Discover potential targets that lie in the overlap.
Interactions between the nervous and immune systems and potential targets that lie in the overlap
Neuroimmunology is a field that is growing as researchers find interactions between nervous and immune systems not previously known, and discover that some well-known disorders perhaps fall into this overlap category.
This eBook is an overview of the immune system and inflammation as it relates to pain, specifically neuropathic pain and covers the following:
Immune system and inflammation
Pain Processing and Neuropathic pain
Cell Types involved in neuro-inflammation aspects of Neuropathic pain
Potential inflammation-related drug targets for Neuropathic pain
Preclinical models of Neuropathic pain
The interactions between the nervous system and immune system in the case of neuropathic pain make for a very complex story that is beginning to unfold. Fortunately, a variety of preclinical models for the simulation of neuropathic pain in humans have been in use for some time and enable researchers to advance our understanding of disease mechanisms in the preclinical setting.
Excerpt from the eBook:
"Some of the most interesting and rapidly developing areas in biomedical science are those being built in between the lines previously drawn around classical fields of study. Neuroimmunology is just one of many examples and is a field that is growing as researchers find interactions between the nervous and immune systems not previously known, and discover that some well-known disorders perhaps fall into this overlap category.
