    • The associations of leg lean mass with foot pain, posture and function in the Framingham foot study 

      McLean, Robert R; Dufour, Alyssa B; Katz, Patricia P; Hillstrom, Howard J; Hagedorn, Thomas J; Hannan, Marian T (BioMed Central, 2014)
      Background: Foot disorders are common in older adults and associated with impaired lower extremity function. Reduced muscle mass may play a role in the etiology of foot disorders and consequent poor function. Methods: We ...
    • Criteria for Clinically Relevant Weakness and Low Lean Mass and Their Longitudinal Association With Incident Mobility Impairment and Mortality: The Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) Sarcopenia Project 

      McLean, Robert R.; Shardell, Michelle D.; Alley, Dawn E.; Cawthon, Peggy M.; Fragala, Maren S.; Harris, Tamara B.; Kenny, Anne M.; Peters, Katherine W.; Ferrucci, Luigi; Guralnik, Jack M.; Kritchevsky, Stephen B.; Kiel, Douglas P.; Vassileva, Maria T.; Xue, Qian-Li; Perera, Subashan; Studenski, Stephanie A.; Dam, Thuy-Tien L. (Oxford University Press, 2014)
      Background. This analysis sought to determine the associations of the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health Sarcopenia Project criteria for weakness and low lean mass with likelihood for mobility impairment (gait ...
    • Cutpoints for Low Appendicular Lean Mass That Identify Older Adults With Clinically Significant Weakness 

      Cawthon, Peggy M.; Peters, Katherine W.; Shardell, Michelle D.; McLean, Robert R.; Dam, Thuy-Tien L.; Kenny, Anne M.; Fragala, Maren S.; Harris, Tamara B.; Kiel, Douglas P.; Guralnik, Jack M.; Ferrucci, Luigi; Kritchevsky, Stephen B.; Vassileva, Maria T.; Studenski, Stephanie A.; Alley, Dawn E. (Oxford University Press, 2014)
      Background. Low lean mass is potentially clinically important in older persons, but criteria have not been empirically validated. As part of the FNIH (Foundation for the National Institutes of Health) Sarcopenia Project, ...
    • An Evidence-Based Comparison of Operational Criteria for the Presence of Sarcopenia 

      Dam, Thuy-Tien; Peters, Katherine W.; Fragala, Maren; Cawthon, Peggy M.; Harris, Tamara B.; McLean, Robert; Shardell, Michelle; Alley, Dawn E.; Kenny, Anne; Ferrucci, Luigi; Guralnik, Jack; Kiel, Douglas P.; Kritchevsky, Steve; Vassileva, Maria T.; Studenski, Stephanie (Oxford University Press, 2014)
      Background. Several consensus groups have previously published operational criteria for sarcopenia, incorporating lean mass with strength and/or physical performance. The purpose of this manuscript is to describe the ...
    • The FNIH Sarcopenia Project: Rationale, Study Description, Conference Recommendations, and Final Estimates 

      Studenski, Stephanie A.; Peters, Katherine W.; Alley, Dawn E.; Cawthon, Peggy M.; McLean, Robert R.; Harris, Tamara B.; Ferrucci, Luigi; Guralnik, Jack M.; Fragala, Maren S.; Kenny, Anne M.; Kiel, Douglas P.; Kritchevsky, Stephen B.; Shardell, Michelle D.; Dam, Thuy-Tien L.; Vassileva, Maria T. (Oxford University Press, 2014)
      Background. Low muscle mass and weakness are common and potentially disabling in older adults, but in order to become recognized as a clinical condition, criteria for diagnosis should be based on clinically relevant ...
    • Grip Strength Cutpoints for the Identification of Clinically Relevant Weakness 

      Alley, Dawn E.; Shardell, Michelle D.; Peters, Katherine W.; McLean, Robert R.; Dam, Thuy-Tien L.; Kenny, Anne M.; Fragala, Maren S.; Harris, Tamara B.; Kiel, Douglas P.; Guralnik, Jack M.; Ferrucci, Luigi; Kritchevsky, Stephen B.; Studenski, Stephanie A.; Vassileva, Maria T.; Cawthon, Peggy M. (Oxford University Press, 2014)
      Background. Weakness is common and contributes to disability, but no consensus exists regarding a strength cutpoint to identify persons at high risk. This analysis, conducted as part of the Foundation for the National ...
