Sarcopenia is an age-related loss of muscle mass and function, leading to disability, morbidity and increased mortality in older people. Given the relatively high prevalence and related- outcome of the disease, correct diagnosis, screening, monitoring and treatment of sarcopenia are needed in clinical practice. Recent researches have focused on cell-free nucleic acids, which are released into the circulation following cell death, as a potential biomarker of aging and systematic inflammation. It seems that the diagnosis and treatment of sarcopenia can be possible by the help of the analysis of cell-free nucleic acids as noninvasive method...

Emerging Non-communicable diseases burden move United Nation to call for 25% reduction by 2025 in premature mortality from non-communicable diseases (NCDs). The World Health Organization (WHO) developed global action plan for prevention and control NCDs, but the countries' contexts, priorities, and health care system might be different. Therefore, WHO expects from countries to meet national commitments to achieve the 25 by 25 goal through adapted targets and action plan. In this regards, sustainable high-level political statement plays a key role in rules and regulation support, and multi-sectoral collaborations to NCDs' prevention and control by considering the sustainable development goals and universal health coverage factors...
