low physical activity ( Fried et al. 2001 ). Loss of muscle mass (atrophy) is an inevitable, although somewhat modifiable, process that occurs with ageing ( Sayer et al. 2008 ), when it is referred to as primary sarcopenia. In contrast, secondary

Notch signalling pathway in sarcopenia of ageing. In elegant parabiotic experiments, younger and older animals’ circulations were exchanged, with the Notch pathway appearing to be reactivated in older mice exposed to ‘young’ serum, suggesting a role for

Introduction Age-related muscle wasting and sarcopenia are characterized by the loss of skeletal muscle mass with a gradual decline in muscle function, including a decrease in power-producing capacity, contraction, and relaxation, but also by

Introduction The aging process is the physiological accumulation of changes over time and is unfortunately associated with increased disease susceptibility. Sarcopenia, the age-related and progressive loss of skeletal muscle mass and function

Introduction The loss of muscle mass and strength with aging, also referred to as sarcopenia, is a highly prevalent condition among the elderly and predicts several adverse outcomes, including disability, institutionalization, and mortality. Age

b ). On the contrary, both muscle and bone tissues decrease with age. Muscle mass peaks at the age of approximately 30 years and then gradually declines. There is about 20–40% decrease in muscle mass by the age of 70 years, leading to sarcopenia
