A single gene appears to be in charge. When the scientists bred mice that lacked that gene, the rodents developed extra teeth next to their first molars -- backups like sharks grow -- University of Rochester scientists reported Thursday in the journal Science.

The physical examination, which identifies illnesses and disabilities, is almost useless for predicting how well the elderly can function in daily life, said Dr. Mary Tinetti of the University of Rochester Medical Center. Falls, for example, a serious hazard to the elderly, are usually caused by interaction of many factors, from poor vision to depression, she said. She has developed and is currently evaluating a fast, simple, "balance and gait" test to identify those at risk of falling.
