Molecular basis of gradual adaptation of body systems in stressful conditions is a great mystery of biology. Such an adaptation not only increases tolerance of the body to that given stress but also to other challenges. An understanding of this cross protection needs to be exploited to improve patient care. The book includes 25 chapters describing molecular, subcellular and organ biology. Although for an easy reading the information has been grouped under the sub-headings: Adaptation to Cardiovascular Stresses, Adaptation to Neurohumoral Stresses, Adaptation to Other Stresses, the book represents a common continuum of adaptations. The therapeutic value of the understanding of the science of adaptation has also been described in several chapters. Examples of cross adaptations are also provided, where repeated exposure to one stimulus may have applications in the treatment and prophylaxis of different diseases. The present book will be of great interest to all biologists, physiologists, pharmacologiss and physicians interested in the application of the biology of adaptation in the improvement of health.
