  1. pmc High prevalence of autoantibodies among Danish centenarians
    K Andersen-Ranberg
    Department of Geriatrics, Odense University Hospital, Odense, Denmark
    Clin Exp Immunol 138:158-63. 2004
    ..Non-organ specific autoantibodies are evenly distributed irrespective of the level of disability or comorbidity, suggesting underlying, undiagnosed pathological processes which may be part of the processes involved in frailty...

    K Andersen-Ranberg
    Aging Research Centre, University of Southern Denmark, Odense University, Odense, Denmark
    J Gerontol B Psychol Sci Soc Sci 56:P152-9. 2001
    ..Dementia is common but not inevitable in centenarians. Cerebro- and cardiovascular diseases are equally common in demented and nondemented persons...

    K Andersen-Ranberg
    Aging Research Center, Epidemiology, Institute of Public Health, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark
    J Am Geriatr Soc 49:900-8. 2001
    ..CONCLUSION: Because they have a high prevalence of several common diseases and chronic conditions, Danish centenarians are not healthy. However, a minor proportion was identified as being cognitively intact and functioning well...

    K Andersen-Ranberg
    Ageing Research Centre and Epidemiology, Institute of Public Health, Odense, Denmark

    H R Andersen
    Department of Environmental Medicine, Odense University, Winsløwparken 17, DK 5000 Odense C, Denmark

  6. ncbi request reprint Modest implication of interleukin-6 promoter polymorphisms in longevity
    L Christiansen
    Department of Epidemiology, Institute of Public Health, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark
    Mech Ageing Dev 125:391-5. 2004
    ..We found a modest, but significant, increase in the frequency of interleukin-6 -174GG homozygotes with age suggesting that this genotype is advantageous for longevity...
  7. ncbi request reprint Increased plasma concentration of serum amyloid P component in centenarians with impaired cognitive performance
    M Nybo
    Department of Medical Microbiology, Odense University, Denmark
    Dement Geriatr Cogn Disord 9:126-9. 1998
    ..We conclude that the centenarians with impaired cognitive performance had significantly increased plasma concentrations of SAP, while the values for cognitive intact centenarians were within the normal range...

    M Sandmand
    The Department of Infectious Diseases, Rigshospitalet, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
    Clin Exp Immunol 127:107-14. 2002
    ..Furthermore, the percentage of T cells with cytokine expression was closely correlated to the in vivo expression of CD95 and CD45RO. In conclusion, we found some evidence for an age-related shift towards a Type 2 cytokine profile...

    O Varcasia
    Cell Biology Department, University of Calabria, Rende, Italy
    Ann Hum Genet 65:371-6. 2001
    ..The different findings in Denmark and Italy suggest that gene/longevity associations are population-specific, and heavily affected by the population-specific genetic and environmental history...

    Q Tan
    Max-Planck Institute for Demographic Research, Rostock, Germany
    Exp Gerontol 36:1303-15. 2001
    ..However, the presence of sex-dependent effects and the fact that major CVD-associated genes failed to impose detrimental influence on longevity lead us to concur that the aging process is highly complicated...
