How the effects of aging and stresses of life are integrated in mortality rates: insights for genetic studies of human health and longevity.
Increasing proportions of elderly individuals in developed countries combined with substantial increases in related medical expenditures make the improvement of the health of the elderly a high priority today. If the process ...
Dynamics of biomarkers in relation to aging and mortality.
(Mech Ageing Dev, 2016-06)
Contemporary longitudinal studies collect repeated measurements of biomarkers allowing one to analyze their dynamics in relation to mortality, morbidity, or other health-related outcomes. Rich and diverse data collected ...
Puzzling role of genetic risk factors in human longevity: "risk alleles" as pro-longevity variants.
Complex diseases are major contributors to human mortality in old age. Paradoxically, many genetic variants that have been associated with increased risks of such diseases are found in genomes of long-lived people, and do ...
