DESCRIERE

Plant Extracts in Neurodegenerative Disease examines the therapeutic efficacy of plant extracts and the lead compounds contained therein that can significantly improve symptoms of diseases of the brain. Providing insights into the protective mechanisms of these bioactive plant compounds to treat Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, motor neuron disease, and other neurodegenerative diseases, the book also discusses the pros and cons of using these types of treatments, along with perspectives to overcome current challenges. With chapters looking at individual diseases, readers will learn about studies unique to each condition, including Huntington’s Disease, spinocerebellar ataxia, SMA, ALS and prion disease.
