Sarcopenia: Molecular Mechanism and Treatment Strategies provides answers and guidance on a disease that has serious health consequences in terms of fractures, frailty, disability and diminished quality of life. Written by experts around the world, this book is for all those that care for aging populations. As the global population ages, sarcopenia remains a therapeutic challenge and major public health concern. Difficulties in defining sarcopenia as a clinical phenotype remain and have hindered treatment.
- Covers physical, dietary and pharmacological strategies to maintain adequate muscle mass to ensure healthy aging
- Provides a complete and up-to-date reference on molecular mechanisms of sarcopenia
- Presents a clear definition of sarcopenia, along with the latest research in one volume
Endocrinologists, general internists, geriatricians, rheumatologists, dieticians, physicians with interest on musculoskeletal diseases and ageing, biomedical scientists. Graduate students (biomedical and clinical sciences), nurses and allied health professionals involved in aged care, medical directors (practitioners at nursing homes)

Professor Kunihiro Sakuma is a Physiologist working in the field of skeletal muscle at the Tokyo Institute of Technology in Japan. He began his scientific career in the Department of Physiology, Aichi Human Science Center, focusing on the molecular mechanism of congenital muscular dystrophy and normal muscle regeneration. His interest later turned to the molecular mechanism and the attenuating strategy of sarcopenia (age-related muscle atrophy). Preventing sarcopenia is critical for maintaining a high quality of life in the aged population.
