About this book

Recent research has revealed the importance of immunological mechanisms and inflammation in delaying damage and/or promoting repair after an acute injury to the central nervous system.  This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the role of immunological mechanisms and therapies for treating acute neurological injuries such as cerebral ischemia, hemorrhage, and brain and spinal cord trauma. In several sections, the contributing authors provide a review of immunological mechanisms involved in neurological injury and of various translational and clinical research aimed at harnessing those mechanisms for better patient outcomes.​

Reviews

“This is an outstanding book on immune molecular and cellular treatment for brain injury and ischemia. … I recommend this book for all brain injury, stroke, and trauma investigators. This monograph is well written and profusely covered with pictures and postmortem slides reinforcing the concepts discussed. Students of Neurology and Neurosurgery will also find this a useful reference and stand alone book.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, October, 2015)
