Book description

Interactions between the immune and nervous systems are involved in many disease processes. Modulation of inflammation can provide an important opportunity to enhance regeneration within the central nervous system. This authoritative book defines the key cellular players in mounting an inflammatory response and highlights critical factors in the target organ that influence the nature of that response and its capacity either to damage or protect the brain. Several key clinical areas are highlighted – particularly autoimmune diseases of the nervous system including multiple sclerosis, as well as microbiological and traumatic challenges; the book therefore provides both a summary of the basic science background as well as practical, clinical-friendly guidelines to management. The book will be of interest to a wide range of physicians, including neurologists, neurosurgeons, neurorehabilitationists, infectious disease physicians, and clinical neuroscientists, as well as neuroscientists and immunologists.

Reviews

'There is no doubt that this book can serve as a basic textbook for graduate students and clinicians who seek to understand mechanisms of CNS inflammation and who wish to gain insight that will suggest future avenues of intervention, or explain events associated with existing therapies. Even readers with only a basic background in immunology can benefit greatly from this book.'
