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.

Preface

The central nervous system (CNS) is the most vital component of our body, regulating various kinds of daily activities that are essential for our life processes. Keeping the balance between body and brain and maintaining the homeostasis of CNS is one of the main focuses of researchers nowadays.

Neurodegenerative diseases (NDDs) arise as a result of progressive degeneration of neurons in the CNS. Researchers have tried various effective treatments that prevent this progressive neurodegeneration of neurons within the CNS. Parkinson’s disease (PD), Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Multiple sclerosis (MS), etc., are some of the most common NDDs. Conventional treatment has limited success in the treatment of NDDs. The primary aim of this book is to provide an audience worldwide with recent advancements in treating various kinds of Neurological disorders.

This book comprises a new efficient treatment strategy for different kinds of neuronal disorders. It will help in the advancement of alternative treatment scheme for NDDs. In addition, recent nanoparticle-mediated protection for NDDs has also been included in this book. Therefore, the section contains various knowledge that focused on the role of enzyme and polyphenols for PD and AD, respectively.

This book also demonstrates some yoga techniques in the management of NDDs. Moreover, this book explores the natural compound and nanoformulation-based treatment of different NDDs, which are the most advanced treatment options. This book also covers the MS medication strategy by demonstrating the vital effect on animal models. Gut-brain axis based therapy of AD and PD is a hottopic, which is also included in the book chapters. However, Ayurvedic medicine for different NDDs has also been mentioned. Mushrooms mediated treatment of PD and AD is also included for better exploratory knowledge. Thus, we can say that this edition shows distinct advanced treatment alternatives that inevitably attract the interest of scientists and researchers working on NDDs. They can utilize various alternative treatment options for treating neurological disorders. Besides, researchers and scientists all across the world can also use different approaches to the treatment of brain-related ailments disorders. Furthermore, they can also learn separate tools and techniques that have been mentioned in the chapters of the book for NDDs analysis. Thus, it will be a complete package for researchers and scientists working in various fields of NDDs.
