New key publication: large scale study in metabolic syndrome

Groningen, the Netherlands. June 13, 2017.

Recently a new scientific paper about the AGE Reader was published. It concerns an analysis of 78.671 non-diabetics subjects of the LifeLines study, a longitudinal cohort study with 167.000 participants. The aim of this study was to examine the association between the AGE Reader measurement and the presence of the metabolic syndrome as well as its individual components in a general population.

In this publication the authors conclude that the AGE Reader measurement was significantly associated with the presence of metabolic syndrome and some of its individual components. Please click here for the full-text version of this paper.

What is the added value of this validation paper for the AGE Reader? 

  • This study provides clinical validation in a very large study group of almost 80.000 subjects.
  • This study is performed in general population and not in a specific patient group.
  • This study provides new data for a broad application as a non-invasive screening tool to detect individuals at high risk for both cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
