Review quote

"This text provides an overview of important topics in biomedical gerontology. Geriatricians, medical researchers and practitioners, psychologists, sociologists, and graduate students will find this volume useful."--BIOSIS "Many of the chapters provide outstanding coverage of their subject areas. For example, the chapter by Campis and her associates is the best that I have encountered in regard to the use of the cell culture system as a model for study of organismic senescence; these authors thoughtfully evaluate the evidence for and against the value of this model and leave the reader with a clear picture of its current status. Thus, properly used, this Handbook can be a valuable resource for both investigators and students of biological gerontology."--Edward J. Masoro, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Department of Physiology, University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, in GERONTOLOGIST
