Abstract: 

This network diagram is presented to aid in conceptualizing the many processes of aging, and the interactions among them, including promising intervention points for therapy development. This diagram is maintained on the Web as a reference for researchers and students. Content is updated as new information comes to light. www.LegendaryPharma.com/chartbg.html The many observable signs of human senescence have been hypothesized by various researchers to result from several primary causes. Close inspection of the biochemical and physiological pathways associated with age-related changes and with the hypothesized causes reveals several parallel cascades of events that involve several important interactions and feedback loops. This network model includes both intracellular and extracellular processes. It ranges in scale from the molecular to the whole-body level.
