Description

In this thoroughly updated and revised edition of his much praised book, Paul L. Wood and a panel of leading researchers capture these new developments in a masterful synthesis of what is known today about the inflammatory mediators and cells involved in neurodegenerative diseases. This second edition contains extensive updates on the mediators produced by microglia and their role in neuroinflammatory-induced neuronal lysis. There is also increased coverage of the animal models used in the study of neuroinflammatory mechanisms, of the new imaging methods that allow the noninvasive evaluation of microglial activation in human neurodegernerative disorders, and of the role of neuroinflammation in amyloid-dependent neuronal lysis.show more

Review of the first edition: "...will reach a wide audience including basic and clinical neuroscientists...fills a significant gap in the literature...provides an excellent starting point, and offers insight into the rapid pace of discovery within a field which influences most aspects of nervous system function."-Nature Medicine "...fills a significant gap in the literature...provides an excellent starting point..." -Nature Medicine "...will be useful to a wide variety of researchers and clinicians, particularly [those] interested in neurodegenerative disorders ..." -Neurological Research "...provides a thorough overview of cells and mechanisms of brain inflammation, their role in disease and future therapeutic avenues to overcome it." -Microbiology Today "...a timely addition that will aid our understanding today." -Receptors & Signal Transductionshow more

Back cover copy

The field of neuroinflammation is evolving rapidly and now yielding many new potential therapeutics for clinical trials. In this thoroughly updated and revised edition of his much praised book, Neuroinflammation: Mechanisms and Management, Second Edition, Paul L. Wood and a panel of leading researchers capture all these new developments in a masterful synthesis of what is known today about the inflammatory mediators and the cells involved in neurodegenerative diseases. This second edition contains extensive updates on the mediators produced by microglia and their role in neuroinflammatory-induced neuronal lysis. There is also increased coverage of the animal models used in the study of neuroinflammatory mechanisms, of the new imaging methods that allow the noninvasive evaluation of microglial activation in human neurodegernerative disorders, and of the role of neuroinflammation in amyloid-dependent neuronal lysis. Up-to-date and insightful, Neuroinflammation: Mechanisms and Management, Second Edition summarizes all the recent discoveries now playing a key role in both developing molecular targets and designing a new generation of drugs for acute and chronic neurodegenerative disorders alike.show more
