Both the United Kingdom and India are expected to become the first countries to grant emergency regulatory approval for the AstraZeneca and Oxford University vaccine next week, according to a Reuters report. The vaccine, named Covishield by its manufacturers in the subcontinent, the Serum Institute of India (SII), will spearhead India’s January nationwide vaccination programme, which was announced by the Indian Ministry of Health on Sunday. While there are eight Covid-19 vaccines being manufactured in India, Covishield is the frontrunner as it can be stored safely between two and eight degrees Celsius, meaning it can be transported cheaply in normal refrigerators.

Ageing is the process of becoming older. Physiologically ageing can refer to single cells within an organism which have ceased dividing.

Face is an index of Ageing. On looking an individual on the face, hand and body certain changes like dry, dull, glow-less, wrinkled, sagging, thin and patchy and itchy skin are obvious. In addition lines in different directions, dark spots and open spores on the skin may also be seen. If one lifts up the skin over the back of hand it can easily be pinched. As one ages the different facial creases of the face and forehead become prominent. The more the age, the more and the more prominent are the creases on face.

Man is not immortal. The one who is born would definitely get aged and bound to die but the age at which one dies may vary. Ageing affects almost all the organs in the body, thus ageing is a process of diminution of certain functions of different organs in the body. Total failure of certain organs particularly heart, lungs, brain and liver lead to death.

The first sign of ageing is drooping of upper eyelids that make eyes appear smaller. Similarly the upper lip also begins to sink.

Indian-senior-citizens-age-managementAgeing is a physiological, biological, pathological and psychological phenomenon. Thus ageing is a complex entity. Ageing involves number of systems in the body thereby presenting to the scientists in different forms which may be difficult to understand, differentiate and interpret. If the physician is unable to diagnose a disease based on clinical symptoms, signs and investigations, ageing may be considered. Ageing is a syndrome which is mixture of certain diseases, thus ageing present as mixture of signs and symptoms of certain diseases. If in an old individual the physician is confused about the diagnosis, think of ageing. Ageing may affect any number of systems but I label a person as aged if there is involvement of at least three systems in him.

The cause of ageing is still not known though various factors are known based on certain symptoms and signs, and their correlation with certain investigations.

Similarly no treatment is available to stop the progression of ageing though based on certain observations as in preceding paragraph the ageing can be more comfortable and progression may be slowed. World over research is going on if progression of ageing can be stopped and longevity of life of the human beings can be increased. The website is dedicated to think, research, decide, suggest and act in these directions.
