Chronic sleep deprivation and its effect in the length of human telomeres: a review

Peer-Reviewed Scientific Journal:
Journal of Cell and Tissue Research

Size of study:
A review of 5 previously published studies

This review of previously published literature summarizes the close link between chronic sleep deprivation and telomere attrition. The reviewers postulate that shorter telomere length as an apparent consequence of chronic sleep deprivation warrants further exploration to justify the cause and effect hypothesis of these two variables.
