The emphasis is placed on the pathogenetic aspects, and the relevance and translational potential of experimental studies. The book also presents the latest trends having to with more accessible and personalized health care for chronically ill aged persons, stressing the importance of the mental and emotional sphere in upholding the feeling of life satisfaction. The entwinement of pathophysiological processes raises the issue of the development of individualized and targeted therapeutic management strategies.
