Inter-chromosomal level of genome organization and longevity-related phenotypes in humans.
(Age (Dordr), 2013-04)
Studies focusing on unraveling the genetic origin of health span in humans assume that polygenic, aging-related phenotypes are inherited through Mendelian mechanisms of inheritance of individual genes. We use the Framingham ...

(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 ...

(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 ...
