About this book

This book covers the use of nanomedicine in the delivery of neuroprotective agents, including pharmacological drugs, stem cells, neurotrophic factors, monoclonal antibodies and enzymes to induce greater beneficial effects in neurologic diseases. Thus, the main purpose of the book is to explore the delivery of drugs either alone or in combination with stem cells to enhance neuroprotection in neurological diseases. Brain pathology associated with acute trauma such as head injury and brain blast injury can also be managed using novel treatment strategies. In addition, emphasis is made that standard patterns of brain pathology may be complicated with multiple comorbidity factors where one agent alone is not sufficient to induce brain protection. Enzymes and antibodies may help in combination and enhance the efficacy when administered through nanotechnology. Progress in Nanomedicine in Neurologic Diseases will encourage further research in the field of neuroprotection, brain injury, neurodegenerative diseases, neuropharmacology, neuropathology, and neurology. Students and researchers along with policy makers, teachers and health care professionals may also benefit from the findings of the book for enhanced patients care.
