The Danish Twin Registry: linking surveys, national registers, and biological information.
(Twin Res Hum Genet, 2013-02)
Over the last 60 years, the resources and the research in the Danish Twin Registry (DTR) have periodically been summarized. Here, we give a short overview of the DTR and a more comprehensive description of new developments ...
Low tobacco-related cancer incidence in offspring of long-lived siblings: a comparison with Danish national cancer registry data.
(Ann Epidemiol, 2015-08)
PURPOSE: Familial clustering of longevity is well documented and includes both genetic and other familial factors, but the specific underlying mechanisms are largely unknown. We examined whether low incidence of specific ...
Cancer and longevity--is there a trade-off? A study of cooccurrence in Danish twin pairs born 1900-1918.
(J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci, 2012-05)
BACKGROUND: Animal models and a few human studies have suggested a complex interaction between cancer risk and longevity indicating a trade-off where low cancer risk is associated with accelerating aging phenotypes and, ...
Design, recruitment, logistics, and data management of the GEHA (Genetics of Healthy Ageing) project.
(Exp Gerontol, 2011-11)
In 2004, the integrated European project GEHA (Genetics of Healthy Ageing) was initiated with the aim of identifying genes involved in healthy ageing and longevity. The first step in the project was the recruitment of more ...
Genome-wide linkage analysis for human longevity: Genetics of Healthy Aging Study.
(Aging Cell, 2013-04)
Clear evidence exists for heritability of human longevity, and much interest is focused on identifying genes associated with longer lives. To identify such longevity alleles, we performed the largest genome-wide linkage ...
