Dear Colleagues,

We are thinking about research project to study the effects of parental 
consanguinity (inbreeding) on human longevity.  We made a search of 
scientific literature in this field and found that this topic was not 
studied before.  May be we overlooked some of the previous studies on this 
topic?  If so, please advise.

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,

Leonid Gavrilov
