Healthy aging – from bench to bedside

Aging is the key risk factor for most chronic diseases, in particular cardiovascular, metabolic, lung, neurodegenerative, and malignant diseases. This development interact with the age-associated loss and changes in the musculoskeletal sytem, body composition, and sensory systems and can lead to functional impairment, loss of autonomy, reduced quality of life, increased risk of death, and financial burden for patients, families, and health and social care systems.

This symposium focus on biological processes coming from cells, tissues and organs exposed to chronic stress and bring together basic researchers and clinicians. James L. Kirkland focus on the topic of chronic inflammation and senescence and how this interact and maybe contribute to the aging process. Edward G. Lakatta will give a talk about aging of arterias and how this changes will lead to organ dysfunction and disease. This basic views of mechanism contributing to and accelerating the aging process will be completed from a clinical viewpoint. Manfred Gogol will give an overview of lifestyle and environment factors which contribute to aging and manifestation of diseases. Frailty as a common syndrome in the elderly will be adressed by Jürgen Bauer and he will speak about possible interventions to reduce chronic stress and obtain and restore functional abilities.
