European Study to Establish Biomarkers of Human Ageing (MARK-AGE)

Start date: Apr 1, 2008, End date: Sep 30, 2013,

The rate of ageing in humans is not uniform, due to genetic heterogeneity and the influence of environmental factors. Age-related changes in body function or composition that could serve as a measure of “biological” age and predict the onset of age-related diseases and/or residual lifetime are termed “biomarkers of ageing”. Many candidate biomarkers have been proposed but in all cases their variab ...
