Ischemic brain damage represents a major source of morbidity and mortality in westernized society and poses a significant financial burden on the health care system. To date, few effective therapies have been realized to treat stroke and promising avenues have not proven clinically useful. Recent evidence, however, suggests that channels, pumps, and ionic exchangers are involved in CNS ischemia and ischemic stroke, but the potential contribution of these channels for curing stroke is far less understood than for many other normal and pathological conditions. New Strategies in Stroke Intervention: Ionic Channels, Pumps, and Transporters analyzes the roles played by targets in stroke development and the potential action of drugs modulating these proteins. This book provides a groundbreaking review of these ionic channels, pumps, and transporters as regulators of neuronal ionic homeostasis, providing a better understanding of ischemic brain disorders and the new pharmacological avenues for a cure. It will be a useful tool for researchers working in this field, and any student interested in the physiological, pathophysiological, and pharmacological features of stroke damage.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"New Strategies in Stroke Intervention provides an in-depth summary of the present understanding of most of the major ion channels, pumps, and transporters, implicated in ischaemic neuronal death . . it will provide an important reference on the pathophysiology of stroke for those with an interest in stroke medicine. This book succinctly summarises a large amount of published work and will provide a useful grounding for readers, as new discoveries are made." (Neil Spratt, The Lancet Neurology, Vol. 9, July, 2010)"'New Strategies in Stroke Intervention' provides a succinct review of several novel concepts which might prove to be of ultimate clinical relevance in stroke management. . Each chapter provides an index typically listing 50-150 references. The information provided will be understandable to clinicians who might not have extensive genetic, molecular or biophysiological or pharmacological backgrounds. . will be of particular interest to Stroke clinicians and Fellows and to other Neuroscientists engaged in brain ischemia research."
