Metabolic Biomarkers in Aging and Anti-Aging Research

  • Paul C. Guest
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 1178)


Although human life expectancy has increased significantly over the last two centuries, this has not been paralleled by a similar rise in healthy life expectancy. Thus, an important goal of anti-aging research has been to reduce the impact of age-associated diseases as a way of extending the human healthspan. This review will explore some of the potential avenues which have emerged from this research as the most promising strategies and drug targets for therapeutic interventions to promote healthy aging.
