Описание: Differentiating multiple sclerosis (MS) from alternative demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system and systemic medical conditions that mimic MS is challenging. A simple three-step approach is used in this text to guide readers through clinical cases to define MS and rule out competing causes. Case presentations are used to illustrate simple pearls and other clues that will aid clinicians in assessing and managing difficult clinical situations. The chapters are organized to reflect challenges regarding specific anatomical territories affected by MS and its mimickers, namely evaluation of impairment in the optic nerves, brain, brainstem, cerebellum, and spinal cord. Specific examples are used where the author or the treating physician was correct or incorrect in investigating or managing a particular question. The wisdom of hindsight thus generated becomes an invaluable and enduring lesson. The text is written in a coaching style, buttressed by the strong pedagogic wisdom of the author.

Описание: . Multiple Sclerosis: A Mechanistic View provides a unique view of the pathophysiology of multiple sclerosis (MS) and related disorders. As the only book on the market to focus on the mechanisms of MS rather than focusing on the clinical features and treatment of the disease, it describes the role of genetic and environmental factors in the pathogenesis of MS, the role of specific cells in the pathophysiology of the disease, and the pathophysiology of inflammatory and neurodegenerative disorders related to MS. . The book provides discussion of neurodegeneration and neuroregeneration, two critical emerging areas of research, as well as detailed discussion of the mechanisms of action of the approved and investigational drugs for treatment of MS and the emerging role of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRI) in investigations into MS. . It is the only book on the market to offer comprehensive coverage of the known mechanisms of MS and related diseases, and contains contributions from physicians and researchers who are worldwide experts in the field of study.

Описание: This handbook is a collection of clinical narratives that underscore the heterogeneous and unpredictable presentation of multiple sclerosis (MS) and give real-world clinical context to recent drug developments. This accessible and concise publication is intended to be used by a wide range of medical professionals, from specialist neurologists to medical trainees with an interest in neurology. An ideal clinical resource, Case Studies in Multiple Sclerosis provides an evidence-based discussion of each case, with an aim to enhance effective diagnosis and treatment of patients with MS and MS-related conditions.
Описание: This comprehensive resource examines all aspects of the care of the patient with multiple sclerosis. It focuses on the themes of: the importance of patient-centred nursing; comprehensive assessment of the person with MS; the wide variation in the course of MS; and the role of the nurse.

Описание: Part of the Oxford Neurology Library series, this practical pocketbook will summarise the latest understanding of what might cause the disease, the methods of diagnosis and assessment, and current management techniques.
Описание: This monograph is an up-to-date report of the most recent advances in the research on primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) - a variant of MS - and of the considerable progress made in understanding it. The reviews, written by leading scientists in this field, clearly demonstrate that the advances in understanding the natural history, pathophysiology, pathogenesis and pathology of PPMS are being extended by ongoing studies of the MS plaque and normal appearing white matter using magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopic techniques. This confluence of thought provides insight into possible disease mechanisms.

Описание: Examines the role of neurons in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and the changes that occur in neurons as a result of MS. This book explains the basis for symptom production, remission and progress in MS. It brings together information from clinical, pathological, imaging, molecular, and pharmacological realms to explore the neurobiology of MS.

Описание: Multiple sclerosis is the most common debilitating neurological disease in people under the age of forty in the developed world. Many publications cover medical and clinical approaches to the disease; however, The Biology of Multiple Sclerosis provides a clear and concise up-to-date overview of the scientific literature on the various theories of MS pathogenesis. Covering the main elements of scientific research into multiple sclerosis, the book contains chapters on the neuropathology of the disease as well as an account of the most extensively used animal model experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. The book contains chapters regarding the role of viruses in the development of multiple sclerosis. Viruses have long been implicated and chapters on animal models based on virus infection, as well as their possible role in the etiology of MS, are included. Of interest to MS researchers, the book is written to also be of value to postgraduate and medical students.
