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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
