Nanomedicine in Central Nervous System Injury and Repair (IRN), Volume 137, the latest release in the International Review of Neurobiology series presents comprehensive chapters that cover a broad range of topics, including, but not limited to, how Diabetes exacerbates methamphetamine induced blood-brain barrier breakdown, edema formation, oxidative stress and myelin damage, and how Focal blast brain injury induces rapid edema formation, blood-brain barrier breakdown and intensive cellular damage. In addition, the Neuroprotective effects of a multimodal drug cerebrolysin are explored, as is how Nanowired cerebrolysin potentiates neuroprotective effects of histamine H3 receptor inverse agonist and antagonist with partial H4 agonist in Alzheimer's Disease. This series reviews current knowledge and understanding on how to repair the damaged spinal cord and brain with nanomedicine, detailing new therapeutic advances and providing a starting point for researchers and practitioners entering the field.
