📙 Ageing Vulnerability: Causes and Interventions: Novartis Foundation Symposium 235 by Novartis Foundation(eds.) — pdf free


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.Content:
