About this book

Immunosenescence is a unique, multi-disciplinary approach to the understanding of immune aging. It addresses the topic from the biological, as well as the psychological, social and behavioral perspectives. It is, thus, a valuable and timely addition to the literature in this area. Contributors include experts in the field, reviewing the state of the art in research.


From the reviews:

“This book explores the aging process of the immune system. … researchers in immunology and clinicians working with the elderly will benefit the most from this book. … This book addresses an important subject, in light of the growing number of elderly individuals in the population and covers a wide variety of topics, integrating biological and psychosocial factors.” (Gary B. Kaniuk, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2013)
