KLRI Receives Grant From NIH to Study Stress Resilience in Older Adults
Date:8/6/2008

Study to help determine if physical fitness increases the body's ability to recover from mental and oxidative stress in healthy men and women

PHOENIX, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Kronos Longevity Research Institute (KLRI) has been awarded a research grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to conduct research on oxidative stress resilience and its effects on seniors. Previous studies have discovered that older individuals suffer dramatically poorer outcomes [compared to young individuals] when exposed to acute stressors such as illness, injury, exertion or surgery.

The scope of the study will focus on three elements:

1. Determine the effects of physical fitness on oxidative stress resilience.

2. Determine the effects of physical fitness on neuroendocrine stress reactivity, as assessed by measurements of the pituitary-adrenal axis response to a validated psychosocial laboratory stressor, comparing fit and unfit older men and women.

3. Investigate relationships and correlations between intra-individual responses to a defined oxidative stressor and a controlled psychosocial stress stimulus.

Participants in this study will be healthy men and women who are over 60, non-smokers and who do not have a history of high blood pressure, cardiovascular problems or clinical depression.
