Angiotensin I - Converting Enzyme (ACE) gene polymorphism in relation to physical performance, cognition and survival: A follow-up study of elderly Danish Twins

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Studies of younger individuals have suggested an association between ACE genotype and physical and cognitive performance. Using a longitudinal study of elderly twins we studied the association between ACE genotype and physical and cognitive functioning and survival in old age.
