Introduction

This reference is the definitive guide to common neurodegenerative diseases that affect humans. The book covers mechanisms of some of the most well-known neurodegenerative diseases, their biomarkers, neuropharmacology, and emerging treatment strategies.

The book introduces the subject of neurodegeneration by outlining the biochemistry, pathophysiology and multifactorial neurological mechanisms (the role of genetics, environmental factors and mitochondrial damage, for example). Next, it explains some of the most studied diseases, namely, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis. Subsequent chapters delve into current knowledge about diagnostic and immunological biomarkers, followed by a summary of novel therapeutic strategies.

Special attention has been given to the role of medicinal plants in attempting to treat neurodegenerative diseases, as well as the public health burden posed by these conditions.

Key Features:

  • - give readers an overview of multifactorial disease mechanisms in neurodegeneration
  • - covers some major neurodegenerative diseases in detail
  • - covers diagnostic and immunological biomarkers
  • - explores current therapeutic strategies and drug targets in common neurodegenerative diseases
  • - offers a simple presentation with references for advanced readers

The book is a suitable reference for all readers, including students, research scholars, and physicians who are interested in the mechanisms and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.

Audience: Students, research scholars, and physicians who are interested in the mechanisms and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
