About this book

Culling together excerpts from a wide range of writings by Dr. Kewal K. Jain on biotechnology topics as they relate to disorders of the nervous system, Applications of Biotechnology in Neurology covers a variety of applications for those working in life sciences and the pharmaceutical sciences, particularly those developing diagnostics and therapeutics for the nervous system.  This detailed volume delves into areas such as neurobiotechnology, like neurogenomics and neuroproteomics, molecular diagnostics, various methods of improving systemic administration of drugs for targeted delivery to the nervous system, including the use of nanobiotechnology, biotechnology-based strategies and products for neuroprotection, as well as chapters on neurosurgery and personalized neurology.

 

Thorough, cutting-edge, and thoughtfully organized, Applications of Biotechnology in Neurology serves as an ideal guide, supplemented by 75 tables and 16 figures as well as numerous references from recent literature on this topic, which are appended to each chapter.

Reviews

“This is an excellent review of all areas of biotechnology and their applications to both medical and surgical neurological disorders/diseases. Molecular, gene, RNA, nonsense antisense, cell, and nanotechnology approaches are described in relationship to therapy. … This book functions as a primer and resource book for people starting out in this field. Researchers in neurology/neurosurgery will benefit from this sourcebook. Students and fellows in applied engineering will also find this useful.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, May, 2016)
