This study was conducted to identify biomarkers of aging and to construct an index of biological age in humans. Healthy adult men (n = 86) who had received an annual health examination from 1992 through 1998 were studied. From 29 physiological variables, five variables (forced expiratory volume in 1 second, systolic blood pressure, hematocrit, albumin, blood urea nitrogen) were selected as candidate biomarkers of aging. Five candidate biomarkers expressed substantial covariance along one… CONTINUE READING
