This practical volume examines a number of topics that explore the current status of immunotherapy and diagnostic markers for neurodegenerative disorders. With a focus on Alzheimer’s disease, the first sections of the book examine immunotherapeutic approaches for the aforementioned disease as well as for Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease,
amongst others. The last section of the book covers the importance of biomarker techniques to catch these diseases early enough for the treatments to be most useful. Written for the Methods in
Pharmacology and Toxicology
series, this book contains the kind of detailed descriptions and implementation advice that will offer a smooth transition into the lab.

Authoritative and useful, Immunotherapy and Biomarkers in
Neurodegenerative Disorders
aims to aid in the continued progress in the development of novel immune-based drugs and diagnostic tools for these devastating brain diseases.
