Description - Endocrine Facets of Ageing by Novartis Foundation

Social and medical developments during the 20th century have led to a dramatic increase in life expectancy, and hence in populations in countries of the developed world in which up to half of adults are in the age range of 60-100. This has encouraged the study of organismic changes associated with healthy ageing, of which an early example is the erosion of homeostatic capabilities in multiple endocrine systems. This book reviews and discusses the advances in the understanding of the endocrine facets of ageing, drawing together findings from both basic and clinical research. The questions addressed include the following: what are the relative magnitudes and time courses of different endocrine adaptations in the ageing human and experimental animal? How do external factors influence the rates of progression of endocrine sequelae of ageing? What mechanisms underlie the disarray of endocrine axes in ageing? And what are the implications of therapeutic reconstitution with hormones in ageing? By bringing together an international and interdisciplinary group of experts, the book reviews work in this area and serves to identify promising new research directions.
