[More people live to be very old and with a better functioning].
(Ugeskr Laeger, 2013-10-07)
Death rates for 80+-year-olds are now half of what they were after WWII. The chance of living past 90 years has gone up by roughly 30% per decade for people born in Denmark in 1895, 1905, and 1915 - and the later cohorts ...
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 ...
Perceived stress and biological risk: is the link stronger in Russians than in Taiwanese and Americans?
Allostatic load theory implies a relationship between exposure to psychological stress and multi-system physiological dysregulation. We used data from population-based samples of men and women in Russia (Moscow; n = 1800; ...
Evidence from case-control and longitudinal studies supports associations of genetic variation in APOE, CETP, and IL6 with human longevity.
(Age (Dordr), 2013-04)
In this study, we investigated 102 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) covering the common genetic variation in 16 genes recurrently regarded as candidates for human longevity: APOE; ACE; CETP; HFE; IL6; IL6R; MTHFR; ...
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 ...
