This volume serves as a succinct and well-organized reference volume focused on inflammatory CNS disease to a wide audience. The text is comprised of four sections revolving around current areas of interest in the fields of neuroimmunology, virology, pharmacology and disease. Sections of this text focus on a specific category of diseases as well as the pharmacological, virological, and immunological effects of and on the disease. Although many have covered this topic, few have provided a volume as concise and efficient. Each disease is broken down on a variety of scientific levels without getting into the history of the disease. This approach provides a succinct overview of a specific subject encompassing interrelated topics pertaining to neurology, immunology and disease. The information provided in Central Nervous System Diseases and Inflammation will be useful for researchers, clinicians, as well as a valuable resource for students interested in the fascinating arena of neuroinflammation.
