Reviews

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)
