Summary 880-01 "Sarcopenia--the loss of muscle mass and strength that occurs with advancing age--is a major health challenge, particularly in North America, Europe, and Japan, which have large aging populations. This compendium volume is a valuable addition to the existing literature, providing state-of-the-art information on the most effective prevention and treatment options. Included are research articles on: nutrition management and the prevention of sarcopenia; protein therapy for sarcopenia; the effect of exercise on sarcopenia; other therapeutic strategies, including antioxidants and steroids. Written by experts in the field from the US, Canada, Italy, the UK, Belgium, Chile, France, and Japan, this book will be of practical international interest to geriatricians, nutritionists, and dietitians, as well as clinicians and professionals working in nursing homes or sports medicine. It is also a valuable reference for postgraduates and researchers working on age-related diseases, disability, nutrition, and geriatric medicine."-- Provided by publisher
