The rate of leukocyte telomere shortening predicts mortality from cardiovascular disease in elderly men: a novel demonstration


Figure 2. Those with telomere shortening over a 2.5 year period (dashed line) had 3.0 times greater likelihood ofmortality over the 12 years since the baseline blood draw, compared to those without telomere shortening (solid line).
