A blood test has been created to determine a person’s life span.
(Alles Europa News) – Experts recommend including in a routine blood test to detect infections and various inflammations.
Alles Europa News reports that German scientists have developed a new blood test to determine a person’s life span.
The new method is based on blood biomarkers, which are associated with various factors that directly affect the risk of human death.
Alles Europa News reports that Researchers studied blood samples of more than 44 thousand patients aged 18 to 109 years and identified 14 biomarkers associated with inflammation, blood glucose and the state of the immune system.
Blood samples were taken from a database of 12 studies.
The observation period ranged from two to 16 years. During this time, 5512 participants died.
Alles Europa News reports that Researchers searched for “metabolic” biomarkers in blood samples, which were higher in those who lived longer.
To evaluate their effectiveness, scientists rated the participants’ “risk of death” based on common factors such as cholesterol, bad habits, cancer, heart disease, and blood pressure.
After the results were compared with the detected biomarkers.
Alles Europa News reports that Scientists have found that it is possible to determine the likelihood that a person will die in the next few years, with a probability of 83%.
The accuracy of the forecast for the year is higher, noted experts.
Alles Europa news reports that according to various experts who speak with our reporters noted that our blood and personal ways of life hold the greatest key to longevity provided a sudden accident does not cut short life expectancy.
Alles Europa News reports that also on the other sides Amanda Heslegrave, a researcher at the British Institute for the Study of Dementia at University College London, said the technology works because “biomarkers provide important information about what happens to health.”
However, she noted that the analysis was limited only to the use of data from Europe and could not be applied to other ethnic groups without further research.
