Handbook of the biology of aging by Edward J Masoro( Book )

24 editions published between 1977 and 1995 in English and held by 1,448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A handbook for biologists and other scientists involved with aging research, as well as gerontologists and practitioners dealing with an aging population. Provides a comprehensive overview of the concepts and theories of aging, covering systemic factors, cellular processes, and models of retarded aging
Aging : a natural history by Robert E Ricklefs( Book )

14 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors ask a variety of compelling questions: How can processes that lead to death be such an integral part of life itself? Why do some species tend to die at an early age when close relatives may live much longer? Why do many species age, when others seem not to? And, perhaps most importantly, why is aging, which is so detrimental to the individual, maintained by natural selection? Finally, the authors consider the prospects for prolonging human life and improving the quality of life at older ages. Concluding that aging is induced both by environmental factors and by the biochemical processes normally present in all cells, they show aging to be an inevitable yet alterable part of life - a natural process that may limit activity but is not necessarily debilitating

The biology of human longevity : inflammation, nutrition, and aging in the evolution of life spans by Caleb Finch( Book )

28 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Biology of Human Longevity: Inflammation, Nutrition, and Aging in the Evolution of Lifespans synthesizes several decades of top research, and expands a number of existing major theories, including the Barker theory of fetal origins of adult disease to consider the role of inflammation and Harmon's free radical theory of aging to include inflammatory damage. Future increases in lifespan are challenged by the obesity epidemic and spreading global infections that may reverse the gains made in lowering inflammatory exposure."--Jacket
Chance, development, and aging by Caleb Finch( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Chance, Development, and Aging, two leading biological gerontologists review and evaluate all of the available data to elucidate the respective roles played by genes, on the one hand, and chance developmental events, on the other, in determining the course of aging in individuals. The book draws on the extensive research in developmental biology on random variations in cell fate and function, while putting this research in a new context. The discussion sheds light on a range of questions, from understanding menopause to explaining why identical twins are not truly identical. The book will be invaluable for gerontologists, geneticists, developmental and reproductive biologists, physiologists, and a broad range of physicians and investigators in experimental medicine."--Jacket
Parkinson's disease--II : aging and neuroendocrine relationships by Caleb Finch( Book )

10 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These Proceedings emanate from the Second Tarbox Parkinson's Disease Symposium held February 2-4, 1978, at the SouthPark Inn in Lubbock, Texas. The Symposium was sponsored by the Tarbox Parkinson's Disease Institute and the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics of the Texas Tech University School of Medicine at Lubbock. The First Symposium took place in October, 1976. The Second Tarbox Parkinson's Disease Symposium boldly brought together investigators at the cutting edge of aging and neuroendocrine research and attempted to relate them to Parkinson's disease. Credit for the concept must go to the Program Chairman, Dr. David E. Potter. Once the plan was conceived the organizers relied heavily on the advice of Dr. Caleb E. Finch, whose counsel in developing the program was invaluable. The final verdict on the success of this daring venture must await the outcome of the publication of this Volume. Nevertheless, those in attendance could not fail but note the enthusiasm and excitement of the participants as their findings from the diverse disciplines of the neurological, aging, and endocrine sciences converged. This in itself is testimony that the Symposium accomplished some degree of success. The Tarbox Parkinson's Disease Institute was established in 1973 with funds appropriated by the State of Texas and is dedicated to research, patient care, and education in Parkinson's disease and related neurological disorders. The Institute is named after Mr. Elmer L. Tarbox, who served the Lubbock area as a Representative in the Texas Legislature, and is himself a victim of Parkinson's disease

Brain and longevity( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this third volume on longevity Fondation Ipsen has again collected the most recent results in research on genes and diet in the evolution of human longevity, educational level and longevity, cognitive impairment and survival at older age and other contributions. The preponderance of relatively short - compared to long-lived organisms suggests that morphogenesis is easier to accomplish than is maintenace of soma, whereas the broad range of longevities of organisms demonstrates that maintaining soma for extended periods of time is possible. The underlying assumption of "disposable soma" theory of aging is that the expense of maintaining somatic cells depends on their contribution to the welfare of the germ cells

Genetics and evolution of aging by Michael R Rose( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of aging has recently been transformed by the application of tools and ideas from genetics and evolution. This development began in 1980, and has since been gathering momentum. The present volume collects most of the principles contributing to this new direction in aging research. Additionally the book incorporates elements from both molecular genetics and evolutionary genetics, uniting two divergent strategies in the study of aging. Some of the book's articles are more molecular, and some are more evolutionary in their orientation, some contributions combine both approaches in a way that has rarely been seen. The book will thus be of broad interest through all `levels' of biology, from molecular biology to evolutionary biology. The phylogenetic diversity covered by the articles is also fairly great: from yeast to plants, nematodes to Drosophila, and rodents to man. Nonetheless, there is a unity to the treatment, with questions like mutation-accumulation, number of loci, and the possibility of postponing aging arising repeatedly throughout the discussions of particular taxonomic groups. There are few better starting places for graduate students interested in biological aging research than this volume. It is also a convenient collection for research workers in the area, who may need to track down an important idea or result. Finally, the book as a whole provides a bracing overview of biological aging
