Synopsis

The Neuroendocrine Immune Network in Ageing by R.H. (University Medical Center, Department of Internal Medicine I, Laboratory of Neuroendocrinoimmunology, Regensburg, Straub

The book describes the mechanisms involved in the maintenance of neuroendocrine-immune interactions in ageing. The lack of this maintenance leads to the appearance of age-related diseases (cancer, infections, dementia) and subsequent disability. The capacity of some hormones or nutritional factors in restoring and remodelling the neuroendocrine-immune response during ageing is reported presenting possible new anti-ageing strategies in order to reach healthy ageing and longevity.
