Sarcopenia in Asia
Guest edited by Hidenori Arai, Masahiro Akishita, Liang-Kung Chen
Sarcopenia has a substantial impact on the health care of older adults. Therefore, additional research is required to further develop the diagnosis and treatment of sarcopenia. We hope that this special issue will inspire more Asian researchers to carry out sarcopenia research.

Book Spotlight


Edited by Alfonso J. Cruz-Jentoft and John E. Morley

More than two decades after the word was first used to define a distinct clinical condition, the definition of sarcopenia remains open for discussion, and its clinical relevance is still not fully understood. This book provides some answers. It is a valuable addition to the existing literature, providing a one-stop shop for state-of-the-art information on a topic of particular relevance for geriatricians and all those who care for the older population.

It will be of practical interest to geriatricians, clinicians and professionals working in nursing homes, nutrition and sport medicine. It is also a valuable and comprehensive reference work for professionals, post-graduates and researchers on age-related diseases, disability, nutrition and geriatric medicine.

Dementia comes in many forms that can be hard to differentiate. Arriving at an accurate diagnosis without subjecting an already wary patient to unnecessary tests requires clinical acumen. Identifying the correct dementia, and determining a probable prognosis, allows agreement on appropriate management and care with patients and their caregivers. Dr. Quinn provides a progressive approach to help you identify and manage the many forms of this complex and devastating disease. A team of expert neurologists and gerontologists provide the foundation knowledge you need to develop the clinical wisdom for effective dementia care.
