Introduction

Researchers have tried various effective treatments that prevent the progressive neurodegeneration of neurons within the brain. Parkinson’s disease (PD), Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and Multiple sclerosis (MS) are some of the most common neurodegenerative diseases (NDDs).Recent Advances in the Treatment of Neurodegenerative Disorders provides interesting updates on treatments of these neurological disorders. Ten chapters have been contributed by experts in pharmacology and give a unique perspective to reader on special topics in this area, including the treatment of neurodegenerative treatment of neurodegenerative disease through ayurveda and phytochemicals, the therapeutic role of vitamins in Parkinson’s disease, mushrooms in NDD treatment, MS treatment, ALS treatment and the use of nanoparticles and nano formulations in NDD treatment. This is an informative reference for pharmacologists, medicinal chemists and healthcare professionals (general practitioners and neurologists) seeking updates in the treatment of some common neurodegenerative disorders.

Foreword

A limited boom in neurodegenerative diseases (NDDs) and their treatments attract scientists all around the world. However, the conventional medications of NDDS are not sufficient to provide a better cure for patients. Surgical alternatives also have minimal efficacy with different kinds of side effects. Likewise, advancement in alternative treatment for different NDDs is essential nowadays. Chemically mediated therapy also have a minimal impact, which is associated with significant side-effects. The blood-brain barrier is the biggest culprit to minimize the response of different drugs. Nanoparticles and nanoformulation-based treatment can overcome the BBB problem and improve the efficacy of treatments. Therefore, eating habit also has a significant impact on the management of NDDs. The herbs and plant extracts serve as a better alternative with minimal side-effects. However, edible mushrooms can treat various kinds of NDDs, like Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Alzheimer’s (AD).The gut biome modulates the therapeutic efficacy in most common NDDs like PD and AD. Polyphenols also show the maximum impact on the treatment of NDDs. Moreover, animal models play a vital role in the standardization of drugs for the treatment of NDDs. Different yoga postures and techniques have a beneficial impact on the management of different neuronal diseases. As mentioned earlier, these options are the most advanced alternatives for treating diverse kinds of brain disorders. In this book, the editor has included all the above-mentioned recent advancements for the medication of neurological disorders. This book attracts the interest of researchers and scientists to explore the current treatment option in their researches. It draws both basic and clinical kinds of research to utilize a different alternative option that will be very efficient in treating NDDs. The literature in this book will be significantly crucial for the academicians, molecular biologists, graduates, and undergraduate students engaged in basic and clinical research. The mentioned distinct tools and techniques in this book can unravel the problem of different NDDs. However, we believed that the information that will be gainedby reading the chapters includedin this book, edited by Dr. Sachchida Nand Rai. The later exchange on every topic serves as an essential and valuable tool to understand the different and more advanced alternative treatment options for different Neurological disorders.
