Early Life Origins of Ageing and Longevity

Alexander Vaiserman (Redaktør)

Serie: Healthy Ageing and Longevity 9

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the field of developmental programming of ageing phenotypes. Although gerontological research has traditionally focused on later stages of the life cycle, growing evidence indicates that both the rate of ageing-associated functional declines, and the risks of later-life chronic pathological conditions, can be traced to origins early in life.

Om boka

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the field of developmental programming of ageing phenotypes. Although gerontological research has traditionally focused on later stages of the life cycle, growing evidence indicates that both the rate of ageing-associated functional declines, and the risks of later-life chronic pathological conditions, can be traced to origins early in life.

While other books in the field concentrate on the developmental origin of particular disorders, this volume offers a detailed guide to all important aspects of the role of early-life conditions in programming both chronic pathological conditions and the ageing process.

Interest in the study of ageing and longevity had its beginnings in research on the fetal origins of adult disease. This has evolved into a hypothesis on the Developmental Origins of Adult Health and Disease (DOHaD), which postulates that adverse environmental exposures during critical in-utero and early postnatal stages of development may permanently change physiological responses and cause functional impairments and disorders in adult life.

In this book, the contributing authors and leading experts from around the world, describe research on mechanisms underlying the developmental programming phenomenon, as well as interventional strategies aimed at restoring developmentally disrupted epigenetic patterns.



Early Life Origins of Ageing and Longevity benefits a wide audience of working scientists, clinicians, and advanced students, and will also interest scientifically curious general readers who wish to know more about current research in this rapidly evolving field.

Alexander Vaiserman was born in Kyiv, Ukraine, in 1957. His research interests comprise epigenetics, epidemiology and experimental gerontology. He earned his MSc Degree in cytology and developmental biology from Kyiv State University in 1984, and his DSc degrees in normal physiology from Instiute of Gerontology (Kyiv, Ukraine) in 1991 and 2004, respectively. Since 1978, he has had a permanent position in the Instiute of Gerontology (Kyiv, Ukraine). Since 2010 to present hi is the head of the Laboratory of Epigenetics in the Instiute of Gerontology (Kyiv, Ukraine). He is the member of the Editorial Boards of the journals Biogerontology, Frontiers in Genetics of Aging, Journal of Genomic Medicine and Pharmacogenomics, and Journal of Gerontology & Geriatric Research.
