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 ...
Age trajectories of physiological indices in relation to healthy life course.
(Mech Ageing Dev, 2011-03)
We analysed relationship between the risk of onset of "unhealthy life" (defined as the onset of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, or diabetes) and longitudinal changes in body mass index, diastolic blood pressure, hematocrit, ...
Trade-off in the effects of the apolipoprotein E polymorphism on the ages at onset of CVD and cancer influences human lifespan.
(Aging Cell, 2011-06)
Progress in unraveling the genetic origins of healthy aging is tempered, in part, by a lack of replication of effects, which is often considered a signature of false-positive findings. We convincingly demonstrate that the ...
