About this book

This volume serves as a succinct and well-organized reference volume focused on inflammatory CNS disease to a wide audience. The text is comprised of four sections revolving around current areas of interest in the fields of neuroimmunology, virology, pharmacology and disease. Sections of this text focus on a specific category of diseases as well as the pharmacological, virological, and immunological effects of and on the disease.

Although many have covered this topic, few have provided a volume as concise and efficient. Each disease is broken down on a variety of scientific levels without getting into the history of the disease. This approach provides a succinct overview of a specific subject encompassing interrelated topics pertaining to neurology, immunology and disease. The information provided in Central Nervous System Diseases and Inflammation will be useful for researchers, clinicians, as well as a valuable resource for students interested in the fascinating arena of neuroinflammation.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The involvement of the immune system in central nervous system diseases is highlighted in this book, which details important advances in the understanding of certain aspects of neuroinflammation. … This is clearly appropriate for clinicians and researchers who are interested in neuroinflammation in the central nervous system. It also can be a valuable research guide for students who are interested in learning some basics on this topic. … It makes worthwhile contributions to this area." (Christine Maria Rohowsky-Kochan, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2008)
