 Chronic inflammation is one of the common pathological bases underlying aging and aging-related diseases. Recently, it was reported that complement C1q, a crucial regulator of innate immunity, is deeply involved in the pathogenesis of aging-related sarcopenia, heart failure, and hypertension-induced aortic remodeling. In this review, the role and function of chronic inflammation in aging and aging-related diseases will be summarized.
