Comparative validation of an epigenetic mortality risk score with three aging biomarkers for predicting mortality risks among older adult males.

A 'mortality risk score' (MS) based on ten prominent mortality-related cytosine-phosphate-guanine (CpG) sites was previously associated with all-cause mortality, but has not been verified externally. We aimed to validate the association of MS with mortality and to compare MS with three aging biomarkers: telomere length (TL), DNA methylation age (DNAmAge) and phenotypic age (DNAmPhenoAge) to explore whether MS can serve as a reliable measure of biological aging and mortality.


Associations of genetics, behaviors, and life course circumstances with a novel aging and healthspan measure: Evidence from the Health and Retirement Study.

An individual's rate of aging directly influences his/her susceptibility to morbidity and mortality. Thus, quantifying aging and disentangling how various factors coalesce to produce between-person differences in the rate of aging, have important implications for potential interventions. We recently developed and validated a novel multi-system-based aging measure, Phenotypic Age (PhenoAge), which has been shown to capture mortality and morbidity risk in the full US population and diverse subpopulations. The...

The Hardest Part.

Aging has a significant impact not only on every single individual but on society as a whole. Today, people throughout the world exhibit an extended lifespan. Therefore, it becomes increasingly important to develop novel concepts that encourage a modern understanding of the aging process. The concept of healthy aging shifts the perception of aging as a burden towards aging as an opportunity for an extended healthy phase in later life. Morbidity and mortality in the elderly population are greatly defined by ...


Longitudinal Analysis of Mortality for Older Adults Receiving or Waiting for Aging Network Services.

For older adults screened by an Area Agency on Aging (AAA) in the National Aging Network, we aimed to examine the 12-month mortality rate for wait-listed callers compared with those who received services within 12 months, and to assess whether the mortality rate differed according to how quickly they received services.

Revamping the Evolutionary Theories of Aging.

Radical lifespan disparities exist in the animal kingdom. While the ocean quahog can survive for half a millennium, the mayfly survives for less than 48 hours. The evolutionary theories of aging seek to explain why such stark longevity differences exist and why a deleterious process like aging evolved. The classical mutation accumulation, antagonistic pleiotropy, and disposable soma theories predict that increased extrinsic mortality should select for the evolution of shorter lifespans and vice versa. Mos...

Does symptomatic knee osteoarthritis increase the risk of all-cause mortality? Data from four international population-based longitudinal surveys of aging.

This study aimed at examining the association between symptomatic knee osteoarthritis and all-cause mortality based on four population-based longitudinal surveys.

Telomere length, vitamin B12 and mortality in persons undergoing coronary angiography: the Ludwigshafen risk and cardiovascular health study.

Vitamin B12 (B12) deficiency and excess are associated with increased risk of age-related-diseases and mortality. It has been suggested that high- and low-B12 concentrations link to increased mortality through accelerated genomic aging and inflammation. Evidence to support this is limited.

Aging Biomarkers and Novel Targets for Anti-Aging Interventions.

The aging population worldwide is expanding at an increasing rate. By 2050, approximately a quarter of the world population will consist of the elderly. To slow down the aging process, exploration of aging biomarkers and the search for novel antiaging targets have attracted much interest. Nonetheless, because aging research is costly and time-consuming and the aging process is complicated, aging research is considered one of the most difficult biological fields. Here, providing a broader definition of aging...

Phylodynamic theory of persistence, extinction and speciation of rapidly adapting pathogens.

Rapidly evolving pathogens like influenza viruses can persist by changing their antigenic properties fast enough to evade the adaptive immunity, yet they rarely split into diverging lineages. By mapping the multi-strain Susceptible-Infected-Recovered model onto the traveling wave model of adapting populations, we demonstrate that persistence of a rapidly evolving, Red-Queen-like state of the pathogen population requires long-ranged cross-immunity and sufficiently large population sizes. This state is unstab...

Engaging Aging Individuals in the Design of Technologies and Services to Support Health and Well-Being: Constructivist Grounded Theory Study.

Changes noted within the aging population are physical, cognitive, as well as emotional. Social isolation and loneliness are also serious problems that the aging population may encounter. As technology and apps become more accessible, many basic services, such as those offered by social services, well-being organizations, and health care institutions, have invested in the development of supportive devices, services, and Web-based interactions. Despite the perceived benefits that these devices and services o...

Latest advances in aging research and drug discovery.

An increasing aging population poses a significant challenge to societies worldwide. A better understanding of the molecular, cellular, organ, tissue, physiological, psychological, and even sociological changes that occur with aging is needed in order to treat age-associated diseases. The field of aging research is rapidly expanding with multiple advances transpiring in many previously disconnected areas. Several major pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and consumer companies made aging research a priority and ...

Deep Aging Clocks: The Emergence of AI-Based Biomarkers of Aging and Longevity.

First published in 2016, predictors of chronological and biological age developed using deep learning (DL) are rapidly gaining popularity in the aging research community. These deep aging clocks can be used in a broad range of applications in the pharmaceutical industry, spanning target identification, drug discovery, data economics, and synthetic patient data generation. We provide here a brief overview of recent advances in this important subset, or perhaps superset, of aging clocks that have been develop...

Aging and Lung Disease.

People worldwide are living longer, and it is estimated that by 2050, the proportion of the world's population over 60 years of age will nearly double. Natural lung aging is associated with molecular and physiological changes that cause alterations in lung function, diminished pulmonary remodeling and regenerative capacity, and increased susceptibility to acute and chronic lung diseases. As the aging population rapidly grows, it is essential to examine how alterations in cellular function and cell-to-cell i...

Fertility History and Cognitive Function in Late-Life: The Case of Mexico.

Mexico is aging rapidly, which makes identification of life-course factors influencing cognition a public health priority. We evaluate how the number of children one has relates to cognition in Mexico, a rapidly aging country that experienced fertility declines across recent cohorts of older people.

Metabolic Biomarkers in Aging and Anti-Aging Research.

Although human life expectancy has increased significantly over the last two centuries, this has not been paralleled by a similar rise in healthy life expectancy. Thus, an important goal of anti-aging research has been to reduce the impact of age-associated diseases as a way of extending the human healthspan. This review will explore some of the potential avenues which have emerged from this research as the most promising strategies and drug targets for therapeutic interventions to promote healthy aging.

Cognitive Profiles of Aging in Multiple Sclerosis.

Increasingly favorable mortality prognosis in multiple sclerosis (MS) raises questions regarding MS-specific cognitive aging and the presence of comorbidities such as Alzheimer's disease (AD).

Physical functioning and mortality in very old patients on dialysis.

Old patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) represent an increasing segment of the ESKD population maintained on chronic dialysis treatment. Quality of life (QoL) is notoriously poor in ESKD but relationship between QoL and mortality has not been investigated in the old dialysis population. The objective of this study is to investigate the relationship between QoL and mortality in the old dialysis population.

Low Muscularity as Assessed by Abdominal Computed Tomography on Intensive Care Unit Admission Is Associated With Mortality in a Critically Ill Asian Population.

Low muscularity (LM) is associated with high mortality in the Caucasian critically ill population. Muscularity can be accurately measured by the skeletal muscle index (SMI; cm /m ) generated by computed tomography (CT). This study aimed to establish the overall and sex-specific cutoff values that predict hospital mortality in an Asian critically ill population.

Ultrasound screening of ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer has a high mortality rate. The most common serous type spreads rapidly throughout the peritoneal cavity when 5-year survival is 10%. If diagnosed in earlier stages where the cancer is still confined to the ovary, this survival rate is about 90%. This is the reason to be interested in screening at earlier stages in the average-risk general population. Thus, annual transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) alone or as a multimodal screening test following serum carbohydrate antigen 125 (CA125) has been inv...

Cell aging preserves cellular immortality in the presence of lethal levels of damage.

Cellular aging, a progressive functional decline driven by damage accumulation, often culminates in the mortality of a cell lineage. Certain lineages, however, are able to sustain long-lasting immortality, as prominently exemplified by stem cells. Here, we show that Escherichia coli cell lineages exhibit comparable patterns of mortality and immortality. Through single-cell microscopy and microfluidic techniques, we find that these patterns are explained by the dynamics of damage accumulation and asymmetric ...

Effect of a multidisciplinary end-of-life educational intervention on health and social care professionals: A cluster randomized controlled trial.

The aging of populations is rapidly accelerating worldwide. Especially, Japan has maintained the highest rate of population aging worldwide. As countermeasures, the Japanese government prioritized the promotion of local comprehensive care systems and collaboration in medical care and social (long-term) care. Development of a system to connect medical and social services in the community is necessary for the increasing older people, especially for the people in the stage of end of life.

Sodium Fluctuations and Mortality in a General Hospitalized Population.

Aim of our study was to describe the association between natremia (Na) fluctuation and hospital mortality in a general population admitted to a tertiary medical center.

Brain vascular changes in adults with congenital heart disease: A systematic review.

Less information is available on brain integrity in adults with congenital heart disease than on brain changes in newborns and children with heart defects. Nevertheless, the number of adults with congenital heart disease is increasing rapidly and it has been shown that adults with congenital heart disease develop dementia almost twice as frequently as adults in the general population. In the context of a rapidly growing congenital heart disease population, neuroradiological-oriented investigations of biomar...

clinical trials for anti-aging therapies.

Therapeutic strategies targeting the hallmarks of aging can be broadly grouped into four categories, namely systemic (blood) factors, metabolic manipulation (diet regimens and dietary restriction mimetics), suppression of cellular senescence (senolytics), and cellular reprogramming, which likely have common characteristics and mechanisms of action. In evaluating the potential synergism of combining such strategies, however, we should consider the possibility of constraining trade-off phenotypes such as impa...

Short-term dietary restriction in old mice rejuvenates the aging-induced structural imbalance of gut microbiota.

The world's aging population is growing rapidly. Incidences of multiple pathologies, such as abdominal obesity, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, and malignant neoplasms, increase sharply with age. Aged individuals possess a significantly shifted composition of gut microbiota, which is suggested to play important roles in aging associated pathologies. Whether the existing shifted structural composition of microbiota in aged populations can be reverted non-pharmacologically has no...
