A cutting-edge review of the fundamental biological principles underlying the more common inflammatory disorders of the nervous system. The authors provide extensive updates on the latest findings concerning the mechanisms of inflammation and introduce such new concepts and methodologies as "endothelial and leukocyte microparticles" and "gene microarray technology" to help explain important links between the central nervous system (CNS) and general inflammatory processes. Among the diseases examined from an inflammatory perspective are multiple sclerosis, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, optic neuritis, transverse myelitis, CNS vasculitis, neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosis, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease. The role of the immune system in neuroinflammation is also explored in such disorders as neurosarcoidois, HIV-Associated dementia, and HTLV-associated neurological disorders.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The objective of this book is to provide the readers with a highly detailed review of the basic principles of neuroinflammation and extensive updates of the latest findings on common neuroinflammatory disorders. . The treatment principles of the different inflammatory disorders are very well covered and up-to-date. This book can be of interest for the institutional library in order for doctors to look up specific details and treatment principles, and to enter deeply into neuroimmunological basics." (Orvar Eeg-Olofsson, European Journal of Paediatric Neurology, Vol. 11, June, 2007)
