The research is beginning to unlock the genetic code for longevity and identify the unique genotypes and phenotypes that protect against age-related diseases. Among the findings to date:
The combination of these factors is believed to play a key role in the ability of these "super agers" to avoid cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance and high blood pressure.
As the study continues, Einstein researchers are hoping to better understand how protective or harmful genes are activated, or "turned on" or "turned off." This could lead to drug therapies that regulate gene expression and help people live longer, healthier lives by mimicking the beneficial effects of longevity genes.
