About this book


A distinguished international panel of authors define our current understanding of neuronal damage after ischemia and critically review the significant recent developments and progress in cerebrovascular accident (CVA) drug trials, both in animal models and in the clinical setting. These leading basic and fundamental authorities survey such important new drugs as calcium-influx inhibitors, free-radical scavenging drugs, glutamate and glycinergic antagonists, and immune suppressors. They also evaluate all the latest findings concerning calcium homeostasis, glutamate toxicity, gene activation, and the role of free radicals, glycine, and hormones. Chapters devoted to the neuroimaging of stroke, clinical trials, and the role of cerebral immune activation complete this informative collection of cutting-edge reviews.
