An overview of the Nottingham Research Programme on Primary Breast Cancer in Older Women: breast cancer in older women (2021)
Journal Article

The incidence of breast cancer increases with age. Despite this, most research in this field is aimed at the younger patient. Preliminary studies have shown that older women with breast cancer have distinct biological features compared to their young...

Omega-3 supplementation during unilateral resistance exercise training in older women: A within subject and double-blind placebo-controlled trial (2021)
Journal Article

Background & aims: The skeletal muscle anabolic effects of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) appear favoured towards women; a property that could be exploited in older women who typically exhibit poor muscle growth responses to resistance ex...

A retrospective cohort study was con... Read More about Clinical cost evaluation and health benefits of post-bariatric intervention for patients with type 2 diabetes living in the UK.

Six weeks of high-intensity interval training enhances contractile activity induced vascular reactivity and skeletal muscle perfusion in older adults (2021)
Journal Article

Impairments in muscle microvascular function are associated with the pathogenesis of sarcopenia and cardiovascular disease. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is an intervention by which a myriad of beneficial skeletal muscle/cardiovascular adap...

Does Breast Cancer Surgery Impact Functional Status and Independence in Older Patients? A Narrative Review (2021)
Journal Article

Surgery is the recommended treatment modality for primary breast cancer. Breast cancer surgery is non-visceral; therefore, it is often assumed that the subsequent impact on functional status in older women is less significant compared to other cancer...

Concordance between core needle biopsy and surgical excision specimens for Ki-67 in breast cancer–a systematic review of the literature (2021)
Journal Article

Aims: The biomarkers oestrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) are routinely measured in patients with breast cancer with international consensus on how they should be interpreted. There i... Read More about Concordance between core needle biopsy and surgical excision specimens for Ki-67 in breast cancer–a systematic review of the literature.
