As each cell replicates, the telomere shortens and the potential life-routine of the cell diminishes slightly until there is absolutely no even more telomere and cell death ensues. Experts publishing in the journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology have found that telomere shortening predicts the chance of developing cardiovascular disease accurately, suffering a coronary attack and early death from all causes.The authors consist of Steven Goldman, M.D., Ph.D., professor and seat of Neurology; Webster Pilcher, M.D., seat and professor of Neurosurgery; Jeffrey Wyatt, D.V.M., professor and seat of Comparative Medicine; and research associate professors Takahiro Takano, Ph.D., Xiaoning Han, Ph.D., Wei He, Ph.D., and Fushun Wang, Ph.D. Various other authors include specialized associate Qiwu Xu; Jane Lin, Ph.D., of NY Medical University; and Jeffrey Ojemann, M.D., and Bruce Ransom, M.D., Ph.D., of the University of Washington, where Oberheim finished section of her doctoral thesis under Nedergaard’s supervision.
