As possible markers of biological age, telomere length (TL) has been associated with age-related diseases such as myocardial infarction (MI) with conflicting findings. We sought to assess the relationship between TL and risk of future MI in 915 healthy participants (51.7% women) 65 years or older from a population-based prospective cohort (the HUNT 2 study, Norway). Mean TL was measured by quantitative PCR expressed as relative T (telomere repeat copy number) to S (single copy gene number) ratio...
ABSTRACTPurposeThe present study describes the distribution of cardiorespiratory fitness (V˙O2peak) in a large sample of healthy adolescents and the associations between V˙O2peak, self-reported physical activity, and a selection of conventional markers for future cardiovascular health.MethodsIn a su

Background: Telomeres are potential markers of mitotic cellular age and are associated with physical ageing process. Longterm endurance training and higher aerobic exercise capacity (VO2max) are associated with improved survival, and dynamic effects of exercise are evident with ageing. However, the association of telomere length with exercise training and VO2max has so far been inconsistent. Our aim was to assess whether muscle telomere length is associated with endurance exercise training and V...
