In this issue of the Journal, Verhoeven and colleagues (1) further document the association between depressive and anxiety disorders and shorter leukocyte telomere length (LTL), an indicator of cellular aging. The researchers, reporting data from 2,936 participants in the Netherlands Study of Depression and Anxiety (NESDA) (2), observed that participants with remitted and with current depressive and anxiety disorders show shorter LTL than never-affected controls across baseline and 6-year… CONTINUE READING
