Abstract This article presents a conceptual discussion of some aspects involved in biomarkers in aging. A biomarker of aging is a biological parameter of an organism that either alone or in some multivariate composite will, in the absence of disease, better predict functional capability at some late age than will chronological age. The reasons for undertaking biomarker research, criteria for putative biomarkers, measurement and assessment of putative biomarkers, and the new initiative by the… Expand
Recent results: Biomarkers of aging
  • T. Johnson
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Experimental Gerontology
  • 2006
TLDR
The recent search for BoA is described and among others that have been put forward are IL6 and other markers of inflammation, allostatic load, and corticosterone, which have been described primarily in humans. Expand
Biomarkers of age and aging
  • G. Mcclearn
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Experimental Gerontology
  • 1997
TLDR
Reflections on validity, reliability, and generalizability of biomarkers are offered, arguing that the comprehension of aging will evolve iteratively from application of a diversity of biomarker variables. Expand
Biomarkers of Aging.
  • X. Bai
  • Medicine
  • Advances in experimental medicine and biology
  • 2018
TLDR
The study found the rate of aging was gradually increased before the age of 75 years old and afterward entered a stable plateau, and the new approach may be needed to investigate the mechanisms and evaluation of aging. Expand
Key questions in developing biomarkers of aging
  • D. Ingram
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Experimental Gerontology
  • 1988
TLDR
The need for biomarkers of aging as research tools in gerontology is argued, but the greater need for agreement on how to direct the conceptualization of this effort is also emphasized. Expand
MARK-AGE biomarkers of ageing
TLDR
The recently completed MARK-AGE study was a large-scale integrated project supported by the European Commission to identify a set of biomarkers of ageing which, as a combination of parameters with appropriate weighting, would measure biological age better than any marker in isolation. Expand
Biomarkers of Aging and Survival Kinetics
TLDR
Attention is focused on the changing distribution of biological parameters in a heterogeneous population and how the lack of consideration of this aspect can lead to misinterpretation of experimental findings, and to kinetics of putative aging biomarkers quantitatively and qualitatively different from what is expected on a purely biological basis. Expand
A method for identifying biomarkers of aging and constructing an index of biological age in humans.
  • E. Nakamura, K. Miyao
  • Medicine
  • The journals of gerontology. Series A, Biological sciences and medical sciences
  • 2007
TLDR
A logistic regression analysis suggested that aging rate was influenced by environmental factors, but peak functional capacity was almost independent of environmental factors. Expand
Nutritional Biomarkers of Aging
TLDR
An ideal nutritional biomarker of aging should be a biological parameter that can predict functional capability at some age better than chronological age including the consequences of nutritional status with regard to age. Expand
Strategy for identifying biomarkers of aging in long-lived species
TLDR
If a candidate biomarker is a valid measure of the rate of aging, then the rateOf age-related change in the biomarker should be proportional to differences in lifespan among related species, and for example, the rates of change in chimpanzees should be twice that of humans and in rhesus monkeys three times that of people. Expand
Assessment of a large panel of candidate biomarkers of ageing in the Newcastle 85+ study
TLDR
Assessment of a large panel of candidate biomarkers in a cohort of 85 years old by studying comparative associations with health status found several proposed biomarkers of ageing, notably inflammation and immune risk markers and telomere length, did not have a predictive value. Expand

TLDR
It seems likely that physiological markers of aging can be validated only through the appropriate use of maximum life span and the knowledge base that must be obtained to do so is discussed. Expand
Biomarkers of aging: Tissue markers. Future research needs, strategies, directions and priorities
TLDR
Tests of eight biological systems performed in mice suggest that different biological systems age at different rates, that rates are affected by genotype and that an anti-aging treatment beneficial in one genotype may be harmful in another. Expand

TLDR
The essay reviews current procedures used to estimate biological age (ie, to quantitate discrepancies between chronological and biological age), and the conceptual basis of these procedures, and a new definition of aging is proposed: a time-dependent, irreversible shift from environmental to intrinsic causation of disease.

TLDR
It is suggested that related changes in the duration of the pre-imaginal and the adult stages of the lifecycle of Drosophila may have evolved through adaptation to environmental stresses. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that those mechanisms responsible for the observed aged-related activity changes in alpha-GPDH are intrinsically regulated, independent of functional flight, genetic alteration of specific activity, and life-span. Expand
