How to define human biological age

submitted by: COMED2010
Towards establishing biomarkers of human ageing “European Study to Establish Biomarkers of Human Ageing (MARK-AGE)” brings together 26 groups located in 14 European countries. The scientific background is the following: The rate of ageing in humans is not uniform, 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”. Within the...
