Written by field experts, Neuroimmunology in Clinical Practice fills a void in traditional neuroimmunology literature, which tends to cover the discipline’s scientific aspects with little emphasis on clinical applications. This unique book is essential reading in clinical neuroimmunology.

  • Written by field experts this book provides a comprehensive description of immune mediated neurological disorders complemented with the most pertinent and up to date scientific data
  • Covers inflammatory demyelination in the central nervous system, autoimmune diseases of the peripheral nervous system and the muscle, and disorders of the central and peripheral nervous systems
  • Fills a gap in existing neuroimmunology literature by focusing on clinical applications
Dr Bernadette Kalman, Director of Research and Associate Professor of Neurology, Syracuse VAMC, SUNY Upstate Medical University, and Dr Thomas H. Brannagan III, Associate Professor, Weill Medical College of Cornell University, have assembled a team of leading neuroimmunology researchers and practitioners worldwide.
