Inflamm‐aging does not simply reflect increases in pro‐inflammatory markers
Abstract: Many biodemographic studies use biomarkers of inflammation to understand or predict chronic disease and aging. Inflamm-aging, i.e. chronic low-grade inflammation during aging, is commonly characterized by ...
Cross-population validation of statistical distance as a measure of physiological dysregulation during aging
Abstract: Measuring physiological dysregulation during aging could be a key tool both to understand underlying aging mechanisms and to predict clinical outcomes in patients. However, most existing indices are either circular ...
Statistical distance as a measure of physiological dysregulation is largely robust to variation in its biomarker composition
Physiological dysregulation may underlie aging and many chronic diseases, but is chal-lenging to quantify because of the complexity of the underlying systems. Recently, we de-scribed a measure of physiological dysregulation, ...
Detection of a novel, integrative aging process suggests complex physiological integration
Abstract: Many studies of aging examine biomarkers one at a time, but complex systems theory and network theory suggest that interpretations of individual markers may be context-dependent. Here, we attempted to detect ...
