One of our aims is to understand the functional interactions between components of hypothalamic neuropeptide network and peripheral hormones that control food intake during aging. We believe that description of age-related characteristics of such control in a model animal system may be useful for potential therapy of appetite disturbances in the elederly.
Studies of replicative aging of lymphocytes may improve our understanding of age-dependent decline of immunological system functions that is often observed during physiological aging.
