Researchers have elucidated the disease risk underlying a biomarker predictive of shorter lifespan.
Researchers have been able to unravel the disease burden that underlies increased mortality risk for and all-cause mortality biomarker they discovered in 2014. They found, that low-level chronic inflammation is associated with increased risk for diseases of all major internal organs. They used data and samples from over 11000 Finnish volunteers in their research. The researchers were able to connect chronic inflammation and increased risk of multiple diseases in one study for the first time. The results of the study will help to understand the disease burden that is linked with low-level inflammation and possible will aid in the future people to live healthier and longer life.
