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 ...
Evaluation of genotype-specific survival using joint analysis of genetic and non-genetic subsamples of longitudinal data.
Small sample size of genetic data is often a limiting factor for desirable accuracy of estimated genetic effects on age-specific risks and survival. Longitudinal non-genetic data containing information on survival or disease ...
How the quality of GWAS of human lifespan and health span can be improved.
(Front Genet, 2013)
Trade-offs between cancer and other diseases: do they exist and influence longevity?
Joint analysis of health histories, physiological state, and survival
(Mathematical Population Studies, 2011-12-01)
Data on individual health histories, age trajectories of physiological or biological variables, and mortality allow for the study of the joint evolution of health and physiological states and their effects on mortality. ...
How Genes Modulate Patterns of Aging-Related Changes on the Way to 100: Biodemographic Models and Methods in Genetic Analyses of Longitudinal Data.
(N Am Actuar J, 2016)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To clarify mechanisms of genetic regulation of human aging and longevity traits, a number of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of these traits have been performed. However, the results of these ...
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 ...
Genetics of aging, health, and survival: dynamic regulation of human longevity related traits.
(Front Genet, 2015)
BACKGROUND: The roles of genetic factors in human longevity would be better understood if one can use more efficient methods in genetic analyses and investigate pleiotropic effects of genetic variants on aging and health ...
Modeling longitudinal data on health aging and life span
(Physics of Life Reviews, 2012-06-01)
We address comments from the three discussants of our paper, paying particular attention to the properties of our model likely to be of interest in new applications to complex dynamic systems. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
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, ...
