinical practice; 3. look at risk factors for the development of “soft” neurological impairments in the absence of neurological disease that is already clinically evident; 4. identify biomarkers of disregulation of the biological network of signals that maintain a stable homeostasis equilibrium after a distressful event, such as a disease or injury; 5. scientific evidence relevant to public health, prevention and intervention trials. **firstname.lastname@example.org**
