In this book, the genetic and molecular basis of cardiovascular aging is examined in detail and a comprehensive assessment given of the bioenergetics changes occurring in human and animal models of cardiac aging. Both current diagnostic and future therapeutic modalities are presented, giving this book a dual-pronged approach. Cardiac aging, like aging in general, is a complex process involving numerous cellular and molecular changes. This book sheds new light on the phenomenon.

From the reviews:
"A comprehensive and authoritative book about cardiac senescence in the postgenomic period. ... The book is extensively referenced and thoroughly researched. The bibliographies provided after each chapter are exhaustive, and the end of the book includes an ample glossary section defining the plethora of acronyms used throughout." (M. Saleem Seyal, JAMA, Vol. 300 (9), 2008)"This is a comprehensive review of basic science research in the field of aging in the context of clinically relevant cardiovascular disorders. ... It is intended for both basic scientists and clinicians with ... some experience in biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, and genetics who are interested in cardiovascular aging. ... The best features of this book are its comprehensiveness, with its numerous sources of research, and its integration of basic science research into relevant clinical topics."
