By C. LeRoy Blank, Russell J. Lewis, Roland E. Lehr (auth.), Richard M. Kostrzewa (eds.)

In hugely Selective Neurotoxins, skilled experimentalists seriously assessment and review the most typical and demanding neurotoxins used this present day to exactly wreck chosen neurons. each one informative bankruptcy completely describes the numerous mechanisms of motion of a neurotoxin, in addition to totally discussing the boundaries on its use and its scientific applicability. numerous clinically orientated chapters are major for neurologists treating Parkinsonism, for psychiatrists treating drug abuse and neurodegenerative issues, and for fundamental care physicians treating sufferers with urge for food suppressants.

hugely Selective Neurotoxins offers all of the simple wisdom had to receive a predictable experimental final result with those neurotoxins. Its authoritative assurance of the latest findings on experimentally vital neurotoxins makes their right use and their obstacles transparent and useful from either experimental and theoretical issues of view.

Example text

Although it has been suggested that Parkinson's disease may result from an abnormality in growth factor response with aging, additional research will be necessary to examine possible changes in neurotrophic factor expression during the progression of Parkinson's disease (324). Although it is unknown if a loss of trophic support underlies the etiology or contributes to the neuropathology observed in Parkinson's disease (248,325), the usefulness of the neurotoxins to lesion dopaminergic neurons in adult animals as a model of Parkinson's disease has allowed the investigation of strategies using trophic factors and transplantation to determine whether these agents may facilitate recovery and provide protection against the loss of dopaminergic neurons by neurotoxins (326).
