During the last 40 years, the study of the biological basis of aging has progressed tremendously, and it has now become an independent and respectable field of study and research.
This volume on "Aging of Organs and Systems", is an attempt to bring understanding to both the aging process and the disease processes of old age. Bringing together contributions from an international team of authors, it will be of interest to graduates and postgraduates in the fields of medicine and nursing, researchers of different aspects of biogerontology and those in the pharmaceutical, cosmeceutical, nutriceutical and health-care industry.
