Example text

Unlike prevalence studies, case studies may have a follow-up on the subject to learn the nature of the illness described; this aspect is shared in the case series design. In the example chosen to illustrate a case study from the set of older adults, a case is described of systemic lupus erythematosus accompanied by primary biliary cirrhosis [7]. The illness in other age groups is not common, and much less so in older adults, so that in the description of the particular characteristics found, new knowledge from the case may be learned.

Globally multiple investigations in the biomedical area are trying to identify the molecular, genetic, genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic factors (among others) involved in the aging process, in order to be translated into an adequate health status for an aging population. However, most studies have low power to detect small changes in relation to age in animal models or in humans. This raises the emerging need for studies to increase the power and contemplate the effect of the interaction of multiple factors in the aging process.
