Recognition of adaptive processes in biological systems as a discipline is still in its infancy. It is known that repeat exposure to low level stresses such as heat, cold, microgravity, hypoxia, exercise, etc. increases body-resistance to not only the particular stress but also to other conditions. Such a cross-protection can be utilized in a better patient care. This volume describes most current developments in the understanding of the molecular basis of adaptation as well as its application in biological systems including certain disease conditions in humans. The book is based on the presentations made by internationally known experts assembled in San Diego, USA for the 7th World Congress of the International Society for Adaptive Medicine and will be of great interest to experimental biologists as well as clinicians who deal with a wide variety of clinical conditions.
