Stress-response hormesis and aging: "that which does not kill us makes us stronger"
Language:

Short Title: 
Stress-response hormesis and aging
Abstract: 

Hormesis refers to the beneficial effects of a treatment that at a higher intensity is harmful. In one form of hormesis, sublethal exposure to stressors induces a response that results in stress resistance. The principle of stress-response hormesis is increasingly finding application in studies of aging, where hormetic increases in life span have been seen in several animal models.
