Recovery and survival from aging-associated diseases.
(Exp Gerontol, 2013-08)
OBJECTIVES: Considering disease incidence to be a main contributor to healthy lifespan of the US elderly population may lead to erroneous conclusions when recovery/long-term remission factors are underestimated. Using two ...
The role of lipid-related genes, aging-related processes, and environment in healthspan.
(Aging Cell, 2013-04)
The inherent complexity of aging-related traits can temper progress in unraveling the genetic origins of healthspan. We focus on two generations in the Framingham Heart Study, the original (FHS) and offspring (FHSO) cohorts, ...
Biogenetic mechanisms predisposing to complex phenotypes in parents may function differently in their children.
(J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci, 2013-07)
This study focuses on the participants of the Long Life Family Study to elucidate whether biogenetic mechanisms underlying relationships among heritable complex phenotypes in parents function in the same way for the same ...
Time trends of incidence of age-associated diseases in the US elderly population: Medicare-based analysis.
(Age Ageing, 2013-07)
OBJECTIVES: time trends of age-adjusted incidence rates of 19 ageing-related diseases were evaluated for 1992-2005 period with the National Long Term Care Survey and the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End RESULTS Registry ...
Morbidity risks among older adults with pre-existing age-related diseases.
(Exp Gerontol, 2013-12)
Multi-morbidity is common among older adults; however, for many aging-related diseases there is no information for U.S. elderly population on how earlier-manifested disease affects the risk of another disease manifested ...
Trade-off in the effect of the APOE gene on the ages at onset of cardiocascular disease and cancer across ages, gender, and human generations.
(Rejuvenation Res, 2013-02)
Decades of studies of candidate genes show their complex role in aging-related traits. We focus on apolipoprotein E e2/3/4 polymorphism and ages at onset of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and cancer in the parental and offspring ...
