HIGHLY SELECTIVE NEUROTOXINS: Basic and Clinical Applications
Richard M. Kostrzewa, Department of Pharmacology, East Tennessee State University, Johnson City, TN
In Highly Selective Neurotoxins, experienced experimentalists critically review and evaluate the most common and important neurotoxins used today to precisely destroy selected neurons. Each informative chapter thoroughly describes the significant mechanisms of action of a neurotoxin, as well as fully discussing the limits on its use and its clinical applicability. Several clinically oriented chapters are significant for neurologists treating Parkinsonism, for psychiatrists treating drug abuse and neurodegenerative disorders, and for primary care physicians treating patients with appetite suppressants.
Highly Selective Neurotoxins provides all the basic knowledge needed to obtain a predictable experimental outcome with these neurotoxins. Its authoritative coverage of the newest findings on experimentally important neurotoxins makes their proper use and their limitations clear and practical from both experimental and theoretical points of view.
