Exceptional familial clustering for extreme longevity in humans [link]Website  abstract   bibtex   
Four families highly clustered for extreme longevity are described here, representing the first report of clustering for this phenotype. Families such as these may prove to be helpful in the further understanding of the genetic contribution to achieving exceptional longevity.
