    • DNA methylation age is associated with mortality in a longitudinal Danish twin study. 

      Aviv, A; Christensen, Kaare; Christiansen, L; Lenart, A; McGue, M; Tan, Q; Vaupel, James Walton (Aging Cell, 2016-02)
      An epigenetic profile defining the DNA methylation age (DNAm age) of an individual has been suggested to be a biomarker of aging, and thus possibly providing a tool for assessment of health and mortality. In this study, ...
    • Leukocyte telomere length, breast cancer risk in the offspring: the relations with father's age at birth. 

      Arbeev, Konstantin; Aviv, A; Hunt, SC; Kimura, M; Yashin, Anatoli I (Mech Ageing Dev, 2011-04)
      Recent studies have reported that leukocyte telomere length (LTL) is longer in offspring of older fathers. Longer telomeres might increase cancer risk. We examined the relation of father's age at the birth of the offspring ...
    • Telomeres and the natural lifespan limit in humans. 

      Arbeev, Konstantin; Aviv, A; Barbieri, M; Benetos, A; Berenson, GS; Chen, W; Christensen, Kaare; ... (29 authors) (Aging (Albany NY), 2017-04)
      An ongoing debate in demography has focused on whether the human lifespan has a maximal natural limit. Taking a mechanistic perspective, and knowing that short telomeres are associated with diminished longevity, we examined ...
