Great progress has been made in the understanding and prevention of secondary brain damage from acute cerebral disorders, such as trauma and ischemia. Advances may be concerned in particular with better organization and logistics of preclinical emergency care, including rapid arrival of well-trained medical staff on the scene of an accident and of transportation to a competent hospital. Nevertheless, it is a safe assumption that development of secondary brain damage from both intra- and extracranial causes still represents a major

This book presents comprehensive reviews for both translational research and clinical trials on cell therapy for stroke. Cerebral stroke is still a leading cause of death and disability. However, despite intensive research, few treatment options are available. The therapeutic potential of cell transplantation has been studied for various pathological conditions of the central nervous system (CNS) including traumatic brain injury, traumatic spinal cord injury, degenerative disease, demyelinating disease and ischemic stroke, as the injured neural tissue in the CNS has

Although there are over 400,000 people each year in the United States alone who suffer from traumatic injury to the central nervous system (CNS), no phar macological treatment is currently available. Considering the enormity of the problem in terms of human tragedy as well as the economic burden to families and societies alike, it is surprising that so little effort is being made to develop treatments for these disorders. Although no one can become inured to the victims of brain or

Acute Spinal Cord injury (SCI) is a complex disorder involving a sudden traumatic insult to the cord resulting in deficits to ambulatory, sensory and autonomic function. At present, no effective acute treatment or rehabilitative therapy exists. Recently, several studies show that Riluzole has neuroprotective effect and promotes functional and neurological recoveries in animal models of brain and spinal cord ischemic and traumatic injuries; however, hepatotoxicity is a significant side effect concern for this therapy. Therefore, pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD)
