With the ever-increasing rise in life expectancy, there is an
urgent need to improve our understanding of the relationship
between ageing and the pathogenesis of age-related diseases in
order to identify more effective means of prevention, amelioration
and management of such diseases. In addition, there is a need to
reduce the social and economic impact of the ageing population.
Age-related morbidity and mortality vary dramatically among
individuals; this book focusses on individual differences in
susceptibility to age-related disorders.
It contains contributions from leading experts in the field on
topics such as:
age-related pathology in the brain, age-related processes in stem
cells, and age-related effects on the immune system and in bone,
muscle and cardiovascular tissue. For all those with an interest in
the biology of ageing, this is compulsory reading.
