We have previously shown that mean telomere length (TL) of granulocytes reflects TL of myeloid bone marrow cells extremely well. Here we analysed the distribution of TL from peripheral blood granulocytes and lymphocytes in 61 female and 68 age-matched male healthy volunteers. We show that the age-dependent decline in TL occurs more rapid in peripheral blood lymphocytes (53 bp/year) than in granulocytes (39 bp/year; p
