Evolutionary aspects for the neuroendocrine immune network and ageing (R.H. Straub).

II. Ageing of the immune system.S TRONG>

Immunosenescence (R. Solana, G. Pawelec). Zinc- binding proteins (metallothionein and α-2 macroglobulin) as potenti al biological markers of immunosenescence (E. Mocchegiani et al.). Neutrophil ageing and immunosenescence (S.K. Butcher et al. ). Apoptosis and ageing (A. Larbi et al.). MHC-unrestricted cyt otoxicity in ageing (M. Provinciali, A. Donnini, R.E. Francesca). Major histocompatibility complex polymorphisms and ageing (G. Candore et a l.).

III. Ageing of the endocrine system.

Neuroplascticity in the hu man hypothalamus during ageing (M.A. Hofman, D.F. Swaab). The role of gr owth hormone signalling in the control of ageing (A. Bartke et al. EM>). Ageing and the adrenal cortex (V. Lamounier-Zepter, S.R. Bornstein ). Hormonal changes in ageing men (E. Plas, S. Madersbacher, P. Berger).

Industry Reviews

"...is a welcome addition to biogerontological literature...the wealth of information provided with respect to the ageing brain, the immune system and the hormonal system is definately highly useful to venture into other areas of biogerentology." - BIOGERONTOLOGY (2005) "...offers a good overview of some of the studies carried out to help address these questions, focusing particularly on the neuro-endocrine-immune axis...Overall, this text offers a good overview of the aging of the immune, neural and endocrine systems, and enables the appreciation of how biological aging of one system influences the other." -Meharvan Singh, PhD, Department of Pharmacology and Neuroscience, University of North Texas Health Science Center, U.S.A. (2005)
