    本研究は、若年成人期・中年期の生活習慣や健康状態(健診成績)と高齢期の健康状態との関連を調べることを目的としており、2018年に退職者に対して、フレイルや認知機能の評価、腹部超音波、社会参加の状況の調査等を含む包括的な調査を実施した。今年度は、同調査結果のデータクリーニングを完了し、統計解析を実施した。そのうち、2002年の血糖値と16年後の認知機能が負に関連することを見出した結果は第30回日本疫学会で報告した。また腹部超音波検査の結果を活用して高齢者における生活習慣と脂肪肝等の関連を分析した。
    また本研究では、研究ベースとなっている愛知職域コホート研究の在職者の生活習慣等の継続的な調査及び対象者の追跡調査を、継続して実施することとしており、2018年に生活習慣調査と病歴スクリーニング調査を実施した。今年度は、2018年病歴スクリーニング調査結果に基づき、その詳細を主治医を通して調べる採録調査を実施した。さらに追跡調査の一環として退職者を対象とした病歴スクリーニング調査を実施した。同時に、健診成績を収集・データベース化した。追跡調査結果を使用した統計解析を継続して実施したが、特定健診判定区分と糖尿病発症リスクの関連を検討した結果は第30回日本疫学会ならびにJournal of Diabetes Investigationに報告した。また、心血管疾患の追跡調査結果を用いて、急性冠血管疾患、脳卒中に関連する要因についての検討も行った。
    データベース化は完了し、認知機能との関連については論文化を目指して解析を進めている。フレイル、社会参加と在職時の状況との関連性についても解析準備が整っている。
    2019年度に実施した退職者に対する病歴スクリーニング調査結果を入力し、データベース化を行う。その結果に基づき、主治医に対する詳細な調査を実施する。保存検体を用いたバイオマーカー測定を行い、病態メカニズムの解明や疾病リスク予測に関する検討を行う。

    The ACP educational program content was developed and conducted in Akita, Nagoya, Himeji, and Tokushima. The face-to-face program consisted of one 30 m lecture and three 1 h sessions: a role play session in which pairs of participants practiced giving information on artificial nutrition and cardiopulmonary resuscitation by using pictures in an ACP interview, a role play session with two scenarios in which participants learned how to start and keep an ACP conversation with cancer or non-cancer older patients, and case studies and discussions of two individuals with a unique life story. Quantitative and qualitative data on learning impacts were analyzed comparing pre, post, and follow-up examination. The study proved the impacts of the community-based, easily disseminatable, and efficient ACP educational program on attitudes and practices of Japanese care managers.

    Substance abuse among the young generation in Palau, a pacific island country, is a critical public health concern. In addition to betel nut chewing as a traditional practice, tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, and other illicit drug uses are prevalent. To investigate the social determinants of substance abuse comprehensively, we adopted both epidemiological and sociological approaches. We focused on people’s perceptions of substance use and of its risks, especially differences among different substances. According to our findings, the prevalence of current use of each substance was very high. Thus, substance use is a very close issue in young people’s daily lives. Although risk perceptions of substance use were high, they were not necessarily connected to the current use. Tobacco and marijuana uses were more associated to the perceptions of peers than of parents. Current betel nut chewing was strongly related to parental (dis)approvals.

    We conducted epidemiological surveys and qualitative studies regarding noncommunicable disease (NCD) risk factors, targeting migrant foreign workers in Palau and residents of an urban poor community in Bangladesh. We found that the prevalence of overweight was lower in the Filipinos in Palau than the Paluans. In Bangladesh, both underweight and overweight were prevalent among the urban poor men but overweight was highly prevalent among the women. The prevalence of diabetes based on HbA1c values was much higher than the WHO estimated prevalence based on the values of fasting blood glucose. The qualitative study showed that the poor community people perceived poverty was the main cause of NCD and their daily diets might be unhealthy. They were willing to improve their health and women groups walked early in the morning for their health.
