The quadratic hazard model for analyzing longitudinal data on aging, health, and the life span.
(Phys Life Rev, 2012-06)
A better understanding of processes and mechanisms linking human aging with changes in health status and survival requires methods capable of analyzing new data that take into account knowledge about these processes accumulated ...
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 ...
Leukocyte telomere length, breast cancer risk in the offspring: the relations with father's age at birth.
(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 ...
Joint influence of small-effect genetic variants on human longevity.
(Aging (Albany NY), 2010-09)
The results of genome-wide association studies of complex traits, such as life span or age at onset of chronic disease, suggest that such traits are typically affected by a large number of small-effect alleles. Individually ...
Interaction Between the FOXO1A-209 Genotype and Tea Drinking Is Significantly Associated with Reduced Mortality at Advanced Ages.
(Rejuvenation Res, 2016-06)
On the basis of the genotypic/phenotypic data from Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey (CLHLS) and Cox proportional hazard model, the present study demonstrates that interactions between carrying FOXO1A-209 genotypes ...
Protective role of the apolipoprotein E2 allele in age-related disease traits and survival: evidence from the Long Life Family Study.
The apolipoprotein E (apoE) is a classic example of a gene exhibiting pleiotropism. We examine potential pleiotropic associations of the apoE2 allele in three biodemographic cohorts of long-living individuals, offspring, ...
Explicating heterogeneity of complex traits has strong potential for improving GWAS efficiency.
(Sci Rep, 2016-10-14)
Common strategy of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) relying on large samples faces difficulties, which raise concerns that GWAS have exhausted their potential, particularly for complex traits. Here, we examine the ...
The second international conference "genetics of aging and longevity".
