Dear Colleagues,

Today the Journal of Theoretical Biology has published a special issue on 
aging, which contains an article suggesting a general theory of aging and 
longevity:

THE RELIABILITY THEORY OF AGING AND LONGEVITY.
Journal of Theoretical Biology, 2001, 213(4): 527-545.
Full text of this article is available at:
http://www.idealibrary.com/links/doi/10.1006/jtbi.2001.2430/pdf

This article attempts to take a fresh look at the problem of aging and to 
provide new perspectives in the search for life-extending interventions.

Perhaps this information may be interesting to you.

Sincerely,

Leonid Gavrilov
