Inflammation in Parkinson's Disease Scientific and Clinical Aspects


Inflammation in Parkinson's Disease Scientific and Clinical Aspects by Madhavi Thomas

Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease with a prevalence of 0.1% of the global population, and 5-10% patients are under 40 years of age. Several text books have been published on various aspects of PD to date, including research and clinical aspects. However these do not emphasize the inflammatory pathways and pathways of neurodegeneration in PD. Inflammation in Parkinson's Disease brings advances in research together with current literature and evidence. This concise volume covers the fundamentals of neuroimmunology and inflammatory models, the interactions between pathways of neurodegeneration and follows the concept of research work undertaken from basic science to clinical trials. Researchers, clinicians, and students interested in Parkinson's Disease are provided with a comprehensive view of translational research methods and an insight needed for developing future therapies aimed at disease modulation.


This is an excellent monograph about inflammatory mechanics of PD. ... this is an excellent book for neurologists, neurosurgeons, residents, and medical students. Neuromuscular and Stereotactic Fellows will also like this book. (Joseph J. Grenier,, March, 2016)
