Neuroinfectious Diseases brings to light the latest information in a field that is rapidly expanding as a result of the re-emergence of unvaccinated populations. Newly emerging infections may rapidly grow to epidemic proportions and spread over large geographical areas. Infectious diseases of the nervous system, for example, can be caused by a diverse range of infectious agents as well as post-infectious neurological syndromes. In this book, renowned experts review the most recent advances to provide a timely and up-to-date overview of the field.
- Covers emerging diseases like Ebola, Chikungunya, West Nile and Zika
- Examines the role of the systemic immune system and neuroimmune interaction
- Discusses animal models, in vitro drug discovery, and human studies
- Addresses the dearth of clinical trials and how research can proceed
- Looks ahead to future potential epidemics like tick-borne illnesses
