New Handbook of Models for Human Aging

I am pleased to announce publication of new scientific monograph written with our participation:

Hardbound, ISBN: 0-12-369391-8, 1075 pages,

This Handbook is designed as the only comprehensive work available that covers the diversity of aging models currently available. For each animal model, it presents key aspects of biology, nutrition, factors affecting life span, methods of age determination, use in research, and disadvantages/advantes of use. Chapters on comparative models take a broad sweep of age-related diseases, from Alzheimer's to joint disease, cataracts, cancer, and obesity. In addition, there is an historical overview and discussion of model availability, key methods, and ethical issues.

Researchers interested in the mechanisms of aging, gerontologists, health professionals, and allied health professionals and students

Drugs are just bad, you should try to use Herbal Alternatives as a temporary replacement to loose the dependance!
