Summary
"This volume presents the most current medical strategies for postponing the onset of chronic illnesses and other functional losses associated with aging. Expert authors point out that while many preventive measures are available today, they are not yet fully implemented and more research is still necessary. This volume highlights important areas for further research, such as Alzheimer's disease, immune dysfunction, and brain and neuronal aging. Geriatricians, geriatric researchers and academics, as well as other aging and health professionals will find this volume a welcome addition to their collections"--Back cover
