“Phenotypic Ages” in NHANES Data#

This example loads blood exam data from NHANES 2010, calculates “Phenotypic Ages,” and performs survival analyses by phenotypic age.

Loading NHANES 2010 data#

from biolearn.load import load_nhanes
year = 2010
df = load_nhanes(year)
df["years_until_death"] = df["months_until_death"] / 12

Calculate “biological age” based on PhenotypicAge#

from biolearn.hematology import phenotypic_age

Show relation between biological age and chronological age#

import seaborn as sn
sn.scatterplot(data=df,x="age", y="phenotypic_age",s=2);
plot nhanes
<Axes: xlabel='age', ylabel='phenotypic_age'>

Plot survival curve for people with accelerated aging (older biological age) vs decelerated aging (younger biological age)#

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from lifelines import KaplanMeierFitter
df["biologically_older"] = df["phenotypic_age"] > df["age"]
ax = plt.subplot()
groups = df["biologically_older"]
ix = groups == 0
T = df.years_until_death
E = df.is_dead
kmf = KaplanMeierFitter()
kmf.fit(T[ix], E[ix], label="Biologically younger")
ax = kmf.plot_survival_function(ax=ax)
kmf.fit(T[~ix], E[~ix], label="Biologically older")
ax = kmf.plot_survival_function()
plot nhanes
