Health and function of participants in the Long Life Family Study: A comparison with other cohorts.
(Aging (Albany NY), 2011-01)
Individuals from families recruited for the Long Life Family Study (LLFS) (n= 4559) were examined and compared to individuals from other cohorts to determine whether the recruitment targeting longevity resulted in a cohort ...
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 ...
Do gender, disability, and morbidity affect aging rate in the LLFS? Application of indices of cumulative deficits.
(Mech Ageing Dev, 2011-04)
We used an approach of cumulative deficits to evaluate the rate of aging in 4954 participants of the Long-Life Family Study (LLFS) recruited in the U.S. (Boston, New York, and Pittsburgh) and Denmark. We used an array of ...
Age, gender, and cancer but not neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases strongly modulate systemic effect of the Apolipoprotein E4 allele on lifespan.
(PLoS Genet, 2014-01)
Enduring interest in the Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) polymorphism is ensured by its evolutionary-driven uniqueness in humans and its prominent role in geriatrics and gerontology. We use large samples of longitudinally followed ...
