Aisling O'Halloran wins best abstract award at the European Falls, Frailty and Bone Health (FFBH2017) conference.

Congratulations to TILDA researcher Dr Aisling O’Halloran for winning the best abstract award at the European Falls, Frailty and Bone Health (FFBH2017) conference held in Dublin on 9-10th November 2017. Aisling discussed the inflammatory marker interleukin 18 (IL-18) and Frailty in older adults. Show presented new evidence that IL-18 was significantly higher among older adults living with pre-frailty and frailty after adjustment for other markers of chronic inflammation and health. This indicates IL-18 may be a more informative marker of frailty and biological ageing with potential implications for development of new treatments.
