Item description for Inflammatory Cells and Mediators in CNS Disease (New Horizons in Therapeutics , Vol 2) by Robert R. Ruffolo Jr....
Inflammation is a common consequence of injury or disease to any tissue, yet it can have disastrous and lasting effects in the central nervous system. The most widely known example of this would be swelling of the brain after a severe head trauma. Inflammation is a natural reaction to trauma, yet in the brain the extra pressure caused can result in restriction of the blood supply leading to permanent damage to the tissues. Various different pathological conditions can, directly or indirectly, cause general or localized inflammation to varying degrees. This book looks at the causes and long-term effects of inflammation in the CNS as a result of various conditions, and the therapeutic opportunities presented in each case. Each chapter is written by an acknowledged leader in the field.
