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 ...
Trade-offs between cancer and other diseases: do they exist and influence longevity?
(Rejuvenation Res, 2010-08)
Relationships between aging, disease risks, and longevity are not yet well understood. For example, joint increases in cancer risk and total survival observed in many human populations and some experimental aging studies ...
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 ...
