about

Brain Neurosecretory Cytokines: Immune Response and Neuronal Survivalsummarizes the biological and chemical data of signal molecules of the brain neuroendocrine immune system, mainly proline-rich peptides, which play an important role in the regulation of immune response, neuronal survival, hematopoiesis, and adaptation. The author also describes the role of PRPs for the protection of neurons against neurodegenerative disturbances and diseases.
Brain Neurosecretory Cytokines: Immune Response and Neuronal Survivalwill be of great aid to the researchers and students in various areas of neurobiological profile (neurochemistry, neuroendocrinology, neurophysiology, and endocrinology).

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Brain Neurosecretory Cytokines is an excellent book, a veritable goldmine of information, at the cutting edge of neuroscience. It should stimulate ideas for future directions in neuroscience for years to come. This volume should be highly useful for medical libraries, neuroscientists, endocrinologists and graduate students in these fields." (Arthur S. Brecher, TRENDS in Endocrinology & Metabolism, Vol. 16 (6), 2005)
