Female Sex and Alzheimer's Risk: The Menopause Connection.

J Prev Alzheimers Dis 2018 ;5(4):225-230

Lisa Mosconi, PhD, Department of Neurology, Weill Cornell Medicine, 428 East 72nd St, Suite 500, Room 407, New York, NY, 10021; Tel: (212) 746-4624, Email:

Along with advanced age and apolipoprotein E (APOE)-4 genotype, female sex is a major risk factor for developing late-onset Alzheimer's disease (AD). Considering that AD pathology begins decades prior to clinical symptoms, the higher risk in women cannot simply be accounted for by their greater longevity as compared to men. Recent investigation into sex-specific pathophysiological mechanisms behind AD risk has implicated the menopause transition (MT), a midlife neuroendocrine transition state unique to females.

Circadian rhythm abnormalities and autonomic dysfunction in patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

PLoS One 2018 6;13(6):e0198106. Epub 2018 Jun 6.

CFS/ME Unit, Vall d'Hebron University Hospital Research Institute, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) patients frequently show autonomic symptoms which may be associated with a hypothalamic dysfunction. This study aimed to explore circadian rhythm patterns in rest and activity and distal skin temperature (DST) and their association with self-reported outcome measures, in CFS/ME patients and healthy controls at two different times of year. Ten women who met both the 1994 CDC/Fukuda definition and 2003 Canadian criteria for CFS/ME were included in the study, along with ten healthy controls matched for age, sex and body mass index.

Unexpected association between subclinical hearing loss and restorative sleep in a middle-aged and elderly Japanese population.

BMC Res Notes 2018 Mar 27;11(1):195. Epub 2018 Mar 27.

Saitama Health Promotion Corporation, 410-1 Yoshimicho, Hikigun, Saitama, 355-0133, Japan.

Objective: Hearing loss may be associated with certain sleep abnormalities. We recently reported that subclinical hearing loss (SHL) was more prevalent in individuals in a broad Japanese population who slept longer than 8 h; however, the underlying mechanism was unknown. Therefore, we investigated the association between SHL and self-reported restorative sleep (RS), assessed by questionnaire, in a database of 33,888 Japanese aged 40-69 years without overt or diagnosed hearing loss (20,225 men, 13,663 women).
