Socioeconomic factors and all cause and cause-specific mortality among older people in Latin America, India, and China: a population-based cohort study.
(PloS Medicine, 2012)
Even in low and middle income countries most deaths occur in older adults. In Europe, the effects of better education and home ownership upon mortality seem to persist into old age, but these effects may not generalise ...
The prevalence, correlates, detection and control of diabetes among older people in low and middle incomecountries: a 10/66 dementia research group population-based survey.
(PloS Medicine, 2016)
Little is known of the epidemiology of diabetes among older people in low and middle income countries. We aimed to study and compare prevalence, social patterning, correlates, detection, treatment and control of diabetes ...
The prevalence, correlates and impact of anaemia among older people in Cuba, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Venezuela.
(British Journal of Haematology, 2013)
Anaemia among older people is increasingly recognized as a matter of public health concern. Data from low- and middleincome countries are sparse. We surveyed 10915 people aged 65 years and over (8423 with blood tests) in ...
Dementia severity and weight loss: a comparison across eight cohorts. the 10/66 study.
(Alzheimer's & Dementia, 2013)

No association between fish intake and depression in over 15,000 older adults from seven low and middle income countries-the 10/66 study.
(PloS ONE, 2012)
Evidence on the association between fish consumption and depression is inconsistent and virtually nonexistent from low- and middle-income countries. Using a standard protocol, we aim to assess the association of fish ...
Reproductive period, endogenous estrogen exposure and dementia incidence among women in Latin America and China: a 10/66 population-based cohort study.
(PloS Medicine, 2018)
Exposure to endogenous estrogen may protect against dementia, but evidence remains equivocal. Such effects may be assessed more precisely in settings where exogenous estrogen administration is rare. We aimed to ...

(BMC Neurology, 2009)
1) To report site-specific normative values by age, sex and educational level for four components of the 10/66 Dementia Research Group cognitive test battery; 2) to estimate the main and interactive effects of age, sex, ...
The epidemiology of dependency among urban-dwelling older people in the Dominican Republic: a cross-sectional survey.
(BMC Public Health, 2008)
Demographic ageing, and the health transition will soon lead to large increases in the number of dependent older people in low and middle income countries. Despite its importance, this topic has not previously been ...
Frailty and the prediction of dependence and mortality in low- and middle-income countries: a 10/66 population based cohort study.
(BMC Medicine, 2015)
In countries with high incomes, frailty indicators predict adverse outcomes in older people, despite a lack of consensus on definition or measurement. We tested the predictive validity of physical and multidimensional ...
